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.
