Shine of the Times

Isn’t it beautiful? I first heard about Essie’s “Shine of the Times” from Natalie’s blog, Makeup, Nails, and Fashion. It’s a ‘flakie’ that shines vividly in orange to yellow to green on dark polish, and is a little more pastel on lighter colors. For my first go, I wanted to try it out on black, so I whipped out American Apparel’s creamy black called, ‘Hassid‘ (pardon my sloppy bottle!). It looked so great and I’m so excited o try out more combinations.

How do you feel about ‘Shine of the Times’? Staple or not? Get it here.

Oh, it looks absolutely gorgeous! I love the combination, and it’s fantastic that the shade changes depending on what color you pair it with. Definitely need to try it!
