I decided that since I have so many Julep polishes that I would try my hand at braided nails. Now, this is my first ever attempt at trying something freehand like this so it is a tad smushy but I think it turned out pretty darn ok!
I got this tutorial from Rebecca Likes Nails who posted a lovely step by step guide.
I was so pleased at how this turned out and how simple it really was! I don't know if I would have the patience to do this on all 10 nails but I think it looks pretty cool as a few accent nails.
I used all Julep polishes: Amy, Niecy and Parker (L to R)
As you can see from the pictures I had a few slip ups and I found that my base color (Niecy) was not opaque enough to cover the blue Amy. I had to use 2 or 3 coats of that every time which is why there is pink smudges everywhere.
One of these days I will have the time and money to afford a decent camera so sorry for the glare in the pictures!
Now I mean it ladies, If someone as un-coordinated as I can pull off something like this, so can you!
Just remember to use colors that are opaque in one coat or your going to have a really hard time.
P.S. I'll be posting what I got in my mystery boxes on Monday. Have a great weekend!
