L.A. Girl DIY Nail Kit & Stamping.


After seeing swatches of this kit on Oh Three Oh Four blog, I had to have it. The colors are very me. And the price was right. You get four colors, a nail art brush and some chevron stickers for $3.99. There are actually 4 different kits, with different color combinations. You can find them online here at Cherry Culture, in stores at Rite Aid, or on eBay. I ordered mine from this seller.


 Nude, Brown, Gold Glitter & Aqua.


How Did They Apply?
  • Aqua was thicker but a bit streaky. I needed 3 coats. (It also stained my nails during removal.)
  • Brown was a bit runny, but I only needed 2 coats. 
  • The Gold Glitter is nice and thick, I only needed 2 coats. 
  • Nude was runny and took a bit longer to dry. I needed 3 coats. 

 These are my favorite colors out of the whole kit! The dark rich chocolate brown and the gorgeous gold glitter with holo sparkles in it. I love both of them! This was also my favorite design and one I've been wanting to do for awhile, I just never had the right colors. Winstonia Store stamping plate W113 & I used Maybelline Metallic's in Bold Gold to stamp with. Topcoat of Seche Vite.

The Aqua was hard to capture on camera, it's so bright in person. It was  overcast and rainy here today. I wish the stamping showed up a bit better, it's seashells from Winstonia Store stamping plate W108. I stamped with Maybelline Metallic's in Bold Gold. And a topcoat of Seche Vite.

I stamped with Winstonia Store stamping plate W108 and used Konad Special White Polish for the feathers. The nude is pretty, but I don't like it so much with the gold. The nude also takes the longest to dry, even with a topcoat of Seche Vite.

All in all, I really loved the colors in this DIY kit and price can't be beat. The quality of the polish is not bad either. I'm very happy with my purchase!
