Nail Polish Lottery Club ~ Week 40

Posted on: October 13, 2013

Avery from Julep was my pick for Week 40 of the Nail Polish Lottery Club. I may have cheated just a bit, as the number chosen this week was 49. Number 49 on my un-tried polish list was Julep Laura, which is a dull army green. Right next to it was Avery, as you can see a bright pink. So, since it is October, and as we all know October is Breast Cancer Awareness month I decided to use Avery in honor of all those afflicted with this terrible disease. I’m sure you will all forgive me this one little “cheat”. Although I am not a fan of Julep the company, I do think their nail polishes are very nice, especially the cream finishes. I do like my choice of Avery for Week 40 of the # NPLClub.

The formula for Avery was very thin and after 3 coats the dreaded VNL was present and we can’t have that. So I used a Rimmel one coat color, in Posh Pink and when that was dry I added just 1 coat of the Avery , and voila! problem solved. I did not add a top coat as I like the finish of this bright pink, not quite matte but not real shiny either, it’s different and you all know I like different. This will definetly be in my rotation of polishes to wear as I am pleasantly surprised by Avery, even though it is from Julep. 👿

Completely off topic but I wanted to show you my new centerpiece for my dining room table. I can’t remember where I saw this idea but I loved it and it was very easy to do. I cut the top off the pumpkin, cleaned the seeds out and then I used a red solo cup for the vase to hold the flowers. I think it looks great and it will be easy to change out the flowers, although I’ve had these flowers for a week today and they still look good. I think next time I will cut the flowers about an inch shorter than these, and I think I will use 2 bunches of flowers instead of one, I think that will look a lot better.
What do you think?

Wow, this has to be my favorite of all the manicures you have shown us this year. Even better than the green and blue ones 😉
I also love your centerpiece, it is such a nice idea, I have to try and I could fit it in our kitchen somewhere 🙂


Love the centerpiece. I would have never thought to do something like that.


Beautiful mani and love the center piece, very fun and creative.

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
