Julep Clara

my riding lesson got moved to tomorrow, but my friend invited me to lunch instead! we headed over to a local farmer's market and got these amazing, huge strawberries... California fruits and veggies are so much better than other places in the country for sure. we also went to an adorable Hawaiian themed restaurant for cocktails and a light lunch... i had the best Bahama Mama :D

today's polish is Julep Clara from my May 2013 Julep Maven 'It Girl' box! it's a light peach creme with orange undertones, i thought this would go very mannequin hands on me, but surprisingly it's bright enough to not give that look at all. it just gives a very fresh, fun chic vibe. the formula is nice, streaky on coat one, but evens out nicely and is completely opaque on coat two! it dries glossy on its own, but like most polishes i need a topcoat to help dry it! i have no idea what is up with my skin chemistry that keeps polish from drying?! so weird.

two coats Clara, one coat Seche Vite.

i'm planning on doing the other two May Julep polishes over the next two days, so be sure to check back! Happy Friday! Ria :)


  1. Wow, when I saw this during the selection period I thought it'd be sheer! Another one to add to the ever-growing Julep wishlist.


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