My first box arrived a few weeks ago. It included the colors Coco, Queen Anne, and Sienna. Coco is a very pretty deep, deep red creme, Queen Anne is a standard small glitter, and Sienna is a classic gold shimmer. My box also came with a facial skin serum that I am interested in trying, but my skin has been very sensitive lately, so I am going to wait to try that. Last week, I wore Coco, which you will see below. I am not very excited about Queen Anne because I have an old Sinful Colors polish that is very similar. I do not have a dupe for Sienna, however, so I'm looking forward to trying it out.
When I woke up, I was dismayed to find that my right thumb had already sustained a pretty large chip. My others nails seemed intact, so I decided I would just reapply the polish on that thumb later in the evening. Throughout the day, I noticed that other chips were appearing - on my left thumb, and my left middle finger. This is highly unusual for any polish I use, especially when used in conjunction with Seche Vite's mighty top coat.
After how quickly Coco chipped, I wonder if I am simply applying the polish much too thickly, or if this polish just doesn't like me. I don't want to write off Julep just yet, so when I try out Logan, I will be super careful and apply it in very thin coats. I am curious about Dana's black light sensitive capabilities too. I don't often hang out in place with blacklights, but Halloween season is here, so I might happen upon a black light soon enough!
Do you use Julep? What are your thoughts on the polish chipping so fast on me?
