LVX fall 2014 collection swatches and review on BeautyJudy

This past Saturday, Mike and I went with friends to a local farm, which does hayrides into a pumpkin patch and into an orchard of apple trees for picking. Although we didn’t go on the hayride (it was very muddy having rained that morning!), we had a nice time picking out some pumpkins for our front steps, and buying apple cider donuts, pumpkin pie and fresh Jersey apples!

This is our third year going to Johnson’s Corner Farm Market with our friends, and it’s become one of the activities that shouts “FALL!” to me!

LVX‘s fall collection is a nice, sophisticated set of six lacquers in hues that match the fashion on the runway – with a surprising pink thrown in the mix!

How about some swatches?!

Macaroon:

Macaroon was a little fussy, applying streaky but leveling out in two coats. It’s a nude with a peachy hint to it, and I definitely dig this. It’s a nice staple that coordinates with a lot of the colors of fall.

Cerise:

Cerise is described by the brand as a “succulent fuchsia/vivid magenta.” It’s an interesting twist on red this season, but when you look at the fashion color palette LVX sought inspiration from (see it here), it’s on target. This was opaque in two coats and applied well. I love it.

Peony:

Peony is a surprise to me in a fall collection, but the brand says it’s meant to bridge/transition from summer (Lolli was LVX’s summer pink) to fall. In my corporate world, I see women wearing this type of feminine pink all year round, and it complements olive greens as well as spring green! Shown here in two coats.

Espresso:

Espresso is a chocolate brown. Shown here in two coats, it is, to me, a fall staple color. Black and chocolate brown are great basics for every nail lover to have! This applied well.

Oyster:

Oyster reminds me of wet cement; it’s described as a “refreshing gray with soft blue undertones.” I definitely agree with that! This applied well in two coats and I’d like to use it for nail art soon!

Anthracite:

Anthracite is a charcoal gray and another staple for fall in my opinion. The formula on this is great as well – two coats and it’s opaque.

Overall, this collection is nice. It’s surprising with Peony, unexpected with Cerise, and solid with Macaroon, Anthracite and Espresso.

You can find the collection – $16 a piece – on the LVX website here.

      LVX really nails the creme formula, I really love their polishes! They might not be the most *exciting* hues, but they are staples!
