Lauren B. Beauty Espresso on 3rd Review & Photos

Lauren B. Beauty Espresso on 3rd

Lauren B. Beauty Espresso on 3rd and My Private Cabana were two shades sent to me. The Lauren B. Beauty Espresso on 3rd is such an amazing shade of polish. The deep chocolate shade has beautiful, sparkling caramel flecks. Yes, I’m a very pale gal, but I believe that it will look great with all skin tones.

I’ve shot the photos of the Lauren B. Beauty Espresso on 3rd during the beautiful New England fall weather. I have two coats of Lauren B. Beauty Espresso on 3rd, and although My Private Cabana is not specifically a stamping polish, it worked well used on my ring finger. I added a top coat so I could wear the polish as many days as possible.

I hope you’ve read my other posts about Lauren B. Beauty, a cruelty free, vegan company. If not, here’s what you need to know. The owner is Lauren B., who has always loved nail polish. When she was little, she would frequently set up her own nail salon in the garage and paint her grandmother’s (and other family members’) nails. By the age of fifteen, she was obsessing over the newest nail trends so much that she would put nail polish shades in color groups and, during the hot summers, seek out Cape Cod Massachusetts convenience stores while everyone else was at the beautiful beaches!

Eventually, Lauren B. started her own brand of nail polish without the horrible chemicals of formaldehyde, DBP, and toluene, formaldehyde resin and camphor. Hence, Lauren B. Beauty is a five-free nail polish. In addition, Lauren B. Beauty polish is non-toxic, eco-friendly, and made in the USA.

I love the brushes that Lauren B. Beauty uses; they contain twice the amount of bristles that are common on typical polishes, and each of the bristles are pre-lacquered. All of the bottles have a special over-cap, which means you can use either a square handle, or a cylindrical one for more control. The Lauren B. Beauty Espresso on 3rd glided on incredibly smoothly.

As a busy mom, wife, and being owned by two big dogs I’m thankful that the Lauren B. Espresso on 3rd is very glossy, before adding a top coat. My nails dried very quickly, and due to the formula, I had over 4 days without anything more than very minor chips.

I highly recommend the Lauren B. Beauty Espresso on 3rd and My Private Cabana shades!

Lauren B. Beauty Beverly Hills Blush Nail Polish

Lauren B. Beauty Beverly Hills Blush

Today’s manicure is Lauren B. Beauty Beverly Hills Blush, a cruelty free and vegan nail polish. It’s a very pretty soft, pale pink, and it has a bit of cool silver shimmer in it. I have applied two coats of polish on all my nails, and a top coat to all, except my ring finger. I applied holographic glitter to that one.

All of the photos in the post were taken outside, at various times during the day.

I have written several previous reviews, but here is a quick summary about Lauren B. Beauty, a cruelty free, and vegan company. The owner is Lauren B., who has always loved nail polish. When she was little, she would frequently set up her own nail salon in the garage and paint her grandmother’s (and other family members’) nails. By the age of fifteen, she was obsessing over the newest nail trends so much that she would put nail polish shades in color groups and, during the hot summers, stalk out Cape Cod Massachusetts convenience stores while everyone else was at the beautiful beaches!

Some “well meaning” adults advised her to go into a career (other than the nail industry), and she graduated college and started her medical career journey. However, like most people that don’t pursue things that excite them, she found that “something was missing.” Fortunately, the hair care guru Philip B. is her uncle, and they worked together. Eventually, Lauren B. started her own brand of nail polish that was  just the right combination to produce a line of cruelty free, vegan nail polishes, without the horrible chemicals of formaldehyde, DBP, and toluene, formaldehyde resin and camphor. Hence, Lauren B. Beauty is a five-free nail polish. In addition, Lauren B. Beauty polish is non-toxic, eco-friendly, and made in the USA.

The nail polish brush contains twice the amount of bristles that are common on typical polishes. The Lauren B. Beauty Beverly Hill Blush glided on smoothly, and because each of the bristles are pre-lacquered, the brush is just the right width to easily paint my fingernails.  I also like the fact that the .50 fl oz/ 14.8 ml glass bottle has a special over-cap, which means I was able to use either a square handle or a cylindrical handle, for more control.

 

Lauren B. Beauty Beverly Hills Blush

Here’s what I found, as a busy mom, wife, and being being owned by two big dogs. The Lauren B. Beauty Beverly Hills Blush looked so pretty, even before I applied a top coat. My nails dried very quickly, after one and two coats of polish. I really don’t pamper my nails at all, although I always wear gloves when I garden, and when I do dishes. So, when I write that I have been wearing the polish for almost 6 days, and  my nails still look great, it’s pretty impressive. Between the amazing quality, and the soft pink shade, it has really held up well!

Lauren B. Beauty Beverly Hills Blush

Lauren B. Beauty Beverly Hills Blush is a cruelty free and vegan nail polish hue that will work well with every outfit, and in every setting, including the workplace.

Lauren B. Beauty Clueless in 90210 Review

Lauren B. Beauty Clueless in 90210

Lauren B. Beauty Clueless in 90210 is a beautiful pink shade that I received and is described as being, “As bright and playful as the Corvette parked outside Barbie’s Malibu Dream House,” on the Lauren B. Beauty website. I was thinking of doing nail art with a Barbie theme, but I didn’t want to downplay just how lovely this hue, which has flattering blue undertones, really is. All ages will love Lauren B. Beauty Clueless in 90210. Lauren B. Beauty polish is not only cruelty free it’s also vegan!

Lauren B. Beauty polish is also five-free. That means that it does not have the horrible chemicals of formaldehyde, DBP, and toluene, formaldehyde resin and camphor. In addition, it’s non-toxic, eco-friendly, and made in the USA.

With the exception of one of my fingers, I applied two coats of Lauren B. Beauty Clueless in 90210. Can you even tell which finger has only one coat of polish? I used the Lauren B. Beauty Gel Like Top Coat on all my fingers. That, of course, also applies like a charm, and dries quickly.

With Lauren B. Beauty Clueless in 90210, I thought the shade looked glamorous no matter if I applied one or two coats. The polish applies so smoothly that you do not have add a second coat. There is no streaking.

The photo below of Lauren B. Beauty Clueless in 90210 was taken at noon, on a beautiful, sunny day. I think that this is the only photo, that you can actually see that it’s my middle finger that has only one coat of polish. See how glorious the Lauren B. Beauty Clueless in 90210 is?! All of the Lauren B. Beauty polishes that I have received have that same amazing formulation that makes it easy for anyone, even if you’re not a nail blogger, to paint your nails and have them look beautiful. No tricks, no special lighting, no extra effort required.

On my ring finger I applied the Lauren B. Beauty shade Greystone grey, and I placed a pink rhinestone above the pink lips. I actually had to look up the name for it; it’s called a “medusa piercing.” You may not know it, but my children are proud their ‘ole Mom is so hip!

I can confidently write that I cannot imagine what you would not love about Lauren B. Beauty 90210. You don’t like that hue, then check out the Lauren B. Beauty website and choose a different shade!

Lauren B. Beauty Greystone Grey Review & Photos

Lauren B. Beauty Greystone Grey

Lauren B. Beauty Greystone Grey Nail Polish was sent to me, and I have some photos of this silver shade to share with you. Lauren B. is the owner who has always loved nail polish, and she started her own brand of nail polish with the right combination to produce a line of cruelty free, vegan nail polishes. Lauren B. is five-free, meaning that it does not have the horrible chemicals of formaldehyde, DBP, and toluene, formaldehyde resin and camphor. Lauren B. Beauty polish is non-toxic, eco-friendly, and made in the USA.

 

This silver slate shade is a very pretty, wearable neutral.  The photos show two coats of Lauren B. Beauty Greystone Grey on all my nails. I also added the Lauren B. Beauty Gel Like Top Coat on all my nails.  On my ring finger is a rose design using the Lauren B. Beauty shade Clueless in 90210.

The glass bottle holds 0.50 fl.oz./14.8 ml. You will love the brush, as it contains twice the amount of bristles that are common on typical polishes. In addition, the bristles are pre-lacquered, so the polish glides on incredibly smoothly.

It’s very smart that all the Lauren B. Beauty bottles have a special over-cap, so you can use either a square handle or a cylindrical handle, for more control.

 

The Lauren B. Beauty Greystone shade looks great in the direct sunlight, on a cloudy day, or inside, in the evening, while I’m hunched over my computer.

The Greystone Grey shade is described as being “muted but with a wild side…while staying unexpectedly moody.” I think that’s a perfect way to describe it. I have to admit that I only wore this shade for three full days, because I loved the previous shade of House of Blues so much! That’s not to take anything away from this hue, it’s just an honest explanation of why I only tested it on my nails for a shorter amount of time than I usually do. My nails dried very quickly, after one and two coats of polish. No streaking at all. In addition, as a busy mom, wife, and being being owned by two big dogs, and actually use my nails–I have had no chips at all. None.

There is nothing that I can think of to even be picky about. If you don’t happen to like the shade, there are so many more to choose from. on the Lauren B. Beauty website. Once again, Lauren B. has formulated a fantastic cruelty free and vegan nail polish! Highly recommend.

Lauren B. Beauty House of Blues Review

Lauren B. Beauty House of Blues

This week’s Manicure Monday is the Lauren B. Beauty House of Blues, a shade that was sent to me. I previously reviewed another of Lauren B.’s shade My Private Cabana  Just a reminder that Lauren B. Beauty is a cruelty free, vegan company. The owner is Lauren B., who has always loved nail polish.  Lauren B. started her own brand of nail polish, Lauren B. Beauty, that does not have the chemicals included in a lot of polishes: formaldehyde, DBP, and toluene, formaldehyde resin and camphor. Hence, Lauren B. Beauty is a five-free nail polish. In addition, Lauren B. Beauty polish is non-toxic, eco-friendly, and made in the USA.

Lauren B. Beauty House of Blues

The Lauren B. Beauty House of Blues is an iridescent midnight navy blue shade that looks fabulous no matter the lighting conditions!

The photo below still shows the awesome shine, despite there being no sun out on that day. In fact, it was one of the few days I was able to be outside without getting deluged with rain.

 Lauren B. Beauty House of Blues

 

All the photos show two coats of Lauren B. Beauty House of Blues, but no top coat, except on my ring finger. I did that due to the nail art, where I used My Private Cabana (last week’s shade), and then the Lauren B. Beauty Gel Like Top Coat.

Lauren B. Beauty House of Blues

I love the brush; it contains twice the amount of bristles that are common on typical polishes, and each of the bristles are pre-lacquered.  The Lauren B. Beauty House of Blues glided on incredibly smoothly. I think it’s great that the bottle has a special over-cap, so I could use either a square handle or a cylindrical handle, for more control.

I did not need two coats of polish. In fact, when I asked my family if they could tell which one finger I had just one coat of polish on, they could not tell the difference!  So, after the photos, I added a second coat, and a top coat to all the nails, to check out the wear, and test how long I could go before I noticed any chipping.

Here is my assessment of the the Lauren B. Beauty House of Blues polish. I’m a busy mom, wife, and I’m owned by two big dogs. The Lauren B. Beauty House of Blues is very glossy, even without a top coat. My nails dried very quickly, and if you are rushed, this shade does not need a second coat of polish.  I have had only two minor chips, and I think that’s because I’m at my computer typing away a lot of the day–never mind all the dishes, etc. that I do. I am planning on asking if Lauren B. herself can tell us about the formula of her polish. There is something very different (special) about the thickness, and the durability of it. I’ll get back to you when I have a response.

The Lauren B. Beauty looks great in the direct sunlight, and as in the photo below, in my house, working on this post late at night! Without any hesitation, I highly recommend the Lauren B. Beauty House of Blues shade!
