Swatch Spam Time-Julep, OPI, and Zoya

Hi there everyone, I hope your weekend is going well so far.  My post is a little late today but I'm not going to apologize because I slept in until 10 this morning :)  I never used to sleep in late on the weekends since I normally get up at 6 for work but my husband has been waking me up late on Saturdays which has led to this haha!

Today I have some recent swatch spam for you.  I usually wear solid creams or a simple accent nail during the week so these are some colors that I've worn recently.

First up is Julep Jules.  This polish is from my May Julep box which came with this pink and two purples.  This polish is a pale pink cream.  I needed three thin coats but the formula was fine to work with.  Below is three coats with topcoat.

Second up is Julep Paulette, which is an lilac purple with a pale gold flash.  The formula was smooth and buttery on this one and I needed two easy coats, plus topcoat.

Next up is OPI You're Such a Budapest.  I'm not sure if I've posted swatches of this one before but here's an updated swatch if I have.  This polish is a pale periwinkle purple that is a little on the sheer side.  This one does require three coats but I think the color is worth it.  I used three coats with topcoat below.

Next up is Julep Sunny which was from my Julep box from April.  This polish is a yellow metallic and I've never seen anything like it.  I'm a big fan of yellow and a big fan of metallic finishes.  This one stained like crazy though, through my basecoat.  I used two coats plus topcoat.

Oh Zoya Wednesday, the perfect dusty green polish.  This polish was one of my picks from the Zoya Earth Day Sale and it's the first one I picked to wear.  This one is a dusty cool green cream and I needed two coats with topcoat below.  Great formula on this one.

Last up is OPI Chocolate Moose which is a polish I found on vacation in St. Maarten.  This polish is a warm medium brown and it had a great formula, close to a one-coater.  I did end up using two coats with topcoat below.  I didn't think it was the most flattering on me but I think it will be useful for nail art.

Do you own any of these polishes?  Which one is your favorite?  Zoya Wednesday is my favorite of the bunch.


  1. Great swatch spam! There's some pretty shades here.
