Julep Selena

Hi Friends! OH EM GEE I know, I know, you totally thought I deserted you, right?  Not at all!  I'm so sorry I've been away from blogging this past month.  I recently made a personal decision to go to college for my master's degree, and I have been knee deep in studying for entrance exams and filling out grad school applications.  People who work and go to school at the same time - you have my utmost respect!  This is CRAZY! 

Anyway, while I'm getting admitted - and hopefully attending! - grad school I know my free time will be limited, but I still want to hang out with you all at least once or twice a week.  I'm changing my polish less frequently of course, but I still have soooo many great polishes and collections I want to share with you!

Today I decided a little pampering was in order, so I used up an old Groupon to go and get a mani-pedi at a local salon.  It was not good, my friends.  Note to self - stop buying Groupons for untried businesses!  Money is tight these days, between grad school applications and friends and family sales everywhere, and I must be more frugal.  But, I digress - when I was getting my less-than-stellar mani, I brought with me a polish from my own collection, Julep SelenaSelena is a gorgeous yellow-green creme polish.  It reminds me a lot of China Glaze Trendsetter which I reviewed here, but without the shimmer and it's a noticeable shade more green.  One thing I continue to love about Julep polishes is that this was achieved with just one coat - can't beat that!

I don't know what it is about these mustard yellow/yellow-green lime/dirty olive colored polishes, but I am seriously in love with them all this season, and Julep Selena is no exception!

Julep Selena is currently available at Julep.com.  Julep polishes retail for $14 for 0.27fl oz bottle.  It's a little pricey, but there's always a discount code when you order from Julep!  Currently you can use code MARYROSE to receive $15 off an order of $30 or more. 

What do you think?  Are you loving Selena?  Does she make you think of the singer (I know she does for me!) And what yellow/green polishes are you loving this season?  Sound off in the comments below!
