LOV Cosmetics recently came onto the makeup scene in South Africa as an affordable brand available at Dischem. I was recently sent this vibrant red nail lacquer and it very quickly became a festive favourite. The colour is very opaque, giving a solid enough colour with just one layer. The formula also lasted a decent amount of time (3 days with no top or base coat) on my nails without chipping. Retail price R115, in the shade Scarlet Sunset.
The other nail lacquer that has fallen (joyfully) into my festive favourites, is Wet n Wild’s Ready To Propose. This is a gold shade that makes me feel oh-so merry. Unlike the LOV Cosmetics’ red shade, I would not wear this all year ’round. I do however, think it is perfect for the Advent season and potentially Summer. Retail price: R27,95.
Both very affordable and very good quality nail lacquers. Give these a try if you fancy 🙂
