In case you didn’t know, Julep is a company that makes nail polish. They started this new collection called, “The Birthstone Collection” last month. I did purchase January’s birthstone and now I am doing my review on February’s birthstone.
You can check out January’s birthstone review here.
I was pretty excited to receive February’s color because purple is my favorite color. I had high hopes for this polish while purchasing it. I expected it to be gorgeous!
This polish comes in the normal Julep packaging with 8 ml of product.
The top of this polish is a gold color just like January’s polish.
This polish is named after Rosa Parks! This is something that I find cool! Each polish is named after a public figure that had their birthday in that month. Last month’s was Betty for Betty White. I really think that it is cool that they picked Rosa for Rosa Sparks because she was such an inspirational woman.
What Julep says about this polish, “Amethyst birthstone. Full-coverage multidimensional holographic glitter. The fabulous February jewel in our gold-capped Birthstone Collection. Rosa – Amethyst for February is a glistening tribute to an inspirational woman whose light continues to shine, Rosa Parks. Born February 4.” More information here.
Here is a photo from Julep’s website.
As you can tell this polish color is gorgeous! I may be biased because of my love of purple.
You may be wondering why such negative adjectives! This was honestly the worst polish I’ve tried. Yes, it is a glitter polish and those are harder to control. But, this was horrendous! It was so streaky. I would take the polish and as soon as I would go over with the brush, it would just wipe away the polish making it very streaky. I ended up giving up and was close to throwing the polish in the garbage. No I didn’t…but, I feel like that is where this polish belongs. Don’t get me wrong, I do love other Julep polishes. Maybe they forgot to add an ingredient in this one. I even checked the ratings on their website and there were a lot of 1 star reviews. Betty (January’s polish) was a little hard to control, but nothing like this! I was looking forward to completing this collection as the months went on, but now I’m not sure if I want to continue.
I just feel like Rosa Parks, who was such an inspirational woman to society, deserved a more high quality polish!
Comment and let me know if you have tried this polish before because this one was a huge huge huge miss for me! I think I should return this very disappointing purchase!
