Julep Swatches - Eloise, Sophie, Lisa and Keira

All the ladies are in the house today with a bunch of Julep swatches.
I've got all 3 of the Julep Maven's Choice Swatches, as well as last months Sophie from the Trina Turk Collection Box.

Let's start off with a comparison of Sophie and Lisa, both seemed sorta similar in the bottle...

As you can see, these ladies are both very different. Lisa is a very green based gray, in some light it looks more like a grayed sage green but it is overall, gray. Sophie is a taupe brown with a lot of reddish/purple base. Both are keepers in my book.

Now here are swatches of Keira and Sophie in a diagonal mani.

The formula on Sophie (the taupe shade) was good but weird. It was thick yet it ran easily and pooled on me pretty bad until I got the hang of it's formula. Shown here are two coats.

Keira had a much better formula - shown here at 1 thick coat over Sophie. Gorgeous berry burgundy creme.

Finished with 1 coat of Butter London Quick Dry Top Coat.

Here are Lisa and Eloise in a diagonal manicure.

The formula on Lisa (the greenish gray shade) was good. This is shown at 2 coats.

Eloise also had a similar formula to Keira, this is one thick coat over Lisa - a stunning slightly dusty blue creme.

Also finished with 1 coat of Butter London Quick Dry Top Coat.

A quick look at both manicures.
