Merry Christmas Eve!!!! I have been waiting for this week to come so that I could really get in the Christmas spirit with my nail polish! When I think Christmas, I think about red, green, and gold. So, I decided to paint my nails red and gold for the weekend! For my red polish, I used Orly in Star Spangled. It is a red polish with red micro glitter sparkles! Super shimmery which I love! On my two accent nails, I used Julep in Margot as my base gold polish. It is a micro gold glitter polish. I provided a full review of this polish here. I then topped my Julep polish with Nails, Inc. in Snowglobe. This is a gold glitter polish suspended in clear polish. I did a full review of this polish as well. Click here to read more about it. The colors are so beautiful together and now my nails look so festive and I am fully ready to celebrate the holidays now! Check out my nails below!

I feel like I have been doing a lot of lipstick and beauty product reviews lately and have been neglecting my beloved nail polishes (outside of my nails of the week posts)…which is a little odd since nail polish is a focus of my blog. No worries, I will find a healthy balance to ensure that I am providing my honest reviews of all things lippies, nails, and beauty in the future.
With that being said, I am going to share with you all my thoughts on the nail polish I chose to get me in the Thanksgiving spirit a couple of weeks ago! I decided to go with Julep Bombshell in Margot. I received it in my Julep subscription box either in October or November. However, it sells for $14.00. Click here to be taken to the product page.The polish is a very beautiful shimmery gold. On the website it is described as an old Hollywood gold shimmer. Something about the gold made me think fall and turkeys! Lol! Anyway, the polish is of great quality. It’s a “5-free, vegan-friendly formula that also includes strengthening Hexanal and antioxidant green coffee extract.” I wore it for 5 days and there was no chipping or fading of the polish. I was a little concerned that removal would be difficult because sometimes nail polishes with this kind of shimmer may really be glitter, which can make it hard to remove it. However, it was like removing a regular nail polish. I didn’t have to do any extra scrubbing or anything. I used a non-acetone remover on cotton balls and the polish came right off. Next time I’m in a golden mood, I will definitely pull this color out! Check out a picture of my nails below!
