Petra

I saved the prettiest for last. This is Julep “Petra”cranberry magenta shimmer – the last of the three polishes I received in my August Julep box.

I don’t know about magenta – all I see is FUCHSIA!

This was a difficult polish to work with. I thought it would be a similar formula to the others, but it was thicker and more viscous. It seemed to pull back from the edges as it dried – so annoying! It also left some weird edges around my cuticles – it didn’t clean up nicely. I felt personally victimized by this nail polish.

This is two coats over Julep Oxygen Smoothing Base CoatΒ (uh oh, my bottle is almost empty) and under Glisten & Glow Top Coat. Despite all my whining about application – I ended up wearing a good six days – and it still looks pretty good, even after a trip to the waterpark.
