Julep: Mystery 1, 2, 3 & Nail Savvy: "Gold Glitter"

Goodness. Ok, good news first! My bank finally came through and I managed to get my A England order in just in time for the promo! :D It hasn't shipped yet, but when it does I'll finally have Guinevere, Ascalon, Iseult and.... St George! Which will leave me with 15 more to collect. Except that there have been murmerings of a new collection in the works... She never slows down.

Bad news, unfortunately, surrounds today's pictures. *pleh* It's cold and overcast (again!) and I've been so tired lately. So they're not the best. Some points are helpful, but I still wish they were a little better.

Starting off with Julep Mystery 2 named Forest Glen by my friend Barry:

This is all one coat. All. One. Coat? So why is my index finger so much more sparse than the rest? One of the great mysteries.

Ooooh, up next is a good one. Mystery 3 named Keilani by Holly. Keilani means "gorgeous" and "royal".

Also one coat, but much more consistent.

Lovely! Next a quick break from Juleps to sneak in the last of my Nail Savvy polishes. This one doesn't have a name (as far as I could find) so I'm calling it "Gold Glitter".

Again, one coat. The coverage is far better than I expected. Speaking of coverage, this final Julep would have had me eating my words... had I ever actually spoken them.

Julep Mystery 1 renamed Starship Azure by Barry. I layered it over Keilani because I was so sure it was going to be sheer. This is one coat.

I applied two coats of Starship Azure to my thumb just to show you how it looks on it's own.

Seriously not bad! Can hardly see any VNL at all. O_o Impressive.

Now, I'm not going to get my hopes up about winning. I know there are some seriously talented artists out there. Still, it made me happy to see this on facebook yesterday.

Awesome! :D They like me. hehehehehe

So tomorrow is WTF Wednesday... I did some "have to get these swatched" ones today so at least I don't have that pressure. Hrm.... *shrugs* Hope everyone's having a great week. :D See y'all tomorrow.


  1. Mystery 3 is really nice, it reminds me of Barry m blue plum! I think you're sale shopping rubbed off on me....I bought 6 Illamasqua polishes last night :D

  2. The gold glitter is so nice. Good luck for the competition;)

    1. Thank you! :D I was looking over the other entries and some of them are REALLY good. I'll be as surprised as anyone if I win.
