Zoya Julieanne under Essie Set In Stones

hi, guys! i'm so excited, my husband got me a new laptop because mine is down for the count and he's going to Japan for a couple weeks... now we can Skype! Skype is such an awesome invention :) also, i found the storage containers i've been looking for at Micheal's, tomorrow they will be 40% off plus 25% off the total purchase! i might buy all three they have... nine drawers will make organizing so much easier! i found this idea on The Daily Varnish, the specific post is Here. go visit these girls, they have an amazing bloggie!

today we have Zoya Julieanne topped with Essie Set In Stones. Julieanne is a gorgeous metallic purple, easy formula which is opaque in two coats! it's a gorgeous color... which flat refused to photograph true to color! i'm  SO frustrated... i probably took three hundred pictures and this is the closet i could get. >.<  it photographed completely blue in almost all the pictures! grrrrrr. SIS is another win from the Luxeffects collection! paired with Julieanne, the two combined make the manicure look like a midnight sky. SIS is a silver glitter which has large hexagonal and tiny round pieces in a clear base. took only one coat and i didn't put on topcoat, it was super sparkly all on its own! however, if i wasn't just swatching i would have added topcoat because it is very rough and scratchy.

two coats Julieanne, one coat Seche Vite. it does usually look a little warmer in person!

one coat SIS.

i think this manicure would be great to wear to a ball... somehow we always end up missing the Navy Ball... maybe this year will be the year! Ria :)


i'd love to hear from you guys! let me know if you have any questions or advice :)
