Julep Sharon is a polish that has been kicking around my untried pile (more like a mountain these days) since last Christmas, if I'm not mistaken. I bought this one as part of a set and primarily because it shares a name with my mom. Julep describes Sharon as a "dark, bold red shimmer" and as you'll see it's a fitting holiday polish. We're in the new year now, but a shimmery red is never really out of style! The formula on Sharon is pretty good-- I needed two coats for my swatches below and the polish went on smoothly and easily. I didn't put on top coat in my photos-- you can see how shiny and shimmery this polish is!

These types of red never go out of style, though the shimmery ones tend to be more prevalent around the holidays. Sharon does have a lovely glowing quality to it, but ultimately this polish is reproducible-- especially if you ever have checked out an OPI or China Glaze holiday collection. Still, I have a soft spot for this polish because it shares with my mom and is pretty much her color (she loves red).
