Julep Kylie

2 coats of Kylie with 1 coat of Essie's Good to Go topcoat

Showing off the magnet that comes with the nail varnish.

Oh and I'll include this section for those of you like me with no prior experience with magnetic polishes ahaha;;;
How-to: applying a magnetic polish like Kylie!
0. To prep your nails, apply a base coat (optional)
1. Apply one (1) coat of Kylie and let dry
2. Apply second coat of Kylie to ONE NAIL ONLY!
3. Immediately after, hold the magnet as close as possible to your nail without touching the nail
4. Keep holding for 10-15 seconds....
4.5. Admire your pretty nail for a while :)
5. Repeat steps 2-4 for your other nails
6. Allow your nails to dry fully
7. Apply a top coat (optional) and you're finished!

Color - ♥ ♥ ♥  ♡ - Kylie is a nice, slightly muted and almost berryish color. I like it and it goes well with my skintone!
Formula - ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥  - The formula is thick and looks good even with one coat! But, for the magnetic effect, you do need that 2nd coat.
Smoothness - ♥ ♥ ♥   - You can probably tell from the photos but it's SO SMOOTH! I loves it. 
Price - ♥ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ - At $14 full price, I wouldn't buy it. But again, definitely worth one penny, or the $4.99 I paid to get it as an add-on to my May box!

Overall - ♥ ♥ ♥  ♡ - I really like this polish! I just wish I didn't get a janky brush with this one and that the magnetic stripes would come out straighter than wavy like how it is...

I was really amused, because I got this as an add-on to my May Julep Maven box, but it arrived a day before my actual box did! It even shipped out later...

The brush that came with this polish was really weird... It was all flared out and just looked bad. :( I heard that almost everyone's May box had at least one polish with a messed up brush. Bummer! But, I also heard that we can contact customer service and be sent some replacement brushes, so I am glad for that. The formula for Kylie was good enough that I could still apply the polish without the brush affecting the end result too much though. :)

[[[Update!!!!]]] --------------
I emailed Julep customer service about the brush issue and got an email reply (same day!!) saying they would be sending me replacement brushes soon, and will be giving me a tracking number when that happens. Seems like it happened to almost everyone for the May boxes. Julep really has the best customer service!

More about the May box later when I do a proper post for it! I'm waiting to film another video before I try everything fully~

Remember, you can still take advantage of the penny deal for your intro box to Julep Maven if you haven't already! 
Just use the codes:
Let me know if you decide to try out Julep Maven! :]
