Julep Kelly

Good morning and happy Caturday!  Some dudes behind me in the customer service line yesterday were speaking in what I could only assume were gaming terms, and Caturday came up, so I thought I'd google it.  Turns out it has nothing to do with gaming.  It means you get to post all manner of cute and/or funny cat pictures to an image board I've never heard of.  Maybe these dudes are way into cats, which in that case, rock on!  I shall post some cat spam at the end.  But first...
Today is Pink day and marks the last day in Bec's Rainbow Favorites challenge.  It's been a blast getting to know some new polish friends, and yes, a challenge just to get a post up every day for a week, and one I'd totally do again.  Pink is one of my favorite colors to wear, and while it's hard to call this one my favorite, I really like it and I've been looking for a good excuse to bring it out again.  Here's Julep Kelly, the very palest of pink cremes.




This is a fun color.  It's slightly discordant with my skin tone, which makes wearing it a bit of an adventure, like something haute couture might be if I ever got the chance to wear such a piece.  Neutrals lighter than skin tone, including whites, look terribly chic to me.  I used three coats, but could have done with four.  You can see it's a little patchy and streaky.  Julep's cremes aren't the most fun things in the world for me to work with.  When I first got Kelly, it was kind of all over the place, but a couple months has thickened it up and if I wanted a snowball's chance of this manicure lasting more than a couple hours (Juleps chip, like, while I sleep) I thought I'd better keep the layers as thin as possible.  I'll be cleaning the house in this beaut, so we'll see how it fares. ;)
 As promised, here's Baby Beau.  He likes to bite things.


Sally, my little girl cat who wasn't feeling well, is good as new after a round of antibiotics, and playing like she hasn't since she was an only child.  I didn't want to trouble her for a picture this morning. ;)
Thank you for reading, and have a swell weekend. :)

Oh sheesh, I almost forgot.


Now go find yourselves some more lemmings. ;)

  1. cool, I like that it's not in-yo-face pink! I don't do well with nudes though, I think my personality is too crazy for "quiet" colors =)) But this one looks good on you!! And when you're done cleaning your house I invite you to come clean mine! Haha j/k =))

    1. I have a greater like for nudes and light neutrals than most of us polish fiends, I know. I actually had kind of a difficult time with pastels, and I was excited when I received this Maven box because it was soooo outside my comfort zone. Oh, and forget it!!! lol. ;) :)

    1. I do, too! I wish Julep's bottles weren't so tiny, because with three to four coats it's disappearing fast.

  7. I'm so glad your cat is feeling better! I always feel like I am going to spill my bottle when I use Julep's polishes. I have to say though, I REALLY love their fast-dry top coat.

    1. :) Thanks, C :) I don't mind Julep's bottle design, just the size. I haven't used their topcoat in a while. I've been sticking with Out The Door. I should use it next time I wear a Julep.
