December Julep Maven Box

  Today my December box from Julep arrived in my mailbox.  I was more excited about the “extra” product than the actual polish in this box.   That hardly ever (IF ever) happens.   As usual, the box was packaged lovely.  The box was silver this month instead of the regular black.  Inside it had […]

Rings of Plum Power

  I am apparently on a purple(ish) polish kick.  I intended to grab a more berry colored polish but instead picked up this one thinking it was something else.  Oh well.  I still like the over all manicure.   I started by applying my base coat (Sally Hansen Hard as Nails).  Then I applied two […]

June Julep Maven Box (Boho Glam)

  It has been quite some time since I opted in to receive my monthly Julep Maven Box.    I have gotten to a point where I have quite a large number of polishes and therefore, have become more picky about what I purchase.  I don’t want repeating colors and that can easily happen with […]

Low Maintenance Nude Polish

No matter how I type that title, it sounds like I’m talking about things…other than polish!  YIKES!  ANYWAY!  I got the itch to put some polish back on my nails after about a week without.  As I’ve mentioned, no way (at least for the time being) will I be able to keep up with my […]

Polish Absence

  Holy moly!  It has been a very long time.  I haven’t worn polish in well over a year now.  I had decided to stop polishing my nails towards the end of my pregnancy as I was exhausted and just didn’t have it in me to dedicate those days to sitting and polishing and changing […]

May Julep Maven Box

  Long time no blog post!  As some of you may know, I took quite a long break from any blogging.  At the tail end of my pregnancy I wasn’t feeling great and needed to focus on my family as well as myself.  After the birth of my baby, I felt like I just needed […]
