Customer Reviews

The polish looks NOTHING like the picture depicted.

The glitter is large, does not cover evenly but clumps on the nail giving the appearance of something stuck to your nail like you did not wash your hands.
Marty
This is a polish that adds a very subtle gold shimmer.

I purchased 3 different colors of Essie luxeffects. The first I will review is "As gold as it gets". This polish leaves a very subtle gold sheen alone or over your favorite color polish. I really like it. I was worried that it might be too sparkly but that is not the case. I can wear this all year round, not just at the holidays? My personal favorite of the luxeffects. 5 stars

Second color is "shine of the times". This is also a subtle sheen but has some pinkish red highlights depending on the way the light hits it. I like this one as well. 5 stars

Third color is "a cut above" this one is essentiallya bottle full of large pieces of pink glitter suspended in clear polish. The glitter is large, does not cover evenly but clumps on the nail giving the appearance of something stuck to your nail like you did not wash your hands. The glitter is rough and catches on clothing, you must apply generous top coats to prevent ruining fabrics. 1 star

I absolutely love this nail color! I'm a big fan of Essie products and this Polish goes great with any Essie or non-Essie Polish. Its not overpowering as it may appear from the bottle, it simply adds some gold flecks on top of your favorite colors. I personally recommend it on darker colors because the gold stands out a bit more, although it really depends on the look your going for.

Also, its very smooth considering its a "glitter" polish, even without a top coat.

And considering its about $3 and $6 with shipping, its a deal!

Great quality and I love the gold fleck. It is not large nor small but has a good variety. Has a subtle gold-glitter, especially beautiful when hit by sunlight!

I really like to put this on some of my reds for Christmas time. I bought this one and it is a quality nail polish by Essie. The best part is that it is not a struggle to take off either.

Simply lovely, looks very elegant when used as a top coat...on any color. Can be used as it's own color but that takes quite a few coats. It dries quickly and flows onto the nail. The gold specks look incredible. Very satisfied.

By Seamused on July 25, 2014
This nail polish is a nice color, with gold glitter mixed into the clear polish. As other reviewers have stated, you must apply more than one coat (a few) to achieve the color as it appears in the bottle. But, the polish looks nice with one or two coats for a less dramatic effect. And that aspect is not true for all polishes that require more than one coat, so that's definitely a good thing.
The nail polish itself does not stay on the nails for a long time without chipping. I found sometimes after a couple of days, it would chip. You could use a top coat of a different brand to help with this. Also, there is little smell from the polishes from this brand (that chemical smell).

There is nothing wrong with the quality of the product I am simply giving this rating due to the fact that the color of this nail polish when applied is nowhere close to what shows online. Even aplying it 3 times it is not nearly as bold of a color as what shows in the picture. It is a very weak color and does not stand out the way expected.
