Julep generously sent us each some nail polish and their Mighty Nail & Cuticle Serum which I already use regularly. I love using it in combination with lotion and Burt’s Bees Cuticle Butter to keep my cuticles in shape.
This look is inspired by the Starbucks holiday cup. I love Starbucks’ packaging designs as well as their interior design (I’m a sucker for the reclaimed industrial aesthetic for interiors). This year features lots of bursts with subtle color contrasts. So, a lot of hot pink and dark red on bright red and lots of sparkly gold. I’ve taken their holiday cup design (I’m holding the grande cup) and adapted it to a half-moon look on my nails.
Recently Starbucks opened a new shop in the Capitol Hill neighborhood here in Seattle, WA that combines the roastery and the coffee shop aspect.
