FEBRUARY JULEP

It's that time again.  I got another Julep box.  I know it sounds silly, but I really enjoy getting a little "gift" in the mail every month.  It doesn't cost that much, the products are very good, and it isn't a bill!  I thought I would show you what I got in this month's box.




I ordered the orchid colored nail polish, the lip gloss and the blush/highlighter.  Julep always gives you a little gift and this time it was an extra glitter nail polish that I really like.

The one thing that I ordered and forgot to take a picture of was some heart-shaped nail decals.  I thought it would be cute for Valentine's Day.  I got some white ones and some red ones.  I was excited to use them and as soon as I polished my nails I put them on.  

But the white hearts on my wine-colored nails didn't look all that great to me.  I was to cover them with a couple of coats of clear polish to protect them.  I didn't have any clear, so I put a very light gold over them.  That turned the base coat a weird color and eventually peeled right off of the decal.  One of the decals then got caught on something at work and came off.  So I took off the other one and that was the end of that.

I have thought of using them as sort of a stencil.  I would put a light color on the nails, put the decal on, then paint a darker color over everything.  When it was dry I would peel the decal off and have a lighter heart painted on the nail.  We will see.  I'm always experimenting.

So here is the nail color I chose for February.  It is called "Rochelle".  I really like it a lot.  I've gotten so many compliments on it.  One nail got messed up but oh well...

 
Now it's off to get ready for another day.  I have to go to the dentist first, then run to ShopRite to get a birthday cake and cards for two of the ladies at work, and then a whole day of wonderful library experiences.  

At least I am taking tomorrow off to take Joe to an appointment at the V.A. Hospital.  I'm hoping to get a lot done around the house before we go since the appointment is smack in the middle of the day.

Then in the evening it's Bible Study.  It's going to be a busy day.
