Flower wraps…

Recently I was contacted by Julep to see if I would like to participate in their Spring nail art contest. It seems a strange contest as there are no prizes!! But you do get your nails featured on their blog, hmmm, since I’ve never seen Julep polish for sale in Australia or got to try it…how about you just send me some polish to try please Julep!! Being a little short on time, I choose to use some nail wraps that I had stashed, to create a spring floral look.

I found these very sticky and easy to use. Although you need to line them up correctly because moving them once they were stuck was not an option.

I’ve been wearing them for a few days and they are lasting well. Unfortunately I have forgotten where I bought them from. Julep sells polish online so I might just have to bite the bullet and buy some, you can see their range here. Do any of you own Julep polishes and what do you think of them?

There are a few manis that I’ve done in the past that I’ve wanted to revisit and improve on them. My first punk nails leave alot of room for improvement. I cared or knew little about cleaning up around the cuticles, filing a decent shape with a similar length on each nail and lightboxes.

I also wanted much better looking studs, tartan and zippers. The tartan is a nail wrap, which I just haven’t made friends with yet, they crinkle, they rip, they don’t sit flat, ugh. The studs and zipper decals came from Born Pretty store and the anarchy symbol I’ve painted on with a silver striping brush. The thumb is Barry M croc effects over silver, I think by accident I have found a way to turn this polish into Leather Effects….stay tuned!


Thanks for looking!
