Manicure Monday (julep oxygen treatment)

Okay, I know last week I promised a good Manicure Monday today! But 2 things happened:
1) I forgot it was Thanksgiving and I cooked my butt of yesterday and today - my hands and nails did not enjoy it!
2) Those stickers I used last week destroyed my nails - peeling and lifting a bunch of layers off:

Ugh - can you see - they are not in good shape. They are super uneven and a few have pieces that have peeled but not all the way off so they are really uneven! There is no way any polish will look good on my nails this week!

So I decided to do a treatment nail week using Julep's Oxygen Nail Treatment: Complete nail care and make-up all in one bottle. Made with a patented Hexanal formulation, nails are restructured to a stronger, thicker, and smoother condition in just one stroke. Advanced plant stem cell complex provides anti-aging benefits, while ground-breaking oxygen technology forms a nonocclusive film on the nail, proving resistant to water penetration and improving the permeability to oxygen. Results are nails that are structurally stronger, and less prone to breakage and splitting.

I received it in one of my Julep boxes and have used it once before - it works great! I applied 2 coats to each nail and just let try - no top coat or polish over top. It does at least have a light pink gleam to it so it doesn't look like I did nothing this week! 



So, sorry - nothing exciting on here today! Now for sure next week, once my nails are all healed up, I will have some cute nail art! Any ideas? I'm thinking maybe my second attempt at water marbling?

How was your Mani Monday?
