Nail Files #50

Julep Vivien
Okay, so I got my second Julep box...and I've tried out all three of the polishes. Vivien is amazingly adorable and I love it. But it chipped really fast. I tried to do the first pinspiration nail with the green polish, but it totally peeled off with the tape. I've ended up cancelling my Julep Maven subscription. The colors are amazing, but the polish doesn't meet my nail polish standards.

I got the same Maven box this month and, like you, LOVED Vivien. And also like you, I tried the Christmas tree design with tape but found that the lines bled. I'm still kind of iffy on whether I'm going to keep my subscription. The brushes are all wonky (only one didn't need to be trimmed) so we'll see what the New Year brings in terms of colours. Is it just the Julep polishes that chips on your nails? Maybe it needs a different brand of top coat? I love the theory of Julep--low-odor--but I'm not 100% sold. Whoa, that was a long comment! Haha!

That french manicure with Christmas colors! And that snowflake mani is so cute, too!

Have a great weekend!

Ok I'm glad i'm not the only one who can't get the tape to work. It never works for me!!! That's why my manis are always boring :/
I do love that color though!

Sorry Julep doesn't work for you. I have nothing but good luck - but I don't have many of the glitters. Hopefully you can make the ones work that you did receive.

I feel like my glitter always chips, no matter how much top coat I use. It bums me out, but at least it's not as noticeable as regular cream polish. These pins are all so cute. I wish I had the patience to make my nails super cute.

Aw what a bummer. My friend told me that nails have their own chemical makeup so sometimes products don't work on all nails. But you're the first person I've heard of having this issue with Julep, maybe it's the base coat? I know I love them and have had no issus.
