Julep Sue & Elaine

Hey everyone! Did you all have a good weekend? We had gorgeous weather for Mother's Day and took my mom to PF Chang's for dinner. I ate way too much, but it was soo good.

In honor of Mother's Day I did something special for my nails this weekend. I have two Julep polishes with the names of my mom and my grandma. Sue, my mom's name, is the color I used for the base. It is an elegant dusty rose shimmer. Elaine, my grandma's name, is the color I used for the quatrefoil accent. Elaine came in the 2014 Gem Collection, which is part of the reason why I wanted to buy the collection. It is described as a wisteria full-coverage micro glitter. I had no idea there was a color called wisteria, but basically it's a light violet color. I love this mani because every time I look at it I think of my family.

To achieve the quatrefoil effect I used the quatrefoil stencil from Vinyl It Up. All you need to do is place the stencil over your nail after you've truly allowed your base color to dry, paint over it with a thin coat of polish, and peel it up while the polish is still wet. It looks so cool!

I hope you all have a great start to the week!
