Julep's Gabrielle & Paris Manicure

Featuring Gabrielle & Paris

Photo taken in the sunlight

This is my latest manicure using two Julep polishes.  I used two coats of Gabrielle and one coat of Paris on top. Gabrielle is a smoky mulberry creme and Paris is multidimensional holographic glitter top coat. These polishes came in the May Julep Maven box.  I tried Paris on top of Zelda, Clara, Alice and Coco.  I originally thought it would best on Clara, but after doing some test nails I decided Gabrielle & Coco looked best.  The holographic glitter reflects mostly purple and gold so I thought it would look good against a dark purple.  If you look closely you will see there are some tiny pieces of glitter along with the octagon pieces.  The glitter went on heavier than I would have liked and I had to dab some near the cuticle line.  Gabrielle went on well during the first coat, but the second went on heavy and it seemed to need some thinner.  I don't like messing with thinner unless I have to especially if it's the first use of a polish, so I didn't add any.  Next time I use this polish I will definitely have to add some polish thinner to it.  I'd say this is more of a fall or winter manicure, but I was really anxious to try out the new polishes that came in my Maven box so I decided to wear them anyway.  Do you wear only Spring colors in the Spring or any color you want year round?
