I hope your day was great =]!!! This evening, I have swatches and a review of a new-to-me brand called LA Splash Cosmetics. This company is so fun because they create super unique and bright colors that really make a "splash"....haha =P Lets get this show on the road =]!
I've had this thing for blues lately and this color did NOT disappoint! I absolutely love this shade, it's a sky blue metallic with just a hint of blue shimmer =] The formula wasn't -horrible- for this polish, but it was a tad on the thick side. Either way, it still applied decently and dried fairly quickly! I'll definitely be thinning it out before I use it again, though =P
Oi. I'm torn on this one. It's not a color I would choose for myself, but I could certainly appreciate how unique it is. I can't decide if this is a gold, a green, or a brown, and that sort of drives me nuts, haha! Even though the color was interesting, the formula wasn't my cup of tea at all =/ This polish is super opaque, but it was also SUPER thick...I wonder if it dehydrated a little in the mail or something? Because of how goopy it was, it bubbled a bit and you can see that in the pictures =/ I'll have to try to bring this one back to life with some thinner, as well! This had an interesting finish...not quite matte, but not shiny. I guess "satin-y" would be the proper term =P
Torn again, ugh! I absolutely ADORE the color of this polish (it's dark purple glitters in a light purple shimmery base was super pretty, I've never seen anything like it!), but the formula on this was so incredibly goopy! I'm certain it was due to dehydration with this one because my bottle is missing about a third of the polish, but it didn't leak in my package...I don't exactly know how that happened, but I have to admit I was bummed =/ Figures that the color I like best would have the yuckiest formula =P!
I really don't think this shade of coral worked with my skin tone, but it had the best formula out of all of these polishes. I love the holo micro glitters that are jam packed in this polish; the name is quite appropriate =]! It isn't super opaque so I would recommend layering this guy over -something-, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing, I have many layering polishes that I LOVE! Since this is slightly sheer, I may try to see how this looks over a brighter pink... a touch of extra sparkle never hurt anyone =]!
Nail Art Glitter
Confession time, this was my first experience with a pot of nail glitter! I won't lie, I was nervous about making giant mess...and yes, it was messy, but not nearly as bad as I anticipated! I felt like the glitter was fairly similar to Sparkling Jellyfish, so I thought I'd layer it over that! This glitter is GORGEOUS...in the pot it looks coralish, but on my nail it was more of a true pink (it just looks coral because it's over a coral, haha =P) with a green/yellow flash. I will DEFINITELY be using this again in my nail art and possibly in some franken polishes!
Weeeell there ya go! LA Splash has some gorgeous, creative colors that really are worth looking into. However, beware of those thick formulas! I'm really hoping it was just a slight fluke with dehydration...have any of you tried this brand before? What were your opinions on the formula?
