Essie A stroke of brilliance is my first Essie polish. It was sent to me by the Lovely Kaki from GlitterObsession. Essie are fairly dear so it's not a brand that I can run out and stock up on which is a shame because I really love this polish. It's an unusual glitter. It lies a bit flat and doesn't really sparkle in the sun at all. I like it a lot though! I have used this about 3 times already which is a lot for me. I like glitter but I rarely use it on a day to day basis. This makes an amazing accent nail too. This would need a fair load of coats to be opaque so you'll be better off just layering it :) It works with pretty much every polish anyway so it's a great little versatile glitter.
I have one coat over Catrice Sold out forever (new version). I wore this a while back with an accent nail and I loved the combination. The two blues just go really well together. A stroke of brilliance dries really quickly which is handy. I think this would look great teamed with a holographic polish but I don't have one so I can't test that out yet.
I wish essie were a bit cheaper. At the moment each one costs €13 in boots which is ridiculous. I know you can get them in TK Maxx but I only ever like one colour so it works out at the same price. A stroke of brilliance is pretty cool though so definitely check it out if ye get the chance.
Is there one brand you refuse to get because it is so overpriced?
