Valentine's is almost upon us, so I thought that I would do a little round up of some pink, glitter and red polishes you may want to get your hands on!
As I'm sure you know if you've been following me for any length of time, I have a HUGE Julep nail polish collection. Way more than anyone really needs to own ahaha. I have been a Julep Maven for 7 years now, which is a monthly subscription service if you're not aware. If you are interested in checking out Julep's polishes, box sets and beauty products, you can check them out here.
So anyways, I thought that I would pick through my Julep polishes and choose a few pinks, glitters and reds that stand out to me for Valentine's Day. I wanted to keep it versatile for everyone with some classic shades and some funky shades. The colours I've chosen are: Adeline, Polly, Vicki, Marianne, Hartleigh, Elsie, Lee & Kayleigh.
I think there's a shade for everyone. For the glitters I would suggest them over a white or pale pink base if you want them to be the feature, otherwise layer them over any of these colours. Below are swatches of each polish and will link Julep's descriptions of each colour.
Adeline is described as Azalea Blossom Multidimensional Shimmer. It's a little deeper shade for those who don't want an overly bright pink. It has a really subtle gold/pink shimmer which is lovely.
Polly is described as a Vibrant Azalea Shimmer and is bright. I suggest that you do at least 3 coats when wearing this polish as it is very thin; you can still see my free edge.
Vicki is described as a Pink Flamingo Crème and it is not wrong. This is a very bright colour and would be absolutely perfect for spring/summer as well. If you need a pick me up in these cooler months - this is it!
Marianne is described as a Tutti Frutti Matte Glitter Top Coat. It has varying sizes of glitter which is nice and it spreads it all out pretty evenly.
Hartleigh is described as a Holographic Heart Glitter Top Coat but unlike Marianne is more difficult to work with. It's thicker and separates so trying to get the big heart pieces means you'll need to go fishing in the bottle. It needs a really good shake before use but it's cute.
Elsie is described as a Strawberry Popsicle Holographic Jelly (which means it's sheer) but with 2-3 coats it actually goes on really nicely. I love the rainbow holo in it because it adds something to a basic red.
Lee is apparently no longer on their website but a really good comparison (which I may actually own as well) is Myriam which is described as a Casino Red Crème. Lee is a bright classic red that would suit anyone.
Last, but not least I have Kayleigh which is described as Holly Berry Iridescent Shimmer. This colour has really nice blue/pink shimmer in it which makes the red base pull a little deeper pink in some lights.
Let me know which polish colour is your favourite and what you tend to rock for Valentine's Day! Are you a classic French manicure? Bold red? Bright pink? I want to know!
