Today's mani is 2 of the China Glaze Capitol Colors polishes. I knew I had to get Agro, if only for the name. I love green polishes and being a gamer, I use the term Aggro a LOT. I made the mistake of putting this on without decent lighting while I was the only one awake & watching The Walking Dead.
It's easily a one coater, but I had to use two. I really like the color on this. It's an olive-y, metallic-y, almost gold shimmery green.
So pretty. Makes me think of a moss green.
Then I decided to add Luxe and Lush. This was a bit of a pain to work with. I brushed 1 coat on, then had to kinda tap a 2nd one on. Then, instead of putting a coat of Gelous, I went with 2 coats of SH Insta-Dri.
Now, my pictures looked MUCH better than this mani did in person. You can see where some of the flakes blobbed on my index finger. I also noticed that to the naked eye, the flakes looked more like glass shards and less like duochrome pieces of mylar.
I know some people love L&L, but not me. I prefer something that looks the same in person as it does in pics.
