It’s Not Black, It’s Brown
Julep “August” is the final polish from February’s box. Much like “Maylee” – “August” looks black, but it really dark, dark brown. Julep calls it chocolate cherry ghost shimmer. The shimmer is barely there, you have to look really, REALLY hard.
This is two coats over Julep Oxygen Bonding Base Coat and under “HK Girl”. Also like “Maylee”, “August” lasted a really long time – longer than I wanted it to.
My paternal grandfather’s name was August, but he died before I was born. My mom said she felt sorry for him when my grandmother hit him over the head with a frying pan…until he said she was mad at him for going “to the cathouse”.
