Christmas Blogger Exchange

I was so excited to participate in the Christmas blogger exchange this year set up by Mattie and Olya!! They did it using Elfster, which I hadn't used before, but was pretty easy and I even got some secret "questions" from my gifter asking about things I liked. When mine came in the mail, I was excited to see if was from one of the hostesses herself, Olya!! 

Let me tell you, she did good :) 

I love having painted nails but they typically look like a toddler did it when I paint them. They always end up globby or chipped. However! She bought me this great set from Julep! It included a hand and cuticle stick, a gorgeous fuschia color, a glitter polish and their special freedom polymer topcoat, which was described as a mix between a gel and traditional topcoat. 

I quickly went to work and painted away. Much to my surprised I actually did a good job (haha), I think in most part because the polish! It went on very smooth and the top coat made it look shiny and professional. I was very impressed! 

So, thank you, thank you to you Olya!!! I love my gift!! I'm excited to try the glitter out next!

I sent my gift to Marie of Twin Living! I hope she likes it! 



  1. Gorgeous nails and FUN idea!! Have a Merry and Joyous weekend beauty!!

  2. LOVE that nail color! Julep has awesome polish! Have a wonderful weekend!!

  3. I've heard so many great things about this nail polish, may have to actually check it out myself.

    By the way your ring is absolutely gorgeous! I don't think I've ever seen it before up close.

  4. What pretty nails! I so loved my gift!! Thank you so very much!!

  5. That color is sooo pretty! I think I have a Julep polish or two that I have yet to try out! Maybe I'll do that this weekend. :)

  6. Love that color. And now I really want a set like that since the top coat is like a traditional one and gel one. My nail polish never stays on that long. It was a really fun exchange. Have a good weekend.

  7. Your nails look awesome! What a fun gift!!

  8. I am so so glad you liked it! :) I love using that top coat! By the way, your rings are gorgeous! :)
