This is my favorite water marble I’ve done so far…another moment when I realize that I need to practice, practice, practice! =) I hope you guys like this! Have a lovely day, lacquered loves!! <3
Hi everyone…hope you are all having a great end to your weekend. The weather has been beautiful here! Unseasonably warm…I’ve been enjoying it! Just a quick post for this evening. As you know if you read along, I’ve been really enjoying revisiting my older Julep polishes lately and I am finding that I really like the brand! I looove the brush, the formula is usually great, and they wear well on me.
This is two coats of Julep Kim, a slightly frosty gunmetal gray, with Julep Fast Dry Top Coat. Kim applied very easily, and there were no visible brushstroke issues like I expected with a finish like this! The Julep top coat sort of smells like rubber cement, but I find that it does wear well. And when possible, I like to wear the same brand’s top coat with their polishes because the formulations usually work well together.
And yay! Kim matched my shirt! =) I obviously love wearing stripes…I have them on in almost ever picture like this I post on here!
If you like Kim, or the other polishes I have posted lately from Julep, check out their Maven program! For $19.99 a month you will receive a box full of $40-$60 worth of their polishes and hand care products (and you skip any month or cancel at any time)! If you use code COLOR2012, you can get your first box for one cent! Follow [this link]! Thanks for reading today <3
I’m really excited about today’s post…this polish is epic. I am lucky enough to own a bottle of Unicorn Puke and a bottle of Clairvoyant =) They are the same polish, just in a different bottle with a different name! And as you all know, this is currently unavailable and highly desirable! Plus, we had a super sunny day in Ohio, so it was perfect for photographing this beauty!!! I wanted to layer Clairvoyant over a color that would allow the purple base to shine through, so I used two coats of OPI Lucky Lucky Lavender. I layered on two coats of Cult Nails Clairvoyant with a coat of Cult Nails Wicked Fast…it’s fabulous!!! =)

I hope you guys are all having a great weekend so far and will enjoy the holiday safely tonight! These nails are very, very green…which, I suppose, was my goal! I give you St. Patrick’s Day appropriate green “wobbly lines”!
Look at all that green! I love looking at all the different shades and how each nail is unique. I just used my dotting tool, started at the free edge of the nail and layered all the polishes over each other! I let each one dry a bit before moving on to the next one, so it did take quite a bit of time. I finished it off with OPI RapidDry.
From the free-edge to the base of the nail, I used:
Essie Navigate Her
OPI Gargantuan Green Grape
Cult Nails In A Trance
China Glaze Gaga For Green
Claire’s Lime Yours
Butter London Dosh
This look could be done with any color combination, it’s just sort of important that the colors are opaque enough that one row of messy dots covers the color before it! I’ve seen something similar done where the dots are done in a much neater fashion so they all line up, but I wanted mine to be kind of funky and wild. What do you think? What do you have going on for St. Patrick’s Day? Have fun everyone! Thanks for reading today! =)
Hi everyone! Happy Friday! =) Today I’m showing you the first of two St. Patrick’s Day posts. I don’t really get too into St. Patty’s, but I know a lot of people do, so I figured I’d have some fun with some green and gold! Plus, this gave me an excuse to get out possibly my favorite polish of all time: Butter London Dosh! I’m not sure why I love it so much, but it just a perfect slightly awkward green packed with gorgeous shimmer in an amazing creamy formula that I just adore! I just love love love it! =)
For this manicure I did two coats of Butter London Dosh and then painted some Julep Oscar near the cuticle and about half way up the nail. I attempted to make it look like it had been sponged on, so I just used the bottle brush to randomly mess up the edge. Hope that makes sense! =) I finished it off with OPI RapidDry top coat. I think this is a tasteful and subtle, yet super fun, St. Patty’s manicure.
I’m enjoying this mani! I hope you like it too! What are you wearing on your nails for the holiday weekend? =) Any fun plans?! Thanks for reading today!! Love you all! I’ll leave you with all of my green polishes!
