Ikat Chevrons With Julep

These look intricate, but they are really very easy just a bit time consuming. I used Julep Parker, Alma, & Annie.

What you'll need: 3 fairly opaque polishes (no thin formulas for this technique), a flat brush, & a good top coat (I like Essie Good To Go)
Paint all your nails with one coat of the lightest polish color. Don't worry if it's streaky.
Add chevrons in your second color to all nails. I just used the polish brushes. You can be very messy & imprecise.
Add chevrons in the third color to all nails. Remember your chevrons don't need to be straight and perfect!
Next put a drop or two of  polish on your palette (I just use the middle of a nail wheel).  Dip a flat brush in the polish & start creating your ikat lines. I recommend doing just two nails at a time at this point.
Repeat step 5 with the other polishes, 2 nails at a time.
It's going to look kind of terrible until you add the topcoat. Just go for it! Check the overall shape of your chevrons at this point. You can easily go back and add a few lines to straighten them up if needed.
Add a coat of topcoat before until continuing on to the rest of your nails
 
 

Beautiful & easy enough to do on both hands!
Thanks for reading & let me know if you try this out. I'd be happy to post them on my blog if a few of you lovely ladies give it a go.

Layering With JENsations Rainbow Sprinkles & Julep Alma

Just a quick fun layering combo for summer. I started with a base of Julep Alma then topped it with one coat of the fabulous Rainbow Sprinkles from JENsations. (You can see my previous post layering it over a berry jelly polish here.) Still available from her Etsy store for $8. I've got my eye on Turn Off the Lights too!

Julep Parker

 Julep Parker is a lovely orange sherbert creme. Shown here at two coats but I think I could have used a third. I love orange but not all of them look great with my skintone. I'm passing this one onto a friend who's been looking for just this color.
Thanks for reading!

Julep Alma

Julep describes this one as "a retro dijon yellow crème" & Will says that describes it perfectly! Shown here at two easily applied coats.

EEK!

My new nail art pens again! This time I used a base of Julep Annie & Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen Purple. I was inspired by a Pumpkin Masters template. I added more more monster parts & I love it!

Julep Annie

I love any polish that looks this great in just one coat! Julep Annie is about two shades lighter than Zoya Breezi & OPI Suzi Says Feng Shui. This is my first Julep polish & it's definitely a keeper!

I made a GIANT concrete skull for Halloween!
