Rayna James, Connie Britton’s Style – Nashville the TV Show

One of the things I love about the show Nashville is seeing all of the fun outfits particularly for Rayna James played by Connie Britton. One stood out to me and although it’s not one of the most amazing outfits, it has been nagging at the back of my mind for some reason.  There’s just something about the white dress she wore during Season 1 Episide 4 – I love the chiffon layers combined with that little hint of sequin sparkle layered underneath at the neckline. It’s glitzy but not too over the top.

I’m betting it costs a fortune but if anyone knows who made the dress and where it could be bought, I’m curious. Let me know in the comments if you do.

Glittery Pinks – Essie “Luxe Affects” Multidimensional Top Coat in “A Cut Above” vs Wet N Wild Shine in “Sparked” or 435G

Right to Left (reverse of what you’re probably used to): 1 coat of Essie “A Cut Above” then 3 generous coats, 1 coat of Wet N Wild “Sparked” then 3 generous coats, and the last one on the left is one coat of “A Cut Above” over 2 coats of Essie “A Crewed Interest.”

The color is almost identical but the application is totally different. I almost would say you shouldn’t compare the two and would not consider this a “dup.”

  • If you’re looking for a finer glitter I would go with the Wet N Wild but if you want a more confetti glitter look I would go with the Essie.
  • If I had to pick between the two and could only buy one, I would go with the Essie even though it’s more expensive because it just somehow looks a bit more upscale and classier. I did however get the Essie in the March “Teen Vogue” Birchbox.

There is also apparently a Revlon color that is, based on the swatches I see online, somewhere in between the two I’ve reviewed here. Revlon 261-Sparkling.

And Butter London also has a pink glittery color called “Rosie Lee.” B-you-tifullness via Pretty Project via High on Polish via Snappette (aka I saw it on Snappette and the source is B-you-tifullness) has a great example of a pink glitter and nude mani using the Butter London “Rosie Lee.”

I did a quick little video so you can see the two colors I reviewed just a little better.
