Julep Melanie

still a sickie today, so i missed my riding lesson. so that's a bummer... but i am starting to feel better! my mom suggested pumping my body full of Echinacea, which an herbalist had recommended to her in the past for getting over colds. i'm so glad it seems to be working!

today's polish is Julep Melanie, a medium-light blue frost. i think they were going for a chrome finish, but to me, it's still awfully brushstrokey to be a true chrome. the formula isn't my favorite, you need to be really careful to keep it from glooping on too much... and of course, you have to make sure you keep the brushstrokes straight! i used two coats for full opacity. it wanted to dry really bubbly, but adding a coat of Seche Vite helped smooth everything out and make it shiny. you can still see some, but they are much more obvious in the photo than in real life.

Happy Wednesday! Ria :)
