This was like the hardest nail color to photograph. Maybe because I didn’t go stand by the window like I normally do. I had to do some color correction on the photo to get it close, although it still is slightly bluer-toned and slightly lighter than it actually is. Anyway, without further ado: Julep Simone (which I purchased myself).
Anyway, I LOVE this color. I love the pinkish purple color of this polish. The product also has a very subtle, finely milled blue shimmer. You can see it in the bottle a little bit in this picture. However, when you apply it to your nails, it appears to be a cream finish instead.
This picture is two coats with the Julep Freedom top coat… and after a few days of wear. The base of my nails are a little “shrunk” because I wasn’t being very careful with the topcoat. Dry time was good, and I haven’t noticed a lot of chipping. This picture was taken on Tuesday, and I’m still wearing the polish today (Friday). There are some chips around the tip of the nail but no big pieces missing. From a distance, you can’t even tell.
Overall, I LOVE this nail polish! Seriously, it is one of my favorites for the summer (the other being Color Club Reign in Spain). I highly recommend it if you are looking for a warmer toned lilac polish.
