I apologize for not posting Manicure Monday last week. I usually try to schedule my posts but I didn't have the time. I had an extremely busy week or I should say month. Now for this week, I am fortunate to work with Jesse's Girl.
I took this picture from my Instagram. I already reviewed JulieG in Sunset Kiss (top right).
JulieG in Sunset Kiss (middle). For this post, I will review the polish on the left.
JulieG in Dolled Up Dorothy. Since I did a thorough review of JulieG in Sunset Kiss, I will base this on that.

Here's a closer look at the ingredients.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, the brush is on the thin side. It's not my type of brush but I actually didn't have a problem with the brush. I just grabbed more polish than usual. I usually brush one side of the brush in the inside of the container before painting my nails. I just didn't with this polish and it covered the whole nail. With that said, I didn't have any difficulties painting around the cuticles and sides. For some reason, it was easier to paint this time around than JulieG in Sunset Kiss. Secondly, the consistency is on the medium. It's not too thick and it's not too thin. It's a perfect consistency that I can take my time painting without worrying it drying. I hate the feeling of knowing it dries quickly while painting. It makes me rush and that's where I make a lot of mistakes. With that said, it went on smoothly and there were no streaking and bubbles. Third, the color is gorgeous! It's definitely unique. I have not seen this color from any brand. For that reason, I recommend this color. If you're not into metallic polishes, this isn't for you. It's also a great fall/winter season polish. With that said, I'm impressed with the pigmentation. I applied two coats but you can apply one thick coat. It'll be good enough. Lastly, I noticed shrinkage on the fourth day but it was barely noticeable. Other than shrinkage, I haven't noticed any chipping. Let me tell you I've been wearing it for a week and a half, and there's still no chipping. The shrinkage got bigger but not by that much. I'm so impressed with the polish. Imagine this is a drugstore brand and the quality is better than a lot of higher end polishes!
Would repurchase: Yes.
