I got my September box of Julep in Boho Glam. I couldn’t remember which box I picked for this month, so it was a nice surprise! I am in love with Tatiana, the orange nail polish. I think it’s perfect for October (even though it’s in the September box) – what do you guys think? The other nail polish looks black in the picture, but it’s just an extremely dark blue. It’s so moody, I love it! I can’t use these polishes yet until I catch up from my other nail polishes from this summer.

I am relatively new to being a Julep Maven, but so far I like it. I love their packaging. Each box was packaged specifically for each customer depending on what they picked. I also think the amount of product you get for the money you spend each month is good. This month I got 2 nail polishes, a full-sized package of bare face cleansing oil, and a small packet of nail polish removing pads. Anywhere else all of this probably would’ve ran me around $30. You also get points after each subscription, and you can use those points to get free things like another nail polish, another beauty product, etc. It’s not hard to accrue points either… just after a couple of months of being on their subscription you should have enough for a free nail polish! If you’re into beauty products like I am, I recommend Julep.

Kennedy Sugar Rush

Hey everyone! So just a little background info – my name is Nicole and I’m pursuing my B.F.A. of Interior Design. I’m interested in all things design, beauty, and art related so I decided to start a blog to document my interests and to also help other people find unique personal styles, whether it be in fashion, beauty, or in their home.

I decided to do my first blog post on a little nail art design. The design is nothing fancy, but I think the red-orange and tan colors are a unique combination. Personally I’ve always struggled with red as a color, probably because when I was 4 I ate too many cherry popsicles and got really sick so ever since then I’ve struggled with anything cherry flavored or remotely red in color. Lately I’ve been trying to add more red to my wardrobe, even if it is just by adding red-orangue hues, and I’ve been taking baby steps to do that.

I chose to use Julep – Kennedy and Julie G – Sugar Rush together to do a diagonal pattern with polk-a-dots. I hadn’t used either nail polishes before, but each one went on nicely and I will probably use them again in the future. Kennedy by Julep is a beautiful tan color however it looks a bit more yellow on the nail than it does in the bottle. That doesn’t really bother me since I think the yellowness of the color goes well with the red-orange diagonal. Sugar Rush by Julie G is a dark orange, with red undertones and gold flecks.  It isn’t supposed to get a top coat because it’s apart of the Frosted Gum Drops collection at Rite Aide and it is supposed to be a textured nail polish, but I had to because my nails chip too easily since I work in a restaurant. I think it looks just as beautiful with a top coat on.

I couldn’t resist wearing my snake ring I found at Old Navy earlier this summer. I don’t know if it is still there or not, since I found it in the clearance section.

What do you guys think? What are your favorite colors to use on nails or in your wardrobe?
