L.A. COLORS Reckless

I love cheap thrills nail polish. One thing I've learned is that cheap nail polish doesn't mean it's cheap quality. In my experience using a great base coat and top coat that works for you can make a $1 polish or even a $18 polish wear the same. Now, formulation may not be as great, but wear time usually is the same for me.

The best places to find cheap thrill nail polishes? Dollar General, Dollar Tree, and Big Lots come to mind first. You can find good stuff there for $1-$2! I found this pretty L.A. COLORS at Dollar General.

Reckless is a saturated medium blurple creme.

Color: This is one of those colors that under some light looks purple, and others it looks blurple. Either way, it's beautiful rich color. I love the vibrancy of it.

Formula: This isn't a buttery perfectly smooth formula. It is a bit streaky, but I could even it out in 2 coats. I'd say this is an average formula.

Price: I found this for $1.50 at Dollar General.

Overall: Gorgeous bright blurple creme shade. I have few blurple colors in my stash, but this one stands out a little brighter/lighter than the others I own. This polish at $1.50 is hard to pass up too!

My Rating 4 out of 5 Paint Splatters
Happy Monday!


  1. What a pretty blurple color! Its very nice.

  2. This brand is 10for10 at Walmart right now! I love their neons! :)

  3. Awesome! Thanks for the info!

  4. Glad you like it!

  5. I have a lot of L.A. Colors. I've found them in multi pack sets at Ross. This is one beautiful polish. It reminds me of one I have by Fingerpaints called Grape Gumball.

  6. I love cheap nail polish too! Everything else tends to get measured by how many dollar polishes I could have instead of one more expensive polish and whether or not it's worth it. L.A. Colors makes some great polishes that deserve a lot more attention than they get. So happy to see you showing one off. :)
