I’ve had about two weeks of three wonderful nail colors!
After my last Nail Files post, I did do the Julep manicure in Annie. And was immediately smitten. I said at that point that it was my favorite nail polish that I owned, period. It is just the coolest color, I can’t describe it!!
This pic was right after I finished painting, even before the glossy Seche Vite clear coat. I was just obsessed with the color! Then I ruined them a few days later by doing a matte topcoat. Eh. I just don’t love matte! The only time I did really like it was on some very light blue/aqua colors. Oh well.
It is a pink chrome, but very neutral-y and soooo silky. There were some brushstrokes while I painted, but it dried perfectly.
I wore this polish for my weekend getaway, and it wore really well, even being on the beach and jet skiing. The color was a bit more vibrant/pink in the sun:
Before I changed it up yesterday, I did have some chips, but due to the color being more neutral and shiny, it was VERY hard to notice them. The amount of wear I put on this polish, the few tiny chips I had were awesome- I doubt many polishes would last as well. And this is a great polish to wear for a while, since the chips aren’t as noticable.
My mom also gave me two polishes while we were on vacay because she wasn’t going to use them! Essie FTW!
I was sad to change my Butter London polish but I needed a new pedi too, so it was time yesterday. I decided to go for a ketchup and mustard look!
For my toes I went with e.l.f. Medium Red:
Yes, I’m rocking the nine year old sorority flip flops this AM.
And my nails… I had to go with another Julep from this month’s box! My other polish was Alma, a mustardy yellow.
I couldn’t be more in love! It’s another almost-neutral, but has a little pop/wow factor because it’s yellow. I think it’s a good transition into trying some fall colors. I have been so excited to do darker fall colors, but the lack of fall weather makes it hard!
I’m also really jazzed about Julep for October. I have been more and more thrilled with each box! I’m going with the It Girl box this month. I don’t love crackle but I do enjoy it when it’s a metallic color. I think the silver crackle would look awesome over a lavender polish! And the other two are so bewitching! I thought about adding on Eloise but ended up adding Sofia, the glow in the dark polish!
Julep members- you can make changes still through the 24th! (20th – 24th of each month.) Also I noticed that they added a 6th box this month, Maven’s Choice, with only cremes since some people are very anti-crackle. So cool that they listened to maven comments! Which box did you mavens pick?

I think for sure the above polishes will really kick off my fall manicures! Hopefully the weather will match too by then!
