Neeka and Alfre

Hi there!

As I was putting my newer polishes away, I couldn't resist the temptation to compare these...

My nails painted with Zoya - Neeka and Julep - Alfre.
Zoya is painted on my pointer and ring finger.
Julep is painted on my middle and pinky finger.

Alfre is pretty cool. I only needed to paint 1 coat for it to be fully opaque. This was my first time trying a Julep polish, and I'm pleased with the formula and the brush. The application was absolutely effortless. I like the finish of this one- it's high gloss, and almost metallic. I'm thinking that I'll have to try my luck stamping with it one of these days. Up close, it's easy to spot the differences between Neeka and Alfre... but just an arm's length away, they look like twins.

Until next time...


  1. Very similar! But both are very pretty! I've been wanting to try a Julep polish. :)

  2. I'm actually surprised that I'm saying this... but I think you'd like them. It's an awesome formula, dries quickly, and it's just a 1-coater. I just wish they weren't 8 times more $ than my other polishes!

  3. Thanks for the comparison. I am not on the Julep wagon yet, and I do agree, they seem over-priced. These two colors do look very similar though.

  4. So close!! They are both very pretty!

  5. Great comparison!

  6. I can't wait for Alfre.... I'm going to order her when Julep releases her for sure! (with my credits of course... NOT paying that much for polish!!!)
