Julep Courtney Review/Swatch

I'm still wearing my Jamberry nail shield from yesterday's manicure - if you missed it, click here.  Of course, I had to put green on today for St. Patrick's Day (the nail shield isn't very St. Patrick-y but that's okay).  I didn't really do anything too exciting this weekend for the holiday - yesterday I brought my 7 year old to Oz The Great & Powerful (it was pretty good - April loved it).  And then today I brought April and Shelby to a Drumline Competition at the High School nearby.  So I did leave the house for a while with this green manicure... This is Julep Courtney.
Courtney is described on Julep's site as a "Key-Lime Green Creme".  That explains it perfectly.  It was opaque in two coats, just like most Juleps I have.  Like yesterday's orange, I wouldn't have guessed that I would like it this much.  It's different, but in a good way.  I think I'm venturing out a little more on my nail colors and it's fun:)  Who knows, maybe I'll try China Glaze Trendsetter one day???!!!
 And as you can see, I still have the Jamberry Nail Shield on in Multi Color Chevron.  I showered and everything and it's still in tact!  I'm not surprised though - a few months ago, I was wearing a nail shield and we went to a community center to go swimming and it stayed on perfectly.  I couldn't ask for anything more.

Did you have a good St. Patrick's Day if you celebrate?  I remember the day when we would go to the bar and drink green beer.  I think I fell asleep on the couch last night at like 9:00.  I'm so cool ;)

Have a great rest of your weekend!

  1. This green is really pretty, and I think the Jamberry shield works great with the green! It's almost like a rainbow. :)

    1. Oh cool! I hope you like them as much as I do. A sheet lasts forever because you can use one strip twice because they are so long. And if you only use them as accents, that's a lot of manicures:)

  6. Hi Essie - what a great mani!!! I love this kinds of green but they don't love me back - LOL, they look gruesome with my skin :-S!!! We don't celebrate St. Patrick's Day in Switzerland - well Irish Pubs might be filled to the gills but that's about it ;-)
