Shame on you, Julep...

While I was on Facebook tonight, I saw a post from someone in one of the polish groups I belong to, who wanted to get our opinions on a blog post they found.

Julep did a blog post on December 9th called "French Tip with a Chic and Modern Twist". 
Now, just in case this blog post "disappears" overnight, here's a screen shot of what we all saw...

http://i40.tinypic.com/15mln2p.jpg - top half of the page
http://i39.tinypic.com/25a27uq.jpg - bottom half of the page

And here's the actual blog address which *should* go directly to the post. If it doesn't, the post has been removed:

***UPDATE***: When you click on Julep's link above, the post is back (it was removed right after I wrote this post), with photos that HAVE watermarks. In case you missed it on Julep's FB page on Monday evening, Julep's CEO and Founder, Jane Park, admitted to cropping the photos and using them without permission. THEN, she re-posts the article with NEW, watermarked photos. Listen Janey, I appreciate the apology, but you screwed up. Big time. I promise to NEVER purchase a Julep product again.

And for anyone interested, THIS is how Miss Jane decided to address her FB followers last night. As you can see, it goes from,
"Hey guys - we have not

 and would NEVER deliberately crop out watermarks or do anything else that 

would be so dishonest." to  "I'm really sorry we goofed. You guys are right - we

 fixed it as quickly as humanly possible to the way it should have been in the 

first place. Thanks for pointing out this error. We really and truly meant no 

harm and this will never happen again."

If you're interested, here's a direct link to the FB post from Monday evening.

Those of us who are polish-aholics and especially those of us who blog about nail polish or have blogged in the past are familiar with Chloe's Nails. Erika, the creator and author of Chloe's Nails, is one of the most talented bloggers I've ever come across. There are a few bloggers that really inspired me to become a blogger - Erika is one of those people. Her pictures are impeccable. They are always perfectly crisp and clean and I can never find anything wrong with them. Even when I don't like the polish colors/combinations she uses, I still appreciate each and every manicure she does. She always makes it look so easy! 

Check out this really neat post Erika did back in February! 

Look familiar?
What's really sad, is Julep took the time to REMOVE Erika's watermark that she took time to add to her photo. She added the watermark so that people wouldn't STEAL her photos and not give her credit for them!

I can't take credit for finding this post, but here is another blogger-victim whose pictures appear to be cropped and re-posted on Juleps blog: 

I haven't been able to make a connection with the 3rd picture used. If this looks familiar, please feel free to post your comments below.

To those of you who have followed Paws to Polish for a while, you know that all of my other posts have stuck to reviews and swatches. I've never used my blog as an outlet for my feelings. But I felt that it was important to get this information out to all of you, so that you can see what a dishonest company Julep is. Julep now has the opportunity to make things right by giving credit to these bloggers by simply including their blog address. Let's see how they choose to handle the situation. Talk about a PR nightmare!

Oh, and a little word of friendly advice to my polish and blogging friends: Please take the time to watermark your photos. I know it's a pain and it's a step that we all want to skip, but it's worth it. Even though Julep used these photos without permission, they were watermarked originally, which proved who they really belonged to. And I promise, if I see that one of your photos is being used without your watermark and/or permission, I will stand up for you and your work, and I would hope that you would do the same. We polish-aholics stick together!

OPI "Sapphire in the Snow"

Good morning, guys and gals! Happy Sunday! I woke up to see a little bit of frost on my car windshield this morning - winter's on it's way!

Today's post is looooong overdue. I can't believe I waited so long to share OPI's "Sapphire in the Snow" with you! It's probably one of my all-time favorite OPI cremes ever. In fact, it's one of those polishes that I rarely use, because I don't want it to ever run out! 

I feel very fortunate to have found this beauty about a year ago at my local beauty supply store. It was in a gift set with "Merry Midnight". I really only wanted SitS, but the sales clerk could only sell me the set (which came with a free silver cuff bracelet!). Who'da thunk that both of these polishes would become some of my favorite OPI's?! This is one of my only polishes that I feel I need a back-up bottle of. If it weren't going for so much on eBay, I might buy a bottle today. But I'll wait to see if I can find another bottle dusty-hunting some day. Fingers crossed!

Although the name is "Sapphire in the Snow", it's not a sapphire-colored polish. Instead, it's more of a purple-blue. When "Road House Blues" from the Touring America Collection came out earlier in the year, I thought (more like HOPED!) that it was just SitS re-named. RHB is more of a true blue creme; it's bluer than SitS. Regardless, they're both some pretty awesomely gorgeous cremes!

OPI Chip Skip
1 coat OPI Nail Envy, Original Formula
2 coats of OPI "Sapphire in the Snow"
1 coat of Poshe' Super-Fast Drying Topcoat

And here's a little sneak-peek of my next post...

Last night, at Target, I found this cute little holiday dog t-shirt and couldn't pass it up at only $2.50. As you know, I only have cats...
My little Snow Princess!
She might not look happy, but I really do think she likes her new t-shirt!

Well, enjoy the rest of your Sunday! Thanks for stopping by!

4 Swatch Comparisons - China Glaze, Zoya, L'Oreal and Revlon!

It's SATURDAY!!!! Yaaaaay! Except for getting a run in this morning, I have nothing else on my to-do list today! I love weekends like this!

I wanted to show you all a comparison I did of 4 polishes that appear to be similar to each other in the bottle, but that are actually quite different on the nail. I picked up Revlon's "Mistletoe" a couple of weeks ago at Walgreens and once I got home, I wondered how much it looked like one of my all-time favorites, China Glaze "Wagon Trail" (but I just never got around to comparing the two). Then, just tonight, I thought about two others that are kind of close: Zoya "Edyta" and L'Oreal "Owl's Night". So, while I was thinking about it and had time, I thought I'd swatch all 4 to show you how alike and different they are.

China Glaze "Wagon Trail", Zoya "Edyta", 
L'Oreal "Owl's Night", Revlon "Mistletoe"

Same order for the swatch photos below:

I used 2 coats of each color in the photos above (no top coat or base coat).

Which one is your favorite of these 4 colors? I'd have to say that my favorite is still Wagon Trail. Up next is Owl's Night, followed by Mistletoe, then Edyta.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, everyone!

Thanks for stopping by!

OPI "Chatters Me Up" vs. Orly "Rococo A-Go-Go" - - - PICTURE HEAVY!

Happy Friday, everyone! I LOVE these 4-day work weeks!  :-)

I hope all of my US friends had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday! My day was pretty low-key, but quite long. I volunteered to be a balloon handler in the annual St. Louis Thanksgiving Day parade downtown. I even made it on TV (there was just a close-up shot of me walking, no interview!)! It's a lot of fun to be a part of, but it's very early in the morning, and it was reeeeeeally, reeeeeally cold yesterday morning. After that, my mom and I went and had Thanksgiving dinner at a nearby restaurant. After that, we went and saw The Muppets movie! It was so cute! I wish I had painted my nails in one of my Muppets polishes!

When I got home from work tonight, I had a lovely package from Canada from my friend Linda! She was kind enough to purchase a bottle of the Chatters exclusive OPI polish, "Chatters Me Up". I don't even know what a Chatters is (I'm thinking it's similar to a Trade Secret or Beauty Brands?), but I know that this polish was only being sold at the Chatters salons, so my only way of getting a bottle was if I knew someone in Canada - and lucky for me, I do!

Before my package arrived, I had heard that "Chatters Me Up" was a dupe (or very close dupe) of the new Orly "Rococo A-Go-Go", which I already had, but never tried. So, as soon as I opened my package, I knew I wanted to see for myself how close the two are.

Sure enough, they are almost exact dupes...

L to R on all hand pictures: Orly, OPI, Orly, OPI
(no base coat or top coat used)

What do you think? In the bottle, they don't look like dupes. But on the hands, it's my opinion that they do.

My reason for posting so many pictures is because there aren't a lot of pictures of "Chatters Me Up" online. Before I decided to purchase this, I wanted to check out swatch pictures, first. If I remember correctly, there was only one blog post which showed pictures of CMU. And at the time, there were no swatch comparisons of it with the Orly polish. 

Because I'm such an OPI hoarder/collector (just all-around FAN of OPI!), I'm not regretting buying CMU (even though it was the most expensive OPI I've ever bought!). I love it, and am anxious to wear it soon. That said, the Orly version *might* just have to go in the swap pile, since there's no need for me to own both.

Have a fantastic weekend, and thanks for stopping by to check out this post!

Orly - "Androgynie"


Currently on my nails is "Androgynie" from Orly's new Holiday Soiree' Collection.

When I first laid eyes on Androgynie, I fell in love. I had seen pictures on The PolishAholic's website from when she went to Cosmoprof in Vegas in July. I was so anxious to see it for myself in person, I didn't think I could wait 3 or 4 months for it to be available!

So needless to say, when I did finally find the collection at Sally's a couple of weeks ago, I knew I needed Androgynie. The others in the collection, in my opinion, are very "passable", and I don't plan on buying any of them.

I've seen/heard some very mixed reviews of Androgynie from nail polish bloggers. Some are just head over heels for it, others are disappointed with the final results. I, myself, may have found a new favorite polish that will never - ever - go in the "swappable" pile! I LOVE it! It's so unique and unlike any of my other polishes!

Based on the pictures I had seen previously, I knew I wanted to layer Androgynie over a black creme polish to avoid it's jelly-like formula. My only complaint about this mani is that I didn't wrap my tips when I was applying the black creme polish. It looks like I have a lot of tip wear here, but I just forgot a step in my mani! Otherwise, this was a breeze to apply. I used 2 coats of Poshe' topcoat because it was still a little bit rough after 1 coat of top coat. Some have said that Orly polishes take longer to dry, but since I used the Poshe', my mani was completely dry within minutes.

OPI Chip Skip
2 coats of OPI Nail Envy, Original Formula
2 coats of OPI Black Onyx
1 coat of Orly Androgynie
2 coats of Poshe' Super-fast Drying Topcoat

What do you think? Are there any colors from this collection that you're anxious to get your hands on, or that you already own? Which ones?!

OPI's "Parlez-vous OPI?" and China Glaze "Below Deck" Comparison

Well hello!

Today's post is going to be short and sweet...

A friend of mine on Facebook recently wanted to see a comparison of OPI's "Parlez-vous OPI?" and China Glaze's "Below Deck" to see how similar they are. As you may know, PVO was part of OPI's 2008 Fall Collection de France (one of my favorite OPI collections!). I purchased mine at my local grocery store (I know, total diversion...) and am so glad I snatched it up when I did. It's quite hard to find, and is going for some pretty crazy prices on Amazon and eBay. I purchased Below Deck recently from a local beauty supply store. This one isn't as hard to find (yet!), since it was part of China Glaze's 2011 Anchor's Away Collection which was released earlier in the year. 

I never realized how close the two were until my friend requested a side-by-side comparison.

Sorry about the messy painting. I literally just slapped on a couple of coats of each and snapped some pictures quickly. 

But as you can see, they are very close, but not dupes. PVO is much more "purple-y", where BD has a hint of taupe in it. I can't believe I'm saying this, but I think I prefer the color of Below Deck over Parlez-vous OPI. Normally, I'm all about the OPI's, but this time, CG wins! That said, I'm not giving my bottle of PVO up to anyone!

Essie - "Bobbing for Baubles"

Today's post is for one of my new favorites, "Bobbing for Baubles" from Essie's 2011 Winter Collection, Cocktail Bling.

Essie describes this color as "a deepest darkest sapphire". To me, it doesn't scream sapphire. It's more of a dusty gray-navy blue creme. That said, it's still pretty awesome. I got a lot of compliments on it when I wore it recently. I love the fact that it's a dark shade (as you know, I LOVE dark shades, especially blues!), but it's not black, and doesn't look black when you're wearing it. One of the women who complimented me when I was wearing it asked, "Oh, is that teal? It's amazing!". I didn't mind, because she didn't ask if it was black!

If you've never tried Essie before, you really should. It's one of my favorite brands of polish that never seems to disappoint. If you're looking to try Essie and not spend a lot, Beauty Brands has a bunch of their polish on clearance right now, since they will no longer be carrying the brand (*sad face*). Normally, they retail for around $8/bottle.

Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips - Kitty, Kitty

Happy Sunday, everyone! Man, this weekend seems to have flown by! Hope you've been enjoying it! Today, our kickball team plays in the playoff games! Pretty exciting that we've come this far!

Today I wanted to show you my first attempt at the Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips that I used for Halloween. For Halloween, I decided to go as the "Crazy Cat Lady". The costume itself seemed easy to put together, but I was racking my brain trying to figure out which polish would be perfect to wear. When I was at Wal-Mart the day before my Halloween party, I came across the Sally Hansen Salon Effects display and noticed they had these cheetah print strips! For $8, I thought it was worth it to see what all the hype was about. Ok, confession: I actually bought 2 packages of these, just in case I really messed up and needed to open another package. But the good news, is I have an unopened package that I can use when I want a fun, frisky, quick manicure! :-)

Now that I've applied them and worn them for more than a couple days, I feel that I can give an honest review about them. First, application was pretty easy! You literally just match up a strip to the nail that would fit it the best. It's better to be a little big than too small because you can always "trim" the extra off. I had no problem with the sizing of the strips. But I will say, don't even bother saving any of the unused strips, because after they've come out of their safety-sealed packaging, they're only "fresh" for a short while. 

I was able to get about 4 days wear out of them before I decided to remove them. Actually, I probably could've gotten longer wear out of them, but I just wanted to change my polish. I did not use a base coat when applying these. Instead, I cleaned my nails very good with Zoya Remove + and waited a couple of minutes for them to get nice and dry. Also, I did not use a top coat after I applied these, either. Honestly, I wasn't sure if I should or not, but I definitely didn't need to. Once they were on the nail, they were on good! 

I would absolutely buy these again for special occasions. They'd be perfect if you were going on vacation and wanted a long-lasting manicure. Or, if you had a special event (wedding, dance, party, etc.) that you wanted a fresh looking, chip-resistant manicure for. I will say, I used strips with a design on them, so it allowed for me to make mistakes without anyone noticing. I'd want to practice a little more before I tried using a one-color strip.

Have you tried the Sally Hansen Salon Effects strips? Or, have you tried another brand of strips? If so, what did you think? Would you try them again?

Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips retail for around $8 and can be purchased where most drugstore brand polishes are sold (Walgreens, Ulta, Target, Wal-Mart).

Glitter Fun!

Since I already had a great base color on (Butter London "Big Smoke"), I thought it might be fun to experiment with some of my untried glitter polishes!

From L to R: OPI "Rainbow Connection", OPI "Simmer & Shimmer", OPI "Gone Gonzo!", OPI "Absolutely Alice", OPI "Last Friday Night". 

I should be ashamed of myself for never wearing any of these - I've got some awesome glitter polishes that need to be worn more often! I think my favorite one is Absolutely Alice!

Butter London "Big Smoke"


I first wanted to apologize for being M.I.A for the past 32 days. But, thank you all for sticking around! I thought I would've lost a few followers due to my lack of activity, but everyone stayed - thank you! :-)

Tonight, I want to show you all my first Butter London, "Big Smoke". I bought this beauty on September 20th during Ulta's buy 1, get one free one-day-only sale. I only remember the date because it was my 30th birthday! Thanks, Ulta! I ended up getting 4 bottles total; it was my little birthday present to myself!

The formula was really nice; it wasn't too thin or too thick. I felt that because the brush was so small, I found myself re-dipping quite often. But, I only needed two coats to achieve full opacity (yay!). As I was browsing my polish collection, trying to decide on a color to wear, I noticed that I have a bunch of blues and blackened blues in my collection. I feel like I have a color very similar to this already (maybe an OPI or Nicole by OPI?). I'll try to report back with my findings. 

But the question is, "Was it worth the $14/bottle price tag?" No. Unless BL goes on sale again where I can get them for $7 (or less) a bottle, I don't see myself buying any more anytime soon. That said, they do have a Limited Edition color called "The Black Knight" that's out right now that I'd love to get my hands on. Maybe I'll find it at Ulta and will have a coupon! Wishful thinking!

Zoya Remove +
OPI Nail Envy, Sensitive and Peeling Formula
2 coats of Butter London's "Big Smoke"
1 coat of Poshe' Super Fast Drying Topcoat
OPI RapiDry Spray

Do you have any Butter London's? What's your favorite BL shade?

L'Oreal - Owl's Night


Sorry I've been a little MIA lately. I haven't been painting my nails much (*gasp*), since I recently trimmed them down. But now that they're back to a nicer length, I wanted to try out one of my new beauties, "Owl's Night" from L'Oreal's Project Runway Collection that was recently released. I found this a few weeks ago at Walgreen's, right as they were putting the display out. I loved the color so much, I bought 2 bottles (they were BOGO 1/2 off!). After I got home with my new polish, I started searching online for information about it, and learned that it had already become HTF. So, when I saw another bottle a couple of days later, I bought that one, too! I ended up only buying two colors from this collection - "Owl's Night" and "Raven's Strength" which is kind of a smokey navy blue shimmer. I can't wait to try out that one, either!!!

I'll let the pictures do the talking with this polish. But I did want to mention one thing - the tip wear.. I applied this polish last night and took pictures right after I was done. I wore the polish all day today and am noticing quite a bit of tip wear on my nails. Except for using a new top coat (Poshe Top Coat), I didn't really do anything out of the ordinary with this mani and I wasn't overly hard on my hands and nails today. Maybe it's the polish, maybe it's the top coat, who knows? Just thought I'd mention it.

Deborah Lippman 2 Second Nail Primer
2 coats of OPI Nail Envy, Original Formula
2 coats of L'Oreal "Owl's Night"
1 coat of Poshe Super-Fast Drying Top Coat

I've gotta say, except for the bad tip wear, I was really, really impressed with this polish. This was my first bottle of L'Oreal nail polish I've ever purchased (nice price, btw!). Ya know, come to think of it, a lot of the drugstore brands have really stepped up their game lately and have come out with some pretty awesome collections (Maybelline, Wet 'n Wild and Revlon come to mind immediately). Nice job, L'Oreal - looking forward to what you've got coming for us in the future! 

What do you think about this new shade from L'Oreal? Have you ever tried other colors of theirs before? If not, why?

Barielle Promotional Video - With a Picture of My Nails!

Hi, everyone!

So, I was on Barielle's Facebook page tonight, and I saw a link to a promotional video of theirs on their wall. I decided to click on it and after watching for a little over a minute, I saw a picture of MY NAILS!!!!! Yes, the swatch picture of "Berry Blue" that I submitted in their Mani Pedi Monday Contest about a month ago is included in their promotional video!

Here's a link to the video. You can either watch from the beginning (there are tons of neat swatch photos!) or you can skip to 1:09 to see my picture.

Just wanted to share the cool news!

Have a great week!

Revlon - "Facets of Fuchsia"

Happy Sunday, everyone! Hope you've been enjoying your first Fall weekend of the year! Here in St. Louis, the weather has been absolutely gorgeous! As my mom always says, "If the weather were like this all year-round, we wouldn't be able to afford to live here!" Fall is definitely my favorite season of the year. I just hope we get a full Fall this year, and we don't get ice and snow too early!

Today, I wanted to share with you my mani of the day: Revlon's Facets of Fuchsia. I recently purchased this at Target for around $4. Except for wearing Revlon's Perplex, I don't have a lot of experience with their polishes. But let me tell ya, so far, so good! Talk about an all-around bargain! I just was amazed at their quality, and am quite impressed with their color selections! And you can't beat their price and availability!

Facets of Fuchsia is supposed to be a dupe of Deborah Lippman's Bad Romance. Now, I can't claim this to be true, since I don't own Bad Romance. Based on the swatch pictures I've seen online though, I think it's safe to say they're close to identical. If you like BR but don't want to fork out the $18 for a bottle, go get yourself a bottle of FoF - you won't be disappointed! But go quick - this is a Limited Edition color from Revlon and won't be around long!

I layered FoF over 2 coats of OPI Black Onyx. I didn't want any VNL and I was afraid it was going to be sheer, so I figured I'd be safe and just layer it over black. 

I do recommend using either Poshe or Gelous Top Coat (I used both for this mani!). They will smooth out your nail and give you a high-gloss shine! 

Deborah Lippman 2 Second Nail Primer
1 coat OPI Nail Envy, Original Formula
2 coats of OPI Black Onyx
1 coat of Revlon Facets of Fuchsia
1 coat of Gelous Nail Gel Coat
1 coat of Poshe Super-Fast Drying Top Coat
CND SolarSpeed Spray

Thanks for stopping by! 

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Hi, everyone! Happy Wednesday! 

I know a lot of you were hoping I would have announced the winner of this giveaway yesterday (my actual birthday), but I had a very, very busy day.

Before I announce the winner, I want to thank ALL of you who entered my 30th Birthday Giveaway! I had such a fun time reading the responses you all left with your favorite birthday memory. Some of you also left cute little jokes, messages or funny stories and I enjoyed reading those, too!

I am a member of various nail polish Facebook groups and also post on OPI, Zoya and China Glaze's Facebook page every now and then. I decided that to keep things fair and to give everyone the same opportunity to find out about the winner, I would only post it here on my blog. 

The winner of my giveaway will have 48 hours to respond to the e-mail that will be sent. If I do not hear from them within 48 hours, a new winner will be chosen and contacted.

Without further adieu, the winner of my 30th Birthday Giveaway is......

Barielle - "Berry Blue"

Hey, gals! Happy Monday! Maybe I should say "Happy Barielle Mani Pedi Monday"!

For those of you who aren't familiar with the brand Barielle, they have a Facebook page where they do Mani Pedi Monday contests and fans can submit their Mani/Pedi Barielle pictures.

I submitted a photo today of my "Berry Blue" mani. I LOVE this color! It was such a BREEZE to apply. The best way I can describe this color is like a watery creme (but not a jelly). It's a great polish that was super easy to work with! And the color is divine! This is just the PERFECT color for fall, too! Lovin' it!

Here's the picture I submitted:

Here's a direct link to their Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/barielle

Before you can vote, you first have to "Like" their page. Then, please "Like" my photo! :-)

Thanks for your support!

Have a great night,
