Julep Dawn

Julep Dawn The Daily VarnishAfter the fail that was Color Club Prickly Pear I was looking for a yellow(ish) polish to lift my nail polish spirits. I spotted Julep Dawn in my untrieds pile. Katie sent this to me last summer and it was the perfect, cheery looking polish.

Julep describes Dawn as a citron creme. This is a yellow creme that does have the slightest hint of green. I actually quite like the color and, for a yellow, it doesn’t look too bad with my skintone. As a matter of fact, I liked Dawn so much I used it as the base for some spring inspired nail art.

The formula is pretty fantastic. I probably could have gotten away with 2 coats but I used 3 for good measure.

Julep polishes are available at Sephora, but the monthly subscription service is a more affordable way to get Julep polishes. To get your first month free use the code FREEBOX!

Make sure to check out the swatches under the jump. I’ll also include some of my favorite Julep polishes in the related posts section 🙂

  1. I was kind of ‘meh’ about this polish until I checked out the nail art. I find yellows are always a tough call. Very pretty! Makes me think of warm weather. 🙂
