Julep Bess

skipped the barn yesterday because both my dog Jasper and me needed to get blood drawn. too bad we couldn't get it done at the same place! i made an early appointment so i could leave him in the car while i had mine done, then head over to the vet for his. my other dog Jewels SCREAMED when we left... i'm thinking that's the first time she's ever been left home alone! i came home and spent the rest of the day with them, she definitely needed reassuring. *sigh* puppies.

today's polish is Julep Bess from my June 2013 Maven It Girl box. it's a robin's egg blue creme which has a hint of turquoise to it that really makes it pop. i was a bit iffy with formula... you have wipe the brush off or it gloops all over, but if you wipe it just a little too much it's a streaky mess. definitely not the easiest polish to work with. most nails have two coats, but a couple needed an extra due to streaks. it dries insanely glossy on its own, but on me it takes forever to dry so i still had to use topcoat.

two coats Bess, one coat Seche Vite.

i have another horse show this weekend, but it's a the barn i ride at so no traveling! i'm learning yet another dressage test for it... i hope i don't start getting them confused... at least it's a fairly simple one! Ria :)


  1. Hate when a pretty polish is a nightmare to work with! This blue is stunning!
