Mani Monday with Essie Ridge filler review

So as I sit here typing this up my district has already cancelled school for tomorrow.
It is supposed to start snowing at 2 am and not stop until 8 am Wednesday!!!!!
Oh and we already have some on the ground!
I am going to be stuck in my house until probably Thursday!!!
My mani today started with Essie's Ridge Filler basecoat.
I have the ridgeyest nails! I saw THIS basecoat at Ulta while looking for something else entirely.

EssieRidge Filling  Base Coat
And I decided to try it.
It goes on well with just one coat needed to even out my ridgey nails.It makes for a great base and start to a manicure. It made applying the next layer of polish so much easier!
So if you have ridgey nails and want a quick fix try it!

After evening out my nails I applied Julep's Alaina

Alaina | Julep
to all of my nails.
Then playing around some I tried Orly's Nite Owl

on my index fingers

and Opi's Baby Please Come Home from their Mariah Carey Christmas collection
on my ring fingers. 
The Orly is so close to the Alaina but shimmery it's hard to notice.

And there you have it!
The Alaina looks very purple in the picture I think it's from the blanket!
I am really loving my Julep polish! A new box was waiting for me today when I got home!
If you are interested in checking out Julep for free I highly suggest it!

Who is the Krafty Mama?

Hi I'm the Krafty one! :) I'm the Queen to 2 little knights and a sweet princess. I married my knight in shining armor (kevlar) over 8 years ago and I am a REAL mom, wife and substitute teacher trying to be the best I can be! I love "krafting" but tend to buy more supplies than I actually use. I love make up, nail polish, hair products and fashion but have been known to leave the house in sweats a messy bun and no make up! I love to cook and bake but am guilty of feeding my kids McDonalds in a pinch. I love direct sales and have joined too many to mention! I would love to get to know you!
