LVX Luxury Nail Lacquer - Spring/Summer Collection Review and Swatches
//product was provided to me for editorial consideration//
So... This is posting a little late and for that, I'm sorry. I've been having, how can I put this nicely? Nail issues and they have just come back round to minimal acceptable swatching condition and length.
LVX Luxury Nail Lacquer is a cruelty free, 7-Free formula nail polish that delivers rich, saturated colour, smooth application and (in my personal experience) good wear, even on natural nails. Today, I have the Spring/Summer 2017 Collection to share.
LVX (pronounced "luxe") is contained in chic, square bottles with a removable cap to make application easy and comfortable. The brush is flat, wide and well trimmed for precise application and control.
All six polishes were swatched over base coat and finished with a glossy top coat. Thanks to my stupid ridgy nails, I added a ridge filling base under some polishes to give a smoother, more opaque finish. My ring nail is an easy-peasy floral dotticure using all six polishes.
Ready to take a look?
Let's begin with Coquillage. This delicate, ultra soft pink creme was completely opaque in three coats on my ridgy nails. The formula is a dream, surprising for such a pale pastel.
Camilia is a bold, strawberry pink creme. Two coats renders perfection.
Schiaparelli is an intense raspberry pink creme that is perfect in two effortless coats.
Reine is the perfect name for this glowing royal purple. How did they get that luminous shift without adding shimmer? This swatch is two coats. Magnificent.
Argonne is a rich military green creme that is flawless in two smooth coats.
My personal favorite of this gorgeous collection is Seychelle. This glorious delicate turquoise creme evokes everything we love about summer in the islands. This smooth creme is impeccable in two coats.
All six lacquers have a silky formula that sits sweetly down where it is placed, whispers up the nail without dragging, pulling, running or flooding my cuticles. I did experience some bubbling on the first coat of the lightest shades but I don't think that the polish was to blame. I tend to apply thicker coats and on the day I swatched, I was running the air and a fan which can muck with application. Dry time, especially with a quick dry top coat is downright respectable and I get a solid three to four days of nearly chip free wear which is impressive for my polish shedding natural nails.
I am so impressed with my first experience with LVX Luxury Nail Lacquer. The bottles are good looking, I love the removable cap that allows for easy application and the smooth, impeccable formula and I can't wait to try more shades and finishes from this lovely brand.
