I love discovering new nail brands because the fact is there are just so many out there that we would never have heard about if it weren’t for blogs. Prior to reading blogs I think I knew of maybe 10 nail polish brands and they were all readily available at drugstores or department stores. Now I know there is a whole world out there and I can’t wait to share with you yet another brand I hadn’t heard of previously, LCN.
LCN is a professional nail brand that makes luxury hand, nail and foot care products. Their vegan nail polishes are big 5 free, soy-free and gluten-free so they are appealing to those with all kinds of allergies as well as being a high-performance product. Will they stack up for me? I have two of their polishes to show you and review. As always my swatches are 2 medium coats on bare nails (no base coat, no top coat).
- The small 8ml glass bottle makes them a great size to try without committing to a giant bottle. They are also travel friendly and the square shape makes them line up beautifully (if you aren’t OCD like me you probably won’t notice that part).
- I like that the brush is a standard size despite being in a much smaller bottle. It means I can paint my nails easily and the handle is a good size to control movement.
- With both of the colours I have I managed to get 2 days wear before minor chipping occurred on my right hand (I’m right-handed). This is a good result by my standards for a polish when no base coat or top coat is used.
A vibrant chilli red shade with a high-gloss finish. It’s semi-opaque with one medium coat and completely opaque in two coats. This colour had a little bit of self-levelling so it didn’t show my ridged nails as much.
The dark, dusty pink is a cream with a slightly jelly finish – glossy but semi-opaque. This shaded also had a bit of self-levelling but it didn’t completely mask my nail ridges.
