For whatever reason, I’ve really been feeling and craving light, clean, and crisp manicures. I’m really on a white kick (still looking for a favorite white…suggestions please!) so decided to layer Luxe And Lush from the Hunger Games collection over the shimmering base of Break The Ice.
Break The Ice is a very shimmery, almost but not quite, pearl white. As I mentioned, I felt like wearing a white but also wanted to wear an untried polish, so I decided to layer Luxe and Lush over it. Luxe and Lush is an interesting flakie because it’s mostly gold and silver. I really like the metallic take on this flakie and love that it’s not too warm, like yellow. This manicure reminds me of snow, ice, and glaciers. It’s an interesting and really cool mix of shimmer, metallic, and neutral all in one.
Break The Ice has an easy application. I used three coats for the full coverage that I wanted; this polish layers well and could totally be worn with one, two, or three layers depending on the look you want to achieve. Luxe And Lush dispersed a decent amount of flakies per coat. I only used one coat for this manicure. The flakes also went on pretty evenly, none gathering at the tip or base on my nail. Both dried quickly and I had no formula issues with either.

How do you like this manicure? Do you think Luxe and Lush is any different from all the other flakies out there? Do you own either of these polishes? If so, what do you like to layer Luxe and Lush over?
