City of Angels Nail Polish Review | Lauren B. Beauty

IMG_2695 IMG_2698

This pretty pink polish from Lauren B. Beauty showed up in a recent Glossybox of mine and I thought it’d be a nice color to wear this spring. The color is called City of Angels and is a bit more punchy in real life– the vibrance is somewhat dulled through the camera. I needed three coats to get the opaque look you see in these photos.

I’m a fan of 5 free polishes and Lauren B. Beauty happens to be vegan friendly as well. This polish chips easily, like many other 5 free polishes I use.  I observed noticeable wear by the end of day 2. I also found that it was difficult to remove from the skin around my nails. If you’re someone who likes to change your polish frequently and 5 free/cruelty free products are important to you, this would be a great product. I actually dislike painting my nails (though I do like the end result), so this isn’t the best polish for me. I love it when I can get ten days or more out of a manicure.

 Lauren B. Beauty polishes are called Nail Couture and retail for $18. You can find the City of Angels color here at laurenbbeauty.com

Dear Nnenna,

I’m glad it’s finally (sort of)  getting a little bit (okay not really) springy here in New York.

I’ve discovered that I definitely need to get some rain boots as waterproofing my usual boots isn’t cutting it anymore– they’re leaking around the seams and my toes are always wet. Of course, I also want to find semi-stylish ones, extra points if they can pass for regular streetwear. Let me know if you come across any?…
