LVX Prussian Review and Photos

LVX Prussian Review and Photos

LVX Prussian, a deep blue green hue was chosen for my Monday manicure. LVX is cruelty free, vegan, and a Leaping Bunny approved brand. In addition, it’s seven free and in their words, “socially responsible.” That means it’s made without Formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, DBP, Toluene, Camphor, Xylene & Parabens. LVX is also TPHP free and Gluten Free. It is made here, in the USA.

It’s August, and where I live the hot summer will soon be gone, and the crisp fall weather will arrive. The LVX website describes it as the, “hottest color for the Fall and Winter seasons…and the perfect transition as we enter the dark nights of the autumn season.”

The photo below is taken in my family room, as the sun shines in the windows.

I think that the LVX Prussian is a gorgeous teal!  I have applied two coats of the LVX Prussian, and one coat of a top coat. This is my first attempt at nail art stamping.

 

The photo below was taken outside in very bright sun, and it was very hot and humid when I took this.

LVX Prussian is one of the LVX shades that I have in my polish collection, and I have always found that it has lived up to it’s advertised claims. LVX Prussian is rich and creamy, and it’s easy to apply, with a smooth finish and a beautiful shine. I’ve been able to get 5 days out of my manicure–so far.  I believe that I purchased the 15ML – 0.5OZ glass bottle for $18.00, but always consult their website for the current prices, and further information. I highly recommend LVX Prussian!

As a bonus to those who have read my whole post, here’s an interesting tidbit. LVX is a noun, and it means lux in Latin; Light. The essence of all color. I took Spanish in school, but apparently, had I taken Latin, I would have immediately known that a U in Latin is written as a V.

Color Club Cloud Nine Review and Photos

Color Club Cloud Nine

I almost didn’t buy Color Club Cloud Nine, a cruelty free and vegan nail polish. That’s because a while back I read some posts about how the bloggers were waiting until the sun came out to take the photos. I thought, well, good grief, how am I going to get better photos than a nail blogger?! Then, I decided, I had to try Color Club, and if I couldn’t get good photos, I would just enjoy the polish, and not post to my blog.

Color Club Cloud Nine

The Color Club Cloud Nine is a totally gorgeous linear holographic hue. Now, while Color Club writes that it is a pink shade, I think it also appears purple in many of my photos (and in real life). I don’t think you need to be a nail blogger to appreciate this one, and while holographic polishes may look their best photographed under sunlight, I found myself starting at my nails all week, under all different lighting conditions.

Color Club Cloud Nine

For the photos, I easily applied two coats of polish. If I only applied one coat, it would have been almost opaque. I was going to add nail art, and then I decided I really didn’t want to this time. I purchased other colors from Color Club, and maybe I’ll do nail art with the other shades.

This is Color Club Cloud Nine with the sun directly overhead.

Let me show you what Color Club Cloud Nine looks like in indirect light, as I work at my computer.

It’s just gorgeous, and I would highly recommend Color Club Cloud Nine!

Void Beauty Nail Polish

Void Beauty

Void Beauty is a certified cruelty free, vegan, 5-free nail polish brand that I received for review. Their motto is great: “Beauty doesn’t have to be toxic.” I previously reviewed the shades Hissy Fit and Kiss Me. It’s great that it’s also eco-friendly, and is USA based. 

Wanting our beauty products void of the things that, as the company writes, “aren’t so good for us,” Void Beauty is free of the harmful chemicals Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin and Camphor. Also, they do not have the toxic ingredients of Lead, Parabens, Xylene, and Ethyl Tosylamide.

Void Beauty is certified cruelty free from both Leaping Bunny and PETA!

You will find a great variety of nail polish shades in a 0.5 fl oz-15 ml, beautiful, glass bottle.

My goal for this post was to show how beautiful combining the two shades, Kiss Fit and Kiss Me, were on my nails. They were both gorgeous shades and worked well with my summer wardrobe.

I have two coats of polish, and a top coat, on all my nails. All were taken at various times during a sunny day!

Void Beauty Pros and Cons

The only suggestion is that something–the nail polish bottle, or the website, should have a list of ingredients used in the polish.  Otherwise, I highly recommend, and love that Void Beauty is free of so many harmful chemicals!   There is no nail polish box, but both my polishes were very safely and securely wrapped, and shipped from Amazon. If for some reason you don’t want to place an online order, they have a list of stockists on their website.  For the current price, and other information about the polish that is void of many of the awful chemicals that may be in your current nail polish, check out the Void Beauty website.

Also!! Void Beauty has very kindly offered a 15% off promo code for you to use when ordering:  MOXIE716. Let me know if you have any difficulty with that.

Void Beauty Kiss Me Review and Photos

Void Beauty Kiss Me

Void Beauty Kiss Me, is a certified cruelty free, vegan, 5-free nail polish brand, and shade that I received. I totally love their motto, “Beauty doesn’t have to be toxic.” The first Void Beauty shade I reviewed Hissy Fit, can be found at the link. Void Beauty is eco-friendly, and is USA based. 

We all certainly want our beauty products void of the things that, as the company writes, “aren’t so good for us,” so Void Beauty is free of the harmful chemicals Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin and Camphor. In addition, Void Beauty also does not have the toxic ingredients of Lead, Parabens, Xylene, and Ethyl Tosylamide.

I’m also happy to write that Void Beauty is certified cruelty free from Leaping Bunny and PETA!

Void Beauty offers customers a wide variety of nail polish shades in a 0.5 fl oz-15 ml, beautiful, glass bottle. Now, “All you have to do is pick the hues to suit your mood.” 

Here is the gorgeous Kiss Me shade!!

I took lots of photos of Void Beauty Kiss Me, an amazing shade of hot purple, with gold micro flecks. 

In the photo below, I have two coats of polish, and a top coat, on all my nails. As you can see, this was taken outside, on a beautiful, sunny day. This is the only photo with a top coat on, as it’s always recommended to make any nail polish last longer.

The photo below was actually taken the firsr day I put the Void Beauty Kiss Me on my nails. I did not apply a top coat.

Again, another photo taken on the first day I put Void Beauty Kiss Me on my nails, with no top coat. Beautiful shade and shine, and this one was even taken indoors!

This last photo was also taken on the first day that I applied Void Beauty Kiss Me. I had not yet applied a top coat. This was taken indoors, posing against an orchid.

Void Beauty  Pros and Cons

I love that Void Beauty Kiss Me is free of so many harmful chemicals, but one suggestion I would make is that something–the nail polish bottle, or the website, had a list of ingredients used in the polish. There is no nail polish box, but it was very safely and securely wrapped up, and shipped from Amazon. If for some reason you don’t want to place an online order, Void Beauty has a list of stockists on their website.  For the current price, and other information about the polish that is void of many of the awful chemicals that may be in your current nail polish, make sure to check out the Void Beauty website.

July 4th Nail Art 2016

July 4th Nail Art 2016

Deciding what designs to put on my July 4th Nail Art 2016 post took some time, and deciding what cruelty free polish to use for it took almost as long. I used Milani for my 2015 one, so I was thinking I should use a different brand. My children are now teenagers, so of course, they don’t want to be named, so I’ll just write that one of them helped me to organize my polish into red, white, and blue piles. Yes, I still went with Milani. It’s certifed cruelty free by the Leaping Bunny Program.

 July 4th Nail Art 2016

In case anyone is interested in looking into my red, white and blue shades of nail polish, the photo is below. They are all cruelty free, and most are also vegan.

 July 4th Nail Art 2016

I wanted to choose an American brand of polish, and I needed the polish to have the correct shade of, you guessed it, red, white, and blue. Milani Cosmetics has amazing quality nail polish for a very fair price. Most of the time, I can easily find their latest beauty products at my local drugstores. (Yes, you can also order online).

For the July 4th Nail Art with Milani Nail Lacquer, I used the following shades:

Milani Color Statement Nail Lacquer in Red Label

Milani Fierce Foil in Venice

Happy July 4th to my American readers!
