Lex Cosmetics Seattle Sunshine

Tonight I have another polish from Lex Cosmetics for you! Since I bought these with a Groupon I had, there was no way I could resist a polish named after my hometown, especially as one as on-the-nose as Seattle Sunshine.

The color story for Seattle Sunshine is this: "Seattle Sunshine was created by Seattle local Jamila. The light grey is a perfect match to the overcast sky for which the Emerald City is reknown." Seattle Sunshine is a nice medium grey with hints of blue-- a pretty accurate representation of most days in Seattle during the winter. This polish had great pigmentation, and was almost opaque in one coat (I used two coats in the pictures below). This isn't a groundbreaking color by any means, but it is a nice medium grey polish.

I would just like to point out that on the day that I swatched this, Seattle was having a nice day!  (Though not nice enough for me to get photos in the sun, unfortunately.) 

We're not clouds and grey and rain all the time!


  1. Haha, I like the story behind the name. Very pretty color!

    1. Yeah, in Seattle rain is often referred to as "liquid sunshine."
