My son has a slight obsession with the Pinkalicious books  so when I was trying to decide what manicure to do last night, he told me I needed pink nails to go with his new level 1 reader set that we got him at Barnes & Noble.

So here is my pinkalicious nails!  This is two coats of Julep Niecey, a hot pink stunner with a coat of Red Carpet Lacquer Oz, Not Kansas - a beautiful glittery rainbow - overtop.

This is a fun sparkly combo that if I had a daughter, she would probably love!  My son did declare these were great pinkalicious nails.

One issue I had with the manicure was that 2 hours after doing this manicure and going to bed, I woke up with 2 of my nails completely jacked up with sheet marks or pushing.  I'm not sure if this is due to the sparkly top coat (and not waiting long enough before top coating it) or my trying out NYC top coat, but once I get to the bottom of which one caused the drying issues, I'll report back.

Julep polishes can be purchased at their online store: .  Sephora has also started carrying Julep polishes.  I received this through their Maven program, which gives you great discounts on their polishes.  If you would like to try out the program, you can use my link
which would give me a discount on future boxes:  .  Red Carpet Lacquers can be purchased at her Etsy store:

  1. OMG, beautiful! My daughter is a Pinkalicious fan! But I made her read purplilicious because purple is my FAV:)

    1. We have them all, I think Silverlishious is his favorite. He like Purpleliscious too.

  2. Not sure if you found your go-to top coat yet but I swear by Essie Good to Go!

    1. I use Seche for glitter bombs and Nails Inc for regular manis, I needed more Nails Inc so I thought I'd try a different alternative. The polish that must not be named was my unfortunate choice. I'll keep Essie in mind for next time.
