i am wearing: “wrapped in rubies” by essie and gold glitter by milani.

today i bought “wrapped in rubies” by essie and after putting it on, i realized it is almost identical to “iconic” by cult nails and very similar to “milan” by nailtiques. it definitely looks different in the bottle than it does on (see top pic), but i still like it. i also bought this gold glitter today. i usually use deborah lipmann’s “boom boom pow” but it has gold flakes in it in addition to the glitter so it tends to change the color of any base color i wear. the milani has a clear base so it does not. a girl can never have too much glitter. hope you have a wonderful weekend! xoxo

    I love how you’ve just put the gold glitter on the end of your nails! In fact, I think it’s so adorably that I’m off to do it on my nails right now πŸ™‚
