Kylie - Sultry violet magnetic polish.
My boyfriend kindly allowing me to use his nails for testing (*´▽`*)

Nessa and Ashely are not colours I would typically get but once again I am pleasantly surprised by these out-of-my-comfort-zone-Julep-colours. I tend to stray far away from shimmery nail polishes but I have grown a liking for these two shimmery summer shades.

My only complaint is that the brushes from these two polishes lacked structural integrity. They are nothing like the brushes from all my other Julep polishes. I did some googling and it seems that many others also received defective brushes and that Julep will be sending out replacements (phew!).


  1. Totally loving Nessa! I've been on the hunt for a pearly-yellow~ This is perfect<3

  7. Hi Ally! Thanks for stopping by my little blog!!

    Yea, I totally can't believe that I found that dress at Goodwill. With the economy still shaky other people are looking for fashion bargains too so it is quite competitive to say the least.

    BTW. I love the color Ashley, unfortunately Julep is not a common brand in the US, or at least in So-Cal where I live.

    Have a great day!
