Up until recently, I had never heard of the YouTube-r JulieG. In fact it wasn’t until Jesse’s Girl came out with a JulieG Collection that I heard of her. I know she does a lot of nail art so maybe that’s why she wasn’t on my radar, since you know me, I have zero patience for nail art. 😉
The JulieG Collection consists of eight colors. Six of them are cremes and two are shimmers. The cremes are all in pretty basic colors such as peach, orange, pink, purple, blue and red-orange. None of those looked all that interesting or unique to me so I chose the two that stood out from the rest – Stiletto and Mermaid’s Lagoon.
Stiletto is a medium taupe with mostly silver shimmer. I do see a little bit or pink and blue in there as well but it’s super subtle. The polish formula was good, but definitely on the thin sheer side. I needed three good coats to get complete coverage with this one. It’s a pretty, soft color, but perhaps not totally unique. It looks almost like a dead-on dupe for Cheeky Monkey Hangover.
Mermaid’s Lagoon is a bright teal blue with pinkish/goldish shimmer. First off, the base color is super flattering and gorgeous. I adore this blue! Then the shimmer just adds another layer of fabulousness. I love this combo and don’t think I have seen it before. The only thing I was disappointed about was that the shimmer wound up being pretty subtle. I would love for it to be a lot more prominent, but I still like it. The formula was excellent, it was really creamy and had perfect coverage in just two coats.
I liked both of these colors, but definitely think Mermaid’s Lagoon is the one to get if you are getting any of them.
