LA Girls Flare: New Nail Polish Colors
It's a dreary, rainy Tuesday and hopefully your day is fabulous as ever! And if it's not, maybe these new L.A. Girls Flare nail polishes will cheer you up a bit!
Recap: L.A. Girls Flare is a nail polish brand you can find at Urban Outfitters or Forever 21 usually located in your mall. Personally, I prefer going to F21 because the retail cost is half the price from Urban Outfitters.
Most shades are full of life, loaded with opaque color and no true applications issues. The brush is small and thin like Essie's, but I don't mind - my petite nail beds love them!
Check em' out!
Nostalgia, a mustard creme. Yellows are on fire this summer, so it don't suprise me that this unique color pulls me in. A bit more yellow than OPI's the it color.
Celestial is a dose of foilstastic heaven...A light purplish silver that's definitely unique in my collection.
Magnetism, a great mid tone blue that's along the lines of Sephora's Blue Grotto and Misa's On the Edge.
It's Glitter time!! Fame, a purple, blue and pink glitter in a clear base. Pretty much the same version as L.A. Girl Rock Star in Overdose.
We have another L.A. Girl Rockstar look alike to Supernova. Rockstar is a semi sheer, gray jelly with holographic silver confetti.
Sunset, a peachy orange with flashes green shimmer. A lighter version than Maybelline's Sunset Prisms, love those peaches!
Eureka, a gold glitter in a clear base.
Spicy Salmon is actually really pretty! The subtle pink and gold shimmer isn't to noticeable in this Salmon orange, but still a great color!
Ravishing, rose colored pink glitter in a clear base.
You can find these in store at Urban Outfitters, Forever21 and online at Cherry Culture. Have a great day!

I love LA Girl Flare polishes, but tracking them down can be so tricky!! First, Cherry Culture only has some colors (mostly old neons like Bedazzle and Gleaming.) Second, Forever 21 online only has some colors available and some of their stores don't carry them at all. (At the one in my mall the sales people always look like I asked if they carry Windex or something ridiculous.) Third, Urban Outfitters carries a lot of colors, but they are overpriced and constantly changing, so I go to buy one color and they don't have it. Also, the name confusion doesn't help, are they named colors or are they called specific names? Sorry for the rant Steph, but I love these polishes and then I drive myself crazy trying to track them down. (Last part of rant now, I swear, ha ha) And why doesn't the LA Girl website carry them? Does that seem odd to anyone else? Ok...I'm done. Sorry again Steph, you know I adore your blog and as always, thanks for the swatches and info.

I absolutely love the LA Girl Flare line! The quality surpasses the price, and the color selection is absolutely gorgeous. Going to pick some of these babies up next time I go to Forever 21. Thanks for sharing these Steph!<3

I'm with Betty. (grabs pitchfork with nailpolish-deprived gleam in my eye)

I really like Rockstar and Sunset. I agree with Betty about not being able to find these polishes. I work right across from Urban Outfitters and they never had the Seagrass one I wanted so badly and I don't think they will have these either. It makes me sad.

I love Celestial, Magnetism, Fame and Sunset. Very pretty collection. I do all my buying online so I hope I can track them down.
