Julep Mystery Box Swatches

Now that I've had a chance to test out the colours from my Julep Cinco De Mayo Box, I thought I would share:

 I've already posted a picture of "Maya"


But here are "Demi" "Leah" and "Natalie":



Demi is a gorgeous deep maroon/blood-red. 

Leah (the green) and Natalie (the pink)


 Leah is a fresh summery bright grass green and Natalie is a hot fuscia pink. 


 La Maria left me a comment with the excellent idea of combining Leah and Natalie to make a watermelon nail! So I am far from professional at nail art - and don't even really have any "tools" (pens/sticks/whatever nail art tools are called....) but this is my attempt at a watermelon accent nail! It is so summery! 


If you're curious about what I used for the other green of the rind/the seeds - the green was Revlon Top Speed "Emerald"and the seeds were just plain black Wet n Wild that I think I bought one year for a Halloween costume! 



Watermelon Colours
If you guys have any other neat nail-accent nail-art ideas for me that are really simple and an inexperienced shaky-handed novice can do - please share!!

  3. Cute! For easy nail art, dots are the easiest, but can look impressive especially if you combine different sizes and colours of dots. I did a few in my nail art section of my blog and Nailed It also has quite a number of cute designs that are straightforward.

  8. I think for colours I like Maya the best, though I like your nail art! I haven't attempted any nail art yet, though I did buy a pack of brushes. Maybe I'm just nervous about it. Anyway, you did really well with yours!

    1. You should try something :) I am really really shaky and terrible but it's still fun! Though I think at some point I might have to invest in a pack of brushes too, or at least a nail-art-pen of sorts
