My nails have never looked worse for wear, which you wouldn't think since out of the once a week posts I've been doing lately, they've all been related to nail polish. Guess I'm trying to hide the hideousness of it all with some bright and shnazzy colors that are sure to distract. I'm surprised I haven't talked about the Julie G line of nail polishes from Jesse's Girl Cosmetics. I got them almost a year ago at IMATS at 3 for $10 (tell me you could have resisted!) and they are such wonderful polishes! The line doesn't have a huge array of polishes but the ones that are included sure are fun and unique.
You can probably already guess that Mermaid's Tale is my favorite of the three I have here. It's a stunning and deep blue based polish, mixed in with various blue and green shimmers and holographic goodness. I seriously do not know the technical terms for the amazingness happening inside that bottle, but just now it's magical. I wore it for maybe 3 months straight after I bought it, haha. The next shade is Oh Em Gee, which is a color as obnoxious as it's name. I've got a little small spot for neons so when I saw this I was all over it. The formula on this one is a bit thinner and def. needs a shiny top coat to keep it from looking like a dull neon and it makes the streakiness a bit less apparent, but overall it's a great color, especially for the summer! Super distracting to the eyes if you talk with your hands, though, haha! The last shade I got was Cupcakes & Castles and the polish is as cute as it's name. The names are very spot on with their shades, which I love- adds a nice little quirk! Cupcakes & Castles is a semi-sheer baby pink polish with the tiniest of white and pink shimmers. It's very pretty on the nails and I can see it being great for work or if you're just sick of the more "out there" colors and need something softer. I have to admit though that sometimes I like this color better in the bottle than actually on my nails.
The formula on these polishes is super nice especially when you consider how budget-friendly they are. Aside from IMATS, I've only ever seen them at Rite Aid for about $3.99 a piece- super affordable. You won't be settling for quality. They last as long as your average polish would and it's def. worth a look to see if you can find a shade that you like. Highly, highly, recommend Mermaid's Tale- a unique polish that you're sure to love and not yet have in your collection. Being a mermaid, I'm a bit biased to this shade, but what can you do? ;D I look forward to seeing this brand at IMATS, and if I see some more shades that catch my eye, I may just go rogue from my wishlist!
