I've got a nail of the day...errr, tomorrow, post to share. In other words, I just got done doing my nails for tomorrow using a rather recently purchased (end of October but is still in stores I believe) polish and wanted to share the combo I came up with.
I really don't purchase Essie polishes much any more - the polish has to be very unique and/or part of the LuxEffects line. I've a couple of reasons for not purchasing Essie polishes much. One, I don't have good luck with the application/formula of the creams; I don't even bother trying the shimmers since nearly all reviews show the shimmers as completely hidden. Two, I don't like the brush; I prefer the wider OPI brushes. And three, the price is too high for me to want to pay retail. I might purchase a shade at TJ Maxx but I haven't even done that in a long time.
So let's see what polish caught my eye enough to come home with me. I did not pay retail at Ulta - I purchased it in combination with another item utilizing a 20% off purchase coupon. As you can see above, my new polish came from the "Fringe Factor" LuxEffects collection for 2015. I don't typically wear bar glitters but hot pink plus black...yes please.

And here's my current nail look. I did go ahead and top coat these nails before pictures.
2012 Cast Away collection) in my stash that I haven't pulled out in ages. It's got a pretty pink shimmer running throughout the periwinkle base that does show up both in pictures and in real life. I had forgotten how pretty this shade was.
Just because I'm such a collector and really want the full LuxEffects collection, I might pick up the other 3 glitters...especially if I can score them on sale. Up until this 2015 release, I'm only missing 2 of the LuxEffects - Rock at the Top and Shine of the Times (discontinued).
Did you pick up any of the 2015 Essie LuxEffects glitter toppers? Do you like bar glitters or are they completely off limits? Do you try to "catch" all the polishes in a specific line that spans multiple years?
