Believe it or not this is the first Essie Lux Effects polish I’ve tried! I don’t really have an explanation. In my mind it seemed a bit silly to pay Essie prices for a glitter top coat but when I saw Jazzy Jubilant it won me over (it’s seriously GORGEOUS in the bottle).
Jazzy Jubilant, along with Sparkle on Top, is a new addition to the Lux Effects line. Essie is repromoting the 4 original Lux Effects polishes along with two new additions.
I have to admit, I love Jazzy Jubilant! It has a mix of silver, teal, purple, red and green glitter of varying sizes suspended in a clear base. I used one coat over a black base (Cover Girl Black Diamond) and really loved the result. At first I was just going to do an accent nail but quickly changed my mind!
The formula is easy to work with. The glitter isn’t too dense or thick.
Perhaps I should give a few more of the Lux Effects polishes a try! If you have a favorite please leave a comment so I know which ones to check out 🙂
There are swatches under the jump! Including one outside (in the shade because the sun totally washes out the glitter….).
