If you’re always on the lookout for your next favorite nail color, then you’ll probably want to mark your calendar for the release of the LVX Summer 2014 collection. While many other brands are gearing up for the season with neons and brights, LVX is pulling out sugar-soaked shades. Lemondrop and Laguna pair as nicely as a tall glass of lemonade and perfectly clear pool on a sunny day. Lolli is unlike any shade of pink LVX currently has in their repertoire, while Aster is the sort of vibrant purple that fits right in at a warm outdoor concert. Get it beginning May 15th at shoplvx.com.[Images...
