Julep Maven Box!

Published May 4, 2012 by MyEye4Fashion

Hey guys! I received this on Monday, but yet again I’m just getting around to it lol. This is my first Julep box, since I paid the 1 cent lol. I really have been on a super tight budget when it comes to nail polish because I recently bought 8 from Julie G. Anywhoo, I switched my box from Classic to It Girl, because I loved all the bright colors! This was $19.99.

This pic shows the true color of the wrapping paper, it was a muddy navy blue. I was a bit dark for the theme I was expecting, but no biggie.

The flash made this look bright blue, but the purple tie was cute lol.

(L to R) Nessa, Kylie, and Ashley! OK, so I was super excited because Nessa is one letter away from being my name, which is Neysa LMAOO. Over the years, I’ve had quite a few people call me Nessa (sometimes thinking short for Vanessa *sigh*) and the like -_____- even after repeatedly correcting them, in a nice way of course :-p. Anyway these colors are awesome and the Kylie is a magnetic polish and the other 2 are regular. The magnetic look has the ripple affect, which a lot of brands are attempting to do now.

This is the tool you use to get the magnetic ripple affect. On the note card there are directions on how to get the look, which is cool! What I love is, you can always skip a month if you don’t like anything or if you don’t have the budget that month. Its very comforting to know I have a say lol.

Hope you guys enjoyed this post! Have you tried Julep? Let me know.

Until next time ๐Ÿ™‚

Julie G ‘s New Nail Polish Line! April 2012

Published April 18, 2012 by MyEye4Fashion

Ok, so these are the first 5 polishes I ordered out of 8 and there is 27 in the collection. I forgot to take a picture like this with the other three, but you’ll see them below. I lined up the polishes in the back accordingly. (From left to right) Dream in Pretty, Fierce and Fab, Passion, Gelato in Venice, and Shimmer Island. ย Below I show them with 1 coat with the bottle, then 2 coats, subsequently. I apologize in advance for some of the messy polish lol. I didn’t clean then up as I was only swatching ๐Ÿ™‚

This is Dream in Pretty with one coat! It is a creamy lilac with a boost. I was really impressed, it was pretty easy to work with and I think it’s my favorite out of the bunch!

This is with 2 coats! Looovee it!

Fierce and Fab was the polish I was most disappointed in. I know it was supposed to be a matte finish, but the color after it matted down was ehh, not my cup of tea. I would have loved the color of the polish in the bottle.; it’s a rich almost neon purple, very vibrant. I’m not sure, maybe I would like the color more with a glossy top coat.

Here it is with 2 coats. I have to say this was another polish that was easy to work with, so that’s a plus. It’s like a raspberry color when matted down.

This is Passion, a red/burgundy based purple. My third purple type of color. I don’t have many purple polishes because I don’t usually like the shades I find for my skin tone. I took a chance with 3 purple polishes, because I love Julie G! I’ve been watching her for at least a few years now. Again this color is very opaque with the first coat.

This is 2 coats and I really like this color! This polish was easy to work with as well.

I was really excited for Gelato in Venice! It’s goes along with the minty trend going on, although I’m not usually hot for trends. The 1 coat was fairly opaque, but you can see that the polish was kind of streaky :-/ So this one was not so easy to work with, but I still love the color and I will be more careful applying it.

With 2 coats I was able to even everything out. All I would have to to is clean up and I love the color pay off.

Shimmer Island would probably be best layered on top of something, but for the swatch I used it alone. So this is one coat, it’s a lime green and gold shimmer. I really like it.

With 2 coats I could pull of wearing it alone, but it in the sunlight the sheerness would show more.

Now on to the next three polishes. This one is 9 to 5, a baby peach color! Another one I was really excited for. It was a bit streaky, but not as much as Gelato in Venice.

With two coats everything was even out and I liked the color pay off. My finger look abnormally dark here, weird lighting I guess lol. Again I would clean it up and it would be good to go!

Now, this is Bikini, a hot pink/neon coral color; this is my second favorite after Dream in Pretty. This polish went on pretty well. At the top I messed up by not having enough polish no the brush, so that was human error lol

Came out nice and opaque with the second coat. I really love it!

The last one is called Kickin’ It. I liked the color of this polish. I don’t usually wear blue, because I want a light -medium blue. The shades I usually find look good in the bottle, but try to dark. Anywho this color is sheer with first coat with shimmers that look silver and a little bit green.

The 2nd coat looks really good and I like the color payoff! Its bright and fun, so I will definitely be wearing it this Spring and Summer!

Well, that’s all I purchased. I hope you guys enjoyed this post! ย You can purchase this polish at your local Rite-Aide or onย Jesse’s Girl Cosmetics, the distributor for her polishes!

Until next time ๐Ÿ™‚

Organization: Nail Polish Wall Rack

Published March 3, 2012 by MyEye4Fashion

Hey guys, I want to share my new nail polish storage with you. I saw this while watching one of my fav youtubers, Saaammage, review it, so have a look!

I have to admit that it is on the pricey side, for $60 plus $12.50 shipping, but as you can see its favorite color PINK! I bought it from Deco Polish Racks. They have a few other colors as well. This is supposed to hold approximately 60 bottles of nail polish, but can vary depending on the size of the bottle. As you can see I have a variety of nail polishes and all of them fit just fine, with the exemption of the Nicole by OPI. You can see on the second rack that it doesn’t sit perfectly, which isn’t a big deal to me. I really love it and its pretty sturdy. It has four pre-drilled holes so you can mount it on the wall.

I saw some plain acrylic nail racks on eBay, but I wasn’t too sure about the quality. I figured I would get this rack because I could choose the color I wanted and through watching the review on it and some others, I knew it was a quality product. The company is also supposed to come out with a rack that holds 90 bottles. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase and I still have some space in the rack, especially on the bottom because I put buffers and my MAC Fix+, which don’t belong there lol.

Once I get new recording equipment I will be able to show you guys my nail polish collection and more exciting stuff, so stay tuned for those updates!

I hope you guys enjoyed this post.

Until next time ๐Ÿ™‚
