Swatch: LA Girl Crowd Surfing

Hi everyone!

I hope you all had a lovely Easter and didn’t miss me too much! I didn’t get around to blogging over the long weekend but I’m back to show you an absolutely glorious polish. Painted Fingertips | Swatch: LA Girl Crowd SurfingThis is 2 coats of LA Girl Crowd Surfing over a base of Essence Walk on the Wild Side. You might recognise this as the base from my recent one-stroke flower nails. I’m glad I remembered to take pictures before the nail art as well because this polish is just spectacular! Painted Fingertips | Swatch: LA Girl Crowd SurfingCrowd Surfing is a very sheer green base filled with very fine green glitter and green-orange flakies. As you can see, with 2 coats you get a good volume of the glitters and flakies. I would definitely recommend using a base colour as the green base is extremely sheer and the flakies look best over a dark base in any case. In this case, I used a dark green base, but you could go with other shades as well for a different look. Painted Fingertips | Swatch: LA Girl Crowd SurfingThe formula on this polish is good and the flakies apply with no problem and no fishing required.

    That’s a pretty flakie indeed! I wish we could get LA Girl’s over here because I’ve seen a bunch of super pretty shades from this brand!

      They have some great shades especially for a cheaper brand! I love their 3D holographic polishes 🙂

    Wow, this is phenomenal for a budget brand!

    • http://paintedfingertips.wordpress.com/ Painted Fingertips

      Right? 99% of my polishes are from budget brands because of that annoying money thing but when I can get a beauty like this, that’s ok 🙂
