Polish My Life - Big City, Bright Lights Collection

Today I have an absolutely stunning collection to share with you. This is The Big City, Bright Lights Collection from Polish My Life. These are all New York themed, Shaneka's stomping grounds. She has dubbed these "cremely's" because some are right on the verge of being a jelly but wouldn't classify as a crelly either as they are her famous buttery creme formula with just a hint of squishy jelliness. Her birthday is on Sunday 3/9 so this collection completely embodies her! Be sure to pop over to one of her social networks (they'll be posted at the end) and wish her a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

Now, let me just reiterate something. I know I am the official reviewer/swatcher for Polish My Life, but with that being said, everything I write is 100% absolutely true and my honest personal opinion. I know I've never given a bad review of Polish My Life, not even a hint of negativity. But that is because I simply can't. It wouldn't be true. Everything she does is absolute perfection! Including this collection. They all apply so smooth and buttery. So now moving on to what you came here for!

2014 Oscar Mani for Julep Mavin

Julep approached me and asked if I would like to do a post and recreation of my favorite celebrity nail look from the 2014 Oscar mani cam and I could not resist! And then tragedy struck. Saturday night our cable and internet went out and never came back on. So, I didn't get to see the Oscars or catch any highlights online until Tuesday! From what I was able to gather online my favorite celebrity manicure was Kristen Chenoweth's. Her delicate glitter gradient was simple but something different then everyone else's. And you all know my inner struggle with wanting to try stiletto nails but I haven't mustered up that courage! So I'm living vicariously through Kristen!

For my recreation I wanted to add just a little something extra. So I did a gold caviar nail to represent her gorgeous ring she wore! Hope you guys like this! Julep will be picking their top faves of submitted recreations to feature on their Twitter!
