Luxe and Lush is a China Glaze top coat that contains iridescent flakes of varying sizes that reflect pink, green, and blue. This polish has a standard brush size and consistency. Unlike most glitter nail polish, Luxe and Lush is very easy to remove with 100% acetone. On its own, Luxe and Lush shows up very faint but adds a nice pop of colour when paired with another polish as the base and dries quickly.

Unlike most large glitter polishes, this polish goes on smooth and does not need an additional top coat to seal in any jagged edges of flakes. This top coat is very unique in that there aren’t many top coats with these types of glitter pieces. What I love about this topcoat is that you get a lot of glitter payoff on just the first coat. You don’t need to add a lot of coats to get enough glitter on the nail. Luxe and Lush by China Glaze is a great addition to any nail polish collection and if you are looking to add a bit of a pop to your base polish, this is perfect!

      This polish was from the 2012 “The Capitol Colours” collection, based on the Districts in the “Hunger Games” movie and books. As far as I know, it was a limited edition, so they weren’t produced beyond 2012 in conjunction with the movie. It’s easy to find on Amazon and eBay for $5-7-ish, but keep in mind that there is a good possibility that the polish is five years old, so it may be a bit thick and discolored. I just started using my third backup bottle, and that’s how it is now, I’ve only used this bottle once. It’s a beautiful polish, I use it as a topper over other colors, and in the middle to make a jelly sandwich. It’s great over black, pink, blue, white, I used it with purple and magenta to make jelly sandwiches, it never looks boring. It IS a pain to remove, however. Oh, and keep in mind that there are lots more dupes for this, many which are still being made. Color Club has a few that I can think of (okay, I have them, that’s why I could remember them!) and there are lots of indie brands that have a version of this.

        Hi Tiffanie! Thank you for sharing that. Thank goodness there are dupes for this one because it’s actually so versatile. I’m going to check out the Color Club dupes too
