Julep Swatches

The day I won the Saved By The Bell giveaway, I also happened to win another giveaway from the lovely lady behind And Then There Was Polish!! This time it was a surprise box filled with wonderful goodies!!  <<<BIG FAT THANK YOU TO HER!!


Included in this box, were not only FOUR Julep polishes, Kiss Nail Dress strips, a pack of mini scented cuticle oils, striping tape, chevron nail striping tapes, julep lotions, pedicure toe foam separators, a cute little valentine with sweetheart candies, a super sweet thank you note as well as a pot of glitter that exploded and made everything glittertastic. <<<<That wasn't supposed to happen!

I was SUPER excited about getting some Julep polish because I haven't tried them yet and I have heard wonderful things about them!

The first polish i tried out was the super dark vampy plum-y purple "Viola"  It was very easy to apply and was completely opaque in two coats. It looks nearly black in most lights, but in some lighting, you can tell it's actually purple.

Up next is Stella, and boy was Stella a pain to photograph! Applied like a dream but good grief not easy to capture the true color! It reminds me of a 'softer' mustardy yellow if you will. Almost like potato salad, where mayo and mustard mix... 

The middle shot taken is about as true to color as i could capture...

Up next is Popova, from the Trina Turk 2012 Fall collection. It is a super pretty creamy kelly green. Again, applied like a dream, but thankfully wasn't anywhere near as difficult as Stella to capture in color.

Again, the middle shot is pretty true to color.

Lastly, We have Colbie, a really pretty glitter...that refused to show it's green hues...i had a very difficult time trying to capture the green shimmer..all i was getting was the gold. But i promise, it's got green to it! 

Here you can see where i've layered it over Stella and Popova.. One coat.

Overall, I thought these were great polishes, not so cooperative when it came time to photograph, but good quality for sure! The lotions are wonderful as well as the cuticle oils. I haven't used the Kiss nail dress or the striping tapes, but when i do, i'll be sure to blog about it!

Thanks for stopping by!
