This "one-time, exclusive" collection of polishes was put out to celebrate Julep's 2nd anniversary. They said that they chose the names they did to "share our joy at having reached this milestone, our appreciation for everyone who helped us get here, and the connection we feel with our Mavens." The names of the polish are Amity (friendship) which is a soft metallic silver, Clio (celebration) which is a mult-colour glitter topcoat, and Reiko (gratitude) which is a rose gold foil.
Julep Amity is described as a "white gold metallic" and it has a nice metallic pearl finish. There's some silver microglitter in it that adds that extra bit of sparkle. When I first started applying this colour I was worried it was going to be sheer like a lot of Julep's light polishes. I was pleasantly surprised! This is three coats of Amity without topcoat, and you can't even make out any of my nail underneath. Perfect! You can see a bit of the brush strokes, but that's standard for a metallic polish.
Julep Reiko is described as a "rose gold metallic" and it was the colour that first drew me to this set. I don't own anything like it! It's a lovely foil polish that goes fully opaque with two coats (which is how many coats are pictured here, with no topcoat). I don't have much else to say except that I love this colour! Love love love! In real life it's the barest hint more pink than it looks pictured here.

So what's your favourite Clio combo? Is there a different shade you'd like to see it swatched on top of, outside of the ones I've shown here? Let me know!
Thanks for visiting!! xx
