Julie G Bohemian Dreams nail polish collection nail art

Press Sample buttonHey everyone! My apologies for my late review of the 6 JulieG nail polishes from the Bohemian Dreams collection. Like I explained earlier this week, I’ve got a very mobile 7 month old, a terrorizing two-year old, and 2 older kids headed back to school next week. Oh, and our family is moving to another part of town. Yikes. Anyway, my time has been limited, not enough time to sit and do swatching. So….I’ve been wearing a lot of my manis for a few days lately, including all the manis I created with this collection. Long story short, I don’t have swatches of all the polishes BUT I do have manicures with all of them. Let’s get on with it, already. LOL!

A quick application note: all these cream polishes applied like buttah. Seriously. I mean, the colors aren’t revolutionary but I am a sucker for a great cream polish and all of these fit the bill. Continue reading
