Face-off: Essie Leggy Legend vs. Julep Luz

Quick comparison post! I mentioned earlier that I thought Essie Leggy Legend and Julep Luz might be fraternal twins. On a closer look, though, I think they're probably more like cousins - not too alike, but maybe with some general similar features. Here they are in outdoor natural light, two coats each (Leggy Legend on the index and ring,... Continue Reading →

Julep Elsa & Julep Judy

It's finally December, my favorite month and totally the best time to wear wintry whites and tinsel-esque metallics! I love winter polishes, I really do - and this month's Julep Maven featured add-on, Elsa, was a love-at-first-sight polish for me.

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 →

Sephora by OPI S-age is Just a Number

S-age is Just a Number is from Sephora's Spice Market collection from fall 2012, and it's since been discontinued (when the Sephora by OPI polishes were completely replaced by Sephora's current Formula X line last year), but it's still one of my favorite gold polishes. I hear it's pretty close to Chanel Peridot, but I don't own... Continue Reading →
