Julep Hayden, Some Sequins, & A Comparison

Here are some pictures of Julep Hayden!  Described as a neon peach creme, this is another almost-one-coater  (I did 2 here).  These pictures are with no topcoat . As you can see, it dries to an almost matte/rubbery type finish:


  This is definitely a unique color. I cannot say I own anything like it!


For a fleeting moment, I though maybe this was close to Essie's A Crewed Interest.  Turns out they are not even from the same planet:

Yep. It's def a 'nope'.

AND THEN, I decided that I wasn't done.  Maybe it's because the boys are out of school and my days aren't as scheduled as usual, but I've been overdosing on nail art.  Here's what I used:

 These little packets are from Sally's. I thought they were great because they allow you to try many different embellishments in one set.  The crappy part is, they are not resealable, so once you open up a section you need to figure out where you are gonna store those suckers.  I used an empty mineral container that I cleaned out:


Pardon the low lighting in this pic, but I wanted the iridescence to really show up!

I love how these look, but you can "feel" them (much like gritty glitter) so if that sort of thing bugs you, you probably will be driven up a wall by these :)  I do find that using that half-gone, thick, gloppy bottle of Seche Vite (you know you have one) helped to smooth it out a bit.

Side note: Julep Hayden is currently one of the polishes offered in their Maven "Boho Glam Intro Box".  If you are interested in signing up, you can use my referral link here (be sure to use the code "COLORS4ONE" to get your first month's box for only a penny!).  In addition to receiving a cool box of polishes and manicure items each month, you also get the opportunity to earn your box for free or referring friends!


What do you think of Hayden? And sequins?  Yay or nay?

  7. You posted about a circus peanut nail polish before (Finger Paints! I just looked it up), but THIS one looks exactly like circus peanuts to me. I love it; it's such a unique color.
