Lacquerous Review: LuxeCoat Polish

image

Here at Lacquerous, we are always on the lookout for new shades to add to our growing inventory. Social media maven Lauren has been tasked to test out some brands and let our Lacqueens know how they perform.

The latest lacquer brand I’ve been sent is LuxeCoat Polish. Founded in 2012, LuxeCoat not only creates high-quality nail polish, but they also employ a team of experts who predict what the hottest color trends will be each season.

image

The first nail polish I’m wearing is Red Hot. This fiery shade is a great classic red shade. The formula for Red Hot is good, but it ends up applying slightly thick, so you must use extremely thin coats when using this polish.

image 

The next shade I’ve tried is Pretty in Pink. This dainty baby pink is a lovely color that works perfectly as the base for a French manicure or on its own. It is pretty sheer so I applied 3 coats.

image

The final Luxe Coat Polish shade I’ve tested is Flawless. This is the best holo-glitter polish I’ve ever worn. It’s loaded with glitter and sparkles beautifully in the sun. After trying it on its own, I layered Flawless over Pretty in Pink, which is so pretty. This manicure lasted about 4 days before it started chipping. Another plus is that this glitter is super easy to remove! It only takes a few swipes of nail polish remover to take it off.

July Lacqueen: Solange Knowles

image

Every month we pick a celebrity who is on point with their nail game. As nail art and nail styling become more popular, it’s getting more challenging to pick just one! But this month we wanted to spotlight a woman who has kept her nail style on point both off and on the camera - Solange Knowles! 

image 

Solange stands out for her love of bold colors, mixed prints and retro influences, and it’s reflected in her tastes from head-to-toe. She takes risks with her manicures and proves that she is a major trendsetter. She once revealed herself to be a nail art addict, saying “I went through a phase about two years ago where I had an extreme nail art addiction. I had British flag nails, ice cream cones, gold spikes…the whole nine yards. I still rock my nail art but with a little bit more simplicity now.”

image

Whether she’s rocking Union Jacks or something simpler, Solange is always on the cutting edge of nail art trends. Here are a few more of our favorite Solange nail styles:

Instagram Roundup: Summer Lacquer Trends

Summer is finally here! Now is the perfect time to play around with your nails and try some of the top nail art trends. We turned to Instagram to find which shades are going to be big this season. Here are some of our favorites!

White lacquer has been popular for a while and we know it’s going to be even hotter this summer. White nails complement any outfit and look great against tan skin.

The shade we are most excited about this summer is coral. So many people love to pair coral with silver, which makes this color even prettier!
