So this was waiting for me in the mail when I got home...
...my April Julep Maven selections. And I have to say that my mind was completely blown when I saw these in person. From left to right in the photo --
Eden - violet crelly (cream and jelly hybrid)
Abbie - sunshine yellow cream
Mackenzie - grass green shimmer
Ally - indigo blue shimmer
Kaylen - neon orange cream
Avery - neon pink cream
I grabbed my favorite base from my hoard...
OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls. This is a ever-so-slightly greyed out white. I consider it a white without the blindness.
And I created this...
...using a medium and small sized dotting tool. For those of you not familiar with a dotting tool, I got mine here. Anything can make dots though if you don't have the tools - a mechanical pencil, paper clip, push pin, etc. I had no specific plan. I just started putting random dots of different sizes in three colors on each nail. My right hand is a completely different color combination using all the same colors.
As always, I was very impressed with the Julep polishes. They cover well and are highly pigmented. As is normal for a neon polish, the purple, orange and pink dried with a satin finish (not quite matte but not shiny). I let the dots dry for a couple of minutes before covering the whole thing with Seche Vite.
I really hope that you enjoyed this manicure, and that maybe it inspires you to try something crazy with your own nails!
May 25th is the date that I celebrate ONE YEAR of blogging about nails and polish. I am planning a spectacular giveaway, so please keep reading and watching.
Til another polish...
