Essence Twins Romeo & Julia - Degrassi Showdown Finale Week

Super quick post for today!!

Things went down on Degrassi last night in a way I wasn't really expecting so I am pretty apprehensive for the finale this evening. Tonight is supposed to be the opening night of Romeo and Jules, a musical adaptation of Romeo and Juliet that stars two gay men as the lead characters. This play has caused a huge uproar amongst the students and parents at Degrassi so we're not quite sure that it's actually going to happen. I'm excited (and extremely nervous) to see what goes down in the season finale tonight!

In honor of Romeo and Jules, I thought it only fitting to wear my Essence Twins Romeo and Julia duo! This Essence duo is a European exclusive and I was lucky enough to have one of my overseas nail friends send me a few of these duos. Romeo is a smooth medium grey creme that took an easy two coats for full coverage. Julia, the square silver holo glitter, is most definitely the star of the show here!! I am kind of obsessed with square glitter and Julia is one of my favorites in my whole collection of square glitters. LOVE IT!

Here is one coat of Essence Julia over two coats of Essence Romeo. Enjoy!




And here's one in really low light because look at how awesome those holo squares look!


Here is the poster for Degrassi's production of Romeo and Jules. Knowing Degrassi, nothing ever goes as planned at it will be a small miracle if that play opens tonight!


Thanks for stopping by today!

  5. Love this! I'm wearing gray polish today - OCC's Dangerous- but not sure it's working with my summer outfit. I may need to save it for fall. Or brighten it up with some glitter:-)
