NOTD~Julep Charlotte

Posted on: March 19, 2012

This Is Charlotte from Julep. This was in the It Girl for March maven box, along with Jodie and Melissa. Jodie is the deep rose-y reddish color (was also in the St. Pat’s Mystery Box) and Melissa is a duo chrome, off white color. I like both Charlotte and Jodie, but Melissa not so much. I put Melissa over the Charlotte and thought it would be really pretty but it dulled the color way down. Check out my you tube video, I showed a swatch there so you can see exactly what I’m talking about. I am going to try using the Melissa as a base coat and then put a cream on top and see if that does anything. The duo chrome shimmer in the bottle looks very pretty, but I find it odd the way it dulls a color.

This is my Julep wheel of gorgeousness, so, so pretty. I think of all my wheels, I have four, the Julep is the prettiest. (I marked on the wheel Jodie, one is normal and the other has Melissa on top. I hope you can see what I’m talking about.)

These are my wheels (the Julep one was not complete in this pic). They are, starting on the left: my mini Sephora by OPI, then Julep on top, on the bottom OPI, Revlon,China Glaze & CHANEL, then on the right Sally Hansen, Essie and one of-s. I hate to admit it, but I had fun making the wheels. Do you think maybe I might need a life? Oh well!
What did you think of my half and half manicure I had on last week, pink and orange? I liked it so much I’m going to do it again. What colors do you think I should combine for my next half and half? Please leave me a comment and let me know. I’m thinking the turquoise and orchid from my minis collection, or maybe the blue and green from the OPI Holland collection. I’m hoping to get called for a job interview this week so I’m keeping my nails “normal” for the moment, but next week I want to do another half and half, I got so many compliments, you wouldn’t believe. It was funny though because across the board, women loved the look and men hated it. What’s up with that?

Julep is still one penny. Go to http://www.julep.com/?R=18436663 use code MARCHINTRO. I do get a referral point if you go through this link. Two referrals and I get a free box. If you don’t want me to have that (:() then go to http://www.julep.com and use the same code.

Betty’s Blog

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
