Twinsie Tuesday: Summer to Fall Transitional

When my best friend decided to send me Essie Urban Jungle, I knew, despite it being from the Summer 2014 Collection, was the perfect polish for today's Twinsie Tuesday post.

Summer to Fall transitional polishes are, to me, a time for softer, non-pastel hues.  The neons are put away and the vampies are itching for application, but for the day after Labor Day, a pink-toned white-ish nude seemed perfectly apt to capture the end of the beach season.

Apart from how lovely this color is, Urban Jungle is also a peach to apply.  Despite being a tad bit chalky on the first coat, after two coats, it's a creamy delight.  I used three just to even everything out and the final product was delicious.  But since this is a transitional TT post, I decided to add a few Born Pretty Store star stud rhinestones as reminder of the ebbing summer.

You ladies know I'm not a huge nail art connoisseur, but I'm kinda in love with this look.  This beautiful Essie and adorable stars really worked for me and I actually want to look into getting these studs in different colors.  If I want to recreate this look for fall and winter, I'll need darker colors studs for my anal seasonally appropriate only color palette stat!

However, please note that the circle wheels these stars came in also had the same color studs in a circle shape and only once I had already swatched and photographed this manicure, I saw that both gold and silver stars and circles were included as well.
