I've got an interesting combo for you today. I am still part of the Julep Maven program but I usually only get the box every other month or so because I'm never thrilled with the stuff in it. The last box I received was Oscar's themed and came with a dark chocolate "Academy Award", two polishes (Demi and Oscar), and Julep Topcoat for Hair (which is what I really wanted). Anywho, I always end up putting them on the back burner to try but I was in the mood for a red recently so I thought Demi would be perfect:
Demi is a dark red-wine jelly polish that is a must-have for any red fan. I really am loving jellies more and more every time I get one to try because the formulas are always so good. I wish I could find more in colors I love! This jelly polish is super pigmented and only needed 2 coats for full coverage, but I think I could've just stuck to one if I had been in a hurry. The only bad thing about this polish is that I had a hard time cleaning it up around my cuticles. However, it didn't end up staining my nails really so I guess I just need to be more careful!
I decided to pair this polish with one coat of Julep Oscar: a gold glitter in a clear base and here's how it turned out:
