The Week(s) in Nails, September 29

I was away last weekend (Vegas, baby!) and didn't have internet access to post anything. So, with my apologies, here are the past two weeks in nails.

Sally Hansen Sugar Coat in Red Velvet

Two coats.  No top coat, no base.  I wore this for 2 days, I like it a lot.  It's not as uniform of a texture as OPI's Liquid Sand, and it's not glittery either, but it's still a nice polish.  Not bad for getting it on clearance at Target ;)

China Glaze Dress Me Up and Julep Jane

China Glaze Dress Me Up was part of the Hunger Games "Colors from the Capitol" Collection.  I believe this was the color that was originally to be named after Prim.  It's a dusty mauve color that gives almost enough coverage in 1 coat, so I did two.  Juelp Jane is a full coverage gold and rose gold glitter named after Julep's founder.  Two coats, wore it for 2 days.

China Glaze Dress Me Up, Zoya Jules, and Julep Jane

A few of my nails had chipped after 2 days, so I replaced one of the glitter nails on each hand with two coats of Zoya Jules.  It's a shimmery champagne color, and I probably should have done another coat.  I wore this variation for 2 more days.

While I was in Las Vegas, I wore Julep Lynn.  It lasted 5 (!) days without much noticeable chipping.  No pictures, sorry.

I had naked nails for a day when I got back, and then wore this for the next 3 days:

OPI Russian Navy and Julep Erica

2 coats of OPI Russian Navy, with one coat of Julep Erica (the New Years Mystery Box surprise glitter) over my ring finger.


  1. Gasp! You had naked nails for a day? What is the world coming to!! =P I love the gold in the second to last picture: zoya jules. I usually don't like sparkle polishes but that one just sings to my heart.

    I channelled you yesterday and bought a new polish! (That cost me more than my usual $0.99) I got a fall color from Essie. They just make such pretty neutral colors I couldn't resist, even with that 8 dollar price tag.

  2. i know :( I had naked nails again this past Thursday! And I bit them all to nubs :(

    Jules isn't my favorite, but I had to buy it for the name (and it was on clearance at Ulta). It wears pretty well, I think I'm just too pale to wear it as a full mani.

    I'm so proud of your new polish :) Good job! Send me a picture.
