Take Alternate Route
Observe: Julep Nail Varnish in Nina (which is my twin's name!). This color is some kind of mix between creamsicle and traffic signal, with a little tangerine thrown in for good measure. It applied really well, a nice opaque cream, but something quite strange happened while I was wearing it. I was just going about business as usual when each nail started to peel off wholesale. It seems the polish did not adhere to my nail at all. Which means no staining, but also no lasting power. Perhaps I didn't wait long enough for my basecoat to dry. I really love the color, it's perfect for early summer, so I'll definitely be giving it another try, but if the same thing happens again, I'll have to relegate it to accent color.
