LCN Fall 2012 Urban Expression Collection Swatches

Hi guys! Hope you all had a great weekend! Today I have LCN's Fall 2012 Collection called Urban Expression to share with you. I've tried a few of LCN's magnetic polishes in the past but this is my first time trying any of their regular polishes. The Urban Expression Collection is 4 creme polishes that are great basics for any collection, check out the swatches after the jump!

London Beat is a taupe with grey undertones. The formula was really nice, a little thick but the kind of thick that I look for in a creme polish. I used 2 coats for the photos below.


New York Glam is a dark grey with strong green undertones. I feel like we saw this a lot for fall but all of the similar shades leaned more towards grey on my skin tone. On me this was much more noticeably green, I really love this's what I wanted all the others to look like! The formula was great again, I used 2 coats for the photos below.


Paris Chic is a beige nude with yellow undertones. This is a bit too yellow toned for my skin tone but I think it will be a great nude for a lot of other people! The formula was again, pretty great! I used 2 coats for the photos below.


Tokyo Expression is a dark grey creme. I really like how smokey this grey is, this is my favorite kind of grey! The formula was my favorite of the 4, it was nearly a 1 coater for me. I only needed a second coat on a couple nails!

Overall I think this collection is great for classic shades, if you are looking for basics with good formulas I would recommend these.

I do think the price is a little steep, the bottles are pretty small (8ml) and retail for $7.50 each or $29.90 if you buy the quad with all 4 shades.

LCN can be purchased on their official website here.

  1. ohmygosh, I saw Paris Chic in the top photo and literally gasped-out-loud! It's such an ugly color, but in a warm and cozy kind of way, lol. The price though... I don't think my wallet would let me buy it :/

  2. These unfortunately aren't my favorite colors. I love a good nude or grey, but these just aren't doing anything for me. Nice swatches as always though! :)

  3. I like London Beat. What would you recommend as far as another brand with a similar shade at a better price?

  5. I really NEED some LCN polishes in my stash soon...I can just tell they make my kind of's a classic looking polish line every time I see it...I read where it's the third biggest polish manufacture - know it's really popular in Europe - seems just to be filtering in to the USA...have to look on line (again) to see where to purchase it and hope it's not too expensive or with high shipping.

  6. The nudes don't do it for me, but the smokey grey and the green/grey sure do! They are knockouts on you! They remind me of some Zoyas, but these colors are richer, somehow.

    Thanks for the swatches. I'd never hard of this brand before.

  7. Love those nude creamy colors!
