Julep Nessa

24 May

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.

Julep Kylie

2 May

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.
