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!
