Julep - Hayden

Good morning and happy first day of 2012!! I'm kind of bummed that its Sunday because that means the Rose Parade isn't until tomorrow. I live in Pasadena, CA and most of the city is a buzz on Rose Parade day! Its kind of sad, but I actually missed the loud and rude awakening by the military fly over... but I will be getting it tomorrow! They usually fly directly over my house and windows rattle and all that fun stuff. I think I may go to the Rose Parade in person this year (though I'm not sure), but if I do I'll be sure to post pictures! Anyways, enough about parades and fly overs... let's get on to the polish!

Today's post is a color I got in my January Maven Box from Julep (please excuse the messy cuticles).

Hayden. 3 coats. This color is described as a bold and bright neon peach creme. Bold and Bright? Yes. Neon? YES. I was nervous about how this color was going to look on my skin tone because I normally can't pull off colors like this, but it looks great and I love it! The formula was a little tricky, but I think I just don't have the hang of the long bottle/brush yet haha. I'm really glad I got this color in my box, its definitely not a color I would have picked for myself. That's one of my favorite things about Julep Maven. I get things I would not have otherwise tried!

Thanks for reading, until next time!
