I’ve got swatches for two Julep August 2016 colors today, Julep Pam and Julep Alysha! These photos show two coats, topped with Essie Good to Go top coat, in outdoor natural light.
Pam is a somewhat frosty, somewhat metallic orange-soda orange with holographic shimmer. The frosty finish shows brushstrokes a bit, but it’s better with topcoat. The holo effect isn’t especially strong in this one, but it gives the polish a cute carbonated appearance. 🙂
Alysha is a deep berry-purple shimmer with occasional maroon undertones and linear holographic shimmer. I didn’t really photograph it well, but the rainbows are pretty vibrant.
Both Pam and Alysha have good formulas that are nearly opaque in one coat and even out well in two coats. They both dried on the fast side of average for me. No problems to report on either polish.
