LVX Fall 2014 Collection Swatches and Review

This week I’ve been working with some beautiful LVX colors from their Fall 2014 collection. Every time I use lacquers from this brand I have a great experience. They produce gorgeous colors with equally amazing 5-free vegan formulas. Gaining inspiration from the seasons fashion trends, this sister brother duo have mastered pairing polish to the finest garments.
Peony is a lovely light bubblegum pink cream that showed opacity in two smooth coats. Paying homage to Lolli, one of LVX’s top sellers during the summer, Peony steps up the brightness just a touch.
Macaroon is a sheer peachy nude that showed full opacity in four thin coats. Most nudes require 3-4 coats to as they can be quite thin similar to yellows. Not a problem at all during application as each coat dried nice and fast.
Cerise is cherry red cream with hints of fuchsia to it. Impeccable application and coverage in two coats this was my top color from the collection. So striking and incredibly bold like a red shade should be.
Anthracite is a dark charcoal gray that had a sort of crelly finish to it. Three coats was needed for full opacity but my photos are without topcoat so you can see how smooth it applies.
Oyster is a blue gray cream that only required one coat for full opacity. Whenever I find a shade with a formula such as this one my jaw instantly drops. I didn’t apply topcoat for this swatch either so thats why you can see my ridges a bit, but seriously could this be anymore like butter?!
Espresso is chocolatey coffee like brown cream that showed full opacity in two smooth coats. It’s dark tone would make it a great alternative for black, which is major staple for any art.
I did some stamping overtop of Peony with Espresso and Moyou London Sailor Plate 06 which paired great together.
I also did a little something with Anthracite using these neat neon diamond stickers from She Sells Seashells. I kinda love the pop of color over this dark crelly.
I love the names these colors have, so appropriate for each, but still quite unique. If I had to use three words to describe LVX it would be smooth, flawless and stunning!
