Julep Sally

Even though it's March, I finally have the polishes from my February Maven box to share with. This was actually the last month of the American Beauty box. Tonight I have Julep Sally for you, one of the two polishes in the box. Named after Sally Fields, Sally is described as a "antique ivory creme". I take a bit of issue with this description-- to me, ivory, even antique ivory, would be a slightly yellow off white and to my eyes, Sally seems much more orange-- like a very light pastel creamsicle orange. In the bottle it did look fairly yellow in color, but definitely not on the nail.

Sally actually had a pretty decent formula, given the color. It was a bit streaky, but not as terrible as it could have been. Here I have only used two coats, but they were on the thicker side.

I did have some bubbling with this. I think it was because I used thicker coats and maybe didn't let them dry long enough in between. In the future, I would probably use thinner coats to prevent any bubbling.


  1. I totally agree with your assessment. It is kind of a soft orange, pretty and unique :) And as far as I'm concerned, it's named after my cat, because Julep would totally know that.

    1. This is definitely unique to my collection. The more I look at it, the more I'm thinking of one of those creamsicle cups with the orange and the white. I'm getting hungry!
