Nail of the Week 11/3 & 11/10

Greetings, friends!

It's time for my Nail of the Week! And yes, it's a little too summery for the weather we've been having there. Let me explain:

I'm hugely compulsive about my nail polish. I legitimately have a list of my untried nail polishes in order (for the most part) of when I acquired them. I wear them in that order unless there's a special occasion or I need to move the order for the next point. I also alternate so I'm making sure I'm not wearing two warm, two cold, or two neutral colors back to back.

Over the summer, I got totally off track, so I'm a little behind on my summer colors, and I'm just now getting to this color. Next week I'll get to my fall colors. I don't have nearly as many of those, so by Christmas I will be into winter colors.

Yes, I realize this makes me crazy. I don't care!

For last week's NOTW I'm wearing Julep's Courteney which I believe I got in my October Maven Box. I accented a little with Kiss Nail Art stickers. I actually love the girly simplicity of this look. I feel like I need to start embellishing a little. I'm getting bored with one color looks.

This week I'm wearing Julep's Nan which is a really nice dusty red (and hey! It matches my bed!) I generally shy away from having RED nails, but I like that this is faded enough that I feel comfortable. Plus, it's great for fall! Excuse my short nails, I got a little excited with the clippers. I am really impressed by this color. I feel like sometimes Julep polishes are hit and miss formula-wise, but this one is amazing. It could be a one coater (though I'm wearing two) and it just goes on so smoothly. My nails tend to be very ridged and bumpy from years of biting them (especially my thumbnail on my left hand) and you can't even see it under this polish! I wish I had more nail to show off this beautiful color. Definitely a thumbs up from me!


  1. I like the green a lot! Even if it is supposed to be a "summer" color- I love the flowers on them. Green can be for fall too, right?

  2. Ooo I love the Nan! That's so pretty!

  3. That is awesome. I really want to try julep but I just can't seem to justify spending 20 on 3 when I could go to Walmart and get 4/5 or Dollar tree and get 20.
