Luxecoat Swatches!

 Fun little Artsy-Fartsy InstaGram pic! xD

Hey lovelies!
I'm sure by now you've heard of the new vegan polish brand Luxecoat, and today I have swatches of three of their pretty polishes to show you! :) 

Remember my zebra-print acrylics? Well, a few weeks ago Luxecoat was having a contest on their InstaGram page, caled the LuxecoatStyle contest, and I entered them in it. And lucky me, I was one of the winners! =D 

So this past Friday, my prize package arrived, with these three beauties inside! 

They sent me Red Hot, Goldie, and Mint Chip

(Quick apology for the staining on my cuticles, that was completely my own fault because I've been a tad neglectful to them lately, and I think really any pigmented polish would stain them that way, since they're so dry and cracked. Icky! Tsktsk, myself. LOL)
First up, Red Hot
This is probably the perfect red for me, and I usually don't like red polish. But I would describe this as the perfect cherry red color! 
Red Hot is a super bright Cherry Red creme. I was really impressed by the formula, it was thin for a creme, but not too thin. It's opaque in two coats, and dries with a nice shine to it even without top-coat! It also dries so fast! They're not kidding with that "quick drying" label! :)
There was a tiny bit of staining on the drier parts of my nails, but nothing that a little acetone and a good buffing wouldn't take away. I would recommend a base coat for this reason, but really it's nothing unexpected for such a pigmented polish, and I would recommend using a base coat for any red polish anyways. :) 

Next up, Goldie
Goldie is a gorgeous gold shimmer. My camera didn't even fully capture just how shimmery this one is, actually had trouble focusing on it because its so sparkly! :) 
This one took 3 thin coats to be opaque, but the layers dry super fast so it's not a problem. It dries with a nice foil finish, and the formula is really nice. I'm in love with the shimmer in this one! 

Last up is my favorite of the three, Mint Chip! Not gonna lie, I saw this one on their website and was suuuper hoping it would be one of the ones they sent me, and I was so excited when I opened the box and saw it! 
Mint Chip is a beautiful mint blue/green creme. It has the same great formula as Red Hot, not too thick and not too thin. It's opaque in two coats, dries super fast, and dries with that nice shine even minus top-coat. I looove this color, it's absolutely stunning and one of my favorite colors! :)  

Overall, I was super-duper impressed with Luxecoat! The formulas are great, the colors are gorgeous, and they dry in almost no time at all! I love that they're DPB free and vegan too, that always scores extra points with me! I'm officially a big fan now! :)

So thank you so much to Luxecoat for choosing me as a winner, and sending me these beauties! <3
