Hi guys! Today I have a sampling of polishes sponsored by Vixen Lacquers by Karyn genius to share with you today! I was sent four polishes, 2 of which are available right now and two that are releasing with the spring line as well as her cuticle oil. I have tested these polishes for water marbling here and I’ll get right into the swatches!

First up is Tawny Tianay, releasing soon from VLXKJ! This nude polish has some camel yellow undertones and went on smoothly opaque in 2-3 coats. I would say that the formula is a little on the thicker side, almost crelly like in consistency but self levels amazing! Tawny Tianay will retail for $10.

Next up is Coral’a DeVille, available now! Coral’a DeVille is a bright blue toned Barbie pink that has good coverage at 2 coats but was completely opaque for me in three. This polish had much the same formula as Tawney Tianay, it went on smoothly and self leveled like a dream to a gorgeous glossy finish.

Next up is my top pick, Beets By Dre! Beets By Dre is available right now and is such a gorgeous deep vampy burgundy shade! It did start out a little bit streaky but built up perfectly squishy in 3 coats. Beets By Dre will appear black on the nail in some lightings and i love how it looks matte!

The last polish I have today is Dimepiece Desi which is releasing with the spring line. Dimepiece Desi is a pink tinted jelly base filled with silver and pink micro glitters. I do prefer this polish as a topper, at 3 coats I could still see my nail line, another option is to use the sponge method to build the glitters up a little better.

Intense Nail Hydration Treatment and Cuticle Oil

The last product I have to share with you today is the Intense Nail Hydration treatment and Cuticle Oil! This retails for $7 and you get so much product for your money! This nail oils packaged in a glass bottle with a glass dropper which I love and a little goes a long way. I did find that this oil absorbed nicely into the skin and left a nice subtle sweet scent. This product claims to include “Zinc (Sweet Almond Oil), B-complex vitamins(Jojoba Oil and Vitamin E); natural form of glycolic acid (raw brown sugar) to fight bacteria, exfoliate dead skin cells, and keep skin around the nail healthy.” I will be testing this further and will update later on down the road!
