NOTD China Glaze Luxe and Lush over Side-Saddle

Hi everyone! So yesterday I really wanted to try out China Glaze Luxe and Lush from the Hunger Games collection and I wanted a nice base for underneath. I decided to go with China Glaze Side Saddle from the Rodeo Diva collection. Side Saddle is a gorgeous dark purple with gold shimmer color. It's very unique because in some light it looks more gold and other light it looks more purple. I didn't take pics of Side Saddle by itself but I will. Then I put one coat of Luxe and Lush on top. I was very surprised at how much I liked Luxe and Lush. The big flakies weren't as much trouble as I thought. I had to rearrange a couple of pieces but it didn't stick out from my nail as much as I thought. Here is one coat over two coats of Side Saddle:

So all in all, I like Luxe and Lush very much! Like I said, you have to rearrange some flakies as you're applying it because sometimes they will stick out over the nail but this isn't too bad. I want to see how this will look over greens, teals, and reds. As for Side Saddle, I found this at Sally's last year so I'm sure it's still available. The Rodeo Diva collection came out in 2008 but many of the colors are permanently available. What do you think of this combo? I haven't seen The Hunger Games, how were the nails in the movie? Anyway, Thanks for reading!


  1. Adore!!! There is just something about flakies! :)

  2. If you do see The Hunger Games, check out Effies nails, they always have something cool on them. At one point they did a red fade to gold gradient and at another they did a baby blue base with some gargantuan decorations on them lol she always had something on them!
