Essie Shine of the Times

Shine of the Times by Essie was the first flakie polish I ever saw.  I really wanted it, stalked it on eBay and couldn't find it.  Then I won it in a giveaway from LoveBeanGirl blog.

Here it is over W7 Blue Lagoon and a-england Camelot.

W7 Blue Lagoon is a deep indigo shade, I was wearing this very pairing back in May when I had the accident which led to my left hand being squashed and my middle finger getting broken.  The nurse commented on my nails when I turned up at A+E that they had no idea if my nail was bruised!  It was a real sod to try and get this off too with my finger hurting so much at the time!

Here it is now, no broken finger!

  3. OH MY GOSH! This is GORGEOUS!!!! I am wearing SOTT now (over a white shimmer, Duri Icicle), and I have worn it over a dark brown polish, but I have never see it over blue before. You have a great instinct for great color combos!

  4. P.S. love that last photo. It's so crisp and clear an image, and your mani is so perfect and neat, and your skin looks so pretty. How can your hands look so soft and great in the winter?
