Review // Julep's Luxe Care Hand Crème

I'm always on the lookout for a good hand cream so I was excited to try out Julep's intensive care offering when it was available as an add-on a while ago. Periodically my hands dry out so much that it almost hurts. And nothing makes a good mani look bad like a backing of cracked, dry skin. Ew, right?

Check under the cut to see if I think this "luxe" moisturizer is a hit or a miss!

Julep has some awesome new skin care beauties for us this month - another new oil cleansing product (this time for your whole body!) a new cuticle moisturizer and some great new polish shades in a variety of finishes. Check under the cut for your first look at The Drenched Collection!

Pastel and Glitter Starburst Mani with Nail Vinyls

Glitter Starburst Manicure featuring Julep and Nail Vinyls

Boom! Pow! Starburst designs! That's how I feel when I use these vinyls on my nails. Using nail vinyls is a quick and easy way to jazz up an older mani and cover any tip wear, and that's what I did today. Check under the cut for more info about what I used and how quick it was to pop this look on!

Sailor Moon Galaxy Stamping with Born Pretty Store BP-06 Plate

Sailor Moon stamping manicure with Born Pretty Store plate BP06

Today I have a mani for you that I put together a while ago but just forgot to share! I don't know if you remember my last Sailor Moon design but I've been on a bit of a Sailor Moon kick this year. There are so many great stamping plates out there that make fandom manicures a breeze, and I love being able to share them with you. Check under the cut for more info about this look and info about where you can get the plate for yourself!

Throwback Thursday (Vol 7)

Happy Thursday! Today I have a look back at some swatches and art from this time last year. I really like a lot of the looks I'm re-sharing this week, and I'd really love to hear which of them is your favourite (and if you remember any of them)!

30 Days of Colour June Challenge!

It's June, and we've decided to do another round of the 30 Days of Colour Challenge! The ladies came up with some awesome prompts this time around and I'm hoping I can be more active with them! The sharpie marble and radial gradient are already on my radar!

If you haven't participated before, this is a really chill and fun challenge with lots of ways to participate.
Want to just do swatches? No problem - the first column is for you!
Want to do nail art? Awesome - can't wait to see what you do with the second column!
Want to challenge yourself and combine both prompts for a given day? Go for it!

- Challenge starts June 1st and everyone is welcome to participate! All link-ups are open until the end of the month so it's okay if you need to play catch-up!
- We'll be using the hashtag #30DaysofColourChallenge across social media (yes there is a "u" - I'm Canadian!) 
- This is a casual challenge so you can take part in as many or as few fills as you want.   
- Feel free to grab the graphics above or below to use in your posts or to share across social media - the more the merrier!
