Essie Luxeffects Shine Of The Times comparison with Nubar 2010 and Inglot 202

This is a follow-up post on my Essie Luxeffects haul here. Doing a little comparison with two other similar flakies polishes that I have in my stash currently: nubar 2010 and inglot 202.

This is just one coat of Essie Luxeffects Shine Of The Times. It is just so dense and beautiful, won't you agree?

Comparison with Nubar 2010

One coat of Nubar 2010 doesn't produce as much flakies as one coat of essie Shine Of The Times.

At two coats, it is looking slightly better but I say no prize for guessing which one is a winner here.

Comparison with Inglot 202

Almost similar there. The density is on par with Shine Of The Times.

If I were to rank them, Shine Of The Times would win hands down, followed by Inglot 202 and lastly Nubar 2010

Nubar 2010 vs Inglot 202, 203, 205 flakies polishes

Just a mini comparison between nubar 2010 and the Inglot flakies.

Inglot 202, 203 and 205

This is a light swatch of each polish over Illamasqua Force. At one coat each for the Inglot, you can see that the flakes are much denser in comparison to nubar 2010.

Inglot 202 swatches

When I knew that Sophia of the make-up blogette would be visiting Inglot while vacationing in Las Vegas, I decided not to give her a list of eyeshadows to CP (too many!), but a list of polishes instead. I had come across swatches of these flakies polishes while browsing some other blogs and thought that it would be a great opportunity to get my hands on them. And so, I unabashedly put these on my CP list and Sophia was ever so kind to get them for me (THANK YOU AGAIN!).

These are from the Dream Collection (as per Inglot USA website). They are tiny 8ml bottles and cost USD10 each. A bit pricey for the amount, but worth it if you are a flakies lover. I got them in #202, #203 and #205, and I finally got around to swatching them.

I took so many pictures of each polish that I think I will be posting most of them on my blog. If not, it would be just a waste. Haha! So I'm sorry for the photo spam, a lot might look the same after a while, but I just love the way they look.

The iridescence of the flakes in the light:

I swatched all the flake polishes over a black base so that the colours would look more vibrant and pop out.

This is #202. I think it's my favourite. It predominantly flashes orange, gold and green, kinda like Nubar 2010 which you can see here, but the flakes are much denser and look bigger too.

Enjoy the swatches!

Over another base, an army green from Holika Holika.

Tell me what you think! :)
