I’m sorry I don’t more regularly post swatches of Julep polishes – I still get polishes every month but I don’t always post or talk about them because I have SO many other things I want to swatch and upload, and then suddenly my next box has already come!
Sometimes some of the colors aren’t all together that unique either so I don’t share them.
But November’s box was pretty cool so I thought I’d share with you 🙂
This month’s theme was Matte Suede colors, so they came out with 5 suede polishes along with some other creme finish polishes with fall themes. OPI is the only other brand of polish that I have this finish from, although I’m sure others have done it. When dry, the colors look like suede on the nail, but when painted over with a top coat, they have a crazy beautiful shimmer!
I actually really like this finish because it’s sort of a 2 for 1 deal, and I like matte polishes. I think they have a time and place, although I know a lot of people don’t like matte polishes. Since I like this finish, I decided to get some of the add-ons, which I will hopefully photograph and upload soon.
Most of the suede polishes from Julep were unique (to my collection) colors as well – by OPI I have Here Today Aragon Tomorrow (which is a shimmery green) and OPI Ink (bluish purple shimmer), so I got the box with colors that I don’t already have (which was the It Girl box, I’m normally a Classic With A Twist) and then added on the other colors I wanted.
This I actually bought because Holly raves about it whenever she talks about Julep or green polish. So happy I bought it!
Julep polishes are available at Sephora as well as on the Julep website. If you’re a Julep Maven, you can get polishes at their store (and only at their store) for about $11, otherwise they retail for $14. Also, if you’re wondering, you can add on polishes to your box for only $4.99 each but you have to add them on before your box ships. And these are polishes exclusive to add-on. There is always a link on your Maven page where you can change your box or add polishes on.
