Rated 2 out of 5 by from Love it on, LOATHE taking off. This nail polish was beautiful on, but dyed my hands blue when taking it off. Don't even touch unless you want to dip your hands in acetone

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Glad Julep knows my taste better than I do... I got Ilsa as a mystery add-on for something (wish I could remember what). For some reason I wouldn't have picked this shade for myself even though I tend to love shades that are so deep they can be mistaken for black in some lighting--especially in fall/winter. This color is unbelievably good. The formula is easy, not thick, stays exactly where you put it, not streaky, glassy shine even without a top coat (not that I'd go without one) and (are you sitting down?) is perfectly opaque in one coat. For a shade this dark to be an easy OCW is virtually unheard of. Today I have it on with Ellis (Boho Glam, October 2015) as an accent. The deep inky, glassy shine paired next to the blazing holo effect is so fantastic. A look I'm sure I'll be repeating through the fall and winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Darker than navy I got this as a mystery add on in my September Maven box. At first the color looked purple, but when I put it on, it appeared the dark blue that it is. On my very fair skin, I would say it's even darker than navy. I had it on my feet & inside it looked almost black. It's also the creme finish which means one coat can be enough, but it also takes forever to dry. Be aware.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful color, formula a little too thick I got this as a bonus gift in my Maven box a few months ago, I never would have picked it for myself. That being said, I am glad free gifts allow me to expand my horizons. Ilsa is a beautiful deep blue that only looks black in very low lighting. I took pictures indoors and out to show the color. While it dries to an incredibly high shine, the formula was too thick for me to do an even coat on my nails. Once I thinned it it was perfect! I took pictures without a top coat to show how the thinner second coat did not completely cover the bubbling that resulted from the first coat. Oxygen Topcoat fixed all that, and now I have lovely, glossy, definitely-not-black nails! I would highly recommend thinner for several of Julep's cream polishes, as well as the topcoat once it gets gluey. So far the only cremes I've had to thin (other than Ilsa) were Phyllis, Cody, and Brandis. All older cremes, which might have something to do with it. Other than that this polish would have gotten five stars. GREAT opacity, pretty color, and smooth formula once I put about 5 drops of thinner in it. Did not stain my cuticles or skin when I went to do clean-up. I did 2 coats of base due to the darkness of the color, so hopefully it won't stain my nails.
