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?
