I started today with a simple mani using Julep’s Catrina from this month’s Cityscape Collection. Catrina is a bright yellow creme polish that Julep describes as ‘marigold,’ which is an accurate description of this yellow. I don’t often like yellow nail polishes on me, but I really like this one! It was a bit streaky when applied, and it took 3 coats before I thought it looked mostly even. It dried rather quickly, though, so it wasn’t so time-consuming to apply 3 coats of this polish. I used base coat for the photo, but no top coat.
I quite like how this turned out, don’t you? 🙂 Later in the day I added some accent nails to this manicure using a multi-colored shard glitter from Forever 21’s beauty line, Love and Beauty. I wish I could tell you a name for this polish, but they have this terrible habit of calling many of their polishes the same thing. I think the label calls it ‘multi-glitter,’ but I know I have at least one other polish from their line with exactly the same ‘name’ on the label. I don’t really recommend purchasing Love and Beauty polishes unless you see one that is super unique or that you just can’t live without. I’ve bought a few and they tend to dry out extremely quickly. Although this one didn’t suffer that fate, it did take a long time to dry (which is also annoying, am I right?).
Do you like this type of glitter? I always call it ‘trashy glitter’ in my head because it looks to me like someone put the glitter factory’s trash in some nail polish and sold it. 🙂
