Julep Melissa and Charlotte Nail Polish Pictures (Part of March Maven "It Girl" Box)

Here is a manicure I did using 2 polishes that came in the Julep March "It Girl" Maven Box (there is a 3rd, Jodie, that I do not have).

First, I did 1 layer of "Charlotte", a cool-toned grape creme:

Then I did one layer of "Melissa", an opalescent shimmer on top:

Color: "Charlotte" is described by Julep as "demur lavender", but as I mentioned above, she is more grapey to me.  I love this purple!  "Melissa" has a blueish-greenish flash that looks like the iridescent inside of a seashell.

Application/Formula:  Charlotte is perfect in one coat, something that is difficult to find in a creme polish. Melissa was very easy to work with as well.

  1. I love the "mermaid-y" look of the layering combo; something about these two together reminds me of sunsets over the water...love that bluish flash! Another killer combo, my friend!

  2. Charlotte is a gorgeous purple! Hmmm... I think I need a purple, but I don't want to sign up for Julep. What's similar?
