Butter London and LVX Swatches

Hey guys, I am back today with some FABULOUS polishes.

Recently I won a giveaway over on LVX's Facebook page. I won two of their polishes, Cashmere and Indigo Bleu. They are unable to ship to Hawaii, so I had a good online friend get the package shipped to her, and then she sent it along to me. It finally came today and tonight I just had to try them out.

I also just went to Nordstrom Rack yesterday, and this one here is relocating just down the street so they had a lot of clearance. Along with a Butter London Lippy I got for $1, I got Butter London Shambolic for $1. SCORE!

LVX retails for $16 each, and Butter Lond retails for $15 each, so these are the most expensive polishes I have in my collection. I am very excited to have, in my opinion, some luxury polishes finally!

Since they are both high end, I decided to swatch them for the same post. I used a USB LED light and my digital camera for all shots. I really want to get my digital camera to work for all shots now, so I am trying to make it work. Sometimes my tan skin comes out bright white, sorry about that!

First up, I have Butter London Shambolic. As per Butter London's website, this is how they describe the color, "A vibrant magenta nail lacquer flecked with red, blue and gold micro-particles. This sultry glitter channels a distinctly retro, 70’s feel. High impact sparkle for Disco Divas." I did three coats, but it appears more thin and sheer in the photo than it did in real life. I needed no cleanup at all.

Next up, I have to show you those two gorgeous jelly/creme polishes I won from LVX.

Here is Cashmere. This is described on LVX's website as follows: "The perfect muted bright, Cashmere is a cool gray that conquers the typical deep autumnal hues. This refreshing neutral pairs well with every color in the palette. For a classic look, pair Cashmere with deep shades of blue and red." I did one coat on my pointer and pinky, and two on my middle and ring, only because I did one thick coat on two nails and the other two didn't match up. I am not a fan of plan colors, but for some reason I kinda love this. This required no cleanup at all!

The last polish I have to show you, which is the second of the two LVX polishes, is Indigo Bleu. This one is described by LVX as "A unique twist to the classic maritime hue, Indigo Bleu is the ultimate dark and mysterious shade for the season. With its mix of deep and intricate purple and blue undertones, this new bleu grounds our palette and provides us with a sultry dark to be paired with the brights of Spring." I did one coat only, and needed cleanup for this one. I kept this one on for both of my hands as it goes with my outfit for tomorrow.

Well, I hope you guys enjoyed my swatches. LVX can be purchased from their site here and Butter London polishes can be purchased on their site here.

That's it! I will talk to you guys later, bye!
