LA Colors Jewel Tone

i was supposed to go grocery shopping today after riding... until Mama Pawlish remembered that the Commissary (military grocery store) is closed on Mondays. unnhhhh. it looks like i'll be going on Wednesday, as the weather is calling for rain to move in tomorrow night and all day Wednesday. why does it have to rain on riding lesson day?! *sigh*

i decided to add LA Colors Jewel Tone over yesterday's Julep Simone mani. it's a fairly sparse glitter with small teal and fuchsia pieces and a little bit of purple suspended in a clear base. i'm loving the combo, it reminds me of cupcakes! i used two coats to achieve this amount of coverage, it would take forever to get this one opaque on its own. i really like the colors in this glitter, my only complaint for this polish would have to be the smell. it has a strong vinegary scent that somehow is coming through the topcoat! speaking of topcoat, you'll definitely want to add one to bring out all the shinies :)

two coats Jewel Tone, one coat Seche Vite, all over my Julep Simone mani.

i was so happy to be back to Seche Vite after trying the Julep Freedom Polymer Top Coat yesterday... i had really high hopes for it, but it just doesn't blow my skirt up. in depth comparison coming soon! Ria :)


i'd love to hear from you guys! let me know if you have any questions or advice :)
