After last night's bummer of a polish I have a good one for you tonight! Tonight I have Julep Anne for you! This was another polish from my January Maven Box. It is (I believe) a color from Julep's core collection-- at the very least it's been on their website for awhile. Anne is an "ultra-saturated violet" that has the same semi-matte finish as Helena.
I loved Anne! It is the perfect color for spring! Bright and cheerful and my favorite-- purple! Anne is super bright-- almost neon! Like other Julep cremes, the formula on this is perfect. It's well pigmented and goes on smoothly. It probably could have been a one coater, but I used two in the pictures below.

After the fiasco that Maria was, Anne was a delight to use and wear. I love this polish! It's so bright and cheerful and lovely. I could stare at this color forever.
