Another polish that I missed out on during the very tempting December 2013 Julep Maven Box was Julep Shoshanna, which Julep describes as a “full-coverage yellow holographic glitter”. I think full coverage is a bit optimistic, but it is a really pretty shade yellow-green shade.
On its own, I went with two coats of Julep Shoshanna, which is definitely not opaque but gives good coverage. I prefer this shade over a base colour, because it’s got a thick enough formula I don’t think I’d want to go for more than two coats. However as a result of the thick formula, it holds the glitter well and there’s no fishing or dabbing on needed.
I tried one coat of Julep Shoshanna over Julep Evelyn (shared here) and I really like the end result! I think with one coat you get great coverage and that makes this a very pretty glitter topper. It is a bit gritty and definitely benefits from a helping of top coat to smooth it out.
I grabbed Julep Shoshanna in a Julep sale for $2 and it was definitely worth the price. This is a pretty shade that would look great layered over any dark polish and in the summer sunshine the holo really sparkles.
