It’s Not Black, It’s Blue

Julep “Maylee” is the first polish I selected from this month’s box. It’s described as midnight navy with gold microshimmer – and when they say microshimmer, they mean it. The shimmer is very, very understated and the light has to hit it just right. It’s so blue, it’s nearly black!

I was extremely careful when I painted my nails – I was able to get very clean edges and not stain my skin, as sometimes happens with these dark polishes. I was expecting less coverage from such a thin polish, but it covered like a champ. This is just two coats over Julep Oxygen Bonding Base Coat (I cracked open a new bottle – nothing like the first coat out of the bottle). I finished with “HK Girl” – so shiny!
