I had a different intent for Lapis of Luxury when I first applied it. I’ve had this polish for years and don’t think I’ve used it enough. We all know I love any blue polish and this one is great. And with blue flakies on top, it’s a winning combination.
Lapis of Luxury is a pretty color on its own. It’s rather unique and interesting in my collection of blues. It’s a slightly dusty, periwinkle blue. It has a touch of purple in it to keep it more in the cornmeal realm of colors, to me. It’s very flattering and easy to wear. Layered with the blue flakies of Maisie, it looks awesome. The two complement each other and are really fun together.
Lapis of Luxury has an outstanding formula. It’s a half jelly / half creme hybrid formula, which is my favorite to use. It went on smooth as butter. It almost applied itself. Though I did need three coats. As for Maisie, I didn’t want the flakies to be too overbearing, so I did one thin coat and it ended up just as I wanted. I think this manicure looks great and it has been a great combination to admire.
