New Nail Polishes: Essie Luxe Effects & Nails Inc Foil

I'm soo excited to write this post because if you've been reading my blog for a while I'm sure you will know my obsession with nail polish! I recently went into Boots to see they were having a triple points event when you spent over £30. I wasn't planning to buy anything but I went to the Essie stand and I saw they had the Luxe collection!! I've been waiting for these to come to the UK forever so I knew I had to get some! As it was 3 for 2 I picked up one more and I also got a Nails Inc polish.

Essie Luxe Effects 'Set in Stones' and 'A Cut Above'

I've been wanting these forever after seeing them in youtube videos from people in America as they were released in 2011 so when I saw these in boots I got my two favourites. They are both the same finish with the same glitter sizes but Set in Stones is silver and A Cut Above is a rosy pink. These are intended for a topcoat and I think they personally look better with one layer rather than built up. There is hexagon and circle glitter in different sizes which is very unique and I really really love these!

Essie 'Bahama Mama'

As it was 3 for 2, I decided to get this for free as it's a pretty Autumn colour which lots of people have been wearing lately and I don't have anything like this! I wasn't sure how much I would like it but I've worn it already with 'Set in Stones' over the top.

 Nails Inc Foil Effect 'Kings Road'
I saw these foil effect polishes in the Boots Christmas catalogue and instantly liked the look of this one. Despite usually not going for 'foil'/metallic polishes I just loved the shade and thought I'd treat myself as it's my first 'proper' Nails Inc. It's a champagne-y silver colour with pink undertones! I didn't like the formula that much but I think it's just because it has the foil finish which makes it quite streaky but the colour is lovely!

So, what do you think of my recent polish buys? What polishes have you been buying lately?
