Essence Special Effect Nail Topper: Night in Vegas

I Bought This


I have so many wonderful Essence top coats to share with you all!  Their line of Special Effect Nail Toppers are a fun way to add some flair to your existing nail polish wardrobe.  The first topper I tried way back when was Night in Vegas.

Essence Cosmetics Night in Vegas
Night in Vegas is an iridescent flake top coat consisting of flakes suspended in a thick clear jelly base.  These flakes flash from gold, to copper, to green depending on the way the light hits your nails.

Here is where this top coat comes to life.  Here is one coat over Wet 'n' Wild Ebony Hates Chris.  When used over a dark base this top coat shows it's inner fire.

Final Thoughts

Night in Vegas is simple, yet stunning.  I've used this with a few simple tape manis and over the tips of a french manicure and it does a great job of adding visual interest to you nails.  The formula is thick and can be a little tricky to work with.  The key is to apply a thin coat over your base color.  You don't need to hunt for flakes or apply multiple coats.  One thin coat will give you great coverage and tons of flakes.  Occasionally if I am tough on my nails, I get some chips around the tips, but nothing consistent. So far I'm up to 6-7 Essence top coats and I love every one.
