On the verge with Viridian by LVX.

Emerald, named Color of the Year for 2013 by Pantone, is this season's it color.
Our adaptation of this stunning gemstone is vivacious and will intensify any outfit.
Pair this bold green with soft, romantic purples, like Azalea.


This shade is amazing and these photos do not do it justice. Not as richly jewel-toned as I was expecting, I found Viridian to more emerald with a Miami flair. It is perfectly delicious for Spring and it my new favourite colour... I can not stop staring at my nails!

Viridian is a blue-green pigment of medium saturation and relatively dark in value. It is composed more of green than blue. Specifically, it is a dark shade of spring green, the color between green and cyan on the color wheel. Viridian takes its name from the Latin viridis, meaning "green".


It takes only 2 coats of Veridian to cover my nails completely but I find requires slight care in it's application. I wait 4 minutes before my second coat so the first has time to set, otherwise it can look a little streaky. I notice this is only prevalent on the cream finishes not the metallics. Veridian is opaque and while I did not use a base coat, I did finish with a top coat so my nails displayed high shine and did not dull. I used Butter London Hardwear as my topcoat and after, they almost looked like a gel mani!


This is not my first experience with LVX. I have fallen hard for this 5-free line and their limited edition shades from our first meeting through BeautyARMY. See, the only saturation that LVX works with is pigments - not products. This line is curated with only 6 shades per season which are being featured on the hottest runways around the globe. This international spice for life and limited colour line means LVX is always on trend which is why I don't think of it as polish, I think of it as an accessory for my nails.

My first attempt at nail art, featuring Fantom and Cerulean.
It smudged when I applied the top coat. *sad face*

I rate Viridian 4.5 stars out of 5. Even though these polishes tend to chip a bit sooner than other brands, their high quality and amazing pigment payoff keep these high on my rating scale. Available now, LVX retails for $16 per vessel. Fashioned of glass with a deco cap that lifts to reveal the applicator, these jars are well weighted and feel as comfortable as the colours they contain are gorgeous.

Have you treated yourself to any of the shades from this vegan line?
Which ones?
