Quick Chip Fix

Today’s post is a short one, but I wanted to share my quick and easy chip fix for my polish.

 

Polish from base of nail to tip:

Julep Polish in Sandra/SpaRitual Polish in Looking Glass/SpaRitual Polish in Drop Dead Gorgeous.

 

The tips of my nail polish started to chip from all of the wear and tear I put them through. Rather than taking off my polish and starting from scratch, I decided to give them a quick fix. All it took was one coat of a deeper pink polish to not only fix the chips but also give the design a new look!

What do you do when your polish starts to chip? Do you touch it up or start from scratch?

Silver and Magenta Cloud Nails

I have been on a nail polish kick lately. Here is my latest polish design.

Magenta: Julep in Sandra Silver: SpaRitual in Looking Glass

I have bought 8 new nail polishes in the last 2 weeks. I got 5 new polishes in my Julep It-Girl Mystery Box.

Most recently I bought 3 new SpaRitual mini-polishes with an Apothica gift card I won over on Erica’s fabulous blog Sweets and Hearts. (Thank you for the awesome giveaway Erica!) If you haven’t already seen her blog I highly recommend checking it out. She has such a fun style!

I had so many choices that I couldn’t simply pick one color to paint my nails. For this look I decided on the Julep nail polish in Sandra as a base color. Once that dried I applied the SpaRitual polish in Looking Glass polish. To make the cloud shape I simply stopped part way down the nail with the brush.

I’m super excited for fall to arrive so I can start wearing the darker nail polish shades. The rich burgundy and brown tones are my favorites!

I hope you all are having a good start to your week!

Julep Mystery Box!

Julep Mystery Box!

 

My Julep Mystery “It Girl” Box arrived yesterday afternoon and I was ecstatic when I saw what was inside!

 

How cute is this packaging? I felt like I was opening a present with all of the confetti and bright colored paper!

Julep’s website said that each box would contain at least 2 bottles of nail polish and anywhere from $60 to $200 worth of product. My 5 bottles of polish have a value of $70 and it only cost me$19.99 for the box!

The colors I received were perfect. Rachel is a nice coppery brown shade, which will be great for fall, Sandra is a shimmery hot pink shade, Jessica is a very soft shade of baby blue, and Megan is a shimmery teal shade. I chose to wear the Megan shade first because I loved that it matched my computer case perfectly!

 

Another great thing about Julep polish is that it does not contain many of the harsh chemicals typically found in nail polishes. Julep’s website says, “Julep Nail Color is “4-free” and does not contain formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, toluene, or DBP. Our professional chip-resistant formulation is delivered via our exclusive flat brush with micro-frayed brush hairs.”

If Julep runs the Mystery Box special again I can assure you I will be first in line! 🙂

Did you order a mystery box? If so, what did you get inside? If not, do you think you’ll order one if they are offered in the future?

Going for Gold

In honor of the closing ceremonies I added a touch of gold to my fingers and toes!

Nail Polish: Spa Ritual in Solstice

I absolutely love this polish. I admit, normally I wouldn’t be so bold as to wear it all over my nails but my mom pointed out that the Olympics were the perfect excuse to do so. My Julep “mystery box” is scheduled to arrive today. I am hoping that I will be able to share my haul with you later this week.

Did you catch the closing ceremonies? What was your favorite part? Are you already psyched for Rio in 2016?

I hope your week is getting off to a great start!
