Julep Hayden

back to beautiful weather here at the beach! i didn't make it to the oceanfront today, maybe tomorrow... hopefully :)

today we are looking at Julep Hayden, a light orangey peach cream. this color is not a true neon, but it is super bright! my first thought was... orange sherbert! (which immediately led to being depressed about not having any orange sherbert) it looks a little weird on me, but that's okay, i'm sure i'll wear it anyway. i'm thinking this polish will look its absolute best on really dark skin tones... it gives my super fair skin a yellow cast (but again... that's never stopped me from wearing something i like before!). to give you an idea of my skin tone, i always have to buy the lightest foundation a brand makes, and many (even high end companies) don't make anything even close to being light enough, which is why i use Lancome. (a little plug for my favorite makeup brand!) Hayden's formula is just like the previous Juleps, two coats for full opacity... but a weird formula. it's somehow thick and runny at the same time... not sure how that's possible. while Juleps dry fairly shiny on their own, the polishes' best friend is Seche Vite... anything the slightest bit uneven is smoothed over and given a delicious mirror shine.

one coat Seche Base, two coats Hayden, one coat Seche Vite.

i hope you are all having a great week! Ria :)
