Essie Set in Stones

Essie Set in Stones COVERIt’s hard for me to believe I didn’t pick up this polish until recently. Essie is repromoting Set in Stones as part of their LuxeEffects 2014 collection though it was originally released in 2011.

Set in Stones contains various sized silver glitter suspended in a clear base. It is the silver version of Summit of Style which is a new polish released with the LuxeEffects 2014 collection.

The formula is fantastic. The glitter doesn’t get clumpy and distributes evenly on the nail.

This is a really good basic silver glitter top coat. If you don’t have one in your collection I would highly recommend Set in Stones.

For my swatches under the jump I used Set in Stones over deborah lippmann You’ve Got a Friend.

The essie LuxeEffects 2014 collection can be found at Ulta. Make sure to check out the swatches under the jump!

  1. I have this particular glitter polish on my Need To Get list. I have so many silver glitters but they all have either various colored glitter throughout or are holographic or something. I didn’t realize until recently that I have neither a plain, simple gold or silver chunky glitter polish! Need to get on that, stat!

  2. I have this polish and love it. Silver glitter in a sequin version looks surprisingly grown up, and let’s be honest, it’s hard for glitter to look grown up, lol. I’ve never seen that particular Lippmann nude, it looks like it would also be great on its own and it really looks fab with the silver.

What do you think?
