LVX Fall Winter 2012 Collection

greige 2

Polish newcomer LVX (pronounced lux) is back with its sophomore collection, Fall Winter 2012! At a glance, this collection strikes me as a colorful medley that was careful chosen to offer winter staples, not necessarily break color ground. How about some swatches?! After the review, check out the brand’s upcoming Winter Resort 2013 collection, and new 3-in-1 treatment. …

Is this the hot, new dupable polish of fall/holiday 2012?

winter dupe 2

Folks, I think we have the new Chanel Peridot (aka, highly dupable polish). Now, I don’t know who had it first. Honestly they all came out about the same time, although the first one I got was Zoya Feifei, which was in the fall collection. I saw OPI’s first in July at Cosmoprof, but it’s part of the …

Fall is in the Air!

fall leaves 2

Every year I stamp myself a falling leaves manicure – it’s like my way of ushering the new season…a tradition! This year I wanted to do the same mani, but with a twist! I finally felt like my fall leaves mani was right after doing a bit of fall decorating recently - Mike and I did up Halloween for the …

New Sally Hansen Lustre Shine

copperhead 2

I love that the nail industry is embracing the nail community’s love of duochrome/multichromal nail polish by giving us collections devoted to the two-tone goodness, and they’ve definitely offered us some great polishes. But I’m a little disappointed at the same types of duos each brand is putting out. I appreciate that all the brands jump …

OPI Germany Collection

berlin there done that 2

Although we aren’t even engaged yet, Mike and I have always talked about doing the “homeland tour” for our honeymoon. We would love to visit Germany and Holland, because we both have German ancestry, and I have Dutch ancestry! I was completely thrilled that this year OPI decided to do both a Holland and a Germany collection, …

Jessica Spicy Dream Fall 2012

brown sugar 2

Jessica has come out with a six-piece fall polish collection that for me, really translates changing leaves, Halloween and autumn night onto the nail! Spicy Dream is as warm as a chiminea fire in the backyard, with a variety of colors that you might see on Thanksgiving table clothes and fall decorations in your neighbor’s window. Swatching these got …

LVX Summer 2012 Collection

aviero 2

One of the new brands I highlighted in an earlier roundup post about Cosmoprof North America (held in Las Vegas, July 22-24) was LVX (Latin; pronounced lux). In my conversation with the creative director, Branka, I learned what she hopes will make this up-and-comer polish brand different from other brands. Branka said LVX is not just a …

Cosmoprof 2012: New Stuff from American International Industries (aka, China Glaze!)

aii 2

When most people think about China Glaze, they don’t think that the brand is a sibling to various false lash brands, or skin care…or even men’s shaving care! But it is! And the American International Industries booth at Cosmoprof North America (held in Las Vegas July 22-24) was hopping with awesome goodies to share again, this year! …
