Luxe and Lush is a flakie that flashes a bunch of colors including green, orange, gold, blue and pink depending on the shade you layer it over. This feels a bit different than the flakies we've been seeing lately, like the flakies are thicker and more glitter like. With most flakies after you layer them over your base polish the surface is still smooth but with Luxe and Lush it's got texture to it like you would have with glitter. I like that it seems more glitter like but it still flashes the way flakies do...best of both worlds! Formula wise, it's a little thick but since I'd never wear this on it's own it doesn't matter to me! The flakies do lay flat on the nail...in some of the photos it looks like they don't...but I promise, they do!
I have 1 coat of Luxe and Lush over each base polish below...all photos are in the shade! I'll have full normal swatches of all the base polishes up in the next couple of weeks!
