Julep Alexandria


Since I've had some time off, thought I would check in with another gorgeous polish from Julep.

This is Alexandria.

Alexandria is one of those polishes blessed with multiple personalities.  In the bottle, she appears to be a deep rose with a bit of purple flash.  And yes, she does dry matte but I prefer shiny polish so...top coat required for me. 

The above pics were taken with only the light from the sunlight lamp I have on my desk.  With flash, Alexandria takes on a quite a different personality.

Here she comes across a bit more on the pink side with silvery sparkles.  The sun, though, is where the full beauty of this polish shines - pun intended.

She turns a tomato red and there are multicolored sparkles all over the place.   Adding a blurred pic just to drive that particular point home.

Now, Alexandria did thicken up as I used her but I think that might just be typical for Julep polishes.   However, a quick shake during the process seems to help.  The trouble is definitely worth it.

That's all I have for this post.  Thanks for reading and stay tuned.

  1. To me the polish looks stunning from the pictures you have shared. I will surely try this out soon as it is looking very good in the color, shade and the shine as well.
