SWATCH REVIEW: LCN – COLOR ME UP
LCN is a European company that brings the secrets of German research across the pond to North America. Currently, LCN is the world’s 3rd leading manufacturer of cosmetic nail products (impressive!). We fell in love with LCN back when we saw a few sites posting the UNREAL Croco Effect top coat (stay tuned…) & couldn’t wait to see what else they had in store. The ‘Color Me Up’ collection features 4 vibrant 80′s inspired shades – right on trend for the summer.
Fanappleistic - a true French green, this shade has a yellowy base & a vibrant over all colour. The formula was great – applying completely even with just two coats. We usually aren’t huge fans of lighter greens, but there’s just something about this shade! This colour would also work perfectly for a summery floral nail art design.
Some Like it Hot - this bright coral red is essential for summer and would look even more amazing on tanned skin. If you’re a classic red wearer, this shade is a nice change for the summer months. The pinky-red shade applied evenly with two coats for the pictures below. We always love a classic coral & this has been added to our favourites list!
Spice Up Your Life – …and now this song has now been stuck in our heads for a like a solid week (we aren’t complaining)! This colour is a deep creamy orange, more of a a vibrant blood orange than a true orange. It reminds us of Pantone – Tangerine Tango aka. the colour of the year, making it our favourite of the collection. We used 3 coats for no visible nail line for the pictures below – again, great creamy formula.
Color Me Up - the stand out in the collection, darker than the other shades. This grape shade has a subtle golden-purple shimmer giving it that little something extra. We searched our collection and we have a ton of softer lilac, shades & a bunch of plums, but we are seriously lacking medium grape purple shades – why this is a perfect addition to the collection! The formula for this shade was a tad thinner than the other – very easy to work with, needing barely two coats for the pictures below. Colour Me Up was a close second favourite of the collection.
LCN’s Color Me Up collection is bright & vibrant and perfect for the summer time – with only 4 shades in the collection, they make it count not having any duds and all great colours to wear on their own or incorporate into a nail art design. We HAVE to mention LCN’s Orchid Nail Polish Remover- this product is truly, truly a gamechanger & that’s extremely difficult in the nail world, especially with remover. The #1 complaint about remover is obviously the harsh smells but this acetone-free remover smells like sweet vanilla orchid amazingness (!!) & not just a scent trying to cover up a harsh one. The formula has an oil like texture and works just as well as any other remover – if you are sensitive to removers &/or hate the smell, this product is for you. The LCN – Color Me Up collection is available now & can be purchased at your local beauty supply store or the LCN site for $7.50 USD.
