My New Favorite Polish: Julep Tracy Swatches

Arden: Hey!  I'm so excited to share these photos with you today because this is my favorite new polish!   

I got Julep's Tracy as an add-on to one of my monthly boxes and I absolutely love it.  It is Julep's first "Sea Salt Finish" polish, which basically means it's a sparkly texture polish.

First, two coats of Tracy with no top coat:

It's just so sparkly and texture-y and awesome!

I don't know about you, but after I wear a texture polish for a couple of days I begin to get a little tired of it (mostly because I just can't stop stroking my fingernails when they've got a special texture on them).  So after wearing Tracy for a couple days, I switched up my look by adding two coats of Essie Good to Go on top.

And oh my gosh, you guys.  This polish is GORGEOUS when it's got a glossy top coat. It's got so many different sparkly glitter colors and dimensions!  Soooo pretty.

Need any more convincing?  Go log on to and order yours! 

What's your favorite nail polish color right now?  Hit us up in the comments!


  1. I find the textured ones can be a little hard on my nails. Did you do a base coat? I have this sparkly / texture polish from the Nicole by OPI line that is beautiful, but it always leaves my nails very damaged.

    1. Yes! I always use a base coat (I should prob start mentioning that in my blog entries). I like both Essie All in One Base Coat and L'Oreal One Stop Base Coat. I've never had a problem w/ texture coats leaving my nails in worse shape than other polishes (sometimes they're harder to remove, but that's the only issue I've had with them). Maybe that's because of the base coat? Or maybe it depends on each individual polish? I'll let you know if I ever have the same problem.

  2. Perfect nails.
