Julep Petra

Hello, everyone!  I've got a quick swatch for you today of a very pretty Julep shade.  Take a peek:

This is Julep's Petra, described as a "cranberry magenta with a silver shimmer" on their website.  I swatched this not expecting to like it very much.  Pinks and reds just aren't my thing and this polish seems to sit somewhere between the two.  However, once I got it on, I saw the subtle purple and fuchsia tones as well as the silver.  I was surprised at how much I ended up liking it.  I'm wearing 3 coats here and I felt that was pretty good coverage.  The formula was nice and the color payoff is great!

Here's another look:

You can see a bit of the silver shimmer in this one.  Isn't it nice when things turn out better than you expect?  And speaking of nice things, here's a reminder that my giveaway is still open so get your entries in for a chance to win 3 Julep polishes!

Thanks so much for reading!
