Nail Friday!

Hello! I'm going to try to make Friday my nail day! Like I've said before, I haven't tried anything too crazy with my nails. However, I'm really enjoying doing the whole accent nail. I know I'm late to the party, but it usually takes me awhile to like something. Also, on a note, these pics were taken with my cell phone, so they're not the greatest. I'll try and make an effort to take better photos. ;)

Right now, I'm *really* loving Essie's lilacism. I have so many new colours to try but I keep coming back to this one! When I received my Julep Maven box with the glittery Brooke, I knew I wanted to pair the two! I painted all nails 2 coats of lilacism and two coats of Brooke on the accent nail. Here is the result:

My goodness, these colours are *so* pretty together! I am beyond thrilled with the Brooke colour. It's ultrafine glitter that catches a TON of light. The picture of the bottle really doesn't do it justice! I think tomorrow I'm going to switch it up and put Brooke on all the rest of my nails!

Also, the colour by Essie is so pretty. I can't get enough of it and the creamy texture. I found some matte topcoat that I absoloutely cannot wait to try with it!

I hope you have a great weekend! If you tried either of these colours, what do you think?
