NOTD: Julep's Rachel Mattified

Matte nail polish is growing on me.  When I first was introduced to it, I was "meh".  Maybe there's a difference between seeing pictures and looking down at my own mattified nails, because now I'm starting to dig the look!

I received Rachel a few months back in one of Julep's mystery boxes. Described as a rich, warm copper, I'd say it leans a bit darker but definitely has a lovely coppery shimmer.  Formula wise, Rachel wanted to bald in spots on the first coat, although she evened out well enough at 2 coats.  A little problematic, but nothing insurmountable.

I used Julep's Matte top coat, which worked like a dream.  Another nice thing about mattes is how quickly they dry!  Rachel mattified looks a bit like chestnuts, don't you think?  Julep polishes retail for $14 and Rachel is still showing as available
