i recently became a julep maven, despite all of the disappointment i've heard about terrible formula & bad service. but i have to say, with the exception of extremely slow shipping to Canada, i love it so far!
this is a mani i did with one of the colors in my introductory box. (this post is a tad picture heavy!)
this is 2 coats of Julep Otte, a coat of Ninja Polish Shattered Star &
some line art with a black striper! this mani was extremely fun &
easy to do. which is awesome if you ask me. i was inspired by Nailside, where Jane does a mani similar to this, but i could only do the 2 arrow stripes because my nails were shorter.
shattered star has also become one of my favorite glitters. it's the perfect gold (not too yellow) and has lots of holographic glitter! this was part of Ninja Polish's holiday collection. overall i really liked that such a simple design could be so striking!
here's a swatch of Otte by itself. i wasn't sure about this color on my skin tone, but i still love it. neutrals have me in a hold right now that i cannot describe. and this is a unique color too! like a nice camel/sand creme.
