Laura Paige Week - Day 1 - Grape Vine

This week I thought I'd do a series of posts about Laura Paige or LP as it says on the front of the bottle, a brand of nail polish that I've only seen in a local chemist in my home town. So I apologise if you fancy any of these as I don't know where else you can get them, but if there is any you fancy get in touch and I can see if they have any left.

The first polish I'm going to share with you is the first Laura Paige polish I owned, my lovely boyfriend spotted the display of cosmetics when he was at the chemists and he picked this one out for me as a treat.

Grape Vine is a lovely deep plum with a blue / purple shimmer, it looks really nice on the nail, and is brighter or darker depending on the light conditions. I think I used two coats for this photo, and looking at it I should've used three, I didn't notice the bald spots until I came to edit the photos so you could probably still get away with just two.

The formula is easy to work with, and the brush was a standard brush. I think considering this polish costs around £2 it's pretty good.

My boyfriend also got me a silver glitter polish by Laura Paige called Crystal Daze, it's a layering glitter, so I've popped one coat on top of each polish I've swatched to show you what it looks like, here it is over Grape Vine.

I really like Crystal daze, with one coat it's got just the right amount of glitter to show up on the nail but it still lets the colour underneath shine through. I really like this combination, I would never have thought of putting glitter over Grape Vine, so I'm glad I did for this series of swatches as it's inspired me to try layering other polishes that I wouldn't normally try.

What do you think of these Laura Paige polishes, and have you seen them for sale near you?

Cheerio for now,

Heather. :-)
