Julep Nail Vernis Natasha Bottle

The September Julep Maven It-Girl box originally contained Stella, a mustard yellow. Not being in the mood for yellow at the time, I took advantage of the program’s “Shelf Pull” option and requested to be sent a different color, which turned out to be Natasha ($14), an intense orange.

I love that Julep pulls inspirations from the runway. My initial reaction was that a bright orange should be reserved for summer, but the above photo boasts that it looks striking in the colder months when balanced with neutral hues and autumn browns.

Natasha is definitely not for the faint of heart. A loud, red-orange, it screams for attention and would never go unnoticed. It’s easy to mistake this for a red, especially in darker lighting, but it appears more orange under bright light.

What I thought would be a creme formula turned out to be a semi-opaque jelly. With a slight “gummy” and plastic-y texture, it evens out to a candy-like finish in 2 coats. I found the drying time to be slightly shorter compared to previous Julep polishes I’ve tried.

Have I mentioned that I adore the cute bottle design? Each Julep bottle dons a peek-a-boo window on just one side of the bottle. I’m unsure whether it has a specific purpose, but it certainly is unique!

  1. That color is so pretty on you! It reminds me of Essie’s Braziallant. It’s almost a cross between orange & red, definitely a fiery color. I think I actually prefer it for Autumn. You’ve given me the idea to work some brighter colors for the season. :)

    • Thanks, Alexa. :D Fiery! I love that; you’re right, that’s exactly it! It’s a nice way of incorporating orange in the Fall without being mistaken as Halloween nails.

  2. This looks FAB on you! It definitely looks slightly jelly-like in the bottle. I love secret jellies.

What say you?
