A while back I purchased several LA Colors Color Craze polishes from Dollar Tree, and I'm finally getting around to showing you some of them (I showed you Radiation here if you'd like to see). I really like LA Colors polishes. They're toluene and formaldehyde free, cruelty free, come in a fun assortment of shades, and usually retail for around $2 each. For the most part, you can find these at local beauty supplies, online at Cherry Culture, and of course lately a lot of people have been spotting them at Dollar Tree for, of course, just $1 a piece. If you can find these at your local Dollar Tree, I say snatch some up ASAP because they're definitely worth a buck. Oh, don't forget about the little three-pack that's been surfacing at CVS locations lately--you get three full-size bottles for just $2.99.
All of the shades below were purchased at Dollar Tree, but you can also find these shades online here.
LA Colors Color Craze nail polish in Current (retail: $1 at Dollar Tree)
Current is one of those what-you-see-is-what-you-get shades. The color in the bottle is exactly what you see on your nails. That's pretty refreshing sometimes! Current is a bit sheer though, so I needed three coats for good opacity. But other than that, I found no issues with application and the staying power of Current was pretty great too. Looking at this color actually made me long for summer for a minute (and summer's not even my favorite season--winter is!).
LA Colors Color Craze nail polish in Wired (retail: $1 at Dollar Tree)
Wired is a straightforward royal blue shimmer, but if you don't already own a royal blue shimmer, this would be a good place to start. Wired required two coats for full opacity and I found no application issues at all. I like wearing Wired on my toes and I think it might be fun with a little bit of nail art as well.
LA Colors Color Craze nail polish in Nuclear Energy (retail: $1 at Dollar Tree)
I wanted to show you Nuclear Energy without a top coat (no top coat in the pics above) because I don't know how many times I've been burned by colors like this. Whenever I purchase a neon purple creme (or something like it) it always, always ends up drying to a matte finish. I was VERY pleasantly surprised to discover that Nuclear Energy dries shiny. Yay! I really love this shade--it's not too bright, but it's just a wonderful punch of purplish-berry-wine. If you're an OPI My Aunti Drinks Chianti fan, I think you'll like Nuclear Energy. It's got the same vibe, only brighter and more intense. The only downside is that this color goes on a bit sheer, so it does require three coats.
So, have you spotted LA Colors at your local Dollar Tree? Have you purchased any colors? I'd love to hear from you!
