Okay, I am unduly proud of myself for actually painting my own nails and having them turn out nicely, because that *never* happens. But I am also completely smitten with my new polish color, Julep’s “Julia,” which I put on for my husband’s Christmas party tonight:
It is a multidimensional purple gold, and I just love it 😀
So I wanted to share, and see what other colors that you love for the festive holiday season 🙂

Very pretty 🙂
lol I didn’t even think about doing my nails for DH’s party, but it didn’t happen anyway.

Not exactly the most traditionally festive color, but I recently bought “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service” from OPI’s Skyfall collection, and I’m obsessed with it. It is the most amazing glittery dark gunmetal grey.
I think it will definitely be my holiday color this year 🙂

@AB Bride: LOL! To be honest, I was just looking for an excuse to buy the Julep holiday set (which is a great deal!), and the party provided one. It is at a very fancy location, so it is also a plausible one 😉 And thank you!
@figgnewton: Oh wow! Those are so fun (and so far beyond my very limited skill set!) hehe

@sarahbabs: Yay for you! I always feel inordinately proud of myself when I accomplish perfect nail polish, too, lol. It’s not that easy! I always get impatient in the drying process and then smudge them. 🙂
Your nails look so great! I love the color, I’ll have to check into that.

@figgnewton: Could never pull those off on my own, but so fun!
My dad used to do my nails for me when I lived at home. He has the steadiest hand ever and could do the most amazing designs. He’d draw candy canes and ornaments and trees etc on my nails. Always looked awesome. Now I’m on my own I’m pretty much limited to solid colors, as it’s all I’m capable of, haha.

@cb336: Oooh, that is PRETTY! I actually have a similar Betsey Johnson languishing on a shelf at home – seeing it on has inspired me to give it a shot 🙂
@cb336: LOL, that is awesome!
@Sunfire: I know! If I ever manage to apply it right in the first place, I do the same thing. This polish set quickly though, so I am loving it thus far!
