Julep Lisa

Had a very busy weekend and I'm definitely grateful I got three days off. Thank you, veterans! Of course, I meant to post yesterday but got side tracked and so never around to it. We're back to the polishes from my last Julep Maven box. Tonight I have Julep Lisa, which Julep describes as a "warm pebble grey creme." Now this is a description I can get behind-- I totally understand what they're saying here. Lisa is a grey polish with a fairly strong brown tone to it. This definitely reminds me of some rock you would pick up from a stream. I guess it's kind of a dirty grey?

Like most of Julep's creme polishes, Lisa is nicely pigmented and has a good formula-- thin and easy to control. The first coat was a little on the sheer side, but it builds up nicely. I only needed two coats here to get perfect coverage. Seriously, you can't go wrong with Julep creme polishes. It was easy to apply and dried quickly and without any issues.

I love this polish so much! I've worn it several times already, on its own and under some glitter. This is a little surprising because I generally don't seem to gravitate towards grey polishes very often, but there's something irresistible about this polish.


  1. I actually really like this--I can't resist wanting to see a tiny, tiny bit of shimmer. But I like it as a creme too :) nice!

    1. This would be stunning with a hint of gold shimmer in it! But even without it, I still love it.
