- PROVIDED FOR REVIEW -
The product I'm reviewing today is their Gold Fleck Manicure Duo, which contains two polishes - a turquoise creme, and a glitter shard top coat. (Fun fact: I actually thought this product was called "gold fleek" - still not 100% sure what "fleek" means but I keep seeing it everywhere! Haha!)
Here is the simple nail art look I created using the Gold Fleck Manicure Duo. I started off with two easy coats of Gremlin, the turquoise creme. The formula was nice and easy to use - the only thing that took some getting used to was the heaviness of the brush, since it also contained the other polish. Once that was dry, I sponged on Gold Fleck at the tips of my nails, and dabbed on some smaller pieces as I went up, to create a gradient look. I topped everything off with top coat.
I actually love how insanely simple and easy to do this nail art look was! Of course, you can paint on the Gold Fleck topper as a normal glitter top coat if you want, but I thought this was more exciting. I would definitely be interested in trying a mosaic look with this duo, by placing the gold shards on each nail.
I was curious to see how this manicure would look mattified:
And I was so not disappointed! The mattified glitters have a totally different look, and I love it as well. I did prefer the matte look in person better, but I think my photo of the glossy version looks nicer.
Overall, I think this is a nifty little duo and it's nice to create a nail art look using just one product. You can purchase this manicure duo here for $17 USD.
As I mentioned earlier, LAQA & Co. is known for on-the-go products - they actually have a nail polish pen, where you can actually paint your nails without having to open a polish bottle. It sounds super intriguing and I'm very curious to try it. Have any of you tried it before?!
