I apologize how sporadic my posts are. I'm still struggling with this awful cold. It's been way past two weeks and I'm still not completely healed. I'm just glad I got my appetite back. I would like to believe that's a start of recovery. Anyways, most of my Julep polishes I received from a friend.
I already reviewed Renee (far left), Georgia (middle), and Sally (far right). For this post, I will review the fourth from the left.
Julep in Renee, I will base this on that.
OPI Nail Envy in Original, Seche Clear Crystal Clear Base Coat, 2 coats of Julep in Susie, and then topped it off with CND Vinylux Weekly Top Coat.
Now for my overall opinion... First of all, the brush is on the thin side. I found it difficult to paint around the cuticles but that's just me. Most people are good even with thin brushes. I'm just not experienced. Secondly, I was expecting the consistency to be on the thick side. From my experience, most solid pastel colors tend to be thick. It actually was in-between thin to medium. I was pretty impressed! It made it easy to paint the nails and not worry about going quickly before it became a little bit tacky. I find it hard to paint the nails when it starts getting tacky. Again, it could just be me. With that said, it went on smoothly and there was no streaking and bubbles. Third, the color is gorgeous and perfect for spring/summer season. I'm used to mint to light blue colors but this is more on the white side with slight light blue color. It's definitely unique but you can find similar colors in other brands. I just don't own any in this color. Lastly, it didn't chip much on the tips. I noticed slight shrinking on the tips on the fifth day. On the sixth day, there was some chip at the ends of the tips. The thing I found weird is around the cuticles since I didn't do a good job, I noticed chipping on the third day. The parts that got coated once around the cuticles chipped quicker than parts that got two coats. You definitely need to make sure it's painted twice or else there will be chipping.
Would repurchase: Maybe.
