Way-Cool Mani Wednesday: Blue Crushin SOTT

Do you have a favorite glitter/effect topper? This was a question I saw asked around in some nail related FB groups recently. I do have a favorite effect topper, and it's Essie Shine of the Times, a beautiful iridescent flakie. This polish has never seen the walls of my Helmer. Well, I have a back up bottle that rests there, but my original bottle is always out on my desk where I paint my nails.

Shine of the Times is my go-to layering polish when I want to add something special to a mani. The flakie looks different dependent on what type of color you layer it over. It's magical, and it looks great on everything. 

Here is an awesome combination a did recently with Shine of the Times. 

Polishes Used:  Sinful Colors Blue Crushin and Essie Shine of the Times

Happy Wednesday! 


  1. Shine of the Times looks gorgeous over that blue. I don't think we can get Sinful Colors here in Canada. Is Shine of the Times still available?

  2. I love flakies so this one is so nice! Love the combination you did here.

  3. This is flipping GORGEOUS.

  4. Flakies are my favorite, although I don't have this one. Those colors look like they were made for each other though!

  5. I really wished Essie had made Shine of the Times permanent. :(
