Wet N' Wild Blazed Swatches with Essie Shine of the Times

     I was in the mood for a summery color so I grabbed Blazed out of my untried pile.  I really liked the out come of it.  It did take 3 coats for full opacity but Wet N' Wild is a quicker drying polish.  I picked up Essies Shine of the Times in the same haul and I have been dying to try it.  It reminds me of the Finger Paints flakie collection.  In the bottle it has SO many colors.  Green, blue, purple, orange, and red.  I LOVE it.  I wish I could have seen more of the blue, purple, and green over the Blazed, unfortunately the red and orange were the only ones that really showed.  At certain angles I did get some of the green, that is why there are so many pictures.  I am trying to show all the wonder that is this mani.  Some of the pictures are larger than I normally post because I really wanted you to see the different color with the Shine of the Times but my camera did not do this mani ANY justice.
