Shine of the Times

I've been really loving Essie nail polishes recently. They aren't available in Ireland (that I know of) so I buy mine online, the two below being my most recent purchases. Cocktail Bling is a pale grey/blue colour and Shine of the Times (another polish from the Lux Effects collection) is an opalescent top coat that can be layered over any colour you wish. I personally prefer to pair it with paler, pastel shades. I love Cocktail Bling worn alone, but I decided to try Shine of the Times over it and I thought it looked gorgeous!

  1. What an absolutely gorgeous combination. Too pretty! I love both the base coat and the iridescent top coat, beautifully captured in the photos :)

  2. Hi Emma! I love the sparkle that was added with the top coat. Essie is a brand of nail polish I have been seeing more often in blogs and magazines. I will have to see where it can be purchased here, I would hope at the drug stores. Your photos are so very sharp, it is as though I am right there seeing it with my own eyes. I hope you and Donnacha are having a good weekend. I plan on walking this morning, drawing and making chicken enchiladas for tonight. Sounds exciting, doesn't it? {;~D}

  3. Your nails look beautiful! I love the pale blue + sparkles. Essie has such great colors! They're a little too expensive for me, and I'm a little too indecisive. Maybe when I find a color I absolutely love and can't live without, I'll invest in one : )

  4. Hey sweetie! You have a very beautiful blog with a lot of inspiring posts! I'd like to invite you to be my friend and follow each other:)
