LCN Winter 2013 Homecoming Collection Swatches: Knitting Wool and Berry Punch

LCN Knitting Wool (3 coats)

LCN Berry Punch (2 coats)

LCN is a new brand to me, and they are a luxury European hand, nail and foot care line that also happen to be 5-free. Count me in! The bottles are only 8 ml instead of the usual 15 ml, so keep that into consideration. Up first is my favorite of the 4-piece collection called Knitting Wool which is a vanilla white creme. Yup, it reminds me of vanilla ice cream. It's like when you go to your local hardware store with paint and you just want white, and they have a million variety of whites. Well, in the nail polish world, there really aren't that many whites so I really appreciate them having a different kind of white. The only down side is the application which was streaky and thick. I ended up having to use 3 very thin coats to even things out. Other than that, I really love this polish.

When I saw Berry Punch in the bottle it immediately reminded me of Essie's The Lace is On. I haven't done a direct comparison, but I think this one is a lighter berry magenta color with a stronger blue flash. Either way, this is a very beautiful jewel color. I'm happy to report that the application and formula was perfect on this one in 2 coats. 

You can find LCN polishes at the LCN Boutique for $7.50 each or $24.90 for all 4. If you want to learn more, follow them on Facebook or Twitter.
