LAKA Sin City Sparkle Review: The New Manicure Collection Exclusively for Las Vegas
What Happens in Vegas. Glitter Gulch. All In. Red Rock. No, those aren’t just taglines and places to visit here in Las Vegas, they are also the names of the new nail lacquers from the Sin City Sparkle collection created by LAKA Manicure Express. With three locations here in Southern Nevada, LAKA Manicure Express endeavors to stay on trend and look to local fashion and style for their latest collections. Las Vegas was their latest inspiration since we’ve become a new mecca for fashion and innovation:
“The latest styles are always an inspiration when we create new lacquers, and these glittery hues are right on trend with the fashion in Las Vegas.” – Zohar Liran, CEO of LAKA USA, LLC.
LAKA provided Recess with the Sin City Sparkle collection. These pretty polishes, which includes all four shades plus an additional polish, retail for $35. The trio package includes three Sin City Sparkle colors of your choice at the cost of $25 or purchase individually for $9 a bottle.
Produced in France, LAKA claims that all you need is one layer of polish as their lacquers are of the “highest quality in sealed colors”. So with samples in hand, Recess beauty maven Mira put these sparkly nail polishes to the test.
I have to say that I was a tad surprised how light the colors were when they were applied to the nail. I was expecting the colors to be a bit more vibrant, especially since Las Vegas is ….well, vibrant. However, the quality of the polish was outstanding. I’ve often experienced “clumping” with polish, especially when it’s glittery and LAKA’s lacquer passed the test. The polish went on smoothly and dried very quickly. Had I wanted to keep the color light, I would have only needed one layer but I like my polish a tad darker so I used two coats. So other than the unexpected lightness of the shades, I have to say I really like LAKA’s Sin City Sparkle.
