Hello Loves! Akzéntz Professional has released six new creams in their Luxio Gel Polish line for Spring/Summer 2015. As mentioned in my previous reviews, I continue to be impressed by the Luxio line and Akzéntz Professional products in general. These gel polishes are amazingly creamy and apply so smoothly that they practically apply themselves. They are a dream to work with, and these 6 in particular are just fabulous. I usually struggle with lighter colored creams as they tend to streak, but the coverage here is effortless. In case you missed my original review with wear test and removal results, check it out here! Ready to see some swatches?
The first new shade is a pale beige cream called Almondine. Coverage was completely opaque in two coats.
Pixie is a nicely saturated peachy shade. This one is also two coats. Heck, they all are! Pixie is a little warmer in the bottle than it appears on me. The yellow undertones in my skin draw out the peach. :)
Darling is very aptly named! This is a gorgeous, highly saturated pink cream with coral tones. I can see this one getting a lot of love this summer!
Enlighten is another saturated cream, but this one is green! I want to call it a mint green, but it is almost too saturated for mint. Maybe a mint and lime mix? Either way, she's beautiful.
This collection has two beautiful blues! Whimsical is the lighter of the two and is yet another highly saturated shade. This is the color I tend to gravitate toward for spring. I so love my blues!
Fanfare is an absolutely stunning purple leaning blue cream. I hope this one shows correctly on your monitor, because the slight purple undertones give it a vibrancy that is unmatched in my large gel polish collection. There is absolutely nothing dusty about this medium blue! It completely blue me away (see what I did there? Yes, I know...but I haven't dropped a corny line on you in a while so it was long overdue lol).
I love Fanfare so much that I couldn't resist turning her into a full mani. Since I haven't done a doticure in a while, I just couldn't resist pairing dots with a few miniature roses. The roses are a combination of Fanfare, Whimsical and GelPlay White. The stems and leaves are Enlighten with GelPlay White accents. I adore how the colors play so well together. They almost blend and start to play tricks on the eyes. Unfortunately, the dots make Fanfare appear much lighter, but I still love how it turned out.
