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.

Julie G White Orchid, Eden, Tropical | Be Happy And Buy Polish

This first mani I started with 2 coats of Julie G White Orchid [purchased myself]. I used a version of a dry brush technique with Eden [yellow green] and Tropical [brighter minty green]. I dropped blobs of each, then dragged a long nail art brush through it, wiping off the excess. Then I dragged the brush across each nail.

I then applied a pinwheel nail vinyl over that (after drying, of course) and sponged Karma on top. I adore how this turned out, it’s like vintage jungle print or something. 😀 Just goes to show you don’t need flashy polishes to have a flashy manicure!

Julie G Henna | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Speaking of flashy…next mani I created, I started with JulieG Henna, a purply brown – almost bruise toned but not quite. This has beautiful shine and coverage but did need 2 coats. This is 2 coats and no top coat.

I then used Indigo Bananas Sequins of Events with various decals from Sweet Lacquer Vinyls [press sample]. This turned out so pretty!

Julie G Harmony, Zoya Pixie Dust Alice, Crystal Parade nail gems, Polished Vino Silhouttes vinyls pedicure | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Next was actually a pedicure (that’s still on my feet!) with JulieG Harmony. This is really where that buttery application comes in handy because who wants a fussy cream polish when you’re trying to paint your toes?! Not this woman. 😉 This is 2 coats. I also used Zoya Pixie Dust Alice with Polished Vino silhouettes nail vinyls and Crystal Parade nail gems.

Julie G Aria | Be Happy And Buy Polish

And last was a disappointing manicure. Not because of the polish! But because my nail art skills have deteriorated. 😦 Anyway, I started with JulieG Aria – this is 1 coat and no top coat.

Julie G Faith and Aria brocade manicure | Be Happy And Buy Polish

I then used what I’m calling brocade nail vinyls with JulieG Faith. I really loved this tone on tone look but I wanted more. So I tried free-handing skulls on top of this and let’s just say….*stage whisper* it wasn’t pretty. I didn’t even take a picture of the ugliness!

The JulieG Bohemian Dreams collection is currently available at Rite-Aid Stores and Jesse’s Girl Cosmetics for $3.99.

Okay, I hope you forgive me for not showing you proper swatches of each but I hope you understand. 🙂 Let me know which of these manis is your favorite!
