Julep Lacey

This is probably the one color I was most excited about while I was waiting for my Julep August Maven box to arrive. I could not wait to put this baby on when I opened the box!! This is Lacey from the Julep August Bombshell Maven box and it is GORGEOUS!!!

Lacey is described as a midnight blue with purple shimmer but all I can say is wow!! I will be honest that I just didn't know how I was going to like wearing a blue and I wasn't sure how dark or blue it would be on my skin tone but I fell in love as soon as I put it on.

The pictures shown are with 2 coats but in all honesty, I could have gotten by with just one coat. I was all set on just trying it with one coat because it applied so opaque and even in just one coat that I didn't think I needed a second coat but while I was waiting for it to dry, I smudged it. So I just tapped out the smudge lightly with my ring finger and then just applied a second coat and it was gone.

This applied very nicely and smoothly with no streaks or clumps, it wasn't goopy or thick at all. I think that for me it dried in an average amount of time but I always add a quick dry top coat when it's about half dry.

This color is so gorgeous that when I started I had every intentions on adding some nail art with the other color that came in my box but once I got this lovely on, I couldn't add the nail art because it is just too beautiful on it's own. I have even gotten quite a few compliments on this color as well. I hope you loved this color as much as I do.
