LVX Fall 2014 Collection Swatches and Review

Hey guys, I've got another amazing new-to-me brand to show you today - a high end salon brand called LVX! They're vegan, cruelty-free, and 5-free, and their gorgeous creme polishes are inspired by high fashion runway looks so you'll always have access to the latest trends. The collection I'm showing you today is the Fall 2014 Collection, and it consists of six gorgeous creamy polishes that are perfect to rock this season and into winter.

As you can see, these colors are all pretty classic, and I think they can all be worn year round! The formula these was incredibly smooth and self levelling, and the overcap easily pops off so you can paint your nails with the regular bottle cap brush. Let's take an individual look:

Macaroon is a gorgeous light peachy beige creme. As it's so light and sheer, I figured this polish would be patchy and thick, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that it applied smoothly and left an even coat with each brush stroke! This is the perfect work-appropriate neutral shade to wear in the fall. Shown above is three thin coats for full opacity, plus top coat.

Espresso is a rich chocolatey brown creme. Another gorgeous staple for fall! The formula was just perfection on this one, and the color is so rich and smooth. Shown above is two easy coats plus top coat.

Cerise is a bold creme that falls somewhere between red and pink. Red is such a classic fall shade, and this is great take on it! In natural light, it has a really hot pink tone, but in artificial light, you can see the reddish tones come out to play. Shown above is two easy coats plus top coat.

Peony is a light, cool-toned pink creme that can be worn any time of year! I especially like cool toned pale colors like this during the winter for a hint of color. And this one is so creamy and feminine! Shown above is two easy coats plus top coat.

Oyster is a perfect gray creme with just a hint of blue undertone. I absolutely love rocking gray nails, and I can always add a color like this to my stash! But what makes this color unique is that it gives you full coverage in just one coat - that's right, you're looking at one coat plus top coat in the photo above! This is a perfect neutral color to wear at work all through winter.

And finally, we have Anthracity, a deep charcoal gray creme with a jelly-like formula. What a gorgeous shade for fall! This color did apply a bit more sheer than the others, but I achieved full opacity in just two coats. If you have longer nails, you might want to throw on a third coat to cover up any visible nail line. Shown above is two easy coats plus top coat.

Overall, I think LVX is another wonderful brand to add to your collection! The colors are rich and classic, and they are spot on with upcoming and current trends. And of course, the formulas are so easy to work with - you definitely don't have to be an expert to paint a perfect manicure with these polishes. My favorites are Macaroon, Peony, and Oyster.

  1. Some nice creme shades in here. I've never tried LVX colors before but they look fantastic from your swatches. I like the Cerise color a lot.
