Julep America!

Today I received something really cool in the mail so I just HAD to show you! Earlier in the week I placed an order for the new Julep colors, America and O Canada. America arrived today and O Canada is on its way! America was a little on the thick side but was pretty easy to apply. I layered it over Zoya Kimber, which I will show you soon. This polish is really exciting because it has large blue hex and silver star glitter! We have seen lots of patriotic indie polishes lately, but its nice to see a big-label brand offer one as well. This is one coat of America over two coats of Zoya Kimber, followed by Gelous and topcoat.


Artificial light, no flash.





A closer look at the star glitter!



What do you think?


Julep America will be a FREE BONUS in all July Maven boxes (for Mavens who reside in the US). O Canada will be the free bonus for Canadian Mavens. America retails for $14 and can be purchased from the Julep website. Mavens pay only $11.20 with the 20% off Maven discount. You can also add an additional polish to your box for only $4.99!

did you order yours seperate from your box to get it so quick? i wish once you opted in for the month they would just send it instead of making you wait a whole week longer! i want this and o canada NOW!!! but seriously - looks great! my anticipation grows and grows.

TraceFace said...

Yes, I ordered them seperately from my monthly Maven box. :-)

Ooo, that looks so nice! I can't wait for it in my box. And I ordered O Canada as an add on! So I can't wait for your pictures of that one. ^_^

So good looking.

Did it need the Gelous? Looks like it could be really bumpy. Melissa is getting me O Canada as an add on for her box. Can't wait to try these out. Although it doesn't look like that many stars came out.

Peace, Love and Polish said...

Oh my gosh, I love it! I have been sitting patiently waiting for my Julep box to arrive! I got this one and paid the extra $4.99 for O'Canada!

This is probably my favorite Julep polish, I love this.

Wow, this polish is so gorgeous!

What amazes me is that when you post glitters...they are perfect. Even the macro shots. Mine end up looking like some kind of train wreck with chunks sticking out all over.

Bárbara said...

Its gorgeous!!! I love it!! xD

Emma Thea said...

Looks lovely! I decided to join the Julep Maven program just because of how awesome their July polishes are :D

Becca Sym said...

This is beautiful! Why do I live in the UK where Julep doesn't ship to? :(

Ivy said...

This is an amazing colour! Julep should start shipping worldwide instead of just America! ):

Angel said...

If I order this now will I get a June or July box? I MUST HAVE AMERICA.

Love love love it! I'm so glad you showed this early...now I know I NEED my box! I know Julep shows the swatches on their site, but they are never really close up and barely show how the polish (glitters esp) REALLY look! Love it. Can't wait to see O'Canada!

Oh I'm so excited to get this polish after seeing your post.. I'm so happy you used it over Kimber since I own that one, too :) thanks for sharing!

Ooow so gorgeous! I wish they'd ship their polishes worldwide... :-(

Erinn Johns said...

Honestly I'm probably like the only one to say this. I'm not impressed. They made it look so awesome but now I'm just like that's it? Booo :( I was so looking for it, the only reason I didn't skip over this month was because I wanted it. Well I still can't wait to get my box I'm getting a lovely sea green color in it!
