LaCC Fall/Winter Collection Part 1

Good Sunday morning to you!

What better way to spend a Sunday morning than swatching a bunch of beautiful, luxurious polishes? I'm lucky to bring you one of the most sought after new brands, La Couleur Couture or LaCC for short.

This passage is taken from LaCC's website

Headquartered in Vancouver and manufactured in New York, la couleur couture is devoted to providing you the highest quality nail lacquers that are cruelty free, and without the use of harsh chemicals and toxic ingredients. Vegan, breathable,  gluten and paraben free, our products are made without  formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, DBP, camphor and toluene. More information on LaCC products can be found here: LaCC Beauty
I have other colours by LaCC and found that the quality is immaculate. They are chip resistant and I find that they last longer than common brands like OPI and Essie. They have a wider, flat brush to allow for easy application, which is especially helpful when applying dark colours that are unforgiving when they get on your cuticles.
The colours for Fall and Winter are darker and rich in saturation. Many of them apply well with full coverage in just one coat. They are very smooth so when applying them, you do not need much on your brush. All swatches today were done with 2 coats and no top coat.
I will split up the review into 2 parts to maximize picture quality. The first set are the red-purple shades of the group.

The first colour I'll show you up close is 1981, a peachy nude creme. 

Next is 1940, a dark blood red, perfect for winter. It is so vampy and a great alternative to black.

Then we have 1941, a ruby red with burgundy undertones. This applied so well.

This next one is 1970, a dark burgundy purple. Amazing coverage with one coat.

Next up is 1971, a royal purple shade, which is dark enough that it almost appears black.

Then we have one of my favourites of the bunch, because it is a colour I've always wanted but haven't been able to find. This is 1973, a warm eggplant purple with redish undertones.
