Smoky indigo crème Nail Polish

Octavia - Classic with a Twist is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pretty color, poor application This color is so pretty, and just what I was looking for. Unfortunately, it went on super thick (even with thinner coats), and took forever to dry. It survived the night under the covers, but the next day at work, I started noticing marks in the nail polish from things touching my hands. Also, it went on really messy....normally I am pretty good about getting the polish on my nails only, but this was all over my fingers, and super hard to get off. I will try again with really thin coats, but I think this one is a fail for me =(.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite go to color!!!!!! Goes on beautifully, dries quickly and looks fabulous. I touch on Zelda for a Lapis Lazuli look. Best Julep polish made. My only complaint, Julep's signature squared bottles break more easily than any other bottle made. I've dropped tons of polish on hard floors and have lost more polish due to the squared bottle design. I've probably broken about 6 bottles in my lifetime and 4 were Julep and that's not counting the cuticle oil I broke after having used it only two times. And yes my Octavia is one that paid that price.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I wanted to love it First of all, the color is absolutely gorgeous; the pictures do not do this shade justice. It is such a glossy, rich purple with a touch of blue, and I am not at all disappointed with the color. The polish, on the other hand, was underwhelming. This was the first Julep polish I purchased and I don't know if I will be buying anymore. Octavia takes forever to dry and I had wear on the end of my nails in one day. This might be because I used it on acrylics but either way, I am not happy with the wear of this polish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I have been using this colour so much lately. It is so flattering and the formula is lovely too. The colour is the perfect mix of a dark navy blue and purple.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful I would have never tried this color unless it came in some sort of set. This was one of my favorites in my Welcome Box. I'm glad I was forced to try new colors. This looks so amazing, and I am now, I guess I was before, looking forward to trying darker shades. lol
