L.A. Colors: Atomic

Quickie post of my NOTD (Nail of the Day, for those who don’t know).  I bought this polish last year when I was just getting hooked – it was only like, a $1.50 or something silly, and it looked fun.  In actual fact, since buying this polish I’ve kind of steered clear of aqua/teal shades because I thought this looked kind of hideous on me.  It’s a little aggressive, very in-your-face, but I received TONS of compliments on it, the one or two times I actually wore it.  This is the first time I’ve worn it since then, with the same results – people love it!  I still think it looks kind of ugly, but in a fascinating way.  And, now that I’m more knowledgeable about polish, I realize that its a jelly!  Which kind of makes it awesome.  So, I won’t be giving this away any time soon, it seems to be too valuable!

Regardez:I’d say the second picture is the most accurate.  Application was OK, the formula is thicker than I’d like, but it only required two coats and in the end went on just fine.  Base/top coat included in the photos. *Note: This polish does stain!!  Not terribly but it is a drawback, nonetheless.

From my experience, you all are too nice to say that I’m right, that a polish isn’t lookin’ too fine, but feel free to say the truth (lol).

No, really, tell me what you really think!

FYI: You can buy L.A. Colors at Lawtons locations around Canada.

Thanks for reading! 🙂

    Girl, you must have either read my mind, or snuck into my house: Today I pulled every shade of turquoise/teal/aqua polish that I own so that I could see which one I felt like wearing (don’t know why I’m so into that shade lately). I LOVE THIS COLOUR ON YOU!! Seriously!! And the fact that it’s a jelly finish just upped it’s cool factor. Best part? $1.50. Yee-haw!! Enjoy and wear it proudly! lol!!

      I really grew to like the polish over the course of the wear, I’m still not totally sold on the color on my skin but the jelly formula more than made up for it! If nothing else its a conversation starter 🙂 Thanks for the opinions, ladies!!

    It is a very nice colour and I think it looks good, but there are definitley other shades that look better on you. Just my opinion.

    Um, I’m not quite seeing the ugly. (Yeah, you probably expected that from me, but seriously.) Maybe you feel how I do about blue nail polishes. I love the way they look in the bottles, but I end up hating how they look on my hands. I have a dozen blues waiting to be reviewed but I keep taking them off because I can’t stand to see them on my fingertips. Or maybe this is a downer after the stunning trumpet-blowing debut of Across The Universe, LOL!
