Julep Leslie

Today, I've got another polish from my October It Girl Maven Box to show you guys. Leslie has a black base with tons of silver shimmers peeking out.






The silver shimmers in here remind me of stars twinkling in the night sky. They look chunkier than usual shimmers, and they stand out well against the black base without getting lost in it. The formula is great. It goes on pigmented and smooth, without any pooling or dragging. And I needed only two coats for opacity. The shimmers do have a tendency to clump together and make the texture slightly lumpy, so a top coat is useful if you like a smooth and shiny finish.

  1. I like the shimmer a lot, but this would be too much black for me. I'd slap on some more shimmer or glitter :D It looks really great on you though!

  4. It's even vampier and sexier than the previous one, and that standing-out shimmer is gorgeous :D You should wear such dark colors more often!

  7. This one is really beautiful but... I've seen it elsewhere. Julep didn't yet convince me to stay a maven...

    1. I like this one. Julep does have some unoriginal colors, but I thought this is one of their more original ones, at least in my stash. :-)

  8. Yun,

    Loved your post and Leslie on you! How many Julep colors do you think you own? And how are you liking our new Maven program?

    1. Hi Alexandria! I've been with the Maven program since February and have also picked up a few Julep polishes otherwise, so I think I have around 20 Julep polishes and I'm still adding more. I'm a big fan of the Maven program. It's fun and flexible! :-)
