Mani of the Day (MOTD)- Love and Beauty “Royal”

Leave a comment

Essentially, a mani of the day is an excuse for me to post pictures of my favorite polishes, new or old, hopefully for your enjoyment. If I don’t have new polishes to show you, I’ll probably post MOTD’s. Hopefully they will inspire you to try out some of my favorite colors! So let’s get on with today’s post.

Today I have for you a polish by Forever 21’s beauty brand, Love and Beauty. While the nail polish names are relatively uncreative, I’ve still gotten some great bargains from them. Most of them can be purchased for between $1-$3! They also have an incredible selection of colors. Today’s color, in the shade “Royal”, is specially selected for the impending birth of the Duchess of Cambridge’s royal baby. And what a perfect color for the event! “Royal” is a blurple, a beautiful combination of indigo and dark purple fine glitter in a dark blue base. It takes about 3 coats to be opaque, but it’s definitely worth it! The blue is more prominent in the sunlight while the purple sparkles brighter in the sun. Below are two pictures indoors, and two pictures in the sunlight. All are one coat of Sally Hansen Diamond Strength No-Chip Nail Color in “Flawless” as a base coat, and three coats of “Royal”, no top coat.









What do you think of this polish? Will you be wearing any themed colors for the arrival of the royal baby?
