Julep - Blake and Color Mates - Glitter Glam

It's Wednesday, halfway through the work week; whoohoo!!!

Today I am wearing one of my new Julep polishes that I got from Essie in her giveaway. Here are some shots of the lovely Blake.

 Polishes Used:
-OPI - Nail Envy
-Julep - Blake

For my first Julep polish, I really liked this. I don't have a yellow creme in this color and it was completely opaque in 2 coats.

However, since it is not springtime or a Steeler's day, I decided to spice this up a little with Color Mates - Glitter Glam.

Polishes Added:
-Color Mates - Glitter Glam
-NYC - Matte Me Crazy

I really like how this glitter looks overtop of Blake, however, this application was HORRIBLE. I bought the glitter in a 3 pack at Big Lots, and I guess I will have to say that I got my money's worth. This glitter had awful application and was like painting boogers onto my nails (sorry for the gross comparison). However, the look of the finished matte mani almost makes me forget about the application issues. 

Have you ever had a glitter that sucked? Did you keep it and try to salvage it or did you just throw it away (like I want to)?


  1. Aww Blake is so gorgeous - pastel yellows makes my knees go weak :)

  2. Cute color! Makes me think of spring (:

  3. That's a great combo! The yellow is cute by itself too :)

  4. It's a pretty polish, and I love the glitter top!!! :D
