A Capital Pink Wednesday!

Hi all well it's officially the first Day of spring here , does somebody want to tell the weather this fact brrr it's still freezing cold here in the UK :),  And it's Wednesday already half way through the working week, and of course on Wednesdays we wear Pink. Because of the weather and the mid week lull I decided to choose a pink that brightens my mood on even the dullest day!

I love the warm feeling this colour gives me and it will probably be on my toes most of  the spring. This shade also has pink shimmer to it but I couldn't quite capture it! It took 3 coats to achieve opaque and was streaky on the first coat but evened out by the third.
I used:
Base: Salon System, Power basecoat.
Base colour: No17 last finish Spring Petal.
Top Coat: Seche Vite.

I also decided to added a bit of bling to my nails and because The Hunger Games is on general release this Friday and the lovely Jacqui from Scholarly Nails picked this out for me in a recent swap, I put a coat of China Glaze: Luxe and Lush over the top!

I absolutely loved how this turned out, I would describe Luxe and Lush as  a clear jelly-based polish packed with shards of glass flakies, they seem to reflect back the colour that is nearest to it or this could be just my imagination! , if so this must mean that it will look different with any polish you wear and this is a big plus in my books.

It was a bit tricky to apply easiest way is with a piece of sponge (ones used for foundation application) and dab it on them you will get good coverage. Every time the light caught this polish , I just stared at it and it looked like I had shards of glass stuck in my polish, then for reassurance I stroked it and because I applied two coats of topcoat it was smooth to the touch, I love the effect Luxe & Lush has on Spring Petal and can't wait to try on another colour!

Even the camera hogger loves these polishes together, I wonder what it would look like with a matte topcoat, we will have to wonder for now as I just love this combination!
