Forget Me Not Friday: JULEP - Aretha

Pin It
Julep Aretha

HAPPY FRIDAY! Today I have Julep Aretha to share with you. Geeze, I haven't reviewed a Julep since last year... This is from the Julep 2014 Birthstone Collection. This is March's birthstone polish. Since my birthday is on Monday, I figured it was about time I pulled this one out :P Check out the swatches down below.

Aretha is a "multi-dimensional glitter top coat" inspired by the March birthstone, aquamarine. This polish is filled with iridescent (swoon) hex and square glitter filled with rainbow flashes. While this polish looks like it has a sheer blue base, that actually shows up as clear.

Not that big of a deal, but I'd expect it to be blue if it's representing aquamarine. You know?! At least it's good news to anyone who want/ed this polish, it's just an iridescent glitter topper haha... pretty darn easy to find.

I did 1 coat of Aretha over China Glaze Kinetic Candy. The formula was a little on the thick side, but was easy to spread over the nail with multiple brush strokes. I'll probably add a drop of thinner next time. Great dry time, no issue.

Like I said, if you like this polish... you can probably find an available alternative without issue. I don't love it but I don't hate that I own it LOL. Just kind of sad that I spent $12 on it. Meh. You win some, you lose some.

I bought this myself. Is that good enough for you, Federal Trade Commission?
