As I continue on my love for China Glaze's Hunger Games collection, I decided to take the plunge while at Ulta and buy Luxe and Lush. I normally am not a fan of these kind of flakies at all, but the bottle just looked so pretty sitting there on the almost bare display - I couldn't help myself. I must say - as beautiful as it may be, the flakies were a pain in my butt to get to lay flat and situate. Alas, the end result was worth it indeed. Luxe and Lush represents the Capitol in the collection and I think it does a fine job indeed! I layered two coats over Maybelline Ultimate Wear's Cocoa Cream. I wanted to lend an earthy feel to this polish to go along with the rest of the collection. Enjoy!
Underneath the flakies I used Cocoa Cream. I really wanted to use an earthy color underneath and I was glad to finally use it in a mani! (It had been sitting untried for a long time now!) Cocoa Cream's name describes it oh so well! A smooth, chocolaty cream indeed! Great formula - two coats.
Have a fantastic day! -Dana
