Julep Nail Color in Lucky

Sunday, March 17, 2013

As you may have noticed by now, I tend to celebrate various holidays by painting my nails in a festive colour suited for the occasion, especially if I don't have actual social plans. In honour of St. Patrick's Day, Julep released a shade aptly called Lucky, which I probably would've gotten just because I'm a sucker for bright green polishes, but the fact it also contains an insane amount of glitter made it a must-have for me. So when I was picking out my Julep Maven Box for this month, I decided to redeem my points for it.

Lucky is a medium brightened lime and kelly green micro-glitter base with larger oxidized gold glitter particles. It has a thicker consistency that is common with chunkier glitter polishes, but it doesn't hinder the application. It goes on evenly for the most part, but because of the consistency, it does have a tendency to pull. I didn't experience any streaking or bubbling, though. It has high pigmentation and goes opaque in one coat (what you see above is actually one coat!). I can't think of an exact dupe; it is much brighter and has more green than Julep's Colbie, much less teal than Models Own's Emerald City, and lighter with more chunky glitter than Zoya's Rina. It really looks like gold coins thrown into a lush field of clovers — by far the most Irish-inspired nail polish I own!

Happy St. Patrick's Day to you all!

  1. That is most definitely a Paddy's Day polish, Denise! I do not like green polishes on me AT ALL (except teal green or pale green) so I had a time trying to find something to celebrate the occasion lol. This would have done the trick! (for the day :P)

    1. Green polishes tend to make my hands look red, but I don't even care, LOL. When I saw this, I was like, "OMG, IT'S A LEPRECHAUN IN A BOTTLE."

      I think your skintone would look great in a deeper green, like A-England's Dragon. :)

      And yeah, it's kinda sad that I probably won't be busting this polish back out until, like... Christmas... or next St. Paddy's Day, LOL.

  2. Chunky glitter that's a one coater? NO FREAKING WAY.

    This looks like the love child of a leprechaun and his pot of gold... ;D

    1. I KNOW, LIZ. I put on the first coat, and I was like, "OMG WHAT!" I was considering putting a second coat just because I'm used to it, but I was like, "Ah, unnecessary." And then just put my Seche Vite on and called it a night, lol.

      And it really does look like a leprechaun fucked some gold, doesn't it? LOVE IT.
