Julep Nail Polish in January

Julep January (2 coats)

What's happening hot stuff? I know, I feel like I've been slacking a little on my daily life updates. Honestly it's been just working and doing paperwork. The story of my life. I will be going down to Charlotte this weekend to sample some wells, so that should be interesting. I've only sampled them in Cambodia, so it will be interesting to see how we do it in the US. Apparently some areas in North Carolina have high manganese in well water. So high, in fact, that it can be an issue for children and the elderly. The more you know...

Anyway, I've had this polish for almost a year, and I don't know why I didn't swatch it. January is your run of the mill tomato red creme with some jelly qualities to it. It's fine, but not exciting. You can probably find a much cheaper alternative at your local drugstore. I'm assuming it's named after January Jones, and boy is she a bad actress. I tried to get into Mad Men, but as soon as Don went to California in season 2 (?) I was done with the show. Maybe it got better, but I don't think I'm going to give it another chance.

Yea - this one is pretty ordinary - but still I love a good tomatoe red cream - it's a must in all polish collections unless someone hates reds and I always say to those folks they just have not found the red they have a comfort for...I used to think eons ago red was not for me - but I did not know way back then much about color and was trying to wear too blue of a red. I never got into Mad Men to much either. Liked the costumes and some of the acting but always ended up multi-tasking and not paying attention. Well water - a huge culprit out where I live. Eons ago when I was on a 10 mo contract with U of CA, I needed a summer job and always got hired with County Public Heath. I would do whatever as vacation fill in - a lot of environment health to working in the old sealed room for TB and rabies (since I had all my shots to get into the animal heads collected and needing monitoring for rabies. Where I live there is a ton of water wells - private and public ones. Not just the normal coliform bacterias either. Some reason I thought you only did soils but then soils does include ground water. Hear it's been still pretty warm down in the Carolinas. I am in LA right now doing the old City of Hope thing - rounds of new docs on my team. Too tired (no oomph) to go out to shop/look at polish. Pain is kind of killer right now so hobble to appts, then back to my little apartment here on the hospital campus. Next rounds of surgery and chemo start this Jan. Getting a new shingles shot today - I missed reading about that one coming on board. Had them once and don't want that again! Hope the home inspections are getting going and all comes back with better than expected reports.
