Alexa S. - I’ve got to say, I’m REALLY excited about this week of posts! I love the nail colors you’ve picked out — they’re so bright and colorful and just get me all excited to do my nails 😉

Cassie G - I loved Starstruck but haven’t started book 2 yet! I have it on my NetGalley though, so I’m very excited to start it!

AND I just started Reality Boy this week, so I loved that pick! The colors are excellent and now I just want them all!

Sara (of The Page Sage) - I love the cover of Reality Boy and your choices for the nail polishes are perfect!

Annie - This is so cool! I still have yet to read Starstruck but I will definitely. I love books set in the thirties and the fact that it’s also in Hollywood makes it even better! I don’t think the yellow would look good on my nails either but I really love the turquoise. I also must try black and gray – I don’t usually wear darker colours but it’d be good to experiment a little!

Alexa S. - Marion and Evelyn are LOVELY colors. You girls are making me want to go and order them from Julep! Seriously. As always, love this post — though not so much the fact that it makes me want to shop for books and nail polish, lol.

Lisa Schensted - THAT PURPLE OMG. Evelyn is GORGEOUS.

Lucy - Can’t wait to read both of these books! Really nice polish pairings too. Inspiring!

Jen @ Books and Other Happy Ever Afters - I just read BEING SLOANE JACOBS and loved it! And I am SO loving the nail polish choices, especially “something blue”! And I’ve actually never heard of WHEN I WAS THE GREATEST, but I very much like the pairing you’ve done with the colors, like “catrina”. I need Julep nail polishes! Lovely post, ladies 🙂

Jess - I love the warm/cool tones of all these covers. That Something New is calling my name !

January 5, 2014 - 8:16 am

Cassie - OMG. YES. TO ALL OF THIS.

All colors are gorgeous and i am soooo looking forward to both books, particularly the latter cuz it sounds so interesting!!

As always. Adore this feature!!!
