Nail of the day #10 - Essie's sparkly nails

You all know I love nail polish and nail of the day posts. Hopefully you like them too. I think they're really fun and helpful because it's always nice to see how a nail polish looks on someone's nails before purchasing it if you're not sure that you're gonna like the color, consistency...

Today's post features two Essie nail polishes: the base color is "Bobbing for baubles" from the 2011 Winter Collection which is a dark navy blue; and on top of that I used "Pure Pearlfection" from the 2011 Luxeffects Collection.

I did two coats of the first (base) nail polish and just one coat of sparkles.

Please excuse the messiness of my nails, I kind of took the pictures in a rush and it looks weird. Anyway, I love the effect of this glitter nail polish because it's very fine glitter instead of chunky and it gets the color of the nail polish; meaning that if you use it on top of a pink nail polish, the glitter will have pink tones.
