Nubar Chiffon AND Essie Shine of the Times...

Originally, I was going to paint my nails with OPI's Color to Diner For for my Thanksgiving Mani, but I finally got my hands on Essie's Shine of the Times and knew right away I wanted to use it ASAP!  Looking through my stash, I decided on Nubar Chiffon for my solid base color.

Here is Chiffon alone..

Chiffon is a pretty brownish grey creme with lots of shine.  Pictured above is two coats.  I purchased Chiffon the same time I got Nubar 2010 on Amazon.  This color just kinda jumped out at me and I'm glad I decided to buy it.  It kinda reminds me of OPI's You don't know Jacques.

I've been waiting for  my supply store to finally have Essie's Luxeffects in stock.  I ordered Shine of the Times and As Gold as it gets.  Here is Shine of the Times over Chiffon:

Shine of the Times is beautiful!!  You really can't go wrong with a flakie!  Yes, it's pretty close to Nubar 2010, but I think the flakies in SOTT are more dense than 2010.  I love how this mani looks so different just if I tilt my hand in a different direction!  It's gorgeous and it's perfect for Thanksgiving!!

Do you have any from the Luxeffects collection?  Which is your favoirte?

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!


  1. Gorgeous!!! OMG those flakes!!! This is such an especially amazing combination! I have been waiting and waiting for my local supplies to get the Luxeffects too, urgh! I stopped in before the holiday and they saw me (again!) and were like, "Backordered." I hope they get them soon! *taps foot with impatience* :D

  2. I have the same one, I LOVE it. This one got me hooked on finding new and exciting polishes. It looks amazing under dark purple!!
