Topped It With A Bow

To continue the pink, I decided to finally show you the pink from my first Julep Maven box.  As you have probably seen on other nail blogs, this is from my August "American Beauty" box.  Cameron is a lovely creme pink.  The application was nice and easy.  I did 2 coats, but if you are a better painter than me you could possibly get away with just one. As much as I liked the color, I wanted to add a little something.  I decided a bow would be pretty on just my ring finger.  I used Orly Liquid Vinyl for the bow.  The stamp image that I used has lines that make it go across the whole nail, but I just wanted the bow so I attempted to not stamp the sides.  I did much better on my right hand then my left hand, but with more practice I'm sure I could do better.


Taken outside. This is my left hand bow.

Take inside with the flash.  This is my right hand :)  It doesn't make an appearance that often.
Overall, I was really happy with the way this came out.  Just cute enough!  Now, I know that lots of people had issues with Julep and the Maven program, but I have been pretty happy with their services so far.  And I really like their polishes.  I only have 4 polishes and the base coat (I skipped the September box), but I have only paid $5 for all those polishes.  I'm not sure how long I'm going to keep my membership.  Guess I will just have to wait and see what they want to send me next :)

The bow is actually a stamp BM56. It's more of a French tip stamp but I just used the bow part.
