While I know I don’t need more nail polish I just couldn’t help but use up all of those Jules on these absolutely gorgeous colors from August’s Wanderlust collection.

I loved all of the polish colors this month, but I decided to go with Classic with a Twist and add on one other shade I really liked.

 Gel Eye Glider in Smoky Taupe Shimmer

This eyeliner is actually quite nice. Im not a religious user of eye liner mainly because I keep my routine simple. This goes on smoothly and really does last all day. It didn’t smudge which is awesome in an eyeliner. I hate getting that dark bag look under my eyes from my eye makeup smudging. This color is darker than I thought but works well for a lighter smoky eye look. 

 

This month’s polishes were super awesome! I find it hard to get too excited about nail polish but wow I love the colors. The green Waleska reminds me of a mermaid’s tail. The other two polishes, Avni and Katie are both so shimmery and pretty. I know I will use these shades a lot. The eye liner was surprisingly a win for me, I have been using it more frequently than I had thought that I would. I want to see what kinds of designs mavens come up with for the Wanderlust collection. Has anyone tried a fun design for their mani lately?
