Essie Luxeffects Swatches

Imagine how thrilled I was when I came across these nail polishes at Walgreens. I believe there are 2 more polishes to this collection but I only picked these two...Ughhh yes I am resisting the temptation but I do feel kinda bad for not getting the rest. Oh well, gonna have to suck it up. I have hauled a ridiculous amount of polishes this month already and yes there is more to come. So expect more nail polish posts.

As Gold as It Gets is a sheer polish with little gold flakes.

Shine of the Times is a sheer topcoat with irridescent green and orange flakes. Excuse my camera for not doing this polish justice.

First thing that came to mind when I saw Shine of the Times is that it looked very similar to Nubar 2010.

However, there is a noticeable difference between the two. Shine of the Times has 3 times the amount of flakies than Nubar 2010. Shine of the Times also feels slightly thicker, whereas Nubar 2010 is a bit watery. On the left, I swatched Shine of the Times (1 coat) over OPI Ski Teal We Drop. On the right, I have one coat of Nubar 2010. See the difference in the amount of flakies?

On this swatch, I added another coat of Nubar 2010 and it still doesn't come close to one coat of Shine of the Times.

On this swatch I have 1 coat of Shine of the Times on the left, 3 coats of Nubar 2010 in the middle, and one coat of As Gold As It Gets.

I am very happy with these polishes. They are great top coats and can make any nail color stand out even more.
