I started out the month wearing a really cool color combination. A Coral color and a blue color, and I really enjoyed the way this color combo looked. What I did was painted my middle finger and thumb on each hand with the Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear nail polish in the color in Blue me away. It's a bright blue cream finish polish that I just love. And then on my pointer finger, ring finger and pinkie I went with one of my all time favorite nail polishes, Elf's Coral Dream. Then, to sort of tie the whole look together I did a random little dotted pattern on my ring finger over the coral with the bright blue. It was a fun little mani! Coral and bright blue are some of my favorite colors, and I liked the color combination a ton! I wasn't crazy about the random design I did, but I still liked this manicure a lot.
After I was through with the coral and blue look, I went for something quite a bit more understated. I painted all of my nails with another one of my all time favorite nail polishes, Wet n Wild Megalast in the color I need a refresh-mint. It's just a gorgeous, tiffany box blue color. Very light and pretty. I love the megalast polishes a lot, because they are super easy to apply. I love the formula and I especially love the brush. Then, to add a bit more interest, I did a subtle glitter accent nail on my ring finger and thumb. I just applied one thin coat of Revlon's whimsical which is a sheer milky blue base with large, sparse chunks of pink and blue glitter. It was a very pretty combo!
At the same time that I did that sheer, pretty mani, I went ahead and did my pedi for the month. I only paint my toe nails about once or twice a month. This time, I chose a Julep polish that I also received in my introductory box. It's a bright coral shade in the color Sasha. You can't really tell in the photo below, but this color made me look so tan! I could hardly believe it! My feet almost looked dirty at first they looked so tan! So this is a polish I will most definitely be wearing around the pool in the summer time! I liked the formula, okay, it was a bit thick, so not the easiest to work with. As I am using more and more Julep polishes I am finding that no two polishes is exactly alike as far as application goes. But I am having fun trying them out!
A couple days after I did the sation manicure, I received my second Julep box in the mail, which was the sea salt mystery box. One of the polishes inside was so pretty that I immediately took off what I was wearing and applied it. The color is Julep's Maria and it is a gorgeous rose gold metallic polish with a really high shine. I put this on, and I swear it looked like liquid metal. Almost like I had coated my nails in pink tin foil. I LOVED it. This is another one that was a bit thick and harder to work with than I would like, but it was just absolutely stunning. I felt like it went really well with my skin tone and matched everything in my wardrobe. I think this is definitely my favorite of the Julep's I have tried so far.
And that's it for my polish picks for the month of April! I am so ready for lots more fun mani's and pedis in the month of May and you can bet I will be back to share them with you! Hope you guys enjoyed this and I will see ya later!
