So I finally unboxed my November American Beauty Julep Maven box + I’ve developed somewhat of a polish crush on these nail polishes. I was out of the Julep loop for a while, not even realizing these existed until my November maven box arrived. At first I wasn’t too crazy about the colors, see 1 glitter you’ve seen them all type of feeling. But I did a quick swatch anyway + silently revoked my disappointments from earlier.
The colors – I received Brit (a metallic silver) + Amber (a metallic gold). They both look like ordinary glitter polishes in the bottle but dry with a matte suede finish that tones down the colors and gives my nails shimmering glow.
The smooth finish – The finish gives it a super textured look that is smooth to the touch.
Dry time – I did my nails last night while working on an assignment + they were dry + ready to type in less than 15 minutes.
So overall this matte suede finish polish has my vote + I would love to see it in other shades.
I also received a pink grapefruit body butter in my box that I’ll be reviewing later this week. I did take a quick sniff + it smells yummy like candy!
