Lex Cosmetics Arcoiris

As you may know, we’re big fans of Lex Cosmetics around here. It’s a very unique company. All the nail polishes are the brain child of polish lovers that submit their ideas. Those ideas are then voted on and the winning idea is made into a polish. Not only are the polishes great, but a dollar from every bottle of polish sold it donated to a charity of the creator’s choice. Katie was lucky enough to have her color idea, Atlantic, made into a polish.

Lex’s most recent polish is Arcoiris (aka Spanish for rainbow). It’s basically fun in a bottle! Acroiris has 3 different size glitters of various colors suspended in a clear base. Each size of the glitter has purple, silver, orange, yellow-gold, blue and green glitter with silver being the most dominate color. Most of the glitter is the smaller size, followed by the medium glitter then the large. The glitter is this polish is not dense but isn’t sparse either. I used two coats in all my swatches. Below the jump I posted a picture of this polish on a white piece of paper so you can really see the different types of glitter.

When I posed a picture of Arcoiris in the bottle over on TDV’s Facebook page a couple of you posted potential dupes. When it comes to these rainbow glitter polishes none of them are 100% dupes of eachother. The glitter colors, sizes and shapes never match up exactly. That being said, this is similar to Deborah Lippmann Happy Birthday, OPI Rainbow Connection, Nicole by OPI Rainbow in the S-Kylie, Sephora by OPI Spark-tacularm Milani Gem and wet n wild fastdry Party of Five Glitters (did I leave any out!?).

All of these rainbow glitter polishes are meant to be used as a top coat though I did swatch Arcoiris on my bare nails so you could really see the glitter (my nails are still recovering from the CND Stickey incident, so I apologize!). I didn’t wear this glitter on it’s own, I wore it over Essie No Place Like Chrome and I got SO many compliments! The girl ringing me up at the grocery store told me she loved my nails because they were so eye catching.

So, below the jump there are a slew of pictures, including Arcoiris over No Place Like Chrome. If you’re unfamiliar with the Lex Cosmetics bottle make sure to check it out below the jump as well. It’s so pretty. This is definitely a polish I will be displaying on my DIY nail polish rack!

  1. Everyone needs one or two of these rainbow pretties. The first one I owned was the now (and then too) coveted OPI Mad As A Hatter (more opaque than this one)…I also fell hard for Happy B’day (Deb Lip) as have many…and I bought OPI Rainbow Collection. I like this one because it does not have the a ton of gold in it – it’s where I draw a dividing line between these multi color glitters – ones with gold and ones with little to none – the ones with gold and silver sometimes seem too much going on for me. I don’t have any of this brand (yet) but keep seeing it featured in blogs. Probably not being a huge glitter fan I would buy a non glitter shade in this brand to try it out – but I like these rainbows – like to use them in a jelly sand.

    • I agree with the gold. I don’t like a ton of gold in rainbow glitters.

      You should give Lex a try….the polishes are wonderful and it’s a great company!
