Tickle Me Tuesday 2.21.12

I love me a good Monday off of work.

But sometimes Tuesday, disguised as a Monday, can be tricky!!


Alas, some things lately which make me smile:

  • Leg warmers.

Yes really.   LOVE them under my boots.



  • Nail polish galore!

Lately I became obsessed with painting my own nails (as opposed to going to the salon to have shellac done = $$$).  And as a result, I purchased quite a few new colors.  I question how much money I’m saving… but still…

Julep Maven Club — Are you familiar with this once a month nail polish awesomeness program??

Julep is another monthly subscription service (similar to shoe clubs and Birchbox), only for nail care products. You take the quiz to determine your “Maven Style”, then continue to sign up and buy your box! (Or not.) The great thing is that you can even do that from month to month! You’re never locked in to one particular style, so you can always choose the box/style that you like best, or opt out.
Every box comes with at least 2 polishes and a full-size hand/nail/body care item.
Other great things about Julep? $1 from every polish sold goes to support an organization for women!  Additionally, Julep produces 4-free polishes (no formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, or camphor = nasties!) so it’s even safe for little ones and pregnant women! And you! And the environment!

(PEEEE ESSSS: I got a code in the mail for half off your first box as a Maven Julep = $9.99! contact me, crowndvic at gmail dot com, for deets)


A few of my Julep recent-favs: Anne, Meryl, & Whitney.


And Zoya.  I luff their polishes too! (pictured: Ibiza & Kristen)


What are some of your favorites (not restricted to nail polish or fashion faux pas)?

    Those first leg warmers are beautiful! Maybe I should use some leftover yarn and knit up a pair. I haven’t done my nails in forever: they keep breaking off in this dry winter weather. Maybe in the summer!

    I am obsessed with legwarmers. Love them. I wish I had more cold weather chances to wear them in Texas!!!

      Anytime it gets cold enough I whip out my legwarmers. The other day Mike made fun of me and asked if I was going to wear my legwarmers… I guess I wear them quite often!

    I’m big on doing my own nails, but I go in stages… In other words I do really well at keeping them painted for awhile but then drop off. The toes are ALWAYS done though! ;) My recent faves are the Loreal Color Riche polishes. I like Club Prive the most.
