As I said in my unboxing post for Julep’s November Maven Box, I was thrilled to see that Julep was going to try their hand at Suede finish polishes. I love my OPI Suedes – they’re perfect in a pinch since they dry so quickly! I was so excited that I even ordered an add-on (Hailee) to my American Beauty box.
Julep describes this polish as a Graphite Silver Suede – works for me! It’s very much the same idea as OPI’s Suzi Skis in the Pyrenees SUEDE.
I’ve now used all three: Amber, Hailee, and Brit and I am happy to report that this was very much on par with the OPI Suedes! I only used two coats for a fun matte look and the formula was perfect: flowed nicely onto my nails – not hard to work with at all!
The biggest draw back to Suede polishes is the wear time – and this is universal, a day or two is the most you’ll get out of them, but since the application is so quick and easy, that doesn’t really bother me.
If you’re feeling the need to add this to your collection, you can grab it on Julep’s website for $14 or $11.20 if you’re a current Julep Maven.
