Toxic Green with Grey Tips

Today I've got a simple look to share-- neon green and grey, with black accents. 

Cell phone office picture = poor lighting

Have you ever just felt the urge to wear a color? That happens all the time for me and is what inspired this look... I saw neon green and was like "YES! That's the one!" Anywhos... here's some neon green with grey tips and a sparkly black outline (and black heart rhinestones, cuz why the heck not?!).

Mattified Glitter featuring Julep's Ciara

Hello! I did what I swore I wasn't going to do and ended up trying Julep back in the fall. I got my three bottles of nail polish and was excited to see what the hype was about, so I swatched up Ciara and topped it with some glitter.

Ciara is a dark, burnt cranberry color with a subtle teal shimmer. Unfortunately, you can't see the shimmer in the picture, but it was noticeable in-person. Application was eh... streaky on the first coat and still streaky on the second. A third, thin coat evened everything out. 

So what can I say about Julep? I'm not that impressed. The bottles are cute, but the shape makes holding onto the brush a pain and they are way too small (especially to justify the price!). I wasn't that impressed with the formula either. For a brand that seems marketed toward luxury, this wasn't spectacular. Unsubscribed!
