Julep Debra Swatches & Review

Okay so I absolutely hate this one. Seriously! Debra is a Debbie Downer for me! I don’t know if I got a bad one but mine was a runny, messy nightmare to apply. I’m not the most patient when it comes to clean up of a mani so if it’s not quick & easy, I’m over it. I gave up on this one as you’ll see in the swatches. It also has a very strong smell that made me dizzy even thugh I was in the largest room of my home, very well ventilated. The color is beyond boring for me, it’s like looking at the walls in a really craptastic call center! If you’ve worked in one with the grey, muted decor…yea that’s what this nail polish reminds me of. I’ll pass!

Julep Simone Swatches & Review

I messed up while applying Simone in a hurry before I lost the sunlight but I like it! It’s really pretty, a pastel lilac with just the right amount of shimmer that any age group could be happy with it. It’s definitely a great color for a subtle Easter mani. It wasn’t too runny or too thick, like I said I just messed it up a bit in a rush. Simone is also included in the It Girl box.
