It has been SO hard to wait to share these pics with you. I already did a nail post yesterday when I did these swatches, so I didn't want to spam you with more... but DAMN do I love this polish...

I literally could not stop taking pictures of the Essie Shine of the Times Luxeffects Nail Polish from the Essie Holiday 2011 Collection. Take a look at these pics, then we can talk. All (except bottle pics) were taken outdoors with no flash. It was a little overcast. All of the flash photos drowned out the gorgeousness of the polish, so I just included several from outside.


Essie Shine of the Times over Essie Power Clutch


Essie Shine of the Times over Essie Very Structured

I think it's safe to say this is one of my favorite polishes. The combo with Power Clutch is my FAVE. It just turned out so unbelievable... I hate to gush so much... but wow. And Very Structured paired up with Shine of the Times looks like the leaves changing in the middle of a fire!


Shine of the Times is joining many awesome flakies, especially lately. I like Shine of the Times even better than similar products from Sally Hansen and Finger Paints. The flakie consistency just feels and looks thicker and lays better.

I read through the comments on Scrangie's blog and it was stated the Luxeffects are a permanent addition! YAY!

Essie Luxeffects Nail Polishes retail for $8.00 each and can be found at Ulta and at drugstores.

What do you think of this collection?
