My polish life is kind of weird these past few days. The new spring colors from Zoya — Awaken Collection, Monet topper, Magical PixieDusts — have not shipped yet, I haven’t bought any new spring releases from Essie or China Glaze or OPI, and frankly, I’m glued to the Olympics on TV.
What to do, what to do. I decided to dig into my relatively-new-but-not-yet swatched stash, and I came up with a beautiful spring color from Julep called Rebecca. I’m not a “Maven,” aka monthly subscriber to Julep; Rebecca is a polish that I bought cheep cheep at an after-Christmas sale. As I’ve posted before, Julep’s full-sized bottles are what I call mini, 0.27 oz/8 ml, and I don’t care for the tall, narrow bottle shape. But they have some nice polishes.
Rebecca is a lavender-blue or light periwinkle blue creme. The formula was very thick but it self-leveled well and dried quickly. Two coats, no top coat:
Rebecca is still available on Julep’s site and is still on sale for $3.99. Personally I won’t pay more than that for such a tiny bottle, but I do love the shade. It’s not just blue and it’s not just lavender. Very spring-like. I don’t have another creme exactly this color, although I do have similar colors in different finishes (shimmer, matte textured).
