Essie Luxeffects: Shine of the Times

Don't you just love flakies?! When I first heard about this collection, I knew I had to pick up Shine of the Times. I missed out on the famous, Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure last year, so I knew this baby would be mine! ;) Here are a few swatches!

China Glaze: Wagon Trail - 2 Coats
Essie: Shine of the Times - 1 Coat
No TC



I literally took millions of photos of this nail polish. It's gorgeous all around and in all lighting. I'm not sure if this is an exact dupe to Andrea Fulerton's Gemstone, but it def. has a striking resemblance.

I purchased this at my local Walgrees for $8.00 ea. I picked all Shine of the Times to use for a possible Giveaway and to add to my blog sale. If you are interested in any, let me know! 

As always, hope this helps & happy shopping!

Do you own Shine of the Times? Will you be picking up any other colors from this collection? What are you're thoughts?! I'd love to know down below.

  3. It looks really similar to Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure or Nubar 2010 - and I on Nubar and love it. :) My obsession at the moment is glitters & effect polishes. :)

  23. I want this one so badly! They didn't have it at the salon where I get lots of polishes but said they'd order it for me. Except that was more than 2 weeks ago and it still hasn't come in… I'm getting impatient, haha!
