LA Colours Magnetic Force NP415
The super lovely @FabFingertips1 sent me this beautiful polish as nail mail and I swatched it ages ago but completely forgot to take photos. So here it is, finally! LA Colours Magnetic Force NP415 is a coral pink creme polish with a gorgeously summery gold shimmer when it catches the light. LA Colour polishes are very affordable (I think they’re about £1 in the places near me which is ridiculous).
This polish is perfect in two coats. If you can get your hands on some LA Colours, I really recommend them. You can see the full range on their website HERE.

I bought this polish absolutely ages ago but haven’t had a chance to swatch it. And I wish I hadn’t waited so long!
This is a famous dupe for Clarins 230 and it is beautiful. It’s a super sheer indigo jelly polish with really fine multichrome glitter that catches the light. In different light it shimmers pink, gold, green, orange…GORGEOUS. This polish is so vibrant and bright, it’s even more beautiful than the swatches show. It actually reminds me of the glittery glaze that Krispy Kreme put on their doughnuts!
The only downside to this polish is the size: 4.5ml! Which is teeny tiny. And to get up to full coverage this took 4 coats. FOUR. So now ¼ of the polish is gone after one manicure…less than ideal. I think it’s designed to be a layering polish, but most people won’t know that unless they’ve read a review first which I think it a bit crap. If it’s designed for layering then it should be marketed as a top coat. I will definitely only be using it for layering from now on even though I LOVE the way this polish looks by itself.
(Feb ’16 EDIT: It looks like Max Factor has reissued ‘this’ polish. I say that with inverted commas as from the reviews I’ve heard it’s a very different shade. You can get it HERE)
