Hello friends! I am so sorry that I have not been posting as much lately. I just started grad school last night and the last few weeks of summer have been very busy! But today I have a very exciting post for you all!
A couple of weekends ago I went on a weekend trip to Newport, Rhode Island. It is a very beautiful summer town that has a lot of awesome shops in it. While looking in one of the shops I found a beautiful cocktail ring that just caught my eye. It had a beautiful deep blue stone that seemed to have a lot of glitter in it. I am a sucker for rings and I bought it for myself. After talking to the woman who owned the store I found out the stone was called Druzy and I have used it to inspire my post today.
For this manicure I used Zoya Frida (from the Fall 2012 Glossy Collection) and Color Club Sugarplum Fairy. I created the look by using the steps of a typical jelly glitter sandwich. I started with two coats of Zoya Frida, then I added one coat of Sugarplum Fairy, then I added two more coats of Frida on top.
The bottom two pictures show the ring I bought in comparison to the nails. The stone is a little darker of a color than the polish that I used, but I still think that it looks really pretty and it has the essence of the stone. It is a really fun play on a jelly sandwich and I love how it matched my nails. Usually I am not a matching kind of person, but to me this was really cute.
