Hi guys! I hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was wonderful and relaxing.
I am excited to introduce some brand new products from Akzentz for Fall & Winter 2014.
Akzentz gel products are all formulated in house in Canada, and I find their formulations far superior to many other brands. I was taught by a good friend of mine, Mami Griffin, a nail stylist superstar herself, who instilled I always smell a product to see how strong the chemicals used in it are. When compared to other brands I test Akzentz always wins the smell/chemical test by a landslide. Not only that, but I find Akzentz products to be of top- notch quality.
For their Luxio UV/LED Soak Off Gel Polish line, they have introduced 6 new colors for the Fall/Winter season: Seduction, Magic, Wisp, Silver, Rose Gold, and Gold. I have a couple of them to share with you here.
I tried Rose Gold: a fine rose gold glitter. A great rose gold is very difficult to come by, and I Love this one, its perfect! I highly suggest you pick it up. I applied three coats here for full opacity.
Seduction: a shimmering blackened ruby red. I applied two coats.
They have introduced 10 new shades to their UV/LED Options Gel Line, a potted gel for traditional paint on application with a gel brush; very Japanese style- super Kawaii 😉 . The 10 new shades include: Cobalt Blue, Berry Truffle, Sweet Maple, Blue Moon, Floral White, Purple Dusk, Purple Smoke, Fire, Merlot, and Mulberry. This is an additional 10 shades to their over 140 colors and counting. I also have a couple of these to share with you all.
I tried Merlot: a glistening dark Merlot purple, with a very fine glitter shimmer to it up close.
Blue Moon: a deep dark navy blue creme.
This was my first time trying out the Options products from Akzentz, and I am really impressed. I found them to be highly pigmented, providing complete coverage in two coats, as shown here. The formula was self leveling and easy to work with. There was zero brush strokes or any issues. If you are interested in trying a good potted gel that can cure in both UV and LED look no further. I highly suggest you try the Options line from Akzentz.
Akzentz is also introducing their brand new Matte-On, a brush on matte effect top coat. It "can be applied over any cured gel as a final top coat to add a velvety matte look and feel," according to the press release. I used Matte-On here over three shades from the Luxio Gel Polish line: Spirit (dark blue), Myth (teal), & Breathless (powder blue). It is incredible easy to use and the results are stunning.. You can transform literally any gel color you already own into a new, very on trend, matte look. Customers will be very pleased and highly interested, I can assure you.
