Julep Abbie

Well, here I am ready to show you another yellow polish. I figured that the start of the work week deserved a little brightness–even if it just on my nails.  I am sure that I’ve mentioned the fact that I am super obsessed with yellow nail polish lately so I was super excited to see Julep Abbie when I was perusing their site. I have this love/hate relationship with yellow nail polish because I adore how it looks on my dark skin, but I also dread the application issues. It is very rare to find a yellow polish that doesn’t go on streaky so if you do find one, hold on to it…cherish it and build it its own shrine. Let’s get down to it: Did Julep Abbie break my yellow-loving heart? Look at the swatches before reading about my thoughts.




I love the finished look of Abbie. I did not, however, love the application process. After I applied the first coat, I knew that I was in for some work because it was streak-a-rrific. I then decided that my best plan of attack would be to apply super thin coats which is how I ended up with 4 thin coats for the swatches above. I know “nobody got time fo’ dat” but sometimes you really have to work with a polish color that you love. And now here comes the bad news: this polish stains horribly. I mean, like your nails look diseased bad. My nails were super yellow when I removed this polish which was a total bummer. I used pure acetone for removal and the staining did not go away until I lightly buffed my nails. The next time I wear this polish, I’m going to have to double up on my base coat. I wish I didn’t love this yellow so much because the application was kind of problematic!!

This polish is part of Julep’s April Brights Collection and came in the April It Girl Box. Have you checked out Julep yet? I personally love their boxes and I also want to share that my friend, Sarah, just won those mythical $500 Visa Cards in her mystery box. Congrats, Sarah!!!!

And now for some awesome news: I just got the news that I won a set of the Zoya Summer PixieDust polishes from a giveaway over at All Lacquered Up. I am so excited!!! Can’t wait to get them. This actually made me feel better after a completely miserable day at work. I actually woke up with a headache this morning and I still have it now despite taking a crapton of Advil. I think that I need to go to bed extra early tonight and just hope that I feel better tomorrow. Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon!
