Nail Of The Day: Sugar Plum Fairy

Today I am wearing a Julie G nail polish from the Jesse's Girl 2013 Holiday Collection, called "Sugar Plum Fairy." I received this polish in my December Ipsy bag and finally just got around to trying it out! Sugar Plum Fairy is a purple, blue and silver glittery/"textured" polish.

I have never used a Julie G nail polish before and the concept behind this polish is very different from any other polish that I have tried before! To achieve the full effect, the website instructs you to not use a base or top coat. As instructed, I applied this polish straight to my nails. Despite being a "textured" and glitter polish the formula was smooth, creamy and easy to apply. I used two coats to achieve full opacity, but you could definitely get away with only one! This polish dried matte, which I found very interesting - but I am sceptical about how long this will last on my nails since I did not use a base or top coat! 

I am not the largest fan of glitter polishes, mostly because they are a pain in the you-know-what to take off, but purple is one of my universities colours, so this is going to be perfect polish to wear for school events!

Have you ever tried a Julie G polish before? What are your thoughts?
