Over the weekend I decided to redo my nails with Julep Sarah. It was my add-on from my May Julep Maven box but I had some issues getting it delivered to me. It finally arrived on Saturday. I'm glad it finally arrived because it is just as lovely as I had expected it to be and I HAD to get it onto my fingers!
This is going to be a polish, I think, a lot of people are going to say they don't enjoy because it is sheer and you can see the tips of my nails with two coats. You could build it up more but I didn't want to risk getting it too thick and have it end up peeling off. I actually don't mind it being sheer, either. Something about jelly finish polishes in summer is okay in my book.
Sarah is a sheer jelly finished pinky-coral polish with glitters swirling through it. The glitters definitely show up on the nail too. It is a very spirited nail polish. If you don't mind it being on the sheer side then I highly recommend trying this one out. It just screams warm weather and being by the poolside.
I didn't have any problems with the consistency. It wasn't gloopy, as some glitter polishes can be. It smoothed on with ease and is almost one of those polishes you don't have to be too careful with. It is hard to make this one look sloppy and messy. Something I did want to mention, though, is that even with a thick top coat like Seche Vite you can slightly feel unevenness to the top. It isn't enough to be scratchy or snag on anything but it isn't entirely smooth. If you are okay with 2 coats of top coat that would fix that. I don't mind it because it isn't nearly as bad as some glittery polishes and since it isn't catching on anything, I'm not irritated by it.
