China Glaze- Luxe and Lush over Dress Me Up

I'm going through more of my Hunger Games collection polishes. Here I have two coats of China Glaze- Dress Me Up topped off with two coats of Luxe and Lush. I love this! Luxe and Lush is my favorite from the collection, and if I didn't have so many untrieds, I'd layer it over everything! Luxe and Lush is has flakies in a clear base, but the flakies aren't your typical ones- they're more like shards to give a shredded look. My only complaint about this would be that some of the mylar flakes stick up and can get caught on things, causing the polish to chip (see ring finger). This can be avoided by using a toothpick or other small object to embed these into the polish while it's still tacky.
Here is Dress Me Up before I added Luxe and Lush. It's a dusty rose creme. It's very neutral and work-safe. This is another one of those shades that can pretty much go with anything. I didn't think it would be one of my go-to colors, but I actually really like the way it looks on my skin tone.

I got a small nail mail package from Traci from The Trace Face Philes after ordering from her blog sale. She still has plenty of polishes available, so check it out!
I ordered Sally Hansen- Multi-Faceted, OPI- Call My Cell-ery, ORLY- Sky Blue-Pink, and Joe Fresh- Mallard
