"Not a Mint Julep" Nail Art/Manicure

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?

Products Used:

"Tiny Bubbles" Manicure/Tutorial

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!

I started with a base coat of Sally Hansen Miracle Cure and followed that with one coat of Celeb City also by Sally Hansen in the Xtreme Wear line.

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!!
