Blue Nails: Essie - Lots of Lux

Hey there guys!! Happy Friday!! You know I love blue polish. I really thought I could say no to this, but haha as my life goes I failed and I bought it. The hint of purple in the light made me unable to say no. But yeah no regrets this polish is so stunning.

Now I've always loved textures but this one is special. Lots of Lux is a sparkly blue texture with gold, green, purple, hint of red and blue shimmer. The shimmer is incredible but unfortunately not as prominent as I'd like it. I'd also like if the polish was less dull and more bright. But you can't have everything and this is already mad pretty so I really can't ask for much more. And this is even more amazing with topcoat, I have the polish with topcoat with nail art which I'll show soon. The blue shimmer just pops and the blue is a lil darker (yet brighter) and looks incredible.

Lots of Lux came from last year's Winter Holiday collection, um Encrusted Treasures. I didn't like the name of the collection, and most of the polishes in that collection were misses for me. Especially the gross black texture, that's not how you do a textured polish. But really those polishes weren't so nice. This was a winner though, at least the collection had a redeeming factor. 

I used 2 coats, but legit 1 thick coat and you would've been sorted. This polish is so opaque!! I just wanted more sparkles and my coats weren't particularly thick. The Essie brush was also so perfect for my nails, I agree with this. But really, perfect formula here. There was also no staining issues. The below picture is probably the best depiction of how great this polish is and even then it's not getting it all. 

Thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day!! :)
