JulieG 9 to 5

Rite Aid, will you please come to Florida? I think those of us without Rite Aids in our area are really missing out. They seem to have quite the selection of brands that other stores like Walgreens and CVS don't have like Jesse's Girl. JulieG polishes are made my Jesse's Girl, and quite a few caught my eye. My parents were kind of enough to pick me up some of these while they were in California last month. This color is unlike any other I've seen.

9 to 5


9 to 5 is a bright pastel cantaloupe-orange creme.

Is this color weird or what? It does absolutely wonky things with my skin tone, but I can't help but love this color. I do not own any other colors like this or even close this. I can't even think of a color similar to this. It is really very unique. I thought the formula on this was average, what I'd expect for a drugstore polish. It was a bit tricky considering it is pastel, but nothing I was not expecting. Cool polish for sure!

The JulieG line has a handful of really great color polishes, and so does Jesse's Girl. I so wish I had a Rite Aid here. I would love to have more access to this brand. You can order these online from the Jesse's Girl website. They are $3.99. I'll probably take advantage of that in the future, but shopping in person is so much more fun!

P.S. JulieG is a makeup guru on Youtube. I remember watching her videos back in 2008. She mentioned nail polish in her videos back then, and it caused me to take a second look at nail polish. I can't credit her completely for my now undying love for polish, but her mention of it definitely propelled my interest!

Happy Tuesday!

  1. This looks beautiful!  Is it similar to China Glaze Peachy Keen or Essie Van D' Go?

  6. This is fun. I miss CVS! I used to live in FL and when I recently went back in May I went to like 15 CVS stores looking for those exclusive Milani polishes, lol. We have a few Rite Aids around here; if there is something you want, let me know!

  9. This one might fall into that too much chalky white in the base for me to pull off. You can have my Rite Aide. It's the absolute worst one I ever have been in. But since I live rural and it's the only drug store (chain or otherwise) around, we put up with it. Least I can get cheap rainbow sherbert there! But far as getting in polish lines/collections that other folks say they got at their Rite Aide - nope, not here! I see a few Jessie Girl's but more than half of the Essie collections never end up here locally.

  19. Oh no that stinks. I know my parents got me this one in at the Rite Aid in Morro Bay. I think you mentioned you lived around the Central Coast? I'm not sure if that's the one closest to you though!

  24. They used to have a RiteAid just around the corner from the Seminole Town Center mall, but then it became a CVS. I also fondly remember Eckerd (sp) that had a great beauty selection. Sigh...
