L-A Glitter Nails - New Glitter Mixes! (swatches and review)

Hello everyone! Today I have some swatches of new glitter mixes available from the ever awesome L-A Glitter Nails. I already have pretty much the full collection of fine glitters and am now starting to work my way through this new collection! Named after Fleetwood Mac songs, they were always going to be a hit with me, and I picked three to start my new obsession!

First up is Gypsy (shown here over Barry M Gelly Sugar Apple), which has turquoise blue, spring green and yellow matte shapes. Its got a real mermaid-y feel to it and went on smoothly and easily. It was also easy to get plenty of glitter on the brush at each pass (sooooo important with glitter!). The first two photos show one coat, the second two show two coats :)

Next up is Sara and it is shown here over white. The base has a pink tinge which I like as its made the white look like candy floss and is full of bright pink and black matte shapes. Coverage was good and the formula was again easy to work with. Again, the first two photos are one coat, and the second two show two coats.

Finally, we have Little Lies (shown here over OPI My Vampire Is Buff). The base is clear and it has orange, yellow, white and black matte shapes sprinkled through it. The formula was great, but I did have to do a little fishing about in the bottle to get as much glitter with this one. Once it was on though, its super cute. Perfect candy corn colours if you're thinking ahead to Halloween already (No? Just me then...) Same rule applies - first two pics are one coat, second two show two coats :)

Overall I'm really impressed with these mixes! The colour combos are great and they were really easy to work with (I have Gypsy over Barry M Gelly Prickly Pear on my toenails for the weekend!) and they are an absolute steal at £1 each or a set of three for £2.50 in Lyka-Ann's Etsy shop. You can also keep up to date with her new projects and collections on Facebook. I'm off to order some more... :)

  1. These are lovely little glitter mixes... and yes, when I saw the third one I immediately thought candy corn too, before I'd even read your text! Hive mind.

  2. So glad you like them! I agree with the fishing around, for some reason Little Lies and a few others can be a little stubborn ;) but after a bit of shaking and searching, you get the goods! Lol :D

    1. It was still easier than many indies I've tried :D
