China Glaze Riveting & Luxe and Lush from the "Capitol Colours" collection

I don't know about you but ever since I saw the first China Glaze Capitol Colours promo pics, I've been really excited to see them in real life.
Today I have 2 of them for review, Riveting and Luxe and Lush.


Riveting is a very bold orange packed with orange and gold flat shimmer flecks. It's very bright and saturated, like blazzing fire on the nails. Formula was amazing too : very smooth, even and pigmented on the fisrt coat, perfect on the second. It wasn't one of my firt picks from the collection but definitely a win.







Luxe and Lush is a very unsual flakie topcoat. Not your typical flakies but more a mix of flat, irregularly shaped, mylar flakes like the ones you can buy loose for nail art. It sparkles blue, purple, pink, gold, green... Very versatile. Over Riveting, it mainly flashes gold and over China Glaze Pelican Grey it almost reveals its entire spectrum. Formula was a bit goopy but very manageable.








China Glaze® Capitol Colours will be available in early March 2012 atsalons and specialty beauty retailers including Sally Beauty Supply and ULTA stores, coinciding with the release of THE HUNGER GAMES in theatres March 23,2012.  Individual shades retail for $7.  The collection will be available in a 12-piece counter display as well as open stock colors.

  20. I got into bright true orange (not Halloween orange)after some pales right after Xmas colors. I am crazy for these great oranges coming out. Riviting will be on my must have list. Love the fire inside it. Also adore this new topper. Cannot wait for this collection to hit Sally's. Hopefully we will get them in before the end of March in my area that tends to be really slow, only getting shipments ever 2 weeks.

  24. Riveting looks amazing and I love how Luxe and Lush looks over both polishes. I actually have a friend who is going to pick up the whole collection for me at CosmoProf and I can't wait to get them! There are so many colors that aren't your usual shades. China Glaze really knocked it out of the park with this one in my opinion.

  26. Could someone pretty please tell me how to make Luxe and Lush "manageable" ?? I purchased it yesterday, came home SO excited to try it, and was very disappointed in how the formula turned out on my nails. Very chunky, uneven, and frustrating ):

  28. @ KalenMichele,
    YES! I have had the same problems with it. It was so super gloopy and started drying on the wand in big clumps as I was doing my 2nd hand. I have been wondering if i'd just gotten a bad bottle or if others were having similar problems. Has anyone else experienced this?............
