I've been lucky to try Julep products thanks to a wonderful friend.
I took this picture from my Instagram. She sent me three different products from Julep; oil cleanser, eyeliner, and nail polishes.
Julep in Stevie. Since I did a thorough review of Julep in Renee, I will base this on that.
OPI Nail Envy in Original, Formula X For Sephora Base Coat, 2 coats of Julep in Stevie, and topped it off with CND Vinylux Weekly Top Coat.
Now for my overall opinion... First of all, the consistency of the product is on the medium. It's not too thick that I have to paint quickly before the polish dries. It's also not thin that it runs and I need a lot of layers. It's a great consistency that I can take my time and paint carefully. With that said, it goes on smoothly and there's no streaking and bubbles. Secondly, this is a great fall/winter color. Even though from the pictures, it looks like it's my first time using this. Its actually isn't. It's my second time wearing this color. I wore it first on Manicure Monday: Julep's Winterize Your Nails. One thing about Julep polishes is that you can see the polish decreasing with each usage. For some people they might not like it knowing it cost a decent amount. For me who has a lot of polishes when I see products decrease, I feel productive. I know that sounds strange but makeup fanatics and beauty bloggers will understand. Lastly, I noticed chipping especially at the ends of the tips on the fifth day. With that said, it's not huge chips. It's slight and not that noticeable with a first glance.
Would repurchase: Yes.
