LVX Cliquot

Press Sample

The Winter/Resort 2014 LVX collection arrived the other day, so I'm trying to power through the Fall 2013 collection for you. Especially if you want to grab some after the holidays when you probably have a gift card or two to use. This is Cliquot, a pretty pink creme that is a pretty flattering nude with the right skin tone. I used a base of Cult Nails Get It On, two coats of polish and a top of Cult Nails Wicked Fast. No problems here with formula, pigmentation or pooling - yay!

I'm actually a big fan of this color. It's a great office nude, perfect for a glitter undie and I really think it would sparkle at a Christmas party with the right rainbow reflective small glitter. I've been thinking about my Christmas nails a lot since I have my work party on Wednesday but with my birthday on Thursday, I just don't know if I want to redo my nails for each day or what. I'll figure it out.

Back to the polish - great color staple to have. I'd buy it again without question.

LVX [Website | Facebook | Twitter | YouTube | Instagram] is available on their website for $16 a 15 ml/0.5 oz bottle.  It is big 5 free to include Toluene and Camphor, vegan and cruelty free.

LVX Azzurrum


Here's another fall 2013 LVX polish for you - Azzurum, a pretty navy blue that doesn't go black. I'm not a fan of navy blue blacks because I just don't think they look as good on my skin. I used a base coat of Cult Nails Get It On, 2 coats of polish and a top of Cult Nails Wicked Fast. Once again, the formula and pigmentation were spot on and the best news ever - no staining afterwards.

See? Happy times. I did have a bit of a problem with my cuticles on my middle finger but that's because my cuticles were in terrible shape. Cold weather sucks sometimes. Otherwise, this was a great wintery polish - perfect for a holiday party and really compliments everything.

LVX Viridis

Press Sample

Today I have another LVX polish - Viridis from the Fall 2013 collection. LVX has done a great job at being on point with fashion and this emerald green is right on point. It was Color of the Year by Pantone after all.  I used a base of Cult Nails Get It On, 2 coats of polish and a top of Cult Nails Wicked Fast. Formula was smooth and consistent and no staining afterwards.

Tada! I found it to be more blue toned in real life - still emerald but not as dark as their website looked. I was just really glad that it didn't stain... Greens give me the worries.

LVX [Website | Facebook | Twitter | YouTube | Instagram] is available on their website for $16 a 15 ml/0.5 oz bottle.  It is big 5 free to include Toluene and Camphor, vegan and cruelty free.

LVX Cashmere

Press Sample

LVX Cashmere is a light grey creme from the Fall 2013 collection. I am still looking for my perfect grey but none seem to really hit the spot. For this manicure, I used a base coat of Cult Nails Get It On, 2 coats of polish and a top of Cult Nails Wicked Fast.


So this comes super close to being my happy grey that I want to wear all the time. I think it needs a tiny more grey in it for me but it's a great palette cleanser or office appropriate shade.
