Julep Daphne

Julep Nail Polish
I just received Julep Daphne in my July Julep Maven box.  The first polish that came to mind as a dupe was Essie Turquoise & Caicos.  Daphne is a lot darker and more of a muted teal/turquoise than Essie T&C.  It actually looks a lot darker on the nail than it does in the bottle.  This applied beautifully.  It was actually a tad thick, but I welcome that when I compare it to Turquoise & Caicos, which is very sheer. 
I have been very pleased with Julep nail polish so far.  I thought I would use my 1 cent box and then cancel, but I don't think I'll be cancelling anytime soon.  I have been very happy with every box.  If you are interested in Julep Maven, feel free to use the referral link on my page - or just go straight to their website.  Also, you can get your first box for 1 penny using code COLOR2012.  No shipping, etc....just 1 penny:)

Teal Nail Polish

 Here is a comparison of some of the dupes I have in my collection.  As I said above, at first I thought Turquoise & Caicos would be a dupe, but Daphne is quite a bit darker.  The closest would probably be Sinful Colors Mint Apple, but that has a bit of shimmer.  In conclusion...Daphne is very unique and a very pretty teal - I highly recommend it!

  3. This looks really pretty on you! I just got this yesterday myself. Thanks for the comparison, I have Essie's Turquoise & Caicos and your right, it is darker. Good to know that it's thicker too!

    1. I'm thinking of maybe trying my first jelly sandwich with Turquoise & Caicos since it's jelly/sheer.

  5. My bottle of Daphne is also much darker and much more green leaning. I'm actually wearing Daphne right now and it looks like a completely different polish when I compare my fingers to your swatch!

    1. Interesting. Perhaps it's the lighting? I need to pull it out again and check. I apologize if this photo is misleading...
