Win Julep Kerry for a Perfect Fall Manicure

Once again, my mistake is someone else’s gain.  The fatal downfall to having 347 different bottles of nail polish is that on occasion, I get a duplicate.  Not just a similar polish, but the exact same one.  In this case, I opted in for the Pumpkin Spice Mystery Polish in my November Julep Maven Box and ended up with a second bottle of Julep Kerry.  So let’s have a giveaway!

Julep Red & Gold Ombre Nail Art Tutorial

If you’ve been following my blog for long enough, you’ll have noticed that I love nail art… but I’m no nail tech.  I do my best, but I usually have to simplify things.  That’s why I LOVE the look of the red & gold ombre nail art tutorial that Julep has shared.  It’s got holiday flare but it’s also elegant enough to really be worn year-round with the right outfit and attitude.
