Warm taupe with gold microshimmer nail polish

Kay - Classic with a Twist is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous One of my all-time favorite Julep polishes. It’s a silky taupe with just enough gold to give it some jazz. Subtle and elegant, it works for any season, especially if you’re dressing up a bit, but it’s just as lovely with jeans and a sweater.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Applies and wears well I primed my nails with a nail treatment from another brand, then swatched this color on alternating fingers. I did not use a top coat. It applied very smoothly, chipped about when I expected, and looked very pretty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Milky Smooth This polish is a nice color on the first coat. It has a milky smooth finish, reminds me of sparkly coffee. I absolutely love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this neutral, less metallic than I expected I love this shimmery neutral, I will definitely make great use of this polish, though it is less metallic than I was imagining when I purchased it. Funny thing is when I hold my finger to the swatches shown above, it matches perfectly. I just thought it would be shinier, a true metallic. (Granted I don't think they ever use the word metallic in the description.) LOVE nevertheless. Goes on smooth and easy, great consistency. I recommend if you're looking for a jazzed up neutral.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My New Favorite Neutral This is my new favorite neutral! I love some shimmer and shine in my nail color, but I also like looking polished and professional and this color is the perfect marriage of the two. It has a good neutral base (though it's a bit dark on me, since I'm rather pale), and a lovely gold shift that really makes it pop. This color goes with just about everything and is a dream to apply. Definitely one of my top colors this winter!
