Also for those of us who hate the harsh chemical scent that some nail polishes give off, awesome news!!!! LVX nail lacquers don’t have that smell!
I have been following LVX on IG since I opened an account back in June. They have come out with some pretty serious collections and today I have the Winter Resort Collection of 2013 to show you!
“Creamfields” is the simplest polish out of the collection. If you need a break from glitters, shimmers and holographic polishes, than Creamfields would be a good palette cleanser. This shade is a very light white toned peachy/pink cream polish. Out of all of the polishes in this collection, the formula of Creamfields was the hardest to work with in terms of leveling out perfectly, but with jelly-ish creams that is to always be expected. That is why I had to use four thin coats because if I would have used thicker coats I would have had the polish flooding my cuticles and clean up would have been a real mess. Other than that I have no problems with Creamfields, it was super shiny and classy looking without the use of a top coat.
“Tribute” is my favorite polish out of the collection! I wish the sun had been out, so I could have taken a better picture in all of its beautiful shimmering glory. Tribute is a metallic blue cream-jelly that is so deep and rich hints with blue shimmer when the light touches it. I have no words to describe this shade, other than everyone needs it in their personal collections. Be very careful when applying Tribute since it is a deep and rich blue, if you get any polish on your skin you may need to go over the stain a couple of times with remover before it will come out. Also just like every time you paint your nails use a base coat first 🙂
“Luxe” is a one coat-er silver metallic polish, how fantastic is that?! Clean-up on my cuticles was a little rough because the formula is so rich and pigmented, but once I washed my hands, the little bit of shimmer on the skin washed away. But hey!! Don’t they sell lotion with shimmer and glitter?? Kinda the same thing.. your gorgeous fingers will be sparkling!! This shade is so in-your-face bright, I took these pictures in the shade… I wonder in full sun if they would have blinded me. I am actually wearing Luxe on my toes right now and I didn’t think I would like silver polish, but it turns out that I do.
“Aubergine” is a dusty more on the side of jelly constancy than cream purple polish. I can’t wait to do a jelly sandwich with Aubergine and some holographic glitters. With this shade you can build it to get they right color for you. The formula was awesome, it levels out with no problems and clean up was a piece of cake.
“Dark Matter” is a lovely dark gray cream polish. Guess what? This shade is also a one coat-er! oh my, that’s unheard of with the gray polishes that I have worked with. I was crazy surprised when I was painting my nails, that I only needed one coat. The formula is fantastic, levels out beautifully and I had no need for a top coat.. You see the reflection in the polish? that is all Dark Matter… I was blown away but it.
“Alchemy” is a one coat-er gold metallic polish, fraternal twin to Luxe. Just as with Luxe, with Alchemy clean-up on my cuticles was a little rough because the formula is so rich and pigmented, but once I washed my hands, the little bit of shimmer on the skin washed away. Alchemy is also a in-your-face bright polish. Formula is fantastic, levels out beautifully with no brush marks, just like the other polishes (except Creamfields).
