This scattered holographic by Julep probably won’t stun those of you who are used to indie holos. I kind of think of them more as job interview holo. You notice it up close, but nobody else will.
You do, however, get a rich swath of color in one coat. We’re talking color-in-the-bottle one coat. I have since used other shades and they’re just as nice. My personal opinion as someone who likes holos so bright you can see them from space is meh. But it’s a good bet for someone who’s just getting into different finishes. I may try to use them for stamping.
Celeste is a full-coverage glitter that contains mainly greens, blues, and bronzy golds. There are a few flashes of other colors here and there, which increases its versatility. I can see using this with a beachy sandy color, either as a topper or an accent nail.
I thought I had this opaque in two, but the photo makes it clear I should have used three!
This is basically I Need a Refresh-mint with shimmer, which makes the whole effect a little bit dusky. I’m not sure about availability, as it came in a holiday set last year. But its formula is basically the same as Refresh-mint – opaque in 2 coats, not too streaky.
This emerald green polish is chock full of metallic gold microglitter. It has a beautiful formula like most from the brand and is opaque in 2 coats.
This beautiful deep green shimmer is opaque in 2 coats. It has an easy inky formula.
This teal cream is opaque in 1-2 coats. It’s lovely and buttery and is highly recommended.
I have exactly three Butter Londons, and have been disappointed by two of them. This was one of those. Pictured is three coats, and it’s still sheer. I may try it as a topper, because I love how twinkly it is.
This one has a formula that’s exactly the same as yesterday’s Diamond in the Rough, only in green. It’s lovely.
This deep teal cream is packed with tiny golden glitters. Opaque in 2 coats.
Zoey is a dusty teal with an incredible formula. Opaque in 1-2 coats.
