Review: Lauren B. Beauty – Santa Barbara Surf

I just realized it’s been the better part of a month since my last blog entry! It doesn’t feel that long – probably because I have had so much going on this month. It’s definitely time for a breather, so here we are! The polish I am reviewing today was a happy surprise from my Allure Beauty Box this month – I canceled my box subscription, so this was the last one I will get. It’s from a new-to-me brand and I am in love!

The color I received in my box this month was Santa Barbara Surf,  an absolutely gorgeous, sea foam green. While not neon, this color is very bright and absolutely perfect for Spring and Summer.

I really like the formula on this one, but it does dry quickly, so you need to be pretty precise in your application. If you go over it too much, you’ll start to have streaks. This took two coats for full coverage, but if you have nail ridges it will take three if you don’t use a ridge-filling base coat. This is one of my new all-time favorite creme polishes. The color payoff is outstanding and this is my favorite kind of color.

I really love this as a toe color as well! I’ve been wearing it on my toes for about two weeks now. So far, it has lasted really well! Here is a bit of simple dotticure nail art I did – I couldn’t stand to cover up the color so I dotted with OPI – Love.Angel.Music.Baby:

Lauren B Beauty nail polishes are 5-free, cruelty free and vegan. The bottles are generous, 14.8 mL, and retail for $18.00. Overall, I am a huge fan of this polish and plan to add more of their polish to my wish list!
