Collection: L.A. Girl 2013 ColorPop Nail Polish [Launch]
L.A. Girl isn’t a brand I normally see where I live, so when I spotted them introduced on Wal-Mart Canada, I thought I’d try out some of their nail polishes. I feel like I must have a couple of their older polishes from trips to the US, but I don’t really remember them!
Today’s polish, a vibrant blue cream called Roar, is from their ColorPop Nail Color line, launched in 2013.
The formula isn’t great, as you might expect from a lower-priced nail polish. It does go on quite sheerly, so I needed three coats to get opaque coverage.
Once on, though, the color is nice and clear. The finish is just OK, and would need to be improved with a top coat. You get what you pay for with this product. In this price range, I’d still recommend Wet n Wild and Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear. It’s a shame, because they have some very cool and fun shades in the line!
It’s just going to be one of those days, isn’t it?
L.A. Girl ColorPop Nail Polish is 0.47 fl oz / 14 mL and retails for US$4, although I’m sure it can be found cheaper in stores. I paid CA$2.99 at Wal-Mart. I do not see formaldehyde, toluene, dibutyl phthalate (DBP), camphor, or formaldehyde resin in the ingredient list. It is made in China and the brand is cruelty-free.
L.A. Girl is owned by Beauty 21 Cosmetics, who also own similar brand L.A. Colors. The L.A. Girl brand and its parent company were founded in 1985. Beauty 21 is based in Ontario, CA, USA.
