Julep Alfre

Happy Labor Day!  Hope you guys have some good plans going on for today...here I am, still trying to figure out how to end the summer with a bang...go fig!

Anyways, here is the last of my Julep polish swatches from my sneak peak box.  This one is Alfre, and is part of Julep's Fall 2011 collection which has yet to be released.  To be honest, I really wasn't a huge fan of this color in the bottle, and it looked really familiar to me because of the fact that it's a distinguished color.  Sure enough, when I got home and looked through my polishes, I found one that is M.I.G.H.T.Y. close to Alfre. Hint: It's a China Glaze color.  I'll do a post later of my comparison.








To be honest, this actually isn't a bad color.  It's not my favorite, I'm not a fan of frosty colors, but the shade definitely is nice for the Fall. As with Julep Cameron, application was very opaque after 1 coat, but I did 2 just to even out some of the streakiness.

My camera can't really pick up the color of Alfre, but it's a frosted purple/grey, more purple than grey-toned.  No topcoat for the pictures and it's still very much shiny on it's own.  Once again, another great polish from Julep.  Not my favorite color, but hey, who has ever liked every shade of every color before?

What are your thoughts of Alfre?

Have a Happy Labor Day, guys!

XoXo,

I'm going to post it this week! I keep taking pictures in different lighting to get the colors to show. It looks more gray in my pics :/
