LAQA & CO Gryffandor, Gold Fleck and Green Swatch and Review

Press sample
Another post today that got completed during the Summer and then lost in the shuffle of moving. I was super excited to get these tried out too because my first experience with this brand LAQA & CO was outstanding. You can see that post here. Love that this company covers their packaging in unique artwork by young artists looking to get their
work seen by lots and lots of people. Their Artists get a cut of the profit from
every product purchased. Such a lovely deal, the boxes I have received are all wonderful, and I do save the box!

 I had no issues with the pink or green, both applied easily, 2 cts, great formula. The gold fleck looks amazing, but personally it's not my thing. There are many shards of the gold flakes that don't want to play nice and lay flat, I actually removed a few with a tweezer before it set and dried. If you recognize that that may occur and you love the look then this is a great gold fleck with big gold flakes and varying sizes. Big payoff!

Are you a fan of the gold fleck look?

These LAQA & Co. are available for $13 and $17 on their website.

All the best,

  1. Beautiful! The polishes are gorgeous together and the gold glitter is the perfect touch!

  2. What a great packaging concept! Your finished manicure really is gorgeous but mylar flakes drive me seriously batty. That pink by itself looks divine.

  3. I love the way you painted your nails for this. The colors not only go well together, but really complement your skintone. I do like the color combination with the gold very much, but I don't like that particular gold fleck polish. The shards are too big for my taste. Still, love the colors and may try to replicate this manicure with a gold stripe bisecting the nail instead of gold flecks and the negative space.

  5. I really like those colors and the gold looks like it would misbehave as you said. I only like a rough finish when it's all over not just in a couple spots. I would have ended up pulling them all off anyway. Very cute look, though!

  7. Love those colors, especially the mint, but I think my favorite part is the packaging. What a great way to be a memorable brand while helping other artists get their work seen all over.

  8. Hi Victoria, your nail art is crisp and clean, as always! What an inspiration. I particularly enjoy the mint green polish with your skin tone (greens can be difficult to wear!).

  9. I LOVE this mani. I have to admit I liked it better without the gold flakes but I love the color combination and your nail arts is one of the cleanest I have seen.
