Sheer no-chip base color makes this design just neutral enough. Then there is that spot of gold to subtly jazz up my design.  Winking smile


My Lazy Christmas

Merry Christmas y’all!!  Smile

I used up all my energy on everyone else’s Christmas manicures……

…so I ended up with a real lazy manicure for myself.  Nonetheless, I am still feeling festive. lol

Now I’m looking forward to some after-Christmas sales! This holiday season just flew by!

I’m a Bombshell

“Sexy and sensual, [your] style is abundant with playful prints, flirtatious cuts, and saturated hues…” 

That’s what Julep said… and I’m going to go ahead and take their word for it.  I agree.Winking smile

I finally took the plunge and became a Julep Maven.

Julep – “Eva” & “Sienna”


The formulation is incredible.  And I love the colors in my first Maven Box. I could get used to this polish.  Quickly. The foil polish “Sienna” might be the best and shiniest foil I’ve ever used, with the simplest application and perfect opacity.  This bottle will get emptied soooooo fast.  I could wear this all the time.

I haven’t yet tried the Pedi Crème, but if it’s anything like the polish, I’m in for a treat.  The directions boast “noticeable results in just 1 to 2 uses.” I’ll let you know what I think!

The picture on the informational materials (the leopard platform heeled sandals) most definitely swayed my design plan.  CLEARLY!  lol


I already love being a Julep Maven!

Yeah, go ahead and become one too Smile. Tell them I sent you.  lol

The Leopard Struggle

I have been sooo scared to try a leopard design.  It’s been on my list of manicures to do for a WHILE.

…then came Audrey Smile. She inspired me.  Her leopard design came out SOOOO nice (pic)…. I felt challenged after she seemed surprised that I was scared…. so I finally worked up some nerve and…..

My first leopard design.

China Glaze “Papaya Punch”
w/acrylic paint design


I love this orange. I’m already a huge fan of orange…. I heart this color so much.  I had to “test out” the design first.  lol.  Still hesitant and SCARED!

After it came out okay… I tested out the rest of my nails.

I like it.  I’ll try it again.  Definitely.
