I was contacted recently and asked whether I'd like to try some Laqa & Co. products. I'd seen them online on other blogs and they looked so pretty, so I jumped at the chance! Here is the first of them, Bobby Dazzler.
Laqa & Co. is a New York based company which makes polishes that are 3-free, and come in beautifully decorated boxes, designed by up-and-coming artists. A nice twist with Laqa & Co. is that they give a percentage of the income from the products to the artists. They also feature these artists on their website, with a new one featured every month.

As you can see, Bobby Dazzler is a bright orange, almost neon bright polish, which is right up my street! This is two coats. It applies really nicely, and dries well to a satin finish. The brush is really good, and the polish is smooth and even. I'm not a huge fan of the slender bottle though, as it's so easily knocked over! It is really pretty, but it's not the most practical, especially as I'm pretty clumsy!
It's a really good colour!
The artwork on the box for Bobby Dazzler was designed by Georgiana Paraschiv. I wish this information was on the box though - I think if you're going to feature artists and have their artwork on the box, it would be nice to put some details either on the box or inside, because I think people would be interested. You can see more of her work here. I was inspired by the pretty, abstract, blotchy pattern to do nails to match the box!
I did this by sponging colours over the base of Bobby Dazzler. I used Models Own Bubblegum, China Glaze Pink-ie Promise, and OPI Tickle My France-y, and a small makeup sponge.
I then added a matte topcoat (Rimmel Pro) to match the box.
I'm really pleased with how these came out! What do you think?
You can buy Laqa & Co. polishes in the UK from My Retail Beauty, where they cost £8.95 for these bottles (9ml). There are loads of colours to choose from! They also sell the famous Laqa & Co. nail polish PENS - I have one of those to try too, so look out for that post coming very soon! I'm excited to try that.
