Tux Polish - Trio of Love

10 comments

Hiya guys! Did you know there is no such thing as only having a handful of chips? Especially if it happens to be Cool Ranch Doritos. Eating one opens like a black hole in your stomach and you must eat all the chips! And like chips, you can never have too much polish. Over the weekend I ended up getting my 8th helmer... Take that in for a second. Needless to say, I don't just talk the talk haha. Time to put my enabler hat on! Today I'm sharing swatches for the Trio of Love by Tux Polish, which consists of three holo beauties. Please note guys, my photos are taken indoors in a light-box hence the duller holographic finish. Now let's get to the swatches!


The Trio of Love by Tux Polish will be releasing on Saturday, February 4, 2017 at 9:00 AM Eastern. Each full-size 10mL bottle retails for $10.00 and the full set can be purchased for $28.50. This is a limited edition collection that will not be restocked once it's sold out.

First Love can be described as a silver holographic polish filled with micro glitter and holo flakies. I can never have too many silver holos in my collection, I thrive off them! Definitely perfect for accent nails and nail art.

The formula has an initial sheer application, but has great build-up. Very smooth consistency for layering, not too thick or thin. It dries to a slight gritty finish, but smooths down perfectly. Shown here in two coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.

Love Bug can be described as a dark purple holographic polish with pink glitter, shimmer, and flakies. Okay anyone else think about that Jones Brothers song "Love Bug"? Gah, I think my age is showing haha. Anyway I feel like this stunning shade falls into more blurple territory than straight purple. It's a very unique hue to me, I absolutely love it though. It also has a great shift under direct sunlight, damn my night time swatching life.

The formula has a very opaque application, almost a one coater. Depending on your application you can possibly get it down on one coat, but I tend to have a light hand. There are very minimal brush strokes visible in the finish, most of them blend out after topcoat. Shown here in two coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.

Deep In Love can be described as a deep teal blue jelly polish filled with blue and silver micro glitter and flakies. Definitely my pick as must have from this trio. It's so vivid and luscious! The glitter adds so much depth and dimension, while the jelly finish adds that squishy feel.

The formula has a great opacity for a jelly, builds up really easily. The consistency is a little on the thin side, but manageable and not runny. It dries to a gritty textured finish, but can be smoothed out with topcoat. I also experienced some minimal staining on removal, mostly on the cuticles. Shown here in two coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.

Overall this is another gorgeous collection from Tux. Not only are all the colors beautifully rich, but they are so well done formula wise. Also I have to say for a Valentine's collection it's refreshing to go the route of non-pink or red. Makes them the perfect lux polishes for year round date nights! You best believe I'll be rocking one (if not all three somehow) in a mani this weekend for my anniversary.

To recap, Trio of Love by Tux Polish will be releasing on Saturday, February 4, 2017 at 9:00 AM Eastern. Each full-size 10mL bottle retails for $10.00 and the full set can be purchased for $28.50.
