L.A. Colors Color Craze Nail Polish (swatches)

A few months ago a really sweet twitter friend, Jeweled Thumb, was nice enough to send me a goodie package. This packaged included L.A. Colors polishes, which I was very excited to try as I had heard about them but have never tried them up until now!

Hi, pretties!

left to right: Electrified, Magnetic Force, Radiation, Live

Electrified- this is a metalic pink with shimmer. It applied very smoothly and opaque, this was 2 coats.

Magnetic Force- This is a medium orange. This color was more on the sheer side, and seemed to look more like a jelly polish. This was three coats.

Radiation- This is a blue-green mermaid color. It was another jelly-like, sheer color. This was also three coats.

Live- A metallic silver, very foil-y. This was another one that applied amazingly with two coats.

Live reminded me a lot of Zoya's Trixie. They are near identical and Live is a great dupe!
Index and Ring finger- L.A. Colors Live
Middle and Pinkie finger- Zoya Trixie

Another thing that's interesting is that the "cap" part comes off, and then you have a smaller cap which is attached to the brush. That's very NARS-esque, my NARS Sheer Glow does this too.

I was very impressed with the L.A. Colors nail polish, especially the metalics. The metalic nail polishes, Electrified and Live, applied so smoothly and were very opaque. I highly recommend these if you live shimmery colors. You can find L.A. Colors on Cherryculture for $2. I love that they are so affordable yet have great quality!

Have you tried the L.A. Colors Color Craze Nail Polishes? How did you like them? Will you be picking any up?

P.S. There won't be an Eyes of March post today because I am makeupless-ly studying for an exam =[

FTC: These polishes were sent to me by a generous twitter friend!

I just did a NOTD on an Illamasqua polish I just bought, and it did the same thing where the "cap" part comes off, I was wondering if you have any adn if they do that?..
