Julep Camille belongs to the lovely family of polishes I swatched before on Writing Whimsy but would happily reshare now that I have (hopefully) improved both my polishing technique and photography. I swatched her originally back in April 2013 as a part of the Julep Spring Mystery Box and you can check out the retro post here if you’re interested.
Julep Camille was actually originally a mystery box exclusive, but like many Julep polishes it was eventually released for sale on their website and anyone can grab it now. It’s described as a ” full coverage opalescent white multi-dimensional glitter” but despite those claims, I definitely think this shade benefits from a base.
However, both on its own and over the gorgeous Sally Hansen Pep In Your Step (reviewed here) I went with one coat because that is really all you need for coverage all over your nail as the polish is loaded with glitter. As a result, the polish is a bit thick.
Julep Camille reminds me of fish scales because of the opalescence to it. I don’t really know how else to describe it. Removal is traditional glitter issues, but that’s to be expected and the end result is a gorgeous, shade-shifting, iridescent glitter (thanks for all the descriptions CBB). I’ll definitely have to share a swatch over black in the future too, because it is stunning!
