A Stroke of Brilliance
While cruising the aisles at Wags the other day, I happened across the essie display which has now replaced Shine of the Times with Stroke of Brilliance in the luxeffects line. I had seen this one on-line already and thought it was a very pretty polish with lots of potential so, I picked it up. For this very simple mani, I painted on black and white for the base and sponged Stroke of Brilliance on the tips. The consistency of the polish is great and the glitter is pretty flat, I just used NYC for the topcoat; it is a bit bumpy but not bad, I suspect a coat of Seche would leave you with a perfectly smooth finish. While I am disappointed to see the discontinuation of Shine of the Times, I am pleased with the addition of this one!
