A Putrid Daisy

Hey all,


 I've had these swatches of Julep Daisy for ages so I thought I would pop them up now. Obviously I cannot get Julep easily in Ireland but I did manage to win 2 in a giveaway last year. I didn't know you could buy them separately but apparently you can. Now whether or not I think they are worth the price is up for debate.


 Julep Daisy is very sheer polish.which is fairly typical with yellow nail polishes. Daisy seems to be one of the worst yellow polishes I have tried so far unfortunately. In the bottle it is a gorgeous sunflower yellow but on the nail it looks like pus. Yup that's the best word I could find to describe it. That also sums up the formula quite nicely too. This is 3 coats and you can still see the nail . Dry time was just as bad. It took a while to dry so you'd need to layer this over a white or another yellow polish. Kind of defeats the point :P


From this alone I would not recommend Julep. The polish is not great at all and the formula only leads to frustration. In the bottle Daisy is gorgeous but on the nail it just looks dirty. Very disappointing.

  1. I have to agree with you on that color. ^_^; Although, now that I think about it, I have never had a good experience with yellow nail polish. The whole process of applying frustrates me so much and painting my nails shouldn't be a stressful event. Now I'm just put off buying yellow nail polish in general .

  5. It's a shame about the formula, but I have to say, your VNL kind of makes it look like you've created a fancy gradient ;) x
