Dotticure

{Press Sample}{Affiliate Links}

Today’s mani starts with two coats of Lauren B Beauty LA Smog which was originally sent to me as a press sample. Then, I used dotting tools to dot the edges of my nails with a double row on on the tips.

There’s something pretty fun about this mani. It’s not something I would normally do (since obviously I stamp 99% of the time) so it’s nice to have a little variety.

Chevron Nail Art

{Press Sample}

Lauren B Beauty sent me two of their polishes to play with! I swatched them for you earlier, but I wanted to play around with a little chevron nail art. The colors went so well together that I wanted them both show equally. :)

I’m having trouble finding nail vinyls that are sticky enough to stick to my very curved nails. The edges always come up before I’m ready!! If you have any recommendations for *super* sticky vinyls, please let me know!! I’ve also noticed that they need to be made from pretty thin material to follow the shape of my c-curve.

Lauren B Beauty Swatches

{Press Sample}

Lauren B Beauty sent me two of their polishes to show you! These colors are inspired by the city of Los Angeles. All of the formulas are eco-and vegan-friendly, contain no harsh chemicals, and are made in the U.S.

First up, we have Lauren B Beauty Sunset Blvd which is a coral-red. I did need two coats for full coverage. Some of their advertising says their formula is a one-coater, but I’m more comfortable with two coats. The formula is quite smooth and I was pretty impressed with the ease of application.

Next, I have Lauren B Beauty LA Smog which is a classic gray creme. Again, I did two coats of this one and I’m very pleased with the formula.

Both formulas are quite glossy and you can almost see the reflection of my camera in my nails! Especially in Sunset Blvd! Lauren B Beauty has a lot more to offer including more colors, top coats, and cuticle oil! After my lovely experience swatching these two, I’ll be on the quest to add more Lauren B Beauty to my collection.

This was the first I’d heard of this brand. Have you heard of it before? What do you think?
