Essie Nail Polish in Lot’s of Lux – Swatches and Review

For Father’s Day yesterday I wanted a nail polish that would go well with the top I was planning on wearing, and I also wanted something with a little bit of sparkle because I wanted my nails to have a little extra oomph to them. When I spotted Essie‘s Lot’s of Lux in the stash I received from my sister-in-law I knew right away that it was it! Let’s take a look at it…

Lot’s of Lux is described as a shimmering lapis lazuli with a superfine matte finish. This is also a textured polish, which I didn’t know and only realized after the first coat was dry. When I picked it up I thought this was just a glitter bomb and was ready to layer on the glossy topcoats to have a smooth and shiny finish, so at first I was taken aback by the textured finish. But in the end I absolutely LOVED it! AND, to add to the love, this is a ONE COATER! Isn’t it just absolutely gorgeous?!?
