Essie Luxeffects 2014 | Rock at the Top & Summit of Style

Happy 2015, blog fans! What better way to start a new blog-year than to start it off with not only polish, not only Essie polish, but a little more glitter?! Now that the holidays are over, collective glitter consumption will likely slow down a smidge, but there is always room for a little on nails. Essie has recently expanded their Luxeffects range with two new glitter toppers in the form of Rock at the Top and Summit of Style. Read on for a closer look!

Rock at the Top is a combo of medium, small and teeny gold glitter in a clear base. There is plenty of glitter, so you don't have to fish for any of the sizes nor do you get too much clear base in one go.

Summit of Style has the same glitter makeup as Rock at the Top, but instead of gold you get a gorgeous bronze shade.

Overall, you really can't go wrong with a little glitter, but polish fans are likely to have similar glitters in their collection already, as these aren't the most unique. I quite like them used on tips to add a quick bit of a glitter gradient, plus, it can refresh a polish that might have chipped prematurely. Glitter can cover a multitude of sins, you know. Glitter toppers- yay or nay? Tried these? Want to?
