Zoya 'Jules'

Zoya 'Jules', a shimmery golden taupe color with pewter undertones. It is extremely shimmery, so it is quite a fun neutral shade. This is the kind of color that a cool,, pimping grandma would wear (Or that I could imagine a cool, pimping grandma could wear). This is totally office appropriate, but also shimmery enough that it won't look boring and 'blah' for going out.

Price and Availability: I purchased mine at Nugget for $8.

Formula: The formula was okay: not too bad but not that great either. It was pigmented enough to give decent coverage in 2 coats, but as you might see from the pictures, it is a little bumpy. I am not sure if the bumpiness is due the nail polish or to my application. But either ways, it looks a little bumpy. In person, the bumpiness in not very noticeable, so overall it is not that bad. I like the color enough that the bumps do not bother me.

I give this a 4/5.
The color is unique, and very fun for a neutral.
It is really shimmery, but not glittery. (Which I personally like)
Pigmentation was decent, but the formula could be a little better.

Thanks for reading ;D
