Essie Lux Effects

Hey everyone. Can you believe it's Christmas this time next week?! So happy!

Just wanted to do a quick post to tell you about a great nail polish I bought on Friday. As the title suggests it's called Lux Effects by Essie. I bought it in the shade "As Gold As It Gets".

It's a gorgeous fine glitter/shimmery nail polish.
As I was wearing purple and gold on Friday night I wanted to have purple and gold nails! I'm a bit disappointed my photos aren't that great though. The lighting in my house is awful!

I used two coats of No7 Stay Perfect in Vivid Violet with two coats of the Essie polish on top. In real life it looks like there is a gold layer spray painted on top of the purple. It doesn't look very glittery on the nail and it leaves a very smooth finish.

I had initially been looking for a cheap Barry M gold glitter polish or something but didn't manage to get one but I'm glad I splurged on this polish as it's really different to any other polish I own. Love it!

Thanks for reading,



  1. I really want to try Essie nail polish! :)

  2. @What Larry Loves - I only have two but they are great. They are often on sale on ASOS so maybe take a look after Christmas as I'm sure they will be reduced! x

  3. @Been There, Done That, Got The Lipstick - thanks for your comment, it is lovely! :) x
