Manicure Monday: Julep Nail Polish in Alice

My friend gifted me some Julep nail polishes.
When I received these nail polishes, I was extremely excited! They're my type of colors and I thought it would be great for the fall weather. Since I did a thorough review of Julep nail polish in Renee, I will base this on that.
For this post, I will talk about Julep nail polish in Alice.
Here's a closer look at the nail polish. It's very true to color and on the website, they describe the color as "antique lilac shimmer." I definitely agree with the description except I'm not too sure about antique. I also most of the pictures from the website is true to color.
Here's a closer look at the brush. The width of the brush is comparable to OPI brushes.
I applied 2 coats of Julep nail polish in Alice and topped it off with Seche Vite Top Coat except the ring finger. For the ring finger, I applied 2 coats of Julep nail polish in Alice. On top of that, I applied Morgan Taylor nail polish in Fame Game. Then topped it off with Seche Vite Top Coat. I'm so sadden the day I took the picture, there was no sun. Morgan Taylor polish is extremely gorgeous and this picture doesn't do justice. Morgan Taylor polish gave the nail polish a holographic look. From the picture, it looks like glitters but it's not. It's holographic specks. I highly recommend this polish!!!

Now for my overall opinion... Most likely I received a defect. The brush seem secured but when I painted my nails, it moved like crazy and made it hard to paint my nails. I tried to secure it back into the top but it just wouldn't move. It was secure. It was just odd and most likely, you will not receive this type of defect. Other than the brush, it was easy to apply. It went on smoothly, and there was no streaking and bubbles. Even the consistency was decent. It's on the medium where's it's not too liquidity and not too thick to apply. I also found the nail color unique. It's a silver-ish lilac color with very light shimmer. I don't think there's another color like this or I just haven't seen one. Lastly, I was impressed with the lasting power. It lasted 5 days before it started chipping.

Would repurchase: Yes.

The nail polish looks dull in the bottle but looks very sweet and pretty on the nails! :D Nice colour~

Thank you! Because of the dullness, I thought it would be a perfect fall color but I think it fits summer better.

There's a metallic sheen on the nails as well. It's just not that noticeable. It was a bad day to take a picture outside. There was hardly any sun. Oh mi gosh, I highly recommend Morgan Taylor nail polish in Fame Game. It's so gorgeous and you will not regret it!
