If there’s any time of year that you can get away with obnoxious glitter on your nails, then it’s definitely now. I don’t tend to use any when it’s not the festive period, so my nails are often constantly sparkling. I was lucky enough for my boyfriend to give me the You Beauty Advent Calendar for my birthday, and amazingly, one day brought me this stunning Essie polish! It’s safe to say, that it was almost immediately on my nails, because, let’s be honest it looks absolutely gorgeous.
Lots of Lux is described as a ‘shimmering lapis lazuli with a superfine matte finish’. I think the comparison to a gemstone is very apt here – it looks so interesting on the nails. It’s not a smooth finish, it definitely textured on the nails, but I think this is what makes it unique. It was very opaque, and although I did two coats, I probably could have got away with one. It is a nice formula, and stayed pretty chip free for a while.
So if you’re looking for a nice glamorous glitter this festive season, then definitely consider looking trying out Essie. What is your favourite glitter formula?
