Julep Mischa

Hello everyone! :-)

Today, I have for you Julep's Mischa, another polish from my July Boho Glam Maven Box. Mischa is a juicy scarlet red with hints of orange and lots of sparkly shimmers.







Julep really hit it out of the park with this month's polishes for the Boho Glam profile. I thought Mischa would be another typical red (lots of those around), but it turns out to be a most interesting color. Depending on the lighting, Mischa shifts from a bright red to a more fiery orange. It also has the most fascinating silver and gold shimmers in the bottle, which then translate clearly onto the nails.

The formula is excellent, and I am able to apply even coats without any problems. Although each coat is a little sheer, they build up to a good level of opacity with two coats. I love this type of micro-glitter/glass fleck finish because it is the best of all worlds. You get shimmers and sparkles without the brush strokes of a metallic finish or the removal problems of glitters.

Don't forget to enter my current giveaway for a chance to win a Zoya mini trio, featuring three colors from the Zoya Surf Collection! <3

  9. You are so good at applying polish! I keep wondering if it's me or the polish because I can't for the life of me make something that looks decent. And then it seems to be coming off in a day. Maybe I put it on too thick?
    Anyway, this looks great, I'll be trying mine out soon hopefully!

    1. Thanks, Candice, it's very sweet of you to say! I'm glad you like my swatches. I'm sure you'll like Mischa too!

      Thin coats are definitely better than thicker coats. And a good base coat is important. Oh, feel free to email me if you want to chat more about polish/how to apply/keeping it on. ;-)
