My Engagement Ring Manicure!

TGIF, ladies!
So, I got engaged July 21st and due to sizing issues, I just NOW got my engagement ring BACK! So I decided it was time to tribute my gorgeous ring by doing a matching manicure! It's my dream ring, my birthstone Sapphire has been my favorite stone forever and I've always loved vintage looking rings. My fiance Jeff hit the nail right on the head! :P Here we go!!!
I finally chose my blue for my Engagement Manicure, I picked aruba blue by essie. I love this blue sooo much, this is my first time using this polish, it just glows! Now that we sell essie at my work (CVS/Pharmacy) I've begun QUITE the essie collection! This is two coats. I wanted a nice silver glitter to match the diamonds on my ring, I chose Sparkling Diamonds by LA Colors Color Craze (bottle is numbered BCC 555). I love this glitter, only one coat and soooo much glitter comes off the brush. I love how it has large hexagonal glitter along with small glitter.
I'm so pleased with how this turned out! *pats self on the back* essie polishes can be polished as I said before at CVS/Pharmacy or salons for around $8/bottle. La Colors Color Craze can be at Dollar Tree for, well a dollar! They really do have a great selection!
