Pixi Luminous Lilac (+ OPI Polka.com)

Pixi Luminous LilacLuminous Lilac has been a go to subtle but not boring polish for me since the first day I tried it. So, naturally, when I was looking for a polish for an understated manicure I ended up digging this polish out of my Melmer. I forgot how gorgeous it is!

This polish was part of Pixi’s initial nail polish launch at Target. In the bottle this didn’t look like anything special. But when I got it on the nail it was instant love.

Luminous Lilac is a pink leaning lilac polish with gorgeous, glass fleck shimmer. The shimmer gives this polish just a little something extra and adds interest to an otherwise basic color.

The formula is, for such a light color, wonderful. I used three coats in my swatches.

As much as I love this polish it’s not something I wanted to wear out on a Friday night. This past Friday I had plans to grab dinner at Food Truck Friday before going to a benefit for the Oklahoma tornado relief effort and as usual I was running late. Shocker, right? The perfect solution was to top this polish with glitter. I decided to use my birthday miracle OPI Polka.com. These two polishes together looked fabulous! So fabulous, in fact, I was sad to take it off on Sunday night.

Below the jump there are additional swatches of Luminous Lilac along with swatches of my Friday night manicure.

Along with Target, Pixi polish is available on the Pixi website (free shipping on all orders over $50 and an additional 20% off with code PIXISHARE) and Pixi is periodically on Hautelook. If you still haven’t gotten your hands on OPI Polka.com (seriously, what are you waiting for!) it’s still available at Ulta and drugstore.com.

  1. Still a horrible time reaching your site off the email links that come since you two moved your site – something is really not right – and I have cleared my cache…it’s only from your email notices of a new blog…I keep getting 404 page not found and having to manually enter your URL and find the most recent posted blog.

    I am sucker for pinky/mauves…this is pretty.

    1. In the email if you click the post title link it works. It’s the read more link that is still not working correctly.

      We’re working on it. Honestly, there have been SO MANY small things we’ve been trying to work out we just haven’t been able to get to (or fix) everything yet. It’s on our (very long) list though!

What do you think?
