Project Red: Julep Demi
Julep Demi arrived at doorstep as part of my December's Julep Maven "Bombshell" Box. My Julep style profile is actually "Classic with a Twist", but I couldn't resist the richness of the Demi when I saw the preview. I switched that month and I'm very happy I did.
Elegant burgundy, like fine wine, is how Julep describes Demi. The color certainly is very elegant, and very reminiscent to that of matured red wine.
Demi actually looks a bit brighter on the nail than I had expected. Not a bad thing at all because it's a very nice color. I used 2 coats here and got great coverage. I could have deepen the color by an additional coat.
But I like it just as it is... It's not a bright cherry red, and definitely not too dark to be vamp.
I love Julep's crème formula. They are always so perfect and creamy. Demi did appear to be slightly thicker, but that was not a bad thing. Great coverage, which some may get away with only one coat. And as usual, Julep polish always dries to a glossy shine. Even for a someone who has one too many red nail polish, Demi was still a welcome addition.
