Luxe Lacquers - July 2014 Subscription Box (swatches and review)

Hi Everyone! Today I have swatches and my review of  the Luxe Lacquers July 2014 Subscription Box! You can check out my review of June' box here.

Luxe Lacquers
A little recap about the company:
Luxe Lacquers, Inc. is a premium nail lacquer subscription service. For $29.99/month you'll receive 4 full sized polishes with free shipping in the U.S. and Canada. They state you can cancel or suspend your subscription at any time, no questions asked. (polishes are 17ml!)

Luxe states on their website that they are a brand of quality, environmentally responsible nail lacquers, that deliver premium, cruelty free, 5-free lacquers in the latest shades. A portion of your subscription is donated to the Malala fund- an organization dedicated to educating and empowering adolescent girls in developing countries around the world.

First off....another amazing unboxing! Roxy really knows how to give you that "wow factor" when you open the box! Just as before, it was all neatly wrapped in awesome zebra tissue paper with a satin ribbon containing the company name. Once you unwrap the paper there is a layer of crinkle cut packing paper with little diamondy gems mixed in. Each polish was in its own sealed baggy for safe transport, then another layer of crinkle cut paper beneath the polishes. Great presentation as always!


Now...onto the swatches!

First up is Poppy! In the bottle this appears to be a crazy bright, almost barbie hot pink!. On the nail it takes on a little redder tone, like a NEON hot pink/red! It's awesome and so so creamy and pigmented! It is almost a one coater! When I say almost, it is basically dependant upon whether you plan on taking close up pictures or If I were just putting it on to go out, or whatever, I would probably only do one coat. For picture taking purposes, I think 2 coats is necessary. Another nice thing about the formula, is that it dries to a matte-like finish. It's sort of a shiny matte if that makes any sense. Reminds me of really smooth plastic..haha! (I'm not the best at descriptions, if you haven't noticed by now)

First I did 2 coats alone without a topcoat. Isn't is pretty?! Next I added HK Girl topcoat by Glisten & Glow and then a with flash shot, because it looks so cool with flash! In the last pics, I used black acrylic paint for the zebra print and the black square studs are from Winstonia.

Next is Siena! Another great formula, this is also a creme that is a lovely sunflower yellow! Again it is highly pigmented. Most yellows I've tried have been on the thicker side, but this was surprisingly not! It is opaque in 2 coats and really shiny on its own, though for my pictures I did 3 coats plus topcoat. In the last pics I created the sunflower using acrylic paint and the gold studs are from Winstonia.


Next up is Anne! Yet another fantastic creme formula, this one is sort of a sea foam green in color and is opaque in 2 coats. It has a beautiful micro glittery silver shimmer throughout that is gorgeous! Again, I did 2 coats plus topcoat. In the last pics I used white acrylic paint for the designs and that beautiful starfish charm is from Charmingly Simple Nail Art, whom you should also check out!


Last, but not least, is Mila! It is amazing! Such a bright sexy purple with blue undertones, that also has a sort of metallic finish. And it is so shiny! Again this one was super opaque and is almost another one coater! It gives you that duo chrome feeling. In certain angles is looks completely blue, but in another its a magnificent purple. So gorgeous!. For my pictures I did 2 coats plus topcoat and the gold studs are from Winstonia.


I was really impressed with June's box, but July's box is even better! Amazing, fun colors; perfect for summer! Every polish had great formula and they were all very pigmented. Roxy has done another fantastic job!
