The polish I have for you tonight is Julep Caroline, another polish I added to my October Maven's Choice box. This was another new polish that was introduced in October. Julep describes Caroline as the "darkest burgundy shimmer" and I can't argue with that. Well, mostly. This polish is very dark but has a gorgeous shimmer. My only minor quibble is calling this burgundy, mainly because to my eye it has such strong brown tones. Don't get me wrong, this polish definitely has a red hue to it-- but I feel like my camera picks up the brown tones!
As much as I love Julep creme polishes, their shimmers run a close second in my book. I don't know why they don't make more shimmer polishes-- because Caroline was great. Formula was perfection and it applied smoothly and without any issues. Julep should make more polishes like this. I used two coats here and no top coat.

You can definitely see the red-burgundy in the bottle in my last picture. This is gorgeous and perfect for fall. This really reminds me of OPI Germanicure, except perhaps a little darker and browner. I need to do a side by side comparison!
