Well as you can see I just couldn’t wait to try out the new polishes that I got in my Julep mystery box. I thought I would just try out one or two today, but I ended up swatching all five of them! I’m really pleased with this box… all of the colors are gorgeous.
I’m going to start with the polish that I thought was my least favorite in the bottle, but turned out to be one of my favorites once applied. This is Lauren, a HOT pink with a creme finish. I’m normally not a fan of bright polishes, but I really like this. It applied very smoothly and was pretty opaque with two coats, but I applied a third coat for good measure.
This is Sienna, a gorgeous shimmery gold. This one also had a great formula and only required two coats.
This is Cindy, an emerald green with gold micro-glitter. I wish I had this one before Christmas, it would be great for some holiday nail art. The little micro-glitters sure did get all over the place during removal though! It took a bit of work to get rid of it all.
This is Georgia, a shimmery peach.
And last, but not least, this is a mystery color with no name. This one has a semi-clear base with a grey/black tint and is loaded with different sized glitters. There are teeny tiny black glitters, and then larger orange and other metallic glitters. This one reminds me a bit of Halloween. I applied one coat of the mystery polish over two coats of OPI Black Onyx.
