5 Pretty Pink Nail Polishes For Spring!

I’m pulling out the pink nail polish as we near Spring and here are a few of my favorites! I love pink nails because I feel like it lasts longer and is easy to touch up, of and of course it soooooo pretty!

Morgan Taylor in Plumette With Excitement – This was part of the Spring 2017 Beauty & The Beast Collection. Plumette With Excitement has a white base and is a light opaque pink. Morgan Taylor also has a really pretty dark pink called Be My Guest.

Julep in Stacie – This shade is  Autumn Rose Crème but I love this deep pink for Spring!

OPI Classic Nail Lacquer in Cozu-melted in the Sun – This shimmery pink looks so pretty in the sun, go figure!

Essie High Class Affair – This is a amorous blush nude with a very small hint of pink. Perfect for weddings and classy affairs!

Avon Gel Finish in Dazzle Pink – This 7-in-1 nail enamel from Avon dries shiny and does not need a top coat. It is a pretty light pink with a touch of shimmer.

Julep Light On Your Lips Lipstick Review

My new favorite Winter lipstick is the Julep Light On Your Lips Full-Coverage Crème Lipstick in Strut which is a  Plum Nectar Crème.

What’s to love?

I am a huge fan of the Julep products in general so when I got this lipstick in one of mystery boxes I was thrilled.  The creme formula not only has great coverage but it looks amazing and gives my Winter lips a little moisture. It has:

  • Shea Butter heals dryness and enhances moisture
  • Rosehip Seed Oil delivers essential nutrients to protect, soothe, and repair
  • Malvaceae Lipid Extract improves barrier function so lips retain moisture
  • Green Coffee Bean Oil invigorates skin and promotes cell turnover

I love the plum shade of Strut  which is a nice dark purple shade with a little raisin in the mix. It looks great with bronze eyeshadow too.

Overall I love this formula. It’s a creme that feels like a sheer and I only have to reapply every few hours.

Lush Metamorphosis Bath Bomb – This one is a spicy one with black pepper oil, cinnamon leaf oil and Myrrh Resinoid but it smells really woodsy and good.

Lush Dark Arts Jelly Bomb! – Lush UK decided to release a new Bath Bomb called Darks Arts. It’s actually a new bath bomb called a jelly bomb and it looks amazing!

Julep Dance in the Darkness Eclipse Set

I ordered the Julep Dance in the Darkness set for the Eclipse  knowing it would come a little later and I’m so glad I did. These shades are amazing and perfect for Halloween too. I am a Julep Maven and got this Sweet Steal set for $14 ($56 value).

I am wearing Blakey and it’s so pretty.  This is a great Fall color for me if you’re a Harry Potter fan you’re going to love it! It reminds me of the color of a caldron.

Julep Judy! My Nails Shine Like The Eclipse Corona!

I wanted to do something fun for the eclipse today. I actually ordered the “Dance in the Darkness” set but it won’t be here until Wednesday so I decided to paint my nails with the Judy shade which is Moonbeam Iridescent Chrome. I got this in my Julep Fall All The Way Mystery Box!

I absolutely love this sparkly shade. It perfect for Fall, a Harry Potter party, Halloween and viewing the eclipse!

What’s to love?

This color is just magic! It’s got a red orange base with flecks of gold and purple which gives it the holographic effect.

I love how easy it is to apply and it dries with a very shiny finish. I also love that Julep nail polishes tend to last a little longer than most. I am wearing two coats in this photo.

It’s also a 5-free, vegan-friendly formula.
