New Nail Polish Colors: L.A. Girl Flare Swatches

LA Girls Flare Rapture nail polish

Silver Gold Glitter Holo nail polish

I love me some L.A Girl Flare nail polishes! Here's just a few new colors from L.A. Girl Flare. Some brand spankin new colors, and some older ones that's been around for a while.

One of their newest colors, Rapture. Glitter plus holo equals winner, ding ding ding! Now what gal doesn't love these two combinations! Described as a silverish, platinum gold holo in a clear base.

Turquoise blue creme nail polish swatch 

 Nirvana, not your standard sky blue creme. A mix between teal and sky blue. Loves it!

LA girls Flare jade green nail polish

LA girls flare sea grass nail polish

Another new shade from L.A. Girl, Sea Grass. A gorgeous sea green creme that applied perfectly in two applications. This looks similar to the shade Lauren Conrad was sporting in a episode of The Hills a couple weeks ago. We all know how much she loves Urban Outfitters, so it's a good possibility. 

Green Blue nail polish comparisons

When I first laid my eyes on Sea Grass, I thought it was going to be a close dupe to another one of my favorite colors, Tropical. But, it's defintitely more green when compared in the swatch above.

LA Girls Flare sunny yellow nail polish

pastel yellow nail polish

Sunny, a bright pastel yellow creme.

LA girls flare hype pink nail polish

Hype, a mid tone barbie pink creme.

LA Girls flare spunky nail polish

Spunky is much more purple in real life. For some reason, this didn't capture true to life. A magenta purple creme.

Love L.A. Girl? Check out some more L.A. Girl Flare swatches. You can find L.A. Girl Flare polishes at Forever 21, Urban Outfitters, and Cherry Culture.

Im sooo happy for this, LA Girl Flare bearly gets any love and I appreciate you showing the world how beautiful the colors come out. Sea Grass is the BEST ONE! Oh I have one question, the color that you say is magenta would you call it a rassberry creme also ?

I think I've seen Spunky irl, is it a dupe of Bermuda Shorts by Essie's 2008 neon collection?

Hi Amanda, You def have to get some, they rock! :) Hi Ugot2luvlana, My pleasure, I love LA Girls Flare. No, it's much more purple, much like the purple neons with a shiny finish. Hi Deedee, I haven't compared these two yet, but looking at the bottle color, I would say yes :)

Hi Steph,
Love your blog. You wrote: Always wrap the free edge or tip throughout each step. I didn't see this step in the video. Could you please explain how to do the wrap process and with what material. Thank you.

I am wondering if these gel polishes can be used with other gels. I have a different system with a different brand of base coat and top coat, can the different brands of gel mix?

I've had my kit for a couple of months now and love the way it lasts; but the Structure and Brilliance brushes are starting to stiffen and so is the gel in the bottles. Anyone else having that issue? Is there a way to thin them out?

Hi, does anyone know if I can thin out the red carpet base coat so that it is easier to apply?

Hi Prinzy,
It was a gorgeous color! I remember picking up a few bottles because I loved the color so much! lol! Actually, yes, I'm launching a store in the next couple of weeks. I have everything built, I'm just working on the Terms and Conditions right now, so it should be very, very soon.

I only have about 10 Studio M colors in the store currently, but I will be taking special pre-orders once it opens.

Hi Sarah,
I'm not sure about retail stores, but you can still find them on

Sarah said, on Jun 12th, 2012 2:19 pm regarding Summer Collection: China Glaze Poolside
Can I still buy them in the stores now?

I've been playing with this system for about a month now. I love it! When I first started I used the clear just so I could get a feel for it. Then I got adventurous and tried a "sandwich" with a China Glaze color. It probably would have stayed on longer if I had been able to seal off the edges, but my nails were so short it was a bit difficult. The next time I used RCM gel polish in Simply Stunning (a pale slightly shimmery nude color). This time I had gotten enough practice to really make my coats thin and it worked out fabulous. I'm trying to send all my friends the Ulta 20% coupon (5/26 is the last day) so they can get a kit for about $64. :) Now I hope to get a little creative with color combos and nail design. Thanks for the review.
