I know, I know...it's been a few days since I've posted - a week to be exact :( Do you ever go through slumps where you just don't feel motivated? That's me right now! What helps you through it?
Today's mani features Shenae by Julep. It is described as a pastel mint green opalescent shimmer. It was hard for me to capture the shimmer on my nails but you can see it in the bottle shot. As to the formula, I found it a bit thick and borderline goopy, and therefore took longer to dry. If you have short nails you can get full opacity in 2 coats but it took me 3.
I do think the color is soft and pretty and goes great with gold accents as seen below. I used Glamorous from Fergie's Wet N Wild line and placed the hex glitter where I wanted it with the help of a toothpick. I draw like a twelve year old so hand painting a design is out the window for me. This is as easy as it is cute. I love the way this turned out!
Best investment of the week:
I went to a community garage sale last weekend and scored some AMAZING deals. I even got a vaccum for $10. But by far my favorite purchase was the earrings below for $1! Mint is hot this season and I love that these earrings are simple but chic. Whats even better is that the earrings perfectly coordinate with this manicure and my favorite ring! The stars have aligned :)
