NYC birthday weekend nails: Essie – Capri
For my birthday weekend, boyfriend and I went to NYC to go to my fave top chef contestant Angelo’s restaurant Social Eatz, to catch a Broadway show, and to watch the Baltimore Orioles lose to the Yankees in Yankee Stadium. *sigh*
Because of my love for the Orioles, I really wanted an orange for the weekend which I waaas going to black shatter but then I felt that might be too Halloween so I went with the tried and true mani with ring finger accent nail.
I chose Essie’s Capri because it screamed ORANGE to me and I wanted an obnoxious orange to combat obnoxious Yankees fans (ha ha). I really liked the application but the color may have been a bit tooo loud for me. It certainly wasn’t subtle. OPI – Crown Me Already was also very very glittery. It practically covered the nail in silver, and I thought it looked too silver. Good thing I had a random-ass Icing nail polish called Let’s Tango, a sheer frosty orange that gave the glitter a frosted orange tint.. perfect!
The restaurant was good, the show (Catch Me If You Can the musical) was good, the Orioles suck (but I still love them) and the mani was good. There were some minor chips but hey, I was hanging around NYC so I wasn’t exactly gentle on my hands this weekend. Overall, I had an amazing time. I love everything about NYC*.
