Essie: Lapis of Luxury & Zoya: Maisie

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.

Dusty periwinkle blue with blue flakies

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.

Easy smooth application on both

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.

What’s your favorite way to layer? Do you like this combination? Do you like to coordinate layering flakies with a matching base? Or do you like to mix and match?

    I hardly ever wear blues, but Lapis of Luxury is one of the 3 that I own, and it’s definitely my favorite! It definitely is one of my faves to wear in spring/summer – it’s just so pretty. I love the layering combo you did here!

  2. Thats stunning! I think I’d be walking into walls admiring my nails. It looks like a really clean swimming pool – just after someones jumped in. Such a summer colour!
