Swatch It Up: Julep-Olivia

I have been craving chocolate-covered coffee beans all day, so I will have to contend with having equally delicious-looking nails! Julep-Olivia is described as a “rich and graceful, dark chocolate truffle crème” and could have been opaque in one coat, but I always feel better doing two. The formula of this polish was ever slightly more watery than other Julep polishes I have used so my cuticles needed a bit more clean-up than usual as the polish would bleed into them. Other than that, this is a beautiful espresso brown and is a fantastic “cold-weather” polish. I just wish fingerprints didn’t show up quite so easily!

    Is there anywhere else to get Julep other than sephora?

  2. I once tried out a brown that I absolutely hated. Now I 'm a bit afraid to even dabble in that sort of thing. But it does look lovely on you! :)

    1. I know, this is probably the second dark brown I own. They aren't normally my favourite to wear, but I can imagine Olivia with gold on top which would be really pretty!

    1. It's very chocolatey which is what made it very appetizing to look at! I'm normally not a brown polish lover either!

    1. The wateriness was surprising I must say! I really didn't expect it with a Julep polish, but then again, every colour is different.
