Essie perk from Klout

 Once again Klout has provided me with another great perk for being an influencer. This time the perk was from Essie. Yay, I love nail polish, especially from Essie!
 The color I received  is called "stroke of brilliance" from their "luxeffects' line.. It's actually marketed as a multi dimensional top coat. In the bottle it looks like it's a heavily concentrated blue colored glitter. I fond that when I got it out of the bottle it blue with a hint of steel grey which I really love. When they say that it's multi dimensional they weren't kidding! I painted my nails a steel grey color and then I used two coats of my luxeffects over it and my nails were instantly transformed from flat to fantastically sparkley!! My only issue is that they say it's a top coat but because of all the great glitter it leaves your nails textured and I found that the glitter was getting caught on my shirt so I put on a regular clear coat over it and problem solved! If you're like me and you like all things glitter then you must check out this polish!

  1. Yeah the glitter is a little chunky and textured for my taste so it definitely needs a top coat.

  3. I like the shade but I'm not a big fan of glitter nail polish. They seem to take forever to remove. I also get the heebie jeebies when things with texture on them catch on my clothing..glad the top coat worked to fix that for ya!

    1. I think it would look good with other colors. I was actually thinking about doing a hot pink under it next time for a fun contrast.

  10. Thanks for the tip of using an actual top coat to take away the chunkiness. I'll do that for sure when I get mine.

    1. I got this for being an influencer in nail polish. It was a surprise perk, I logged in one day and I had a notification saying Essie was sending it to me.
