Hello lacquered lovelies! Another Monday. Hopefully some of you have the day off - it's a holiday, isn't it? I really have no idea, since I never work Mondays anyway and classes are officially over - I'm just waiting on all of my marks now. I'm glad it's all over but I still hate this part, the waiting sucks!
Today I have a lovely polish from Lex Cosmetics to show you. I looooooove Lex, but let me allow the "about" section of their website explain why!
So dig through magazines for inspiration, upload pictures of colors you love or just tell us what beauty products you are looking for and we'll make them. Because at Lex Cosmetics, Beauty is By You.
How awesome is that? How many times have you been thinking of a nail polish and been unable to find it? It happens to me ALL the time, so I love the idea of a company that will take your ideas and make them into a reality! And the owner, Alexa, is super sweet, which is an added bonus!
I'm showing you a polish called Yes! today. Yes! was created by Jackie and was inspired by a rose petal in an arrangement from the night she got engaged. How sweet is that? I thought the story behind it was adorable and the colour isn't something I'd normally go for, so I decided to try it out!
Yes! is a very bold red-based pink creme. Application was an absolute dream. I was originally just going to swatch this but I ended up wearing it as a full mani and got lots of compliments - it's attention-grabbing without being overpowering and I think it's really flirty and feminine. I used two coats and topcoat for these pictures. Yes! was quite shiny on its own but I just wanted the extra protection!
Can I also just say that these bottles are so freakin' cute? I love the shape of them and the cap is adorable.
Haha, it's a little less than glamourous, I know, but this is where I take pictures - for a couple of hours when it's sunny out, I get the best light right outside my door! I had this bottle out when a few people came over last week and they commented on how cute it was, as did my new roommate! I'm a sucker for cute packaging, but thankfully, there's something awesome inside!
The fact that $1 from the purchase of each polish goes toward a charity of the creator's choosing really closes the deal for me. The dollar from every purchase of Yes! goes toward breast cancer research and there are a ton of other charities and causes that you can help out just by buying a bottle of nail polish! You'll get a great polish and you'll be doing a good thing - it's a win-win for me, really.
Lex polishes can be purchased on their website and are $10 each. Each polish has an interesting story behind it and it's so cool to see what other people have come up with! I'm definitely eyeing the website now... I'm sure you won't be surprised, but Himalaya and Haggard Life are calling me. They look stunning!
So that's it from me today! What do you guys think? Isn't this gorgeous? I can't wait to wear it on my toes! Have you tried any polishes by Lex Cosmetics? Do you plan to? I can't wait to get my paws on some more, I wish all cremes applied as beautifully as Yes! did - it would make me into a creme lover for sure!
Have a beautiful day, lovelies, and I hope to talk to some of you in the comments!
