LA Colors Green Satin: A Bargain Hunter's Answer to Chanel Jade Nail Lacquer
While perusing through the aisles of my local dollar store, I came across the stand of LA Colors Nail Polish. The lovely shade of Green Satin stood out to me most. With my lemmings for Chanel Jade Nail Lacquer, Green Satin seemed like a possible dupe for those on a budget.
Green Satin is a pastel minty green with pearl laced through it. Application is no fun. It's actually a bit streaky and sheer. Allow plenty of drying time, otherwise you will surely get a smudging. For swatches, I used a whopping 4 coats with OPI Start To Finish Base & Top Coat. At that, it is not completely opaque, there is some sheerness to it.
The good? It's a great price and the color is beautiful. While the formula isn't amazing, I think I'll just make sure I have the time and patience to apply it.
While I only paid $1 CAD plus tax, on the web you may want to check out here to pick up your own bottle.
