Hello! Hope you all had a great weekend. I had a fairly busy one, but definitely enjoyed it. Today, I have a different kind of post to share with you. I received this month’s Maven Box from Julep last week and decided to swatch the colors before playing with them in a nail art fashion. Let me know what you think!
First up is Margaret. This is a beautiful cornflower blue creme. This is two — rather thick — coats. It probably could have been three thin ones, but I always forget how much polish gathers on the Julep brushes. I’m actually still wearing this color. It’s definitely my favorite out of the trio.
Hey guys! Hope you’re having a good week so far. I have a new design to share with you today using OPI polishes. I was absolutely loving the Essie color I shared with you yesterday, but had too much tip wear to be able to use that base. So, I grabbed another dark purple polish out of my stash and went to town.
Hey guys! I couldn’t resist uploading this for you. I purchased Essie’s Under the Twilight a couple weeks ago and finally got to trying it. (It’s from their resort collection.) I plan on using this as a base for nail art, but love it so much that I wanted to post a swatch.
Isn’t it beautiful?! I absolutely adore this color. It’s a deep purple that looks black in certain light. I probably have a ton of “almost blacks” like this, but I think this one has become my absolutely favorite.
Gah! Too beautiful for words! Hopefully, I’ll have some art worthy of the color to share tomorrow. See you then!
Hey guys! Did you watch the Oscars last night? I…did not. Ever since the movies nominated have been movies I have no interest in seeing, I’ve given up on those awards. Maybe one day we’ll get to nominating movies that are entertaining? Who know. (I’m also aggravated at The Hobbit’s lack of nominations, but c’est la vie.)
Hey guys! I pushed back my post this week to coincide with the Lacquer Legion’s February date. This month it’s been about adoration and when I sat down to think about what I wanted to do earlier this week, I couldn’t get holos out of my mind. Indie polishes and holos are sort of new to me, and I’m so excited to have both!
Hey guys! Have a good weekend? Mine was spectacularly busy! All I want to do today is sit around the house, but alas! I have to work. Today, I have a fun design to show you. I’ve gotten tired of dreary winter colors, and since it’s warming up already in Florida, I went neon.
Hey guys! I have a simple manicure to share with you today. A while back, Zoya had a promotion to get three polishes free and I took them up on it. Spending $27 on six bottles was a steal, and I decided to do an easy look with two of them.
Hey guys! Hope you had a good week. My week was packed and exhausting and nonstop. Unfortunately, this coming week will be more of the same. I wanted to share this mani with you Thursday, but didn’t have the time to edit the photos. The main issue with my posting has been cropping the photos and choosing which ones to use. I’ve found a rhythm, but it takes significantly longer than it did with my old camera.
Hi all! Did you have a good weekend? I had a crazy one! My brother got married Saturday, so the entire weekend was full. I new I had to get something on my nails for the event, and when I was looking at my stash, I landed on a pretty special color.
Hey all! How has your week been? My brother is getting married Saturday, so I’ve been so antsy to be finished with work. Today’s my last day working before Sunday, so I’m excited for that. Last weekend I got my February box from Julep. I opted out of January because I wasn’t a fan of the colors, and I’m so happy this box’s selections were better. I tried to think of nail art, but ended up just liking the colors standing on their own.
