LA Girl Disco Brites: Disco Inferno and LA Girl Fruity: Strawberry Delight Swatches
When I was in Rite Aid, I saw a display for an L.A. Girl collection called Disco Brites black light nail polish. I can't really think of an occasion where I would be exposed to a black light in my daily life, but the colors are fun :)
I picked up a few from this collection but the brightness of Disco Inferno drew me in first :)
Disco Inferno is an orange leaning Red. It is pretty sheer, like a jelly. I used 3 thin coats in the photo. I love the color, very bright and Summery. Be sure to use a base coat first, though because this one stained a bit.
When I spotted another LA Girl collection, Fruity, a line of scented nail polishes, I couldn't resist a few of those, either :)
I added 1 coat of Strawberry Delight over Disco Inferno. I don't know whether to call it a large glass fleck or a small flakie, but the effect is really fun! I may have to pick up the rest of the Fruity polishes that I left behind. I don't really care for the "scented" aspect, but I love the finish! This one smelled a bit like nail polish & strawberries while it was drying, but once it was completely dry it didn't really smell much like anything, just a little sweet.
The flakes are mostly coral, but you can see some green & gold, too! The polish is very sheer. I would only use this one layered as a top coat.
I bought these both at Rite Aid if you want to find them. With my Wellness Card I got them for $2.69, regular price $2.99. They are also available at cherryculture.com and right now the Fruity polishes are $3.50 and the Disco Brites are $2.50.
Has anyone tried these yet?
What is it? Flakie? Glass Flecked? I'm leaning toward Flakie.
