Zoya Jules: The New Neutral
After my disappointing experience with Zoya's Ki, I was a bit apprehensive about trying another shimmery shade that looked all kinds of multidimensional goodness in the bottle. Thankfully Jules is every bit as gorgeous on my nails as it is in the bottle.
It's hard to describe Jules because it looks gold, silver, green with a tinge of taupe. I have never seen a polish quite like this one. The shimmers are incredibly fine and the formula is thin. I need about three thin coats of this polish to achieve an opaque manicure. The application was a breeze and there was minimal tip wear in the first few hours but no chipping or smudging.
The shimmer and shine of Jules is subtle and refined. This is a great polish for a conservative office without being the usual pale nude. Instead of a bold red or sparkly polish, this is a great alternative for holiday and new years nails.
Do you love this shade as much as I do? Have you seen any similar polishes to Jules?
