Lex Seashell Glitter Gal Lizard Belly Gradient and Stamping
A while back, one of my birthday exchange buddies, Christina from the blog Passion For Polish, gave me Lex Seashell. I was so excited to try this polish because I had had Lex on my wishlist purely for the black and white damask cap design. Just so you know a bit about me, I totally FREAK over black and white damask. I heart it so bad! I also love that Lex is cruelty free and donates a portion of their profits to charity. They even have a custom nail polish program where you can share your colour story and you may get picked as the next Lex inspired nail lacquer.
So I finally got a chance to try Seashell, which is a brown with some purplish tones and a bit of grey. I also came to realized that this polish is a holo! Unfortunately, it’s not the super rainbowy dazzling holo that some of us have come to be spoiled with the likes of Ozotic or Layla Cosmetics. It is much more subtle.
I LOVE the cap design. Totally ga-ga over it. No idea why! This polish needs about three coats because there is a sheer quality to it. It’s not streaky per se, and it does self level, but even after two coats there will be some patchiness. Three coats for good opacity is what I’d recommend. Also, this baby has its own built-in shiny topcoat! These pics are after one coat of Seche Vite, but I actually think it was shinier before I topcoated it. Gorgeous!
I wanted to get a bit artsy with it, so I did sponged gradient tips using Glitter Gal Lizard Belly, which is a gorgeous blackened green holo with nice subtle rainbowy glints.
And then I wanted to stamp some pretty daisies in China Glaze Passion to finish it off. Here is the complete and finished product!
Do you have any Lex Cosmetics nail lacquers yet? Which ones?
