EssenceItsTwoBrightEtosEffectNails008

A couple of days ago I was cleaning out my closet and found a box with old nail polishes. A bunch of sheer pinks and thickened frosts, but also this impressive little glitter polish (Effect Nails #008) from Etos (Dutch drugstore). The sheer blue base is filled with small and medium-sized prismatic hexes. SO pretty. For this mani I layered one coat over two coats of the blue side of Essence’s Colour³ nail polish called It’s Two Bright. I had a hard time capturing the glittery awesomesauce on the nail, but the bottle shot does show how beautiful the glitter looks in real life!

Regeneration – another mini, I gave up trying to hold the bottle for it. Very sheer orange with giant golden hex glitter and smaller silver, orange and golden glitter pieces. This is 3 coats.

I Think You Call Me… Sexy – this was another one I ended up really liking. A pretty cornflower blue jelly jam-packed with hex, iridescent, and multicolored glitter. This is 3 coats.

Event Horizon – LOVE AND NEED. This one was a favorite of mine. For one, Event Horizon is one of my all-time favorite movies. And two, this is such a dense gorgeous jelly! Blackened teal with multi colored glitter and holo glitter galore. This is 2 coats! I honestly didn’t want to give this one back to Amanda. ;-P

This polish does not photograph well but I think the next time I wear it I will thin it and layer it over another color. It’s not as oatmeal looking in reality and I like it but I don’t love it. The only reason I bought it was because it’s part of the Philadelphia collection. The other two from that collection are awesome!

Bubble Yummy is a strikingly beautiful semi-sheer purple base with a mixture of glitter… silver and purple fine glitter and bright blue hologram medium hex glitter. This polish combination is absolutely stunning on. It’s bright and very fun…it definitely attracts attention! It looks great over other colors (see the swatches up above) or alone with 2 to 3 coats of polish. This polish has a smooth finish after applying a top coat. Please apply a thick top coat to seal in the glitter and allow for a smooth finish! Happy Polishing!!! :0)

Peacocky

Peacocky is sure to be a hit with you guys! It is a multicolored jewel glitter topcoat with red, pink, gold, and blue glitter in it. For this swatch, I layered two coats of Peacocky over OPI Rumple’s Wiggin. It is a very dense glitter and a lot of fun! No application problems — it just went on smoothly for a bit of instant bling.

This polish is a beautiful sheer shimmery purple jelly base with green hex, blue micro, and lavender bar glitter. The color combination reminds me of one of my favorite gemstones, lepidolite.

Twenty Ten is small square red glitter, microfine and small blue hex glitter in a sheer black base. This color was one of my first ever made, it has had a few versions over the last couple of years and I am quite happy with this final one.

The base is a very sheer black so you will need 3 coats for a squishy look, or apply 1 coat over a black base color for a more solid dark black look.
