Rated 2 out of 5 by from while polishing thought it was the worst ever... Was looking forward to this (love neutrals, thought I liked the prior soft finish pale purple) but was wondering if this was even tested or if my bottle was somehow destroyed! Thick but streaky really hard to work with, persevered through two coats (shaking the bottle every two nails or so) and it ended up drying ok. Didn't take it off but will probably never use again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I wish room paint came in this color. I got this color for my best friend's nautical themed wedding. Her colors were blush and navy. I painted the wedding party's nails this pearl pink. I was so glad to find it again. I wish room paint came in this color and finish! I am a neutral color, creme finish girl, yet this is lovely- not too shimmery, not too flat, and very neutral without being boring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous, sophisticated, manageable I love this polish more than any other polish I've ever used. The color is awesome, makes me feel like a lady who lunches. The formula is thick but manageable, requires a couple of coats. For those that disliked it- don't trash it, send it to me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful color This is my first review since I joined Maven a year ago. I have liked other colors...but this one is ...wow. A very soft, almost pink tone, bright but not too bright against your skin, and the soft focus really makes it classy. A winner!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed This is the first Julep product that I've ever been unhappy with. It was thick and goopy when I first opened the bottle, took 3 coats to get coverage that wasn't streaky, and then didn't dry even to the touch after quick-dry drops and 30 mins waiting. I really liked how this color looked online but it's going in the trash.
