Essie Urban Jungle & Julep Julie

Happy Friday everyone! Who's ready for the weekend? The BF and I are gonna go out to his parents' house on Saturday for ice skating and dinner. We tried the whole ice skating in NYC thing (at Bryant Park, not Rockefeller) but it was expensive and waaaaaay too crowded. Like I spent the entire time worrying about skating into someone or someone skating into me. Skating at a rink in the suburbs cheaper and less crowded, which makes for a much more pleasant experience.

For today's mani I started with a base of Essie Urban Jungle. I may have found one of my favorite polishes of all time. This color is perfection! Urban Jungle is described by Essie as an alabaster orchid. It is a lovely nude polish that looks off white in some lights and light pink in others. Two coats will get you to full opacity with no visible nail line, plus the formula is a dream to work with.

This is before adding the glitter (couldn't decide which one so I snapped this photo to ask a friend and she liked the pink). You can see how smooth and glossy Urban Jungle is!

On top of Urban Jungle I used Julep Julie, which is from their Birthstone Collection. It is a pink tourmaline multi-dimensional glitter. I love how it kinda looks like I dipped my nails in sugar!

I hope you all have a lovely weekend! See you on Monday :)
