Bespoke nail polish made by hand that is 3-free, is…
So I’m a little tardy to the party on posting my Julep Maven box for December, which is aptly named the Countdown Collection! And with last month’s box, we were all introduced to Orbital eyeshadows. They’re sparkly, shifty and super gorgeous!
I chose the Bombshell box which came with 2 polishes and an eyeshadow, and since I couldn’t decide on a shade I added on an extra Orbital shadow too.
PAULA is a persian blue with gold microshimmer.
SOLEIL is a lustrous rose gold chrome.
Swatched 2 times, it has a nice satin matte sheen. It did tend to streak a bit so I had to use light and quick strokes to even it out. And as with most chromes, it does show any imperfections you may have on the surface of your nails.
EQUINOX is a pewter with silvery purple pearlescence.
Swatched dry on the left, damp on the right. Shown under studio light, this has a very nice warm silver taupe sheen. I don’t see much purple though.
SUPERNOVA is described as a charcoal with electric orchid pearlescence, but to me it is more of a burgundy to bright purple multi-chrome.
The texture and formula of these shadows is phenomenal. Not much glitter fall-out and it’s really buttery, rich and pigmented.
This month’s box has made me an extremely happy camper. I have been culling my list of subscriptions, but Julep has definitely made the cut.
