Essie Luxeffects Collection

I had every intentions of splitting up the polishes into 5 different posts,
as I usually show one polish per post.
But after swatching them... I couldn't do it!
They deserve a "Collection" post,
and then as time goes by I can actually use them to accent my manicures.

All of these swatches are ONE COAT!
Albeit sometimes a thick coat... but ONE COAT nonetheless!
These were not hard to work with, and didn't have any problems with application.

PURE PEARLFECTION
Adds pink and teal shimmer onto the nail, this is on a clear base and looks better over a darker color.
I have another polish that also does this
(but the name escapes me at this moment)

A CUT ABOVE
A Rose gold hex glitter, in micro, small, medium, and large sizes on a clear base.

AS GOLD AS IT GETS
A gold flakie polish. I didn't expect to love this color, as I am more of a silver girl.
BUT it is stunning!
This is reminiscence of NYX Girls Gilded Glitter, but the base on As Gold As It gets is on a clear base. This was the complaint I had with the NYX polish

SET IN STONES
A silver hex glitter, in micro, small, medium, and large sizes on a clear base.

SHINE OF THE TIMES
This will likely be the star of this collection, and it is stunning!
It is the usual red to green flakie polish that we have been seeing in
Nubar 2010, and Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure.
But look at the color shift on black AND white! On white it shifts from pink to blue.

I hope you have enjoyed this collection, and you can current;y find it at http://www.aveyou.com/
Which is where I bought it!
