Essie released two new glitter polishes part of their glitter polish line called Luxeffects!
I’m starting to enjoy adding a little glitter to my nails as a little accent. Essie Luxeffects polishes are great for that!
One thing to note: If you plan on using Essie Luxeffects just know that it takes a bit of time to remove. I suggest either using pure acetone to remove the glitter and follow up immediately by moisturizing your hands, nails and cuticles right after.
The acetone helps speed up the glitter removal process, but is also extremely drying and can weaken nails if you don’t re-hydrate your nails.
Here’s a simple and clean nail art design adding a little sparkle using Rock At The Top- Essie Luxeffects & a second look without any bling (I prefer the bling myself) 😉
Here’s what you’ll need to get these subtle trendy holiday nails.
Step 1: Start off with 2 coats of Mademoiselle by Essie. A super sheer pink, perfect for any classic french manicure!
Step 2: Using a thin striping brush paint vertical lines down each nail and 1 horizontal line across your index finger.
Step 3: If you want to stop there and not add any glitter, seal in your design with 1 coat of your favorite dry fast top coat.
Proceed to the next step to add bling…
Step 3: Add another stripe on both accent nails. One horizontal across the tip and one vertical on your index finger. Seal in your stripes with 1 coat of your favorite dry fast top coat. I used Seche Vite.
*Adding Bling – Step 4: Using the nail polish brush a dot of Rock at the Top by Essie in the center cross hair mark where both lines meet on each accent nail & VOILLA!
