Nail news

3 Jul

I saw on a bunch of nail blogs I read, don’t judge, a lot of talk recently about Julep polish and their monthly boxes of nail polish. I’m fairly nosey, but also fairly cheap so when I came across a code (Color2012) to try it for a penny I did.

I put in my order this week and it got here really fast. You have to take a quiz to sign up. I’m apparently an “it girl.” that’s a laugh. Anyway, it came packaged really cute:

And inside was three nail polishes and a pair of toe divider things for when I paint my toenails! Here’s a picture of the polishes:

The middle one is actually cantaloupe colored, I don’t know what the deal is on why it kept photographing pink. I love the purple, lily, is great. It’s really similar to China Glaze’s Ahoy but without the glitter. I can only say that because I was wearing Ahoy when I got them and tried them on. The yellow, daisy, is kind of cute but not on me. I think it’ll be cute on Bea. The surprise color is the cantaloupe, Sasha, I would’ve never picked it for myself but I really like it.

Of course I had to do a manicure with my new polish, because I’m a baby. I used two coats of Lily and one coat of Daisy. And a coat of Seche Vite on top (that stuff is amazing!!).

I think it’s pretty cool. Here’s the affiliate link they sent me, if you’re interested: Julep.

      When I did it, I put in the code “color2012” where it asked for a discount code.

    I love the look of the purple shade, but they’re all very pretty! Great deal you got there 🙂

      It’s been holding up and not chipping pretty well so far, which amazes me.
