Julep Danica

Julep Danica, from maybe a couple weeks ago. Three coats, topped with Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Top Coat and taken in outdoor natural sunlight. https://www.instagram.com/p/BVNU87vBqxa/?taken-by=eternaldecember Danica's a lovely sheer-ish blue-violet metallic (what Julep calls a chrome finish) with a pink-to-turquoise shift.

As promised, here it is - a comparison of Zoya Marion (index and ring), from June 2015's Zoya Mystery Trio Box, and Julep Phia (middle and pinky), from last June's It Girl Maven monthly box. This is two coats of each, topped with Essie Good to Go top coat, in direct natural light: Marion and Phia are very similar neutral... Continue Reading →
