Today I've got a suede finish polish to show you, Amber by Julep. Suedes are somewhat similar to a matte finish, except that suedes have a shimmer in them, whereas mattes tend to be a flat color.
Amber is a nice neutral medium toned taupe gold. I've seen reports from others online that these are prone to chipping, so I was interested to see how Amber would wear. I'm pleased to report that I experienced no chipping in 5 days of wear, although I did have the normal amount of tip wear you'd expect to see.
I used Seche Vite's base coat and 2 coats of Amber, but no top coat. Julep's polishes regularly retail for $14, which I think is overpriced. Hence why I joined the Maven program, so that I could sample their polishes at a significant discount. So far, I like what I've tried!
About me: I'm 53 with oily but aging skin. Fortunately, the semi-tropical climate and humidity of where I live helps me from looking like the crypt keeper, in spite of all those years soaking up the sun :-) So let's talk skincare and makeup and anything else that strikes our fancy.
