NOTD: JULEP Hayden


Manicure: JULEP Hayden. Neon Peach Creme.

How To: For this manicure I used one coat of Essie's First Base Coat for adhesion; two coats of JULEP’s Hayden; and one coat of Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat.

Notes: From my experience, JULEP’s nail colors have a fairly thick formula – this extends to Hayden (which I found to be thicker than Claire - reviewed here). Regardless, the coverage is gorgeous. You can be opaque with this color after one coat (I did two, just to be sure of complete coverage). Hayden is a neon color, so it dries completely matte – so if you want it to shine, you definitely have to use a top coat.

I am in LOVE with this color; I think it will forever be my favorite JULEP shade. It is completely unique and gorgeous; plus, it seriously makes you look tan. I’m really pale (I described myself as being one step up from a vampire the other day), yet in real life (I don’t know if it’s completely captured in these pictures), this color makes my skin look so tan. It is absolutely perfect for spring / summer because it kind of plays up two different trends at once – neon and pastel. If you only buy one JULEP nail color, I highly recommend this one.

Accessories: Dara Ettinger Angelica Ring in Red.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with JULEP; it is a monthly subscription service similar to Birchbox, wherein each month (unless you elect to skip that month), you receive a box of nail polish / nail care items worth $40.00 or more, for $19.99. The colors and products you receive are based on your style profile (I am ‘Classic With A Twist’), which you can change from month to month. I joined for a PENNY two months ago and have loved it so far – especially since I’ve received so many products already. If you want to JULEP out for yourself for a PENNY, use Coupon Code COLOR2012 upon checkout.

Gorgeous color. It looks only a bit brighter than orange sherbet, and the ring is perfection.

I'm actually wearing Hayden right now too, just on my middle finger though! I did an ombre manicure using quite a few Julep colors (love them) and Hayden in the shade that ties the pale pinks with the corals. I love this shade, I think it was in the first box I received from them months ago :)

Sara said...

What a pretty shade! Have you ever tried doing that "ombre" nails look? I fail horribly, but I think you have enough shades to do it, lol.

Thanks for tagging me the other day! Wahta cool post :)

I think if it's thick then I won't have to put on too many coats, right? Very peachy!

Peach...a colour I love in theory. Although everytime I use it, it looks too light against my skin. I'm afraid my nails might look washed out in that colour.
