NOTD: JULEP Nail Color in Steph

Two coats of JULEP Nail Color in Steph. Coconut Cream Iridescent Shimmer.

So...I was ridiculously excited to try this shade on for size, and while the color is chic and classy, the formula was such. a. letdown.

The blue and pink iridescent shimmer throughout Steph keep the color from toeing that harsh white line, making it feel softer, and more ballet-inspired; but the thick yet runny formula makes this a polish I will never use again. Sure, the shade is stunning; but when you're chasing a polish out of your cuticles on each stroke, it's simply not worth it. Tossing this one.

What nail color are you rocking for #ManicureMonday?

Aw..you did it with such great results though. I do have a hard time with this sort of color. Also trying to find the right formula in the color blue, as well. Sometimes, I have to go back with tried and true formulas to get me through the week..like the very neutral Yo Soy from Wet n Wild.

Loved your honest review. I'd still like to know your secrets in doing your at home manicure. What do you use on your cuticles before you do the manicure.

I shouldn't admit it but I'm still working red nails from last week, haha have to do something about them today though! Xx

I have been loving soft pinks like this! In fact, I just pulled out a color similar to this for my nails this week. That's such a bummer about the formula, though. It really just isn't worth it when the polish is running all over the place!

I'm sorry to hear that this pretty thing was such a disappointment but luckily there's an entire universe of similar but quality shades that are just waiting for you to discover them! I just took off my dark red mani from a few days ago and actually have no idea what I'm gonna go for tonight - orange or maybe even yellow! xx
