One of my favorite collections of 2012 was Julep Resort. Back then I was a Maven and it was hard to choose which box to get the month it was introduced. Julep didn't offer add-ons so I thought I missed out on Maya. My friend Candice at Mommy Does Her Nails generously surprised me with it this past summer, though. Here it is in all its frosty, peachy-pink glory.
C and I just started watching Arrested Development on netflix and Maya somehow reminds me of Lucille (the mom, not Liza Minelli) in a disconnected from reality, slightly tackily yet expensively dressed, ladies who lunch sort of totally good way. Yes, totally good. It really is a pretty shade and you all know how I like my light, pearly polishes. It's not often a lacquer evokes a very specific persona or feeling, and when it does it's extra fun to wear.
I should really have a shot of these nails with a martini glass or something, but the color looks just as much at home next to some (cheap) tortoiseshell sunglasses. ;)
One of my sisters and I got together this morning and she liked the color so much she wanted her nails done in it, too. Now I know how maligned the frost finish is in the polish community and this is terribly brushstroke-y. Like I said, though, the peachy pink shade itself is divine and it's got perfect, full coverage which is truly rare for a light pearl. Thanks for allowing me to add this fun one to my stash, Candice ♥♥♥
