Now, just be aware, these pictures do NOT capture the awesomeness that is in the actual bottle.
|Do you see all of that colorful, flakie goodness at the bottom of the bottle!?|
So after that nail salon ordeal my mom and I went to Walgreens. While she was picking up a pack of pictures I did what any nail polish obsessed blogger would do...I walked over to the beauty section to check out any new polishes, collections, displays, etc. And to my surprise, sitting on the bottom shelf next to a Sinful Colors display and another Essie display was an Essie collection that I had not seen advertised! It was some sort of Yoga collection. It was only a four color display, which I later realized was the smaller of two displays for this particular collection. The actual collection has six different colors. Anyways, only one caught my eye, and that was Boxer Shorts which is sort of a periwinkle color. It's a nice blue-purple.
The next thing I saw also took me by surprise! Before finding the Yoga collection I had just glanced over the other displays and saw that the Essie Luxeffects display was still out-and looked pretty full. But I had already bought two colors from it a while back.. but when I took a better look at it, I saw the display said "New Shade" (or "New Color", I can't remember which). And sure enough, sitting next to the other original Luxeffects colors was a gorgeous chunky purple glitter named Stroke of Brilliance. Of course I couldn't pass it up! So I'm guessing Essie put out a new display with all the colors again to display the newest one. I don't know exactly how long Stroke of Brilliance has been out, but I could very well be the last to know. Haha. I'm usually late on these things.
|Isn't it soo pretty?|
So there you have it! My mini haul.
Have y'all been holding out on me this whole time about that new Luxeffects color?? Haha. Do y'all own Merry Midnight? Give me your thoughts! Hope y'all enjoyed! Tomorrow I'm going to have a post about my updated polish collection and my favorite top coat!
