Today I'm wearing one of the polishes I got in my latest Julep Maven box. This month Julep put out several matte and matte shimmer polishes, which I love, so I had to take the box. Mae is a dusty lavender "satin finish" polish, which is Julep-speak for a plain matte creme.

I love how serene Mae is. It would make a great workday polish!
The formula was typical for a Julep creme: somewhat runny, and hard to get thin coats because the brush is so long and it's impossible to wipe all the excess off. Consequently the polish dried slowly, which isn't great for a matte because you can't add topcoat. One option is to use drying drops, like Julep's or Zoya's, which don't add gloss to your mani. I also note that Mae was pretty much a one-coater for me (although I did two), which is impressive for such a light color!
Mae is available at Julep.com ($14 for 8 ml, $11.20 for Mavens). Click here to become a Maven for free!
