Julep Ada

Happy Friday (almost Saturday now, ack)! Just a quick post tonight, I'm tired. Traveling alone with the kids last week pretty much wore me out for the entire week-- being with my mom was nice but it's not the same as having your partner. I am ready for a weekend at home! Today I have a polish from my February Maven box-- Ada. Ada is a new finish from Julep, described as "fizzy." I'll be honest and say that I'm not really sure what that means, but I'll try my best to interpret this. Ada is a raspberry jelly with small white hex glitters in it. I'm guessing the fizzy descriptor comes from the fact that the glitters are kind of like bubbles in a pop (er, soda if you call it that).

Ada had a good formula and great coverage-- I think I only used two coats here! The glitters are small so easy to get and despite the jelly formula, is not sheer, just nice and juicy! This did dry down to a slightly matte, textured finish so it does need a top coat to make it all shiny and gorgeous.

Artificial light (flash):

Ada is a fun, cheerful glitter! It's bright but not overly so-- perfect for deary winter days. I was pleasantly surprised with how easy this was to apply and definitely wouldn't be opposed to see more glitters like this from Julep in the future.

Hope everyone has a nice weekend!
