Julep Helena – On Wednesdays We Wear Pink

Happy Hump day!!   Midway through the week and it’s time for my random weekly tribute to Mean Girls with an ‘On Wednesdays We Wear Pink’ post.  Since Pink is not my usual color of choice, this will enable me to more fully utilize my many pink polishes.  Today in addition to a pink polish, I am also using a Pink Floyd themed glitter topper and a holographic polish to add to the look.  I hope you all like it.

First the base polish is Helena from Julep. My photos don’t capture it, but this pink has a strong blue undertone. It’s hard to explain, but as I pulled the polish wand from the bottle I picked up a strong blue-ish tint.  I had heard of colors (often reds) having a blue tone to them, but didn’t exactly understand how that could be until now. Very interesting!  This color is a very bright pink and is almost opaque with two coats as I am showing in these photos.  The first is with a photo flash and the second indirect sunlight. You can see that the flash brings out a lot more of the pink punch this pretty polish packs.  😉

A Box, Indied – July 2014

Happy Saturday, all!  I hope you all enjoyed your 4th of July (or Friday/week if not in the States lol).  Here in Pennsylvania, we had beautiful and unseasonable weather, in the upper 70s, and it was down to 70 by the time the fireworks started. It really was a very nice day.  I am more of a winter girl than a summer one, so for me to say that there was nice weather on the holiday and the day before (my birthday) is almost unheard of! LOL  But I digress……. Today I have the latest A Box, Indied collection for July 2014.  This month’s theme is “A Fair To Remember” and the colors in this box are a nice, summery representation of that theme.

A Box, Indied – June 2014

Hello, all!  I hope you are having a nice week.  It’s hump day and all downhill from here!  I have FINALLY put together my post for this month’s A Box, Indied collection from Llarowe.  This month’s box came with four polishes from Girly Bits, Jindie Nails, Different dimension and a hand scrub from Glisten & Glow.  I love the inclusion of a product for hand and/or nail care. Last month there was a nail and cuticle oil, also from Glisten & Glow, and I feel that these items complement the nail polishes wonderfully. To have beautiful nails you must care for your hands and cuticles also! Continue reading
