Julep maven

Hi guys! I know long time no blog. Sorry took me so long to make a post life just seemed to get in the way. A lot has changed since the last time I was on here. For starters I have a new job, I just moved into a new apartment, and life is ... life is just been going my way recently. 

So without further ado here are the pretties that I have accumulated in the last couple of months. 

1. Dianna 2. Debra 3. Dahlia 4. Leila 5. Stevie 6. Tatiana  7. Kristy 8. Lexie

It's not really a lot because I have been on a permanent no-buy unless I can justify the purchase. I already own tons of nail polish I have no real need to buy anymore, but the eight that I'm bout to show are my absolute favorites at the moment. I do have more that I recently purchased but I don't know where they're at because I am still in the process of unpacking my house. 

I'm pretty sure by now that everyone has heard of Julep. Well if you haven't it's a company that has been around for a while that manufactures nail polish, cosmetics and skin care products. They have a monthly club called Julep Maven, where subscribers  receive 3 full size products every month. You just take a quick style test and your on your way to personalized beauty delivered to your doorstep monthly. I receive the Boho Glam maven box so I receive 2 nail varnishes and 1 cosmetic/skin care product. I love that they usually sent me polishes that I would have never picked out on my own that I absolutely love wearing. I'm not really a yellow person but because of Lexie and Leila it's starting to grow on me. 

Well enough ranting and raving from me you can go try it out for yourselves at www.Julep.com.

Lazy Saturday Girls Day

So to kick off our lazy girls day Brianna and I battled in Mortal Kombat on the xbox. Next we danced our hearts out to various top hits on our iTunes playlist. Bri's fijit Sarafina even got bite by the dancing bug. Our afternoon movie matinee was a snooze fest for Bri because she fell asleep while watching Crawlspace, I on the other hand was left thoroughly confused. Alex Cross was a smash hit in both of our amateur movie critic opinions. Dinner was a hearty event followed by hot chocolate topped with cool whip and popcorn. Ms. Bri got a super cute animal print gel manicure while we watched the Once Upon a Time marathon.

All tied up in Celtic knots

This is a pic of my Easter holiday nails. As you can tell not your typical Easter design. I pride myself on being different. I'm trying to bring myself out of my comfort zone by wearing colors that I usually turn my nose up at even though I own them. So I went really budget friendly by using only wet n wild $1 polishes. The metallic silver is called Metallica and the stamping was done using Black Creme. I did the stamping with the XL Cheeky image plates that can be found on amazon.com for like $19- 25.

Gel Polish: Blue 10

Well if you follow me on youtube I then you know that I recently made a small purchase from maytheps. Its a website that sells nail art supplies such as acrylic powder, nail art brushes, gel nail kits, fimo slices, nail decals, crystals and such. the main reason for my purchase was to get more uv soak off gel polishes to use with my new led lamp. I ordered 23 gel polishes and one magnetic polish.  My absolutely fave polish that I purchased would have to be the blue Im about to show you. The pictures don't really do it justice.

 The polish is from a company called Hong Nuo. Unfortunately the polishes don't have names just numbers so this is #10. The pictures are are a tad bit lighter in real life, I took these from my webcam because I misplaced my camera. Im also trying out a new app on my computer, Poladroid, it turns your pics into vintage-y polaroid. It reminds me of my childhood and my mom always reminding me not to fingerprint the photo.  Well I would of had a picture of last night snowfall but it had all disappeared this morning so maybe next time. Enjoy the photos.
