This weekend Elizabeth, the creator of LYZ Cosmetics realised a new limited edition collection of five scented nail polishes:
The colors are named in accordance with the collection’s title:
In this post I’ll show you pictures and swatches of three of the polishes. First comes Harmony:
Harmony is a blue well pigmented shimmer, the brush is of a comfortable size, not too thin or too thick.
Here’s how Elizabeth describes Harmony:
Harmony is needed for a band to be collectively unique and yet portray their individuality. This Royal Flash Cobalt Blue Polish is heavily peppered with gold/pink microflakies and contains high quality organic Japanese clary sage essential oil, that makes this product’s formula smooth and delightful to apply with its earthy and fruity note.
I’d love to add that the scent is quite strong but not disturbing. I wore the polish for one day, and both the polish and the aroma stayed great.
On my nails I have LYS’s Harmony in 2 coats with a glossy top.
The second polish is called Aria:
It’s quite unusual to see such a dark rich green in a collection that was realised just before the summer. I must be under influence of stereotypes, because Aria screams Christmas to me!
This polish is a dark sea green with scattered silver/gold microflakies and a modest metallic brown shift. The organic Japanese Ylang Ylang essential oil is infused to give it a freshly aromatic floral fragrance, yet delicate to your senses.
Formula wise Aria is perfect. It applies smoothly, dries fast and is decently opaque in 2 coats.
A macro of the beauty:
Also, I did a comparison of Harmony and Aria, to show you how green and blue they are next to each other.
Finally, here’s the third (and last) Lyrical polish for today: the pale orange is called Melody.
The brush and the golden shimmer:
Elizabeth seduces us describing Melody:
Melody is the true goal of music. This polish is a caramel apricot shade formulated with a slight crystal pink shift and gold microflakies. Sweet tooth lovers, this product is seasoned with an awfully addictive honeyed scent – the organic Japanese sweet orange essential oil – that will leave you wanting more.
Amazing color, nice scent and I love the golden shimmer in this one. For me the only downside of the polish was its formula, because it was a bit too thick for my liking. Nothing serious, really, I just needed to be careful when applying the polish. However the pastel apricot shimmer was worth the trouble.
…and a usual macro:
Overall, Lyrical collection turned out to be very interesting… unexpectedly dark but beautiful for sure! I think my favourite from the trio wold be Aria. I’ll try to save at least some of this green for Christmas holidays :)
