Rated 2 out of 5 by from Should have listened to reviews Love the color but the formula was terrible. I thought it would be fine if I just put on a top coat. Nope! It's thick and blotchy. It chipped right away. Not impressed. I only paid $5 for it but that was still way too much. I'm going to be more careful about buying things on sale!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Love the color! Hate the formula... This color is beautiful and the soft focus finish is cute, but the formulation of the polish is horrible! It's thick, goopy, streaky, and hard to work with. I think adding nail polish thinner may be a good idea. That being said, this color is a perfect light nude against my olive-toned Filipina skin! I love how it's a nice neutral beige, and you can see how much pinker Fifi is next to it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Tricky to work with This came in my first box, and (thankfully), it wasn't the first Julep polish I used. I tried to apply it twice. The polish is very thick, but applied streaky. I did two coats and it looked like I had painted white-out on my nails. I tried again with thinner coats. The first coat was nice, but still streaky. A second coat gave the white-out effect, mainly because it goes on so thickly. I think this polish will work in dim lighting, and three THIN coat would be ok. However, in an office setting, it just didn't look great on me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from horrible The soft focus finish got me interested, but it was so thick and it did not spread well. Couldn't really shake it because it was so thick. It is very whiteout pale. I've receive many different colour nail polishes from Julep every month, and they all just not worth the price at all. They are either very thick and hard to apply or they chipped within a day or two. I make sure I switch them out in my monthly maven box and now trying to get rid of all these nail polishes.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from thick, gooey, bad polish Color looks nice online, but it does not paint on as it should and it does not dry. I should have read the reviews before purchasing. I'd give no stars if an option.
