It was love at first sight when I found out about these new Essie glitter top coat polishes while I was down in Ohio for the holidays. I thought they were only available in the US for the time being but during a recent Walmart trip I was able to pick up the rest of the collection because it is THAT good!
You may know from my past nail posts that I love adding glitter and interesting top coats to my nails and so you could imagine the feeling I had when I saw that Essie came out with a collection to help you do just that! This collection includes five sparkly top coats ranging from ones containing chunky hexagonal flecks to tiny shimmering specks. I've read that Essie hasn't done something like this before since they're mainly known for their pinks and nudes so this is quite a change for them and definitely expands their audience.
As Gold As It Gets: Iridescent sparkly gold shimmer flecks
Shine Of The Times: Iridescent hologram flaky shimmer
A Cut Above: Pink chunky flecks
Pure Pearlfection: Iridescent pale white shimmer
Set In Stones: Silver chunky flecks

They can transform any nail polish from drab to fab! lol The soft iridescent shimmer top coats are great for a pretty subtle effect while the chunkier top coats add that bigger dazzle effect. Be sure to shake up the bottles well as they tend to apply thick. In the picture above I applied only one coat of the chunkier flecked nail polishes, while the others have two coats. It's so hard to pick a favourite because they all have something great to offer!
I can't wait to use these for upcoming NOTD posts since I know the colour combinations are endless!
Hugs, Kisses and Lots of Glitter!
