Okay, so here we go again. The Gorgeous Grape from Sunday didn’t last the day. I don’t know what it is about that polish, I can’t seem to wear it for 24 hours. It’s a pretty color, and right up my alley as far as the dirty, muddy kind of colors go. But I did remove it. Then I had a hard time deciding what I wanted until I came across this one.

So pretty and so bright. I am going to keep this on until it chips and I will include the results for my brand comparison ‘study’ I am working on.

This is Betty. She is sleeping and snoring with her head on her teddy bear. Sorry this is blurry, it was across the dining room and foyer into the living room. If I’d moved to get closer, she would have woke up. I wish I could add video of her snoring, it’s somewhat soothing. Maybe I should turn on the TV or a radio!

—I also want to thank all of you for your support in my recent decision to close my You Tube channel. I will not be returning in the capacity of making videos but I am still watching all my favorite people. Your kindness and friendship means so much to me. :)——

I have been looking for a green fingernail polish for quite some time. As I’m sure with you, I would buy a polish because it looked great at the store, but the second I got home with it, I knew it was not for me. Especially the green colors.

I found this one from Revlon called “Varnished”

As you can see this color suits my coloring.

I like this polish because the formula is smooth and goes on without any fuss. I had been using quite a few Essie polishes before this one. And we all know Essie can be quite fussy to work with. This Revlon went on great. In fact I had been used to doing such thin coats with the Essie that this one would probably go on with one normal coat. The picture is with 2 coats and no top coat.

I think it looks beautiful and it wears nice. What do you think?

There is a nail polish company from the northwest called Julep. I am liking this program more and more. What it is, is a monthly subscription service for nail polish! Remember Book of the Month, or Columbia House records? Like that only nail polish. Go to http://www.julep.com/?r=18436663. If you go to this site from this link I do get a referral point. With 2 referrals I will get a free month. 🙂
So go two times! Not really, just kidding!

At the website you will fill out a style quiz, from that they determine which kind of ‘maven’ you are. You can be an American Beauty (me), BoHo Glam, Bombshell (Jilly), Classic with a Twist (mom), or It Girl (Ashley). Then based upon that you get a box with 2 polishes, a hand cream and a couple of samples. All for $5, use the code INTRO. If you continue in the program it is $19.99 per month.
These polishes are what they call “4Free” meaning they are free of 4 of the worst chemicals used in polishes. I don’t know what they are, but some polishes say they are “3Free” ( Butter London, Gosh, Barry M, and Debra Lippmann). This company also donates $1 from each maven box to a charity based in helping women’s causes. So they are a good company and they are from Seattle! Love that!




Each month they will send you an email showing you what colors you will be getting. You can change to another box with different colors, skip a month, send to someone else or cancel. They are very easy to work with. If you do nothing then you will get a box with your maven type for that month. The It Girl maven is always just polish and you get 3 bottles of polish. Each month there is another item besides the 2 polishes. The first box has a hand cream, the 2nd box I got had a cuticle oil. Some boxes got a hair finish spray. They have body scrubs, this month they are giving a bottle of Argan oil.
Julep Nail Polish
I have received 2 colors I did not like, one was pale yellow and the other a rusty red, but I think they will be great on my toes! If you are interested check the web for codes because they have offered it recently for one penny. I just google coupon codes, there are several sites that you can get the code for. Let me know what you think! Thanks so much.
