Laqa & Co Nail Polish Pen

LAQA & and Co. is a New York based cosmetic brand.

What we like about the brand is that is uses new young upcoming artists to design the packaging.It enables their art work to be viewed by more people and they also get a cut of the profit from each product purchased.

They have products based around convenience and have three product types in their range. A fat lip pencil, nail polish and a nail polish pen.
We took a look at the nail polish pen as we are often on the go so being able to quickly do our nails or touch up chips easily is a god send.

We had two colours to test out...
BMX Bandit is a fresh cherry red. The packaging is a snow flake style design.
The first time you use this pen you will need to pump the end a couple of times to get it going. I found the first time I pumped it too much came out so I had to wipe the excess on a tissue. 

 The brush makes it really easy to apply the colour. My nail polish often looks un-even around the cuticle however the brush makes it really easy to get it right to the cuticle with control and precision.
 The brush holds a lot of product so I found I could get three finger nails covered without having to pump again.

After two coats the nails have an opaque covering with a vibrant gloss finish.
I also found this really quick drying.
Nail polish is a nice creamy texture so it doesn't go on patchy at all.

The second colour we had to try out was called Tiger Blood and is an apricot peach colour. The packaging says "Gosh you're pretty" as seen above.
 I pressed the pump end down once but unfortunately it didn't pop back up for me to pump again. 
My stuck nail pen!
I tried pushing tweezers, hair grips etc down the side of it to pop it back up again but it's well and truly jammed down. This is probably just a one off and fingers crossed yours won't do the same as this. Looks like it would be a lovely colour. 

There are tons of other colours available on their website each with unique packaging so check them out. Each are £10.20 and are available now form



  1. That looks so easy! I suck at nail polish and never wear it, but I want to try this!

  2. Ohhh these are cool! Looks a lot easier to use than normal nail varnish :) Xx

  4. These are really cool. I imagine your hand would be much steadier when applying with a pen application!

  5. I have one from America (I think it's a Sally Hanson one, but I can't remember!) and it's great! Shame one of yours got stuck but they are great if you're a bit on the messy side!

  6. Que formato tan original, aunque me pregunto si con el tiempo el pincel no se quedará duro...

  7. I LOVE the idea of using unknown artists. Being a performing artist myself I know how hard it is to get work out there, so this is a lovely idea. And the first time I've ever heard of a nail polish pen!? Great idea though. x

  8. these look interesting and like you can;t waste them either. but when the laqur dries wont the brush go stiff? what happens then?

  9. What a great idea!!! Why didn't anyone think of this before?
