LVX Fall 2015 Collection with Marvelous Marble

I'm not sure if you guys know, but LVX as a brand has no sheer colors. Their formula is all full-coverage...until now! They're branching out of their prudish ways to reveal a little more nudity...of the nail. The Fall 2015 collection offers two shades that are slightly more sheer than any in the past, and I can only see it going off from there.

There are two sheerish shades, and I liked the idea of pairing one of them with gold in particular, and after a Pinterest inspiration binge, I found a pattern I liked a lot (here). Here's what I came up with.

Marvelous Marble by Katy at Nailed It - www.blognailedit.co
I used a non-LVX shade for the base (I Cannoli Wear OPI from OPI...obviously), but the other three shades are all from the collection I'm reviewing today: Rhone, Militaire, and a line of Monarch.

To get the marble texture, I striped random, squiggly lines of Militaire very lightly. Some of the lines I watered down with a little acetone before and after I applied. It was a lot of back and forth, smudging with acetone and then retracing with fresh polish. Ultimately I think it looks pretty accurate to what marble is, don't you think?

Now let's take a look at the collection.

First, I have to say this is one of the most well put together collections I've seen for fall. All the colors make sense, and they all work well with each other. I've already used all of these colors on clients and they're all thrilled each time. I say I'd have to agree!

LVX - MilitaireLVX - MilitaireMilitaire (1-2 coats) covers amazingly well! If I'd applied just a tad bit more carefully, 1 coat would've been plenty. This color does have a militant feel to it...kind of that greyish-green you'd associate with a military or army uniform. Really great creme!

LVX - MonarchLVX - MonarchMonarch (3 coats) is a yellow-gold foil that needed a little more than 2 coats for nice even coverage. It gave the marble tips I made the perfect midas accent.

LVX - RhoneLVX - RhoneRhone (2 coats) is the first sorta-sheer in this collection (you can see the free edge of my ring finger a little in this swatch). It's a nude blush creme.



LVX - NarcissistLVX - NarcissistOh Narcissist (2 coats)...I don't even have to tell you how beautiful you are...you obviously already know! This is an awesome multi-chrome with mainly teal and purple colors, but it's hard to describe fully with just colors. The best way to think of it is as the back of a scarab beetle, like this little guy!

LVX - NuLVX - NuNu (3 coats) caused me some problems during application. After 1 coat, it was a flesh creme that looked pretty good with one coat, but my swatches are usually at least 2 coats (since that's the industry standard). However, after the second coat, it became a streaky hot mess that I kind of hated, so I applied a third to even it out. Then it was ok, but I still don't love it. (My own personal opinion there.)

LVX - SiennaLVX - SiennaFinally, there's Sienna (2 coats). Google "sienna color" and you'll find a bunch of pictures of this exact color, which is a brick red mud. Awesome fall shade that's not a traditional red or brown!

The Fall 2015 collection, and all the other LVX collections are available through their site here. There's a color for everyone's taste in this collection, so don't miss it if you want to be wearing the most modern shades.
