Vegan Cruelty Free Nail Polish
I don’t get to paint my own nails often since I have a toddler running through the house, but when I do, I like to work with great formulas that are easy to apply, look great and last long enough for me to enjoy for a couple of days. LVX is a luxury vegan and cruelty free nail polish brand that fits the bill with it’s chip resistant, extra glossy, self-leveling formulas. Bonus that the entire brand uses a 7-free formula that removes the risk of several toxic ingredients found in other nail lacquer brands – something that has become more important to me now that I have a kid of my own.
I recently got my hands on the Spring/Summer 2017 collection and enjoyed using each of their fabulous colors as I slowly grow my weakened nails back to their pre-baby state. I think you’ll enjoy them as much as I do!

Polish Organization Made Easy
I’m a fan of collecting polishes and used to have a pretty big collection compared to the standard polish user. One thing that always was a problem as a polish aficionado is how to store your polish in a way where nothing breaks, all the colors are easily organized, and easy to get to. I went from using small makeup bags, to shoe boxes, to old plastic tupperware, to finally IKEA storage units. In the past year I have done a lot of purging, donating to friends and family since I want to keep things better organized and have found the perfect solution with Color Clutch.
Color Clutch satisfies the obsessive need to keep your beautiful polishes neat and tidy. The sturdy boxes house fourteen bottles that stay nestled in the foam bed to protect from messy disasters. Because of the flexibility of the foam, you can store many different brands of lacquer that vary in size and shape. It comes in either black, white or a special edition purple Jamberry option.
While I love the clear window on the front that keeps the bottles dust free and easy to quickly view, I love the color coding section on the side so you can do a swatch swipe of each polish so you don’t even have to pull the box off the shelf to see what’s inside. When I was photographing the box I was afraid to actually paint the color on in fear that once you paint on the box it’s there forever — but turns out you can remove the polish with acetone and start over if you switch out colors!
The Color Clutch is easy to travel or move with which I know is a HUGE pain when I moved with my 200+ polishes last time. These can easily be stacked and moved without worrying that there will be a huge pool of nail lacquer swimming in the back of your car. And don’t forget that you can easily bring ALL your favorites to the next ladies night in you have planned!
Each Color Clutch is $19.99 and can be purchased online or at you can find them at my third favorite store (First, being Target, second being Sephora) The Container Store. Talk about organization HEAVEN! If you have a larger collection you can easily stow all your boxes on a shelving unit which is what I plan to do.

Natural Nail Polish That Strengthens Your Nails
I’ve previously reviewed Habit Cosmetics and if you missed it you can view it here. They are a great new natural nail polish company that uses myrrh extract to strengthen the nails. Myrrh Extract is thought to have anti-inflammatory, and anti-bacterial properties which is never a bad thing to have. I absolutely love the look of their bottles and oogle their instagram photos constantly. There are so many colors to try but I seem to be attracted to blues and neutrals lately. Today I bring you Belle Epoque and Nefertiti.
Belle Epoque is described on the site as:
“A SERENE LAVENDER-BLUE INSPIRED BY THE BEST THINGS IN LIFE. GORGEOUS ON THE NAIL, AND ONE OF OUR TOP SELLERS.”
Nefertiti is described on the site as:
“A MOCHA CREME WITH COPPER SHIMMER. FIT FOR A QUEEN.”
I really need to dive into their bright fun colors next. Kitten and Hussy are calling out to me! It’ll be summer before we know it and these would look great on my toes!
