The Surreal World duo ($20) is the other Julep holiday set that I ordered as an add-on to my December 2018 Julep box, comprising of:
- Azalea (Bombshell) – Pink Sunrise Holographic Microglitter
A pale pink base loaded with fine holographic particles, nearly opaque in two coats, as in my photo, on the ring finger. Also makes a great topper (pictured over Bri on the middle finger).
- Bri (It Girl) – Purple Ember Holographic Shimmer
A plum/burgundy shimmer with fine holographic particles.

I don’t recall having any issues with application or dry time, and the two polishes really do wear well together. Durability wasn’t as good as with the Avant Garden colors, but they still lasted me about five days with my usual base and top coats.
I enjoyed this set and am glad I was able to pick it up for significantly less than $20 with my monthly box.
