One of my friends and I independently applied Julep Lauren (which came in the Spring Mystery box) to our nails over the weekend. Her picture is first below. Mine, on the bottom, is three coats of Lauren and one coat of Freedom Polymer Top coat. She said she used Seche Vite top coat and Julep quick dry drops.
I really liked the glaze finish on this polish! It did wear off a tad quickly on the tips of my nails, but I just filed my nails way down and didn’t really smooth them a lot, so I can’t really blame it on the polish. I love this polish and it’s already one of my faves!
Julep describes Lauren as Hot tropical pink crème. I have to say I really think it’s more of a glaze – it is very thin and sheer but this is what I like because I can build the color through thin coats, which adhere better. I love it! Ten stars!
