Neutral And Blue Nails

I was sporting some seriously blue nails in my last outfit post. Which I liked. But thought were too… specific, i.e. give me navy nails any day, but bright blue? Maybe not. Neutral with a strong blue accent might be more my style. What do you think?

Julep Stefani and Butter London Matte Finish Topcoat

Dear Laura,

I painted my nails! I know, it’s a rarity. I feel that nail polish takes so long to dry that I don’t really have time for it… and I did end up wrecking these within two hours of applying the polish. I’ve been using Butter London’s Matte Finish Topcoat constantly and really like it. I originally thought it might dry my nails faster, but it takes just as long to fully set my nails as usual… if only I could seem to remember that.

The color I used is Julep’s Stefani from one of my old Julep Maven boxes, described as a “Gold flecked grey metallic”. There are tiny gold flecks in the polish that begin to stand out as the polish dries. Julep nail polishes are 4 free and I like to use natural products as much as possible, so they get my dangerous chemical-free approval.
