First Photos in Light Box using Julep Madison!

Check it out!  My first photos in my new light box!   I have been playing around, getting used to it.  I can already see the quality of photos I am taking improving by leaps and bounds.  Yay!    I really wanted to use a color that would photograph well.  So I chose to use a solid, bright color that I knew would be photogenic.  The color I used is Julep Madison.  I got it in my most recent Julep Maven box, and originally was not all that excited about it.  But when I got it on, that was a different story.  I am obsessed with this color!  I love 1940's styling; makeup, hair, and clothing.  This polish looks like it would be from that time, I could totally see a woman from back then wearing it.  I would describe it as a red with a bit of a coral color to it.  I have had it on for days because it looks so timeless, and makes me happy every time I look at it.   If there had to be a down side, it would be the finish.  I don't know if it is supposed to be like this, but the finish without a top coat is very flat and plastic-y looking.  But with a great top coat it is killer!  I cant wait to use it again!


  1. Very retro -- all you need now is some red lipstick!

  2. What a great classic color. Your photos look nice, too!
