Julep Oxygen Nail Treatment Review By Denise

Julep Oxygen Nail Treatment Review By Denise

Julep Oxygen Nail Treatment Review! I received this in my February Classic with a Twist box along with two polishes and a Freedom Topcoat. Let’s get on with the review 🙂     This is how the treatment is packaged. The directions and ingredients. Just like their nail polishes, it comes in a sleek glass bottle. I love how the sides are decorated with “O2″s (oxygen). Here are my clean, untreated nails. The tips of my nails are quite weak, there are noticeable cracks and peels. The colour of my nails are somewhat yellow-ish. After applying one coat of the treatment. The treatment is quite thick. It leaves a pink milky glaze and a glossy shine on my nails. However, it has a stinky smell to it. I thought that because it was a treatment, it wouldn’t have that generic […]

February Surprise By Denise

February Surprise By Denise

After waiting for weeks and weeks which seemed like decades… I got my Julep boxes! I still have one more box but it should arrive tomorrow!   Let’s start with the smaller box first 🙂 I got my replacement polishes because there were some errors in my previous orders. Julep’s customer service is one of my favourite among all the beauty companies! Here are the colours. They are perfect for the fall! (Jeez Denise, it’s only Spring…) The one on the left is in Sienna. It is a dark metallic copper. Similar to Amber but without the Matte Suede finish. The one on the right is in Stefani. It is a metallic ash grey. Here are the labels underneath the polishes. Onto my February Classic with a Twist box! It’s been a couple of months since I have un-skipped a […]

Kiehl’s Family and Friends Event! By Denise

I love my Kiehl’s! They are having an event in Canada and USA this weekend only! Buy any two items, get $15 off!!! So of course, I went bright and early today 🙂    My loot!! This is what I bought from Kiehl’s. Photo-age corrector: Deep Action Exfoliating Cleanser. This exfoliator is great for those who have a thinner composition of facial skin. It sounds weird so in simpler terms, for those who have sensitive and delicate skin. I like this because it cleans my skin and I can rub out the dirt in my pores without making my face look like it went through a cheese grater. Hahaha. I then bought the Bath and Shower Liquid Body Cleanser in “Grapefruit“. I ran out of my Philosophy Birthday Cake Shower Gel so I thought that I would give this a […]

Julep Mail! By Denise

Julep Mail! By Denise

  Julep Mail!! Getting Julep packages always make me happy because I’m never disappointed! For this package, remember when I sent in an email in regards to their missing wrapping supplies for one of my polish sets? They sent me a gift card for a free nail polish (worth $11.20) but instead, I used it for this set! Well, let’s get into this!   Tiny little white box. This is what’s inside. The wrapping is so pretty! I love the green bow! This is the Peaceful Trio. All of them are in a matte suede finish. See the micro shimmers? The set comes with Brit (a purplish grey gun metal colour) , Hailee (a grey/muddy green gun metal colour) and Minka (a red/bronze metallic). This set was on sale for $12 and I had a gift card from Julep for […]

CNY NOTD By Denise

Chinese New Years NOTD! Hello everybody! Happy Chinese New Years! This year is the year of the snake and it’s going to be wonderful! I thought about doing a snake themed NOTD but it didn’t really match what I was going to wear tomorrow for my family dinner so I decided to do something more simple but still very festive! Please note: this is my first time doing this kind of post so my photographs aren’t very nice! Let’s get into it! First, here are the “ingredients” for this nail design. I have: nail polish remover for accidents, Julep glitter polish in Vivien, Essie gold polish in Shift Power, Rimmel polish in Stiletto Red, base and top coat by Essie, gold and red glitter, a precision brush for cleaning the edges of my nails, and a fluffy brush to put […]
