This is the last one I promise 😉
I can’t go to Dischem without checking in with my beloved L.A Girl display. There are a few collections – and more specifically colours – that I am dying to get here. I really hope they pop up soon. I was lucky that one of those have popped up here. The Color Pop collection is pretty stunning but one of them in particular has been on my lust list since I first saw it on the www. Let me show you,
L.A Girl – Birthday Cake
Isn’t that just delicious? This is 2 coats with no topcoat. It is a light pink base filled with glitter. Large yellow, green and purple hexes, smaller blue, white and red. The formula was really great and I had no balding or streakiness. 2 very easy coats. I don’t think it needs more but it is also not very thick so a third coat wouldn’t be a problem either. It also dried pretty fast. I am a little obsessed with this to be honest. I would love to own some of the indies that are available to international folks and this might the closest I can get to something that looks like an indie. 😉 (I know there are places to buy it but shipping is quite a bit and with the exchange rate :/)
Unfotuantely, this is the only one of the collection that is a coloured base with coloured glitter. All the others are glitters in either clear base or tinted base. They seem to be dense enough to wear on their own though. So don’t expect to find any more like birthday cake (this time) but there are still some really gorgeous glitters (and a few colours, I know there is a silver). I did pick one up.
L.A Girl – Frisky
This is 3 coats with no topcoat and no undies. Blue, purple and some pink glitter in a clear base. The glitter is quite dense though and they are a nice size. (If you have Sinful Colors – Frenzy, this is the same colours but not the same glitter, Frenzy is smaller glitter, not as dense and a hint of silver) I really like this but I might be inclined to wear some undies with it. Even though in real life it looked great with no gaps, I can on the photo see some nail. Still super gorgeous though right?
Have you seen these yet? Scooped it up? What do you think? Are you as obsessed with Birthday cake as I am?
Ok that is really it for the day. Have a stunning weekend folks and I will see you all on Monday again.
Thanks for reading,
I love the birthday cake polish, it’s beautiful. I wonder if I should visit Dischem this weekend…
Thanks Nicola, I sure hope you visited Dischem. There are so many beautiful things out. I should just buy a Dischem so I can play with everything 😛
Wow, this is awesome! I didn’t see this in my Dischem… I’ll have to keep my eyes open and it had better appear 🙂 heehee…

LOL Glad you got it!
Omg I need me some birthday cake!
You do!! isn’t it gorgeous. I found it at Westwood and only because I am so tall. It was a tucked behind the other colours in the top display. Luckily I knew it was in that collection so was specifically looking for it too. Sneaky Dischem 😛
OMG…you found this polish because of a height advantage?!?! So jealous…I’d be screwed, lol.
I always see this one in the store and I think it looks great, but I have a Deborah Lippmann from a set that is similar. There is one glitter from this brand I’ve had my eye on forever, though…I need to just get it!
Hahahaha don’t be fooled. Being tall has many more disadvantages than advantages 😛 Even though this was a nice one.
I love it because it looks ‘indie-ish’ and we don’t have (easy) access to them here. I would sell half my height for real proper indies 😛

[…] I love it, I actually hunted this nail polish down after seeing it on Ordinary Misfit (her post here) and Michelle even offered to keep an eye out in Dischem for me until I got it. What do you think […]
