Essie Stroke of Brilliance

Happy Tuesday!

Look how pretty! Essie Stroke of Brilliance over Essie Chinchilly, which is actually a pairing that Essie suggested on their promos for this new addition to the Luxeffects collection.  I got this along with A Cut Above, they're the perfect siblings!
I didn't do any cleanup on these because the power went out last night, and didn't come back on until 1 this afternoon.  Needless to say I was not a happy camper, and I was *this far* away from calling ComEd, and acting like the typical pissed off female. I thought it took them WAY to long to figure it out what the problem was, but that was just the hot,grumpy, sleep deprived Tess thinking, not the rational Tess thinking that the ComEd people are working as hard as they possibly can.  Thankfully I held myself back and whined to my brother about it when he got back from his camping trip.  :)
 This is 3 coats Chinchilly and 1 coat Stroke of Brilliance.  So pretty.  I've been on a glitter kick lately, and this is a perfect! I had no problems applying it, and it dried pretty quickly. 

Unfortunately for me, I'm on my first ever no buy.  My guy and I are planning on taking our first vacation together in December(granted I'm not active duty), and I need to start saving up. Which is sad, but I CAN NOT wait to go wherever we end up going together!

I hope you guys have a great day!


  1. Really lovely combination, I'm so excited they added Stroke of Brilliance to the Luxe Effects! May I ask where you found it? :)
