Julep Maria

Super shiny pink foil. Slightly streaky but not bad. The color is subtle but the shine sure isn't!

Wintry Blue

Had a snowy day with time to play with my nails. This sparkly blue seemed perfect for the season!

This color is Nicole's Rich in Spirit. It's a really lovely blue with a hint of green or teal to it in some lights.

The best part of it is the sparkle. It's not glittery but more of a foil, with tiny little sparkles that are truly dazzling. You'll definitely be mesmerized by this color. I did three thin coats for full coverage.

French Mani with Glitter Tips

Here's Julep's Jennifer. Pretty color, barely-there-pink. This is two coats, but one coat would have been fine for just some sheer color for a shiny, natural look. It would be a great base for a French manicure.

I found it just a bit boring by itself, however. So I jazzed it up with some Julep Vanessa on the tips, making a glitter tip French mani. I think Vanessa alone would be too light, but I love the subtle change it makes on my tips. It looks like I dipped my fingers into something sparkly!

Also did one little fun accent nail by adding a flower from Konad stamp m60 in white and adorning it with a little bauble from my last Julep order. Of course I covered the whole shebang with a clear topcoat.

Julep Giveaway

I've decided that since I love so many of the Julep colors I may very well have to get them all. Fortunately there's a contest for this very thing: a chance to win Julep's whole polish line!

I've got plaid nails!

Here's my first attempt at nail art stamping: Plaid Nails!

The pattern is from Konad nail stamp m60.

I used two Julep colors: Keira over Shania. I love this pearly gray and deep burgundy color combo.

It's my first attempt and admittedly a bit wonky, but it's so much fun. I'll definitely be doing nail stamping again!
