Per a cashier at Aldi, this is THE nail polish of the season. Listen to her – she KNOWS about nails.

Julep “Nehali” is rich paprika metallic. Paprika is an underrated spice. I used to think it was only for deviled eggs, but my husband makes a BBQ rub that has about a cup of paprika in it – it is astonishingly good.

This is two coats of “Nehali” over Julep Oxygen Smoothing Base Coat and under Glisten & Glow Top Coat. I was originally going for a plain paint job, but I closed a box with a tape gun before my nails were 100% dry and made a pretty good dent in the middle of my middle finger. Gold Rose decals to the rescue!

Please ignore my jacked up cuticles, I had pushed them back using Julep Vanish, but I didn’t do a very even job…ugh, they need a few days to recover.

I’ve never known anyone named “Nehali”, but it is a beautiful name.
