Julep Winter isn’t my favorite Julep polish ever for several reasons, but the main one being the color straight up clashes with my skintone. The solution was obvious; top it with something that will change the color of the polish.
Deborah Lippmann Today Was a Fairytale has a gray, jelly base. It’s not a dark base but there’s enough color to neutralize the yellow in Winter. The result was perfect and reminded me of a blustery, winter day.
If you were around for my original review of Today Was a Fairytale then you know I wasn’t completely won over by the polish. But as it has been part of my collection I have found it to be one of the most versatile glitters I have. Go figure, right!
There are swatches under the jump (and a picture I took of this manicure outside over on TDV Instagram). Just a warning/heads up: any pink you see in these swatches is a reflection from my pink (yes, pink) camera.
