OMD 31 Day Challenge - Day 2 - Blue

Hi everyone! I hope all you fellow Canadians out there had a good Canada Day yesterday and had a decent psuedo-Monday. I love short weeks!

Today I have day two of the OMD 31 day challenge which is blue! I have a simple manicure today which actually turned out the way I envisioned. That rarely happens!

I started with two coats of Julep Ally. Ally is a beautiful bright blue with a dark, evil side. The dark side is the formula, it was incredibly thick and goopy. And it smelt funny, sort of skunky. But the color is lovely. After Ally had finally dried (it took forever, even with Seche Vite) I lightly brushed Joe Fresh Twilight at the base of my nails. I used a second coat of top coat my right hand and Ally made weird wrinkles all over my nail with the second coat of Seche, so I skipped the second coat of top coat on my left hand. I really love the color of Ally, but the formula is terrible and definitely not what I've come to expect from Julep polishes.

The goldie-yellowie color above is what Twilight looks like most of the time, but when the light hits it just right it makes a lovely green which you can see on my pinky nail below. I love the greeny color with the blue.

Here's a direct sunlight photo, isn't the bright blue color lovely? Too bad about the formula :(

Thanks for reading!

  1. The blue sounds like a lil bit of a hassle but it's the most gorgeous shade!

    1. I love it too! But then I'm a total sucker for blues!

  2. I love Ally as well, but I did not experience the wrinkling...then again I don't use Seche Vite...

    1. Hmm...maybe it just didn't like Seche. Does yours smell funny too? Maybe it's just my bottle...
