Shailene - It Girl is rated out of 5 by 53.
Rated 5 out of 5 by ErinG from Julep fixed it! Like many other Mavens, I received an early bottle of Shailene in my monthly box a couple months back, and the formula was pretty much useless. I was bummed, because I knew I would adore the color. Well, about a month and a half later I had a question to ask customer service, and since I was writing them anyway I decided to mention my goopy bottle of Shailene. Not only did I get an answer almost immediately, but they sent me a new bottle of Shailene! And it works! The formula is definitely on the thick side, but with this new bottle I was able to apply it without any fuss. After one coat it was good enough that I could've stopped, and two made it perfect. My mani lasted a week and a half with no chips. If they have a problem with their product, Julep will make it right... just tell them about it! :) LOVE this color! Thank you so much for the excellent service.

Rated 2 out of 5 by rerosenthal85 from So disappointed. Had to have this in my Maven box this month because the color is so pretty. When the box came and I swatched it, my first thought was, "is this bottle empty?" because it was so thick and chunky. It did not paint smoothly from brush to nail at all. It almost felt like "dry liquid", if that even makes any sense. I have put a really unreasonable amount of thinner in this bottle, and it is still unusable. I'm rarely let down by Julep polishes, but this one is pretty bad. :( Fortunately for all of us, I have found a couple of dupes. This color and finish seems to be very popular this season! So treat yourself to Zoya's Sansa, which is a dead-ringer for the color of Shailene with a PERFECT formula, or OPI's First Class Desires from the new 2014 Gwen Stefani holiday collection. The OPI one I haven't tried personally so I can't speak to the formula, but I have seen swatches and the color is extremely similar if not identical to Shailene.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Aileen from Very Disappointed :( I was very excited for this color to come in my October Maven box. However, upon receiving it, I was extremely disappointed with the consistency. I am glad to see that others had this problem as well and that it wasn't just me. The polish was very goopy and thick as if it had been left out without the cap on for some time. It is a shame because the color is really nice but I am afraid I will not be able to use it. I wish those of us that chose this box could get refunds on it or at least something to make up for it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by tideandthyme from Love the color, but too thick. Polish is gloopy. As previous reviewer stated, it's like the lid has been left off for a day or two. Great color, but very disappointing application!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MillieJazz from Good Bottle Weird! If I had anything to critique about Shailene, I would actually say the formula is a little thinner than usual, which is why I'm so surprised to see all these thickness issues. Like others have said, I suppose you may need to thin it out- but the color is gorgeous if you're willing to take the risk of getting 'thick' bottle and having to fix it! Dried fast and opaque in two coats.
