LVX Summer 2013- Swatch + Review

-This collection was sent for review
Hey Everyone!!  I'm really excited about today's post!!  Every time LVX releases a new collection, I can't wait to see what gorgeous colors they'll come up with next!!  It's no secret, LVX is my new favorite luxury brand of polish and I'm very lucky to receive them for review!!  Today I have the new Summer 2013 Collection to share with you..


Rive is a beautiful soft tan creme.  This is a classic shade for any skintone and the formula is flawless.  Pictured above is two coats of Rive.


Celeste is a soft blue creme.  I like this one because it's not quite as light as many blues.. it's a bit more vibrant, yet still subtle.  I did have a bit of streaking with the first coat of Celeste, but after 3 coats, everything evened out and the finish is shiny and beautiful.


Although I really like Mynt in the bottle, this one gave me serious "lobster skin."  Most mint colored polishes go well with my skintone, but Mynt made my skin "glow." lol.  Although Mynt didn't mesh with my skin, it's still a gorgeous color with an awesome formula.  Pictured above is two coats.


Deco is a peachy-coral creme that's soooo stunningly beautiful!!  "Orange is the new black" for me this summer and Deco will be worn often!!  Deco will be perfect for my next pedicure!! I love it!  Pictured above is two coats!


Oooooh, Chambord is sooo pretty!!  It reminds me of beets.. you know, the vegetable?? lol  Chambord's formula practically applied itself.  It's a creme with a formula that's a bit thin.  Still, I only used two coats for full opacity.


Gah, I'll always be a sucker for a gorgeous red!!  Modena is amazing!  The formula is almost a "jelly".  I used two coats and you can still faintly see some nail line, but that's fine with me because I love finishes like Modena!!  A girl (or guy) can never have too many red polishes!! ;)  Modena is classic and chic!

**There you have another gorgeous collection from LVX!!  I know I sound like a broken record, but if you haven't tried any polishes from LVX, I highly suggest you do so NOW!!  They're worth the price!!  My faves from this collection are Deco and Modena**

The long lasting, chip resistant and non-streak formula is free of harsh and toxic chemicals. LVX products are VEGAN and formulated without the use of Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, DBP, Toluene, and Camphor. LVX is a no compromise nail lacquer that has superior formulation, is socially responsible and eco friendly. LVX nail lacquer is cruelty free.

Pipe Dream Polish

--These polishes were sent for review
Happy Memorial Day to all my US Subscribers!!  Take time to thank a Military Person today!!

  I have another new-to-me indie brand to show you today--  Pipe Dream Polish!!  There are a zillion indie makers out there now, but Pipe Dream Polishes really caught my eye as something "different and unique," so I was excited to receive these two for review..

Pink Elephants and Lemonade:

Pink Elephants and Lemonade has such a pretty and unique dusty blue base.  It's a crelly containing bright pink and yellow hex glitters.  I used two coats followed by top coat in the above picks.  I really like this one!!

Life Divine:

Life Divine is also a crelly.  It has a gorgeous lilac base with all hex glitters in white, royal blue, and green.  I'm in love with this color combo!  I especially love how the royal blue glitters really pop through the lilac base.. it has such depth!  The formula with Life Divine is amazing.. I used two generous coats followed by top coat. (Always make sure to allow each coat to dry completely before applying the next-- especially with a "crelly.")

**I'm really looking forward to trying more polishes from Pipe Dream Polish!  Both of these were "a dream" to work with. lol.  If you're looking for something a bit different when it comes to indies, give this brand a try!**

KBShimmer Press Release--9 New Polishes for Summer

KBShimmer Summer Polish Line Set For Release June 1st, 2013

KBShimmer is excited to announce the addition of 9 new colors to their 3-Free glitter polish line and an expansion to their nail prep line.  Owner Christy Rose says “With warm weather and sandals popping up, June is the perfect time for bright, bold colors and patriotic themes to celebrate a fun and exciting summer.”

The summer lineup includes one glitter top coat, two glitter crellys in a white base and six bright, bold polishes, two in a matte finish.  KBShimmer will also be expanding their nail care line to include two scented cuticle oils and liquid nail prep. “Our new line was created to play off the bolder palette of summer, some inspired by the 80’s and 90s, but also to celebrate the patriotic season. One of our polishes plays off the color of the year, Emerald Green, and will ease people into the summer while two others were inspired by the fall 2013 Pantone colors Koi and Vivacious. Both will make for an easy transition through the summer and into the fall.  We are also excited to unveil two scented cuticle oils in an easy-applicator pen.  We hope to inspire and motivate people to go out in the sun and show off their nails!” says Rose.

Don’t Pink Twice –Bright near magenta pink with subtle blue shimmer - matte
24 Carrot Bold –Orange red polish with gold shimmer - matte

Blinded By The Bright – Neon yellow polish with a scattering of hex glitters in the 6 primary and secondary colors

Totally Razzical – A red-violet shade leaning towards the purple side of raspberry. Loaded with holographic hex glitters in magenta, silver and pink.
Grayscale – Black, White, and Gray glitters are suspended in a clear base. Circles, hexes, rectangles, and squares in so many sizes complete this glitter top coat.

Zoya PixieDust Summer 2013

--This collection was sent for review
Happy Wednesday Everyone!!  I'm scheduling this post ahead of time because I'll be in New Mexico on vacation for the next week!!  Yay!!  So, if you don't see another post from me until next week, don't fret..  I'll be back :)

I know a lot of you have already seen a zillion swatches of Zoya's Summer PixieDust Collection, but here's one more.. This collection is beautifully bright for summer..


direct sun

Zoya describes Solange as: "A gold metal foil sparkle."  I'm not a huge fan of yellow-golds.  They just don't mesh with my skin tone.  I like Solange much better in the sunlight (last pic).  The formula is flawless, though.  Two coats and you're set!


direct sun

Zoya describes Beatrix as: "A tangerine metal sparkle."  I love Beatrix.. She's my favorite of this collection!!  I've been loving orange polishes this season and Beatrix is just amazing!!  Even though Beatrix is listed as a "warm" color, I love her against my skin (which usually looks much better with cool tones)  Yay for Beatrix!  She's THE PERFECT orange matte textured polish!! :)


direct sun

Zoya describes Destiny as: "a coral metal sparkle."  I love Destiny also!!  Each of these polishes has such an awesome formula, it's almost too hard not to like them all!!  Destiny is a true coral--she's the exact color I picture when a coral polish is mentioned!  If you're a coral lover, I highly recommend this one!  Once again, two flawless coats!!


direct sun

Zoya describes Stevie as: "a violet sparkle."  Stevie is pretty.. she's more of a "lilac sparkle."  I was kinda hoping for a darker purple from this collection...(maybe there will be one in the Fall Collection).  Pictured above is three coats of Stevie (she's a bit more sheer than the others).


direct sun

Zoya describes Liberty as: "a blue sugary sparkle."  I absolutely love this color, but.. Liberty is a stainer and I couldn't get her to apply as evenly as the others.  Make sure you allow your first coat to completely dry before applying the second.  The depth of Liberty is truly gorgeous, just be sure to apply a few coats of base coat before you wear Liberty.


direct sun

Zoya describes Miranda as: "a rose sparkle."  She's much more raspberry than rose and she is beautiful!!!  Another favorite for me!!  It probably comes as no surprise though, as I'm a huge pink lover.  I wore Miranda for 3 days with minimal chipping.  Pictured above is two coats.

Ultra long-wearing, nail lacquers by Zoya are BIG5FREE - all formulas are completely free of harmful industrial chemicals such as toluene, camphor, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin and dibutyl phthalate (DBP) that are known to cause cancer and birth defects.
