Surprise Inside!!

Hello everyone,

        I have a BIG surprise for all my reader's at the end of this post, so keep reading to find out what it is.

       But, first I have a few swatches to show you and a review of the swatches!

       Julep was kind enough to send me a free box to try out and review for all of you!  As many of you             know Julep is located in Seattle, so I was really excited to feature a product made in my state!  
I took their test and got It Girl and here is what was in it.


                                                                First up Julep Blake

   Blake is a soft yet bright sunny yellow creme.It reminds me of my daffodil's blooming in the spring!!
   Application was a bit difficult.When I first tried it, it was really thick so I put a little thinner in it. I think it was thick from sitting in my mail box and it was 86 degree's outside!
After I put the polish thinner in it, it was a bit better but was still a little streaky, but not as bad as other yellow's I have tried, so I had to use 3 coats to even it out.
Over all I like Blake and will use it again!

                                                                      Next is Claire

 Claire is a very pretty sky blue creme.The application on this one was really nice. Went on so smooth and was almost opaque in 1 coat! It's also a blue that doesn't stain!!
I love this color. It's perfect for Spring and Summer!
                                                         Last, but certainly not least is Morgan

            Morgan is my favorite out of the bunch. I love purple polishes. (thanks to my mom)
            Julep says Morgan is a frosty grape. I agree she is frosty but I don't think she is grape. I think she is GRRRR8-pe AHAHAHA get it?!?! Grrrrr8-pe!! I crack myself up!!
Anywho, application was great (hahaha). And even though it is a frost there isn't much visible brush stroke's.
As you can see there's some blue and magenta shimmer in there too which gives it more depth.
I love this one and will most likely use it again...and again.....and again :).

Here is some nail art I did using Blake and Claire!

                                             My favorite blanket that I based my design from.
