Julep: August's 'It Girl' Maven Box: Nellie & Fiore

It's the weeeeekend! Wahoo! I had a few minutes yesterday to swatch two of the three polishes that came in my Julep Maven Box.. the third one I am not such a big fan of, so I'm going to keep that sucker wrapped and post it on my sale/swap pinterest board :-)

First up is Nellie - a lovely fuchsia pink creme. This baby just about applies itself! Seriously, if you are like the WORST at applying polish, you NEED this color - it goes on smoothly no matter what you to do it! It is definitely a one-coater, but I used two plus HK Girl Topcoat for these swatches. (And yes, it really DOES look this much different in the sun and in the shade!)

Next up is Fiore (what a pretty name!) - a dark espresso brown creme. This one doesn't apply as smoothly as Nellie, so you'll definitely need two coats. On the bright side, this one dries super-quickly! Shown below is two coats without topcoat.

  2. I really like Fiore, it's such a nice colour, but more for fall or winter.
