Swatch: Essie - Shine of the Times (Luxe Effects Collection)

I'm so excited for today's post!  I think this is the polish I was most looking forward to from the holiday collections, and it doesn't disappoint.  It is Essie's Shine of the Times from the new Luxe Effects collection.  I found it at a local nail supply store that I don't usually frequent.  I just decided to stop in this past week, on a whim, and they had the Luxe Effects collection...kinda, lol.  They only had one of each polish, and they all had the names printed on one side instead of the usual sticker.  I'm thinking they might be samples...?  Anyway, doesn't matter, cuz now I have it in my hands!! :D

Shine of the Times is a gorgeous flakie that shows up primarily orange, but flashes green and yellow too.  I tried swatching it over a white base and a black base.  The white base was a fail, but the black base was full of win!  So happy with it!

1 coat of Shine of the Times over Orly Liquid Vinyl (top 2 fingers) and OPI Alpine Snow (bottom 2 fingers)

I am a big fan of flakies, and really love this one!  Definitely going to stop by my usual nail place and see if I can pick up a back up. :)
