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.  😉

Happy hump day!!

I know, I know, that’s SO three months ago.  I had an urge and I went with it. 🙂

On Wednesdays we wear pink!  I just love the movie Mean Girls, how about you guys?  There are even several Mean Girls themed polishes in my collection, and I inevitably have to stop and watch the movie if I catch it on.  Totally a guilty pleasure, I’ll admit.  I also love to memorialize and celebrate its hilarity and the Plastics code by wearing and/or posting pink nail polish on Wednesdays.

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

Cult Nails It’s a New Day Collection

Happy Sunday all!  I hope you had an enjoyable weekend and feel rested and refreshed and ready for the week ahead.  LOLOLOL  I know, I know, but still.  

Today I have a polish collection to share with you from one of my favorite polish makers, Cult Nails.  Maria makes wonderful polishes that I always seem to find the irresistible urge to buy! Her frequent sales and discounted collection pre-sales help to make this possible. ^_^  Today’s collection is the recently released It’s A New Day.  Funny story about this one, I placed my order a couple days before the end of the pre-sale and was excited to get my shipping information confirmed when the items were packaged.  They were shipped on 4/30 with an anticipated delivery date of 5/2.  May 2nd came and went and no polish. They seem to have taken a detour between the Orlando sort facility and my home in south central Pennsylvania as they were eventually delivered on May 12th after a trouble ticket and a couple calls to the USPS.  Did they go to Disney, Universal Studios or check out the New Harry Potter attractions?  Maybe visit some of my friends that still live in Florida?  The world may never know.  But I digress.  Now, on to the beautiful spring polishes……  Continue reading
