Swatch-It Sunday: Julep Grace


Julep Grace is one of those really sheer light pink polishes that at first glance seems like it wouldn't provide any actual coverage. But once you actually put it on you realize that it's a lovely clean and subtle polish that does leave some colour! :) What you see here is three coats, and it went on beautifully. As you can see it leaves a bit of VNL even with this many coats but I think that's to be expected considering it's a really sheer crelly polish. I think this would be gorgeous in a french mani.


I originally got Grace in a mystery box earlier this year and while it's only from 2013 I just checked and it's actually no longer available on Julep.com. Waaawonnnn. So if this is one you want to get your hands on you're going to have to turn to trade groups or ebay. Officially it's described as a "classic 'go-to' light pink sheer," and it's from Julep's Classic With a Twist colour profile.

Because this polish is so sheer it's easy to see how much you've used in the bottle, and it makes me sad to see that I've already started to make a dent in it! Do you find that you start using certain shades less often once you notice the level going down, or does that push you to use more and finish the bottle? I'm definitely more of the former!

Let me know what you think, and thanks for visiting!! xx

  1. This is the kind of colour that looks soft and pretty on everyone but awfully streaky on me =(
    I'm like you, once I start seeing less of the polish I stop using it because I don't want to finish it haha

    1. Oh no. :( Maybe you need to use thicker coats so there's less of a chance of streaks?

      I have such a weird aversion to using up products, which is dumb because aside from nail polish a lot of things eventually go bad/need to be thrown out anyway. I guess I'm kind of a mild beauty hoarder? Haha.

    2. I'm a rather heavy coater usually...lol I do think it's my nails being ridgey and uneven, I've sort of accepted that these will never work on me.
      Aren't we all beauty hoarders? Haha I've been trying really hard to finish beauty products before buying new ones (with the only exception being lipsticks, can't turn down a nice red lipstick...=P)

  2. Grace is so lovely! Hmm, it's only with Julep that I've actually had a chance to come close to finishing a bottle of nail polish, but I think I'm more of the former too.

    1. Same! I have two Julep shades that are starting to show wear (both soft nudes) and it makes me so sad. I wish the bottle were larger!

  3. This is a nice sheer polish! It would be perfect for a jelly sandwich or even as a french manicure!

    1. Thanks Lisa! 100% agree, I hadn't thought of using it in a jelly sandwich! That would be gorgeous with a hint of glitter..
