Out of the three polishes I received in my “It Girl” Julep Maven box as part of their VIP Beauty Blogger box, I will say hands down; this nail polish is the one that surprised me the most. My initial reaction to the polish in the bottle was disappointment. Looking at it, it looks a little sheer – but as you can tell from the swatch it’s anything but! I’m so happy that it’s opaque and just all around GORGEOUSNESS!
This particular Julep nail polish is in the shade Daisy. According to Julep, Daisy is a “bright lemon yellow crème.” The description is spot on. I find with yellow polishes most of them are dull, soft, baby yellows. This is vibrant and bright – anything but a soft and gentle shade. It’s exactly what I’ve been looking for in a yellow and I am so happy to now have this in my collection. Yellow also happens to be my favorite color, so that’s another reason why I love it so.
It took only 2 coats for this to be completely opaque. You could get away with one if you want it to be a bit more “dulled” down, but the second coat definitely reduces the streaks, builds up the color and gives it that crème finish. The formula on this is pretty interesting. It’s relatively thick, so it can get goopy on you if you apply too much, but it for some reason spread out over my nail and stayed put. I’ve found with other polishes, the moment it starts to spread it’s all over the place – but this one didn’t do that surprisingly.
Overall, I really love this polish and am pleasantly surprised with the quality of it.
