In the mail today came my 5 new Essie Luxeffects Collection! Yay!! I really just wanted the Shine of the Times that's in this collection and I couldn't find it at WalMart so I just bought the whole collection. Glad I did too. Love every single color.
|The colors in this collection from left to right are: Set in Stones, A Cut Above, Pure Pearlfection, As Gold as it Gets, and Shine of the Times|
I will be explaining each and what I think of them in my Other Polishes page.
It was great timing when these colors came because I had a blank canvas today and was looking for something fun to do to my nails! For the base color, I ended up with my new colors from the Summer Flutter Collection called Flit a Bit. It's a super bright orange, no shimmer. Like most of the oranges that I have, this color goes on very streaky. I don't know what it is about orange, or maybe it's their formula, but it's always streaky when I use them. Hmm.. After one coat, it's pretty thick, yet streaky, and you may need about 2-3 coats to get the streaks out of it.
I knew I was going to cover up my nails with something cool so I decided two coats was enough for me. You really can't tell. Using the image plate from Bundle Monster (BM-209) I did a funky, squiggly (for lack of better terms) design in Diva of Geneva from the Swiss Collection. I really love this color for stamping. Over the top of the whole design, I put a coat of Pure Pearlfection from Essie over the top.
