Glitz Up Your Nails With New Spring Polishes

I love changing my polish each week to reflect my moods and the seasons.

Julep polish has just become available for purchase.  Which I think is great — now more people can be introduced to this innovative polish line.  I love the colors and the smaller bottles since nail polish tends to dry out before it runs out at my house.

Founded by beauty expert Jane Park, Julep celebrates friendship, expression, and connection through color. Applying her professional beauty advice—often featured in leading fashion magazines—Park developed a nail polish collection with colors named after inspirational, vibrant women. Julep’s fast-drying, long-lasting, non-toxic formula is paired with a high-performance, professional brush. Additionally, the brand donates a portion of their proceeds to organizations that support and empower women.

My favorite shade right now is Heather ($14 USD), a platinum greige with a metallic glow.  It is neutral so goes with everything and the metallic color is so cool — I get lots of compliments when I wear it.  I only need 2 coats and applies smoothly.

Sparkle all summer long with China Glaze®’s new Crackle Glitters ($9.00 USD)collection.  Once again taking crackle technology to the next level, this third-generation polish pairs the edgy innovation of crackling nail lacquer with glamorous glitters.  The China Glaze® Crackle Glitters features four shimmering shades including:

·         Luminous Lavender: Luscious light purple
·         Jade-d: Radiant bright green
·         Glam-More: Bold fuchsia
·         Gleam Me Up: Bright sky blue
Create glamorously different looks with just one sweep of China Glaze® Crackle Glitters.  Layer over different base colors to create bold styles.  Use a lighter coat to create a fine crackle, a thicker coat for a deep shatter effect.  Brush sideways or on an angle to create different looks.  As versatile and edgy as China Glaze®’s biggest celebrity fans (Lady Gaga, Rihanna,Nicole Ritchie and Kelly Osbourne, to name a few), China Glaze® Crackle Glitters add a spark(le) to one of the hottest nail art trends!
China Glaze is free of DBP, toluene, and added formaldehyde and available at fine salons and beauty supply stores nationwide in May 2012.  For more information, visit: or follow China Glaze on Facebook and Twitter:
