Nail Friday - Julep Daisy

Happy Friday and Happy Holidays if you get some time off for Christmas!! :D  I am going to add a new feature to my blog called Nail Friday!  If I think of a cuter name for it I will change it!  The reason I want to add this new feature is because I have a painfully large collection of polish and I haven't been using it a lot lately yet I'm buying it like there's no tomorrow. :P

These posts will also be a little treat from me, because they'll be mainly photos and no babbling. :)  You'll have to excuse me because I'm not an artist and I'm not a very good painter... but I'd still love to share my love of polish with you and thus in turn get me using my colours!


Today's look features a colour called Daisy from the Julep collection.  it is described as a bright yellow cream.  To achieve this opaqueness took 2 coats.  It wasn't the best formula.  It was a bit runny. I find it's pretty hit and miss with Julep and their cream colours. 

I also find the description a bit misleading.  I was editing these photos and they were trying to go a bright yellow lemon.  The fact is, this is the most accurate depiction of the colour that I can get.  I would say it's more mustard in tone rather than lemon.  It still is a very pretty colour that I really like.


I added glitter to my ring finger.  I received this in a teeny vial from France.  It was in the French nail box called Kristal Box.  I managed to get quite a bit of glitter on it but as it dried tons and tons fell off.  I didn't try top coating it because the glitter is super chunky.  I was actually surprised that it stayed looking pretty full for a couple days.  Shortly after it was coming off pretty rapidly.

I'm not sure I'll use this glitter on nails again...it's just too chunky.  But, it worked great with the yellow and the look was fun!

Final thoughts: Not my favourite colour, but I may wear it again in the summer.  If I had just tested this colour I don't think I would have bought it. I still haven't found that perfect yellow for me!

Have a wonderful weekend! Hopefully you've finished all your Christmas shopping and you have a chance to relax a bit this weekend!
