NOTD - Pretty in Purple

When I was swatching the Zoya Lovely Collection something drew me into Julie. It's a beautiful polish, but there's nothing about it that screams that it is crazy original, but it still drew me in! Around the same time I got it, I received dried flowers and glitter sheets from Born Pretty Store to review. I knew exactly what had to be done...



<3  Soft, feminine and flirty. 

I did one coat of Julie on all nails, then a second coat on all but my ring finger. When those were dry, I did a second coat on my ring finger and began placing the dark purple glitter rounds one by one. I outlined the outside first and worked my way to the middle and covered my nail in the glitter rounds. I then topped with a thin coat of top coat and gently placed the flower on top with tweezers. Gently pressed down with my finger to make sure it was flat and even. Once satisfied I topped with a decent coat of Seche Vite to make sure all was covered and even. Then I repeated on my right hand.




I fell for this look. I know the flower is a tad big, but I really liked how it covered the majority of my nail. 

The top coat on my left nail ended up getting a little smudged, but I promised you all the good and the bad. My nails aren't perfect most of the time, but it's all fun here. :o)

This was so easy to do and didn't take much time at all. I love these products and am looking forward to doing so much more with them.
