I just got my first Julep box and couldn't fight the urge to use all of the polishes that came in it. Now that I look at the picture I can see what I would have done differently, I would have only done the glitter on my ring finger. But overall I think it came out pretty cute. Not sure if I like the Julep polishes though. I found them to be quite thick and took forever to dry. What do you guys think of them?
So I've been having more fun with my new polishes. I watched some easy nail art tutorials that MissJenFaboulous did on youtube and had to give a couple of them a try. Here are the manicures I tried out this week:
Teal has become a new modern holiday color. I've been seeing it pop up more and more in holiday decorations, makeup and nail art. It took me a while to figure out how to incorporate it in a manicure that it would be the feature color but still have a holiday feel to it. I paired it with silver, because everything looks festive with silver, sparkle and shine!! LOL I called this "tiny bubbles" because it made me think of a festive holiday cocktail. Hope you enjoy!
Next I applied one coat of Stunning
by Revlon for added sparkle.
With a medium sized dotting tool I applied random dots of Rise and Shine
by Sinful Colors and White On
by Sally Hansen to each nail.
On my thumb and ring finger I applied a smaller dot in the middle of each dot in the opposite color for a little added interest. I finished with one coat of Sally Hansen Dries Instantly
and cleaned excess polish from my cuticles. Super easy and oh so cute!!
