Anyways, so this morning I painted my nails with Julep Robin (robin egg blue), which came in my June Boho Glam box. For my ring fingers, I used Julep Courteney (key lime green) that came in my mom's June American Beauty Box. I am still so in love with all the colors featured this month!
I had the intention of taking it off and then doing another nail art later on tonight. But then I took a detour to Sephora to exchange something. Every time I am there, I have a need to play around with their nail polishes. So I ended up using Sephora by OPI's I'm so Sari on top of Robin, which is described as "opaque turquoise with fine and chunky iridescent glitter". On top of Courteney, I used Sephora by OPI's It's Real 18K Gold Top Coat. If you have cash to burn, the top coat is $40! This reminds me of Rihanna's $5,000 manicure for the Grammy Awards. She painted her nails with a 24K gold polish! I guess if you put that into perspective, this polish is quite a steal!

I promised myself that as long as have my Julep Maven subscription active, I won't buy another polish ever again. But I can't help an amazing deal! I've been trying to look for a Tiffany's blue polish for quite some time and I was a little bit let down when I realized Julep Robin wasn't as close as I had hoped. I read a blog post a long time ago that did an in-depth analysis of "Tiffany Blue" polishes. The conclusion was that Essie's Turquoise and Caicos was one of the best matches. You should check out the post, it's actually really interesting.
Anyways, I went to TBBS to browse. The store is on Bay Street and Dundas Street in Toronto and it's one of the best places to get nail polishes. While Shoppers Drug Mart charges $11.99 for an Essie Polish, it is only $6.95 at TBBS. You can find some Essie polishes on sale for $3.99!

I ended up succumbing to the beauty of Essie's Turquoise and Caicos and made the purchase. I guess it's time for another Tiffany's nail art. Obviously it's going to be totally different from my last two attempts! I have a jewelry themed Konad plate that I haven't used yet! Also, I didn't realize it until now but Turquoise and Caicos has the same initials as Tiffany and Co. (T & C), do you think it's planned? Must be!
