Essie Luxeffects Nail Polish Swatches

I collected a few of these over time. Some are from the initial launch and a couple are from the newer, rereleased collection.

The swatches were applied as follows: one coat, two coats, over OPI Alpine Snow, over Sinful Colors Black on Black.

Pure Pearlfection:


A Cut Above:


Set in Stones:


As Gold as it Gets:


Sparkle on Top:


Shine of the Times:


A Stroke of Brilliance:




Overall, I quite like these top coats. Two coats work better than one, IMO. The only two I would pass on (if you were considering buying them) are Pure Pearlfection and As Gold As It Gets. These two are kinda wimpy on the glitter aspect. I find them to  be unremarkable. However, if you like the subtle effect of the shimmer, you might like them. Personally, for $8 I would expect more POW! to the shimmer effect.

Shine of the Times is a must -have. I own 5 bottles. Yes, I am obsessed. No, I there isn’t a 12 step program for my problem. :P
