Starting with a bang-Essie Shine of the Times 1

Hi, guys,

So I am relatively new to the polish world and hope I can add something to the world of nail polish blogging. :) I've been thinking about getting started for a while, but I was moved into action by this beauty:
Essie Shine of the Times
Here are a few preliminary shots of this topcoat over the mani I'm wearing now.
macro shot with some tipwear  

Revlon Midnight Affair with SotT. I felt the shaded shot showed the most diversity in the color of the flakes  
Indoor shot, holding the bottle
 And finally, from one of my favorite nail websites, Swatch and Learn, an image of Midnight Affair.

I pretty much agree with the review that Swatch and Learn did of the color It's beautiful in the bottle but a disappointment on the nail. Part of the reason I used it as a base is because I'm so unlikely to wear it on its own. 

That is all for now. I obviously have a lot to learn, especially when it comes to getting great pictures, but couldn't wait to share my new favorite polish. I'll post about it again tomorrow, and here's a preview

  1. Hey Cristina!

    YAY for starting a new blog! :) I'm looking forward to seeing more posts from you.

    This layering combination is so pretty on you. Flakies are some of the best polishes out there, aren't they? :)

    And thanks for linking back to Swatch And Learn! That was Fiona's post, back when she used to blog for Swatch And Learn. :) I'm sure that if she sees it now, she'll be thrilled you mentioned her post!

    P.S. I'm honoured to be your first Google Friend Connect follower. ;)
