NOTD: Julep Jennifer and Sally Hansen Strobelight

Jennifer by Julep is a ultra pale peach cream that made for a nice background for Sally Harsen's delicate glitter Strobelight.  I've a fondness for this iridescent fine glitter and seem to gravitate to it this time of the year.  It's still cold outside yet all the flowering tress are in bloom and the azaleas are starting to peek out as well.  Something about Strobelight captures the cold,  yet the flashes of color remind of the vibrant colors starting to emerge.
Jennifer was a bit streaky and may have needed 3 coats on it's own, but 2 were plenty as a base coat for the glitter.  I used one coat of Strobelight and topped it off with Julep's new gel top coat.  I'm really loving this look and think it's a both a nice palette cleanser for all the darker/brighter colors I've been wearing this winter, as well as a nice harbinger of spring!
Disclaimer:  I purchased these.

  1. This is very pretty, and it definitely reminds me of spring! I also have Jennifer, and I'm loving Julep's new gel topcoat! It doesn't get bubbles like my other topcoats always do.

  3. Strobelight is one of my most favorite glitters!
