It seems like a lot of clothing retailers are stepping into the cosmetics arena, and that’s fine with me! Forever 21 has a line of nail polishes now also. These polishes retail for $2.50 and I must say the formula on them was great!! After my trial of Urban Outfitter polishes, I was pleasantly surprised by this brand, entitled Love & Beauty…
Love & Beauty “Orchid”
A beautiful Lavender Shimmer. I wanna call this a shimmer-creme-metallic, LOL, I don’t know…It consists of really fine lavender and silver glitters; but the application was so great, it went on like a creme. It applies on the nail like the China Glaze Khrome polishes….It was really sunny when I swatched these so the sun really picked up on the silver micro glitter, but its actually more of a lavender color indoors and in a softer light. This was opaque in two coats…it kind of reminds me of China Glaze Sci-Fi a little bit, especially in the sunlight.
Love & Beauty “Jade”
I really love this color!! It’s really close to OPI’s Jade is the New Black, but not quite as dark and it has more of a yellow undertone to it while Jade is the New Black has more of a blue undertone. For the price, it has a pretty good creme formula. It was opaque in two coats, but I added a third because I have become a chronic three coater!! LOL…Overall, great job Forever21…there’s nothing better than cheap, good quality nail polish! Forever21 Nail Polishes can be found on their website or in stores. Though the website seems to have more color selection than the actual stores, however it may be different at your local Forever21 store.
I also discovered, while working on this post, in honor of Valentine’s Day Forever21 has released the Romantic Lingerie Collection…go head Forever21, already releasing collections!! 🙂 ….My eye is on the Grey, Mauve and Baby Pink, what about you?
Purple (which isn’t so purple…)
