Julep Ciara, which I may have mistakenly spent weeks calling Clara, came as part of my October Maven box.
See? It says Ciara, but it's easy to see how I saw Clara, right?
Julep describes this polish as a "vampy magenta with teal mircoglitter".
I applied two coats of Ciara and topped it with one coat of Seche Vite.
I reached for this polish when I was looking for a dupe of Illamasqua Gothiqua.
Gothiqua is a limited edition polish that is only available in Canada. A friend offered me the chance to purchase it but I went for Facet instead.
Gothiqua is more red than Ciara and has far less sparkle. It has more of a green/blue hidden shimmer in a creme base.
I'm happy with Ciara as my replacement for Gothiqua. Based on pictures I've seen, I like the Juelp much better than the Illamasqua.
Do you have this polish? Do you have Gothiqua? Which do you think is better?
