I was at T.J. Maxx (have I told you I LOVE that place?!?!) the other night and had already been through all the beauty dept. and made my way over to toys to meet up with my husband and 3 year old son. As I turned the corner, along with the disney princess makeup sets was this:
I began drooling immediately! Look at those colors! They are sooo me! I personally do not understand why T.J. Maxx thinks these belong only in the children’s dept. I know I am not the only adult women who loves to rock bright colors like these! In fact, China Glaze came out with a very similar collection of colors this past spring called Electro Pop!
I believe their 6 bottle collection retailed at $42 or you could buy the individual bottles for $7 each….. This L.A. Colors collection of 7 bottles cost me just $6.99!!!! The colors are obviously not exactly the same as the China Glaze Electro Pop, but still… I think I actually like the L.A. Colors set better, and would argue that they are much more “electro” than the China Glaze ones.
Anyway, the first question you probably have is – Is L.A. Colors a good polish? Let me tell you, I love them! First of all, they are DBA, toluene, and formaldehyde free AND they are a cruelty free company (As far as I know, China Glaze is all those things as well)!! Plus, they are extremely affordable! You can find them at Dollar Stores (Dollar Tree, Dollar General, Family Dollar) and other discount stores.
To show you the quality of them as much as possible, here is what they look like with a single coat:
and here is with a second coat:
AND here (on my gracious hubby’s nails because I ran out of nails LOL) is the pink color from this L.A. Colors set next to Pool Party by China Glaze (a single coat of each):
and last of all I shall show you each individual color on my nails:
The two purple colors are very similar, but one is just a tad darker.
So it pretty much goes without saying that I adore this nail polish collection and I highly recommend you high tail it to your local T.J. Maxx to see if they also have it to get one for yourself. Otherwise, you can check your local dollar stores to see if they have any of the colors OR you can shop online here! L.A. Colors also makes all kinds of makeup. I need to check out their ingredients and try them out again, as it has been a while since I have had/used any of their makeup.
Hope you all enjoyed this review! Do you also like to wear bright colors? Which of these colors is your fav? Let me know in the comments below!
