Julep Maven October It Girl Swatches

Hey guys! Hope you had a great weekend! I did. My boyfriend surprised me with a weekend away and a day at Epcot, just for the hell of it. It was a blast and I absolutely loved spending time in just that park. It’s my favorite! Today, I have the swatches for October’s Maven It Girl box from Julep to share. I know it’s odd to have two swatch posts (and from the same brand) back-to-back, but this is a little important to me. It’s almost impossible to find actual swatches of Julep (outside of their Photoshopped photos on the website), and a picture of the bottle doesn’t really tell you how the polish looks on the nail. So, I’m going to be pretty consistent in swatching any Julep polishes I get. Let’s take a look!

Julep September Maven It Girl Swatches

Hey guys! It’s been a long while since I’ve done a Julep swatch post, hasn’t it? I know these are a month late, but I knew I was not going to have time to put this together during the challenge. I did however use all three of these colors in the flower design I created, so you can definitely see them working together there. Swatches are after the jump!Julep September Swatch Continue reading

OPI Calendar: October — Pink and Purple Ruffian

Hey guys! How was your weekend? I somehow managed to score a three-day weekend, and I took advantage of it! Everything’s clean, laundry is done, I finished reading a book, and I somehow managed to convince myself to paint my nails. So, today, I put together this look using four OPI colors.

31DC2014 Day 31: Honor Nails You <3

LAST ONE! Can you believe it I made it?? Only three days total that I had to make up. I’m so freaking proud of myself, it’s ridiculous. For this last prompt, I knew exactly what I was going to do. I’ve had this picture from Liloo-Nailart on my Pinterest for months. I’ve been waiting for an excuse to replicate them, and it finally came!

31DC2014 Day 30: Inspired by a Tutorial

Hey guys! I’m a day late for this prompt, but I am so determined to finish this challenge. So, here it is. I tried a completely different tutorial twice and it was such a fail both times, I didn’t even finish one nail. So I took a YouTube break and came across this latest tutorial from My Simple Little Pleasures, and, well, tried it.

31DC2014 Day 28: Inspired by a Flag

Hey all! I’ve been thinking on this prompt for a while, and finally decided I didn’t want to do actual flags. So, I went on a quest looking for fictional flags, only to find out they’re incredibly intricate. (Like this Gotham one.) I finally came across one I felt like attempting to do, so here is my Rohan flag.

31DC2014 Day 27: Inspired by Art

Hey all. Hope you’re having a better Saturday than I am — I’m stuck at work. Today’s prompt is based off artwork, and I went a little different with my art piece. Rather than picking one by an actual artist, I chose one of my own.
