LVX Avireo

I cannot believe I haven't been actively blogging in almost 2 months now.  Being sick really takes it out of you!  My desk is overflowing with pretties, so it's time to get back into it!  With Daylight Savings Time ending this weekend, it's going to be hard to get any swatches done during the week but I'll make it work.  :]

Now, LVX has just announced their fall/winter line but I still have half the collection to show you!  I really think I may have left the best 3 for last because these colors really rocked my world.  First up is Avireo, an avocado green creme.  Now, you may notice that my bottle appears to have "streaks" in it.  Avireo was actually pulled off production to see what the deal was, and here's what the creator had to say.

"Our lab chemists came to the conclusion that this particular color was really heavily pigmented and the ball bearings have a tendency to make marks within the color. However, it in no way does it effect the color or how it performs. If it is mixed or shaken a few extra times, these flaws seen within the bottle disappear.


We had the option to reproduce it with less pigment, however it would most certainly not be the same color. We devoted hours and hours of research of hard work to develop our Summer collection colors and we do not wish to change this hue--doing so would go against our philosophy of only releasing thee top colors of each season.
  
With this being said, you can freely use Avireo, again, the streaks from the heavy pigments in no way shape or form affect the performance or application of the gorgeous green!"

I can attest that it didn't harm application to have some streaks in the bottle.  I used a base coat of Poshe, 2 coats of polish and topped it with Cult Nails Wicked Fast.  The polish was very smooth to apply but I did have a tiny bit of brush strokes in the finish, which you can see in my pictures.

I had just chopped my nails when I took these pictures after ripping my pinkie nail off (ow), so I apologize for the messy hands.  I was in need of a manicure!  However, in the sun you can see how well this applied and how pretty it is.  I know this is a "summer" color for LVX but I think it's wildly appropriate for fall.

Pretty much the same story in the shade.  I absolutely love how glossy the polish looks when paired with Cult Nails Wicked Fast top coat - it's quickly one of my favorite top coats on the market.

Finally I took a picture inside with the flash.  Now, with the flash this polish has much more of a yellow undertone which I don't care for, but thankfully that's just the photography - not the actual polish.  I can't think of another color right off that is like this that I own, so I'm very happy with it!
