Sera - Bombshell is rated out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by n_jade from Hooked! This is actually my first nail polish ever (and manicure in general) and I'm so glad it looks great and lasts well! I've worn it for an ongoing 7 days now, and it still looks fresh! I used a thin coat of the oxygen smoothing base coat, 2 coats of Sera, and then a quick-drying top coat from outside of Julep. No chipping or anything, even though my long nails are put through a lot of repetitive tapping and whatnot (keyboard typing, and I use sandpaper and other rough things pretty often in my line of work). I'm very impressed with its staying power! Sera is a metallic smoky gray-purple, with multicolored speckles (is this micro-glitter?) which are a bit indiscernible from a distance. The base is essentially a cool color, but I see specks of a warmer purple, blue, and gold as well. When the light hits it at certain angles, the polish can look warmer--it's very pretty! Overall a fun color that is quite unique.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kira25 from tastefully sparkly I'd call this a 'chrome microglitter'. It's made up of little bits of metallic lavender pigment. In normal indoor light, it's a sort of chrome/metallic lavender. Not glittery, it's pretty and elegant and entirely appropriate for even the most conservative office. Get it out in direct sunlight, though, and it glitters like crazy. Fun summer sparkles. :) It's one of those polishes that you can't stop looking at, indoors or out. Love it! It holds up well, I'm on day 5 with it, no signs of chipping and only slight wear. I used the new Oxygen base coat and Freedom top coat. One quibble that kept me from giving it 5 stars - it's very thin. I needed three coats, and even then it doesn't have the coverage I'd like. I really wish Julep would get the polish consistency issues sorted out. Some of the polishes are fine, two coats and you're good, and some are just too thin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ruby from Oh my gosh this color has everything. It's subtle yet sparkly. It is very flattering. It goes with everything and is actually work-appropriate. It goes on easily and smoothly, covers well in 2 coats, and wears like iron. And it's really, really pretty. Absolutely my new favorite.

Rated 5 out of 5 by A_Sober from Best Color Yet This is by far my favorite of the over 60 polishes I have received from Julep. The color after two coats is stunning. It's the perfect combination of a soft purple with a hint of shimmering silver. I received it in my monthly box and fell in love with it before I even put it on. I am not one to write reviews but I had to write one about the quality of this color. I actually logged on to purchase more of this specific color because I will likely use so much and I do not want to run out. You will not be disappointed with this color!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Michi from AMAZING So... I tried this on because it was the second color in my introductory bombshell box - and it's AMAZING. It stayed on without chipping for a full seven days - and only started to chip after I layered on other colors from other brands (because I got bored with one color). And it started chipping on day 10. It's also a very pretty color - perfect for Spring or the Holiday season. I'm definitely going to stock up on this color - it's just so good!!
