Somebody’s got a case of the Monday’s. And that somebody is me. In a bit of a St. Patty’s hangover… and since I don’t actually consume adult beverages its more of a fun hangover. So it’s only fitting to post my fun St. Patty’s mani on this mundane Monday.
I’m not usually a fan of green on my nails, since they’re long I sometimes feel like greens and blues look gawdy but when I got my Julep Maven Box this month I KNEW green was SO going to happen. I’m wearing Adrianna, the pastel green and Lucky the emerald and gold glitter. I also added on the matte topcoat this month to my maven box so I used that over Adrianna. Then of course what’s a festive mani without a festive ring!?! Sporing my color-of-the-year emerald green ring from mark. This is one of my all time favorite rings from mark. and perfect for adding a statement! Shop the Serious Rock Ring ($18) at my eboutique: http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger I have to say I was really excited with the March offerings from Julep. The theme was playful, sidewalk chalk colors, offering a wide range of pastels, perfect for spring! To get the sidewalk chalk look they recommended adding the matte top coat. This was my first venture with matte and I have to say I didn’t hate it. It def showed the imperfections though, so next time I’ll have to try to be as close to perfect as I can and allow the proper amount of dry time. Usually when I do my nails I sit still for like 2 min then I start back up and usually nick a few.
Also in my Julep Bombshell Box for March was the Rock Star hand cream. This is what i was probably most excited about because my hands are a disaster! I mean just look at my posts… you can see how old man winter has took a toll on them. The Rockstar hand cream is certainly a rockstar! I’ve noticed a difference in the extreme dry patches I have between my finger and my cuticles look a bit better too! It claims to last through 2 hand washings and I can vouch it does! I just need to stay on it and keep this bad boy on my hands!
