I’ve never used any of Julep’s “treatments” before, but this one seems pretty nice.
I applied it to my fingernails several days ago, and I really like the look. It’s very sheer and makes my natural nail look brighter. It’s perfect for when you don’t want the hassle of a colored polish on your nails but still want your nails to look nice!
The Metamorphic Top Coat was a special and exciting extra in my box this month!
Maryam – Classic with a Twist – Dark Merlot Shimmer
At first, I didn’t like the look of Maryam. In the bottle, the polish looks brown and a little weird, but after I applied it, I was much happier!!
I don’t know how to describe the color exactly (other than it being a dark Merlot shimmer), but I promise; it’s very pretty!!
In December, Julep sent out an email saying that if I signed up I could receive one of two or three different metamorphic polishes in my January Box. There was no risk in signing up, so I went ahead and did it!
The paper that came with the top coat said that it would transform my polish with a “chameleon effect.” I tried it on an accent nail over Maryam and didn’t see much of a difference. I will have to try it with a few other polishes before I determine what exactly it’s supposed to do.
I’m not a huge fan of lip glosses, so I probably won’t get much use out of this product.
The pink color is very sheer, and I didn’t notice any tinting when applied to my lips. This product comes in four colors, and I wonder if the magenta and fig are just as sheer?
What did you think of your January Maven box?! Did you receive a Metamorphic Top Coat?!
