NOTD - Simple Glitter Tips


Today's Nails of the Day features 2 new Essie polishes I recently received:

Lapiz of Luxury // Set in Stones (Luxeffects)

Lapiz of Luxury is the perfect Periwinkle blue! However the application was a wee bit challenging to work with. I'm not sure if my base coat had anything to do with it, but this applied like a jelly polish.. far from what I had expected it to be. Anyways, with that said I applied 2 even coats (allowed dry time in between) to achieve the opaqueness pictured above.

Set in Stone is apart of Essie's Luxeffects Multi Dimenison Top Coats and it is absolutely gorgeous! I applied  it directly to the top half of the nail. Initially I had plans to recreate an ombre glitter tip with the finer glitter gradually fading to the bottom half of the nail. Unfortuately, I forgot to place another polish in-between the two as a gradient to really meld the two polishes together. Phooey.

I suppose there is still a slight distinguishable ombre happening, so I guess I didn't fail too bad. Har har har, let me know what you guys think! :P


  1. I think it came out really pretty :-)

  2. That Essie's polish is gorgeous ! I was actually wondering between buying that and one other nail polish from that Luxeffects collection before. And yeah. Actually bought "Shine of the Times" instead :------) Still liking that "Set in Stones" though ♥
