While working on a super secret project, I pulled out my bottle of JulieG Pink Tiara, a pretty pink glitter in a pink base. For this manicure, I used a base coat of Poshe, 2 coats of polish and a top of Cult Nails Wicked Fast. This is a gritty glitter (yes, say that 5 times fast), so you may need to add a second layer of top coat for a smooth finish. I prefer using Lynnderella Glitter Tamer, but since Lynnderella has moved to selling her items on eBay only, trying to purchase her polishes is like being able to eat caviar every night off your golden spoon while on your private plane to Australia. [Edit, this listing ends TODAY. I have no idea who the seller is, but the price is comparable to actual market price which was $7.50 for a bottle.]
Okay, so memo #1 about Pink Tiara. My bottle had a wonky brush - almost like the brush that comes with the nail polish "Floam" by Nail-Venturous. It's a bit fluffy and while it worked in spreading my polish, it also allowed me to paint all over my cuticle which made clean up a little longer.
I emailed the company, and this brush is not standard - I just got a wonky brush. I was offered a replacement, but definitely didn't need it - I'm good with my special brush.
Back to the polish. While this is a glitter, it's in an opaque base, which is great. The grittiness is something I'm not a fan of, but the payoff is lovely. As for removal, you will need to foil your nails to get this stuff off, but otherwise, it wears well with minimum chipping.
SUN! Look how this polish seriously shines. I can understand why it's named Pink Tiara - it's like a ton of little gems all over your nails. Reminds me a tiny bit of my DIY "fail" shoes I made.
I'm still going to rock these shoes and just have an interesting story to tell for anyone who asks "Why do you have two different colored shoes?" (Answer? Because I was attempting a DIY I saw on this blog, and I was trying one in red, one in blue & purple. I figured, nbd, I'll go buy another pair of shoes and make a match if I like the technique. I go back to buy a second pair of shoes and surprise - they don't sell them anymore.)
Back to the polish. I am obsessed with this color in the shade. Absolutely obsessed. I want to wear it every day. I hope that if JulieG makes more glitter nail polish, it has this same consistency and everything. And I want a blue/purple mix. Please and thank you.
Finally indoors with the flash - this isn't a very flattering look for this polish. Point blank.
Love the product description too: "Glitter fanatics take note! This medium pink glitter is fit for royalty."
Then again, I wrote the product description. :] No really, I did! All the JulieG descriptions were originally written by me, and tweaked by the Jesse's Girl Cosmetics staff. I feel honored to have my little mark on this brand. (I also wrote the descriptions for the Jesse's Girl main line.)
And there you have it!
You can purchase JulieG in Rite Aid stores across the US or shop online at Jesse's Girl Cosmetics which ships worldwide! JulieG sells for $3.99 for a 0.35 fl oz (10 mL) bottle.
