Shine of the Times Bonanza

A little while back, Nory asked me to try out Essie Shine of the Times over Sally Hansen Violet Voltage.  I did her one better and decided to test drive this Essie flakie over a bunch of different color types.  

Each of these swatches is two coats of the base color and two coats of Shine of the Times.

Fright Night Claw Polish Phantom

  8. Well, Nort, it was truly my pleasure ;)

    And yes, it was actually your first guest post on my blog with Shine of the Times that pushed me to pick this beauty up.  It's a fun polish to play with and I'm happy you asked me to do this!

  9. Aw, thanks!  I was hoping the Phantom would pop a bit more.  I saw SotT over grey on another blog and absolutely adored it.  It kinda fell flat on me :(

  11. I love me some purples but I personally think that the Espresso won out for me in the end. It's the polish that I think made the flakie pop the most!

  14. Oh, I'm glad you liked the grey!  Like I said in an early comment response, I had hoped SotT would pop more on Phantom, but it makes me happy that you liked it!
