Julep Color Fan is rated out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by kyalala from Very nice! I really liked this product and I have another on order with my June Maven box! For everyone who has trouble painting swatches...I had the same problem with the not-quite-dry swatches bumping each other and smudging, until I figured out that you can pop the flexible pink connector off the post and remove the swatches that you want to polish. Then when they are totally dry you can sleeve them back onto the post and snap the connector back on. You can also do this if you want to re-order the swatches on the fan once you've painted them. One thing I also like to do with my fan is to paint one coat over the whole "nail" surface and then a second coat on only the top half so I can check coverage/opacity for each polish easily. This is super helpful with nail art. The one thing I wish was different was that if you use nail polish remover to take the color off any of the swatches, it turns the swatch from clear to a cloudy white. I will have to check and see if my nail polish remover has acetone in it, but I was unpleasantly surprised by the discoloration when I tried to re-do three of the swatches.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JenniferJ from Pretty good It takes the nail polishes a while to dry on the "spoon", so do these when you have nothing else to do. I have 3 of these (all came in separate mystery boxes) and each ring actually has 23 spoons haha. I was surprised no one else commented this, but I am one of those weirdos that likes to count random things lol. So, overall, works just fine, takes forever to dry, and you get a bonus spoon!

Rated 2 out of 5 by AlyssaC13 from I wanted to love it! I bought these for all my Julep colors, and my first impression was that they were really tiny. I should have read the description better because it notes how you shouldn't remove the sticks from the ring as it may screw up the fan shape. Fine, but painting them is really difficult as the spoons move into each other -- continually smudging or putting a line into the last freshly painted spoon. Really frustrating. :( I would recommend getting other swatch sticks that will let you paint a little easier, as this is a slow and tedious process.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chocokide from Great way to decide which color to use. I love that I can now easily see which color to use for my mani/pedi's. The fan is easy to paint and I painted all 20+ nails in less than an hour. I then left the fan to dry. While I do need to buy a new fan, I'm okay with that because it is super easy to reorganize/align the colors. Simply open one side (only one side opens) and pull off any that are out of order. Seriously I just did this and it took less than one minute to take off all of the swatches and put them back on the handle. I would say to only get this on sale though as the regular price seems a bit high.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Katiebug1329 from Perfect Display! I love how the fan shows the true colors of the polishes so I can easily pick out exactly what I'm in the mood for. The only thing that's difficult is that each swatch doesn't easily move by itself. So be careful when painting! Otherwise, absolutely brilliant!
