MORE Essie Luxeffects Shine of the Times Swatches!

Happy Thanksgiving, girlies! I'm very thankful for my well being, family, friends, boyfriend, blessings, etc., but I'm also thankful for YOU! My readers mean a lot to me and I love reading comments. I'm thankful that I'm able to share my hobby with people...that actually care! Thanks so much.

Today I have more swatches of Essie Luxeffects Shine of the Times, which I've shown you before here. It's a great flakie, and I knew I would wear it today because the colors remind me of leaves! Red, gold, green...sounds very much like falling leaves to me! I love it. Here I layered it over OPI Suzi Loves Cowboys, which is a dark brown (but not black looking) jelly-creme. The swatches below show two coats of that and one coat of Essie Luxeffects SOTT, with topcoat, of course. Behold the beauty that is my Thanksgiving manicure: (I left the pictures HUGE, so click on them to see them super close up, it's amazing.)

Here's another shot in different lighting to show some color shift:

Here's a macro shot:

Sorry for the blur, this flakie freaks my camera out! I love it though, I'm pretty sure I'm going to layer it over everything! I hope you like it!

What do you think? Do you like this combo? Let me know! Happy Thanksgiving! Thanks for reading! :D
