Product Sample: Complimentary nail polish samples were provided to me in exchange for this review.
I’m pretty sure it’s no secret how much I love beauty products. It shouldn’t be a surprise then that I jumped for joy when Lillian Eve Nail Polish offered to send me one of their LE Duo welcome boxes to try out! I always have more room in my heart (and in my house… kind of) for more nail polish. ;)
Their polishes are 5-free, free of animal products, are cruelty-free, and are made in the USA in Atlanta. Each batch of polish is made by hand, and their founder and creative director, Tiffany Barry, formulates each color herself.
The colors I received were Spring and Simple, a metallic silver-blue and Bijoux, a bright cobalt jelly. Bijoux is just the perfect shade for an accent nail, and I can’t wait to use this in my next pedicure. Spring and Simple is such a pretty color, I find it looks unique in different lighting – sometimes blue, sometimes silver, and sometimes a gray. I love multidimensional colors like that!
As with most polish, I found that two coats of the Spring and Simple was perfect, but I prefer Bijoux with three so it’s not as opaque. A base coat of white would probably help as well. The polish bottles are similar to Essie, but I found the thickness of the brush was unique and made polish application quick and easy. I noticed fewer issues than normal (as compared to Essie, OPI, and Julep) with getting an even coat, and found it was much less messy. (I didn’t even have to clean up my cuticles! Their brush is magical or something.) Each monthly box comes with two polishes and costs $12.99, which I think is a fair price considering they sell each polish individually for $12.

I’m only seeing three colors (a black, a white, and a grey) but there’s a coral-ish color on some of the pictures that I love. I wish I could find it!
(Also, liked on FB and I follow you on Insta and Pinterest)
I think they must be having a website problem this morning, as I know when I was looking previously they had quite a few other colors, like Ballet Slipper (http://lillianeve.com/shop/ballet-slipper/) and No Reflection (http://lillianeve.com/shop/no-reflection/). I will email them and let them know!
Ooh, I love both of those!
:) Their site is fixed so now all colors should be browsable!
I love the coral color. That’s awesome that it went on so easily
Thanks Abby! Good luck :)
I love all of the pastel colors! :)
Good luck, Ashley!

I am loving these colours big time, still trying to work on getting my nails done. Would have loved to enter this giveaway shame I am in the UK
Aw bummer! Wish it had been open internationally too, but nail polish has so many shipping restrictions unfortunately :(
Wow, sounds like a great nail polish option.
I love to find cruelty free products and by the sounds of it – Lillian loves the product as much as I love nail polish :)
It changes, but at the moment I’m loving nude shades or pinks.

These are stunning!! And I had never heard of Lillian Eve before. Not anymore, I’m not a fan of Essie, and these look like they would be soooooooo much better. I desperately need to try these! Definitely showing hubs my wish list for my bday or Christmas!
Thanks Becky, happy to introduce you to a new brand! :)
What a giveaway! And a great way to introduce me to LE! Imagine winning your entire wish list-hope their prepared to have inventory wiped out when I win! ;)
Haha, love it! Good luck, Dianne!
That cobalt jelly blue looks amazing! What a unique color for Springtime. And I am a fan of any polish that is paired with a helpful brush—most of my attempts come out looking like my niece painted them. (Sometimes I tell people she did!) I need all the help I can get!
Haha! I know what you mean – I have that problem with a lot of nail polish brushes as well. This one just went on so much easier, and not having to clean it up was quite the feat!
I love the Ballet Slippers color! I also follow you on facebook, instagram and pinterest :)
Thanks Meagan, and good luck! :)
Oh my… my “top” choice would be so hard to pick! Their greens/blues are absolutely beautiful and I’m obsessed! Dear Evelyn, Deep Breath, Mint Envy, Bliss and Emerald City are some of my favorites! I’d also love to try the hand creme!!
Thanks for entering Kendra, and good luck!
