Good Morning Everyone,
My posts have been a bit sporadic lately with the wedding and, as some of you know from Twitter, a family emergency. Speaking of the family emergency real quick- I want to say thanks to all of you for thinking positive thoughts, saying a prayer, and also checking up on me to see how things are progressing. Thank you all for that, sincerely. I really appreciate it.
Today I want to share a swatch of one of my Julep polishes with you. Julep is an interesting company. I didn’t know very much about them before I got my PR pack. They’re quite the girl power company and I like it!! They also strive to use only the best materials for their beauty products and really seek to put out a good message about beauty. If you want to read more about their company please visit their website here.
These are the three nails polishes I was so kindly sent to use and review in conjunction with the giveaway (have you entered yet??!! If not, click here and dooooo ittttt!!!) These three colors from top to bottom are Morgan, Claire and Blake. Today I will be reviewing Blake.
Julep’s Blake is a soft daffodil yellow polish. It’s soft, yet bright and I find it to be a very flattering shade. :)
The application is just fine, totally non-problematic. Also I found that Blake’s pigment was very opaque for such a light color and where as other colors similar to this one tend to take 4-5 coats to reach complete opacity, this polish was good in 3 careful coats.
Yes, Please! or No, Thank You:
If you don’t have a soft yellow, I’d definitely use this link (click here!!) and order yourself an intro maven box that includes this polish! Use the code MAVENINTRO and you can get it for just ONE PENNY! I like this color as a base for nail art and just as some nice, clean, light nails that aren’t quite as stark as white.

Have you tried Julep’s Blake? How do you like it? I have to say I am pretty impressed. I actually love the cute little bottles and although not exactly ground-breaking the colors are super nice! AND they have special boxes around the holidays that DO have some awesome and unique polishes. Let me know what you think and till next time- Happy Polishing!! :D
