Beach mani - Julep India, Kai, Kennedy, Adele

Hey internet Friends!

I realized Summer is coming to a close, even though it's crazy hot today I'm typing this up on Labor Day, so I wanted to squeeze a beach themed mani in. I originally had BIG plans for some stamping over a couple nails but once I got the base colors down I didn't want to cover up their loveliness so I said screw you stamps! Onto the pics.

Julep India thumb to middle, Julep Kai on ring, and Julep Kennedy topped with Adele on pinky. I have loved this mani since the minute I put it on! I think it came out lovely hehehe

India was an ok formula a little thick and stunk something awful! It smells like a sweet skunks butt lol the color though is gorgeous and sooooo blue. So. Blue. It has some super fine shimmer that looks green in some light. Even with the stink which isn't that awful it doesn't linger, I love this color. 2 coats here.

Kai is one of Julep's sea salt finish colors. It doesn't have any shimmer or glitter so I guess a creme sea salt finish? I have all of their sea salt colors and they normally dry lightning fast but this one took a while, I don't think it was 100% dry in my photos ooops because the next morning I noticed it had much more texture to it when it was fully dry. I used 2 coats.

Kennedy is a pretty light creamy neutral, very nice formula, 2 coats shown here. I topped it with 1 coat of Adele a gold shimmery topper that flashes green/aqua. These 2 go excellent together. I used a light blue 2 mm square stud that I got from eBay.

I used Glisten & Glow HK Girl top coat except over Kai.

This turned out to be one of my fav manis in a while, what do you think? Did I do a good beach theme? :)

(Whoah just noticed the random floating curved watermark over the last 2 bottle photos haha! I can't fix it right now so that has to wait until tomorrow lol)
