Julep Mackenzie

I'm super excited to show you guys Julep Mackenzie, one of the bright polishes from my April It Girl Maven Box. Mackenzie is a bright apple green with lots of green shimmers in a metallic finish. I was most looking forward to this color, and it's the reason I chose this box. :-)






When I saw Mackenzie in the lineup for this month, I knew I had to get it, and I'm happy to report that it definitely lives up to my expectations. It's such a bright and happy green, really fantastic for summer! :-)

Formula-wise, it was good, but a little tricky to apply. It's nice and thin, but has a tendency to be runny. I found the trick for a good application is a thin first coat to define the borders, followed up with a medium second coat done with a soft touch to fill in for coverage. Be sure to wipe off excess polish between strokes, as it tends to run down the length of the stem and brush and deposit onto the nails. 

You can find Mackenzie as part of the April Julep Maven Box, as well as on Julep.com for $14 for 0.27 fl oz. If you are new to the Julep Maven program, you can get your first box free. More info HERE.

    1. Can you believe I have no dupes in my stash? In fact, nothing comes even close. I think it speaks to the fact that I don't have enough greens lol. Thank you so much, hun! That means a lot coming from a fellow blogger. <3

  8. This is a gorgeous polish! I might also be a tad biased towards it since my niece's name is McKenzie.
