A Stroke of Brilliance Over the Edge

11 Aug

Hello my nail polish lovers! Today I have a little mani that was inspired by an Essie ad in I think Glamour magazine from this month. They had a little tear out page that had all their luxeffects and about 5 colors that would look best with each glitter. Luckily I had at least one color that they had listed for each glitter πŸ™‚ So I decided to use Essie’s new Stroke of Brilliance, a gorg blue glitter. For Stroke of Brilliance they had Chinchilly, Lapiz of Luxury, and Over the Edge (which is what I used because it was in my untried pile πŸ™‚ ).

Here’s the ad- the bottles are little stickers with the names on the back, however, if you follow me on IG then you know I have been finding them stuck to my feet since tearing it out of the magazine (that’s why there’s a couple missing lol).

What do you think?!


Thanks for reading!

    I am so glad I found this!! I can’t wait to try some of these out. I wish I could see the names of all the Essie colors they recommend tho since i am bad at figuring out which is which. I really like your blog and I was wondering if you would have any interested in joining a beauty blog hop I created just for wordpress users. You can find more information about it here:

      Ah! I’m so sorry but I have already thrown it away 😦 I do remember though I didn’t have all the exact polishes, but I had similiar Essie colors in my stash. Again, I’m so sorry 😦
