I’m not sure how I feel about Nessa. I got it in my May Maven box. It’s a pretty yellow foil. I’m just not sure I’m in love with it.
This is two coats and I still felt like I could see visible nail line. The cruddy part is that the brush was all frayed out at the end. It was shaped like a bell. The other foil that came with it also had a frayed brush so I wondered if for some strange reason they were supposed to look like that. I emailed Julep and they promptly sent me replacement brushes.
I initially put this on to do a cool design on top of it, but failed miserably so Nessa is all you get.
Is Julep just breaking in to the magnetic world? I didn’t think they had magnetic polishes, but was pleasantly surprised to get Kylie in my Maven box for May. The magnet came on a little stick, wand thing. It’s a wavy design, but the waves really only showed up on my thumb since it’s the biggest nail.
When I first polished this on, I wasn’t really impressed with the color. Once I set the magnet to it though? I love it! I love the darker shade made by the magnet. This really looks like shadows to me.
The formula for this polish was really thin. I had to be super careful with how much polish I had on my brush or my cuticles would flood. My only other critique is that I feel like the lines made by the magnet are too far apart. My nails aren’t super long right here, but they’re not terribly short either and I only got two stripes on each nail. It would be nice if they were a little closer together to fit more stripes in. Overall, I think Julep Kylie is a beautiful color once you set the magnetic effect.
