Pixi Luminous Lilac Swatches

Pixi Luminous Lilac is a pink-toned pastel lilac with a subtle shimmer.  I first spotted this shade when I bought Coral Cabana but since I haven't tried this brand before I just leave it.  A few weeks later I visited their store at Fouberts Place again and grabbed this as well.  I was simply attracted by the shimmer in the bottle! 


I think this polish was on the sheer side and it dragged on application.  Swatches shown with 2 coats of Luminous Lilac and one top coat.  


From the macro shot below, you can see the shimmer actually comes from the silvery flecks. 



On the ring finger, I topped a coat of Models Own Ibiza Mix to spice it up a bit.



Have you got yourself a bottle of Ibiza Mix yet? I really like it! It's very versatile and looks good with almost every pastel shade I can think of. 

Have a great weekend! Cheers xx

  9. Nice spring pastel, I've never seen this brand anywhere though. Good old Ibiza Mix, I wasn't keen on it at first but the more I see it the more I like it :)

    1. Besides their store in central London, I think you can find Pixi polish at asos.com and I've seen some larger Boots stock them, but no nail polish! And Ibiza Mix, I think you should get it, really versatile ;)

  10. i can totally see what you mean by the shimmer, it's really eye catching even though it's subtle! i think ibiza mix looks AWESOME layered over it! your macro shot is amazing. i didn't get it at first because i thought it was another dupe for deborah lippmann happy birthday, but i can see now how wrong i was!

  12. What a gorgeous colour! The silvery flecks are really understated but they do give the polish some added interest and dimension. I wish I could get my hands on Ibiza Mix, the glitter is so pretty and varied and looks lovely over the pastel base :)
