Hey pretty ladies! You must be thinking “Julep? She hasn’t done a review on them in about 3 months!” Well, you’d be right, but sometimes I just need a polish break…sometimes. I pretty much scope out the collection and decide based on that whether I’m going to take the box that month. When I saw they had some new Matte Metallic shades I didn’t really hesitate in confirming my box. I ended up choosing the It Girl box because it already came with 2 of the new metallics.
Also, this month Julep gave a free polish to Mavens just because they love us so much!
The Switch-Up Collection
Sonia is a blue steel matte metallic. I found that thinner coats works best with these matte polishes, and I used 2 thin coats. This is a great color with a good formula!
Rashida is a rosy copper matte metallic. This color is so gorgeous, but the formula kept bubbling up on me. The pic above was my third and final attempt and luckily, it was the best one. Maybe I just got a bad batch?
Sheer Shimmer Oxygen Nail Treatment– This color is a sheer treatment with a slight pink tint and subtly red and gold shimmer. It’s actually quite feminine and pretty, something good to cleanse your polish palette. I don’t have a photo because I ran out of polish remover!
Cheyenne is described as an auburn matte metallic. The color is more like a deep brick red with golden shimmer flecks. It is SO gorgeous and my favorite of the 3…I’m so happy I added it on. Oh, and the formula was the best also, I used 2 thin coats.
Melody (free gift)
Melody is described as a iridescent high gloss glitter top coat. It is very pretty, and for this photo I used 2 coats of Melody over Sonia, then added a matte top coat to finish it off. I love the way it came out and it really sparkles!
Overall, I was really happy with the color selection and new finishes for this month! Usually I am not a fan of metallic polishes because I don’t like the streaky looking finish. However, because these are matte the streakiness is much less noticeable.
