If you love ipsy, then you may just recognize the next shade here! Today I grabbed JulieG Tropical, a matte neon turquoise/mint polish from the May 2016 five piece release. If you're an ipster, this was also included in a limited edition bottle but I purchased mine straight from the website.
Now as I mentioned in my last post, my nails are pretty trashed. I'm still trying to remove acrylic from my right hand and my left index finger is incredibly sore where the natural nail was filed too far down. I attempted to use Duri Rejuvacote for this manicure but the neon in Tropical would NOT play well. I decided to pull out a bottle of Cult Nails Get It On, and then carefully applied 3 thin coats of Tropical. Although this is a matte, being neon, I added Glisten & Glow HK Girl top coat to bring out the glossy.
Being a neon, this polish dries QUICK and if you don't pay attention, you can easily pull up the layers when applying the next coat. I also think the unevenness of my nails didn't help as my ring finger was streaky no matter what I did. But overall I LOVE this color and am seriously considering it for my next pedicure.
Teeny tiny little nubs! After my last posting, I had to once again cut down my nails because of splitting. No worries - they typically grow quickly and I have a plethora of nail oils and cuticle balms to play with. I may even consider wearing gel polish for a week to hopefully keep down the splits. We'll see.
Back to the polish - you can see the streaks on my ring finger but they aren't terrible. Great color especially for less than a cup of Starbucks coffee.
You can purchase JulieG in Rite Aid stores across the US or shop online at Jesse's Girl Cosmetics which ships worldwide! JulieG sells for $3.99 for a 0.35 fl oz (10 mL) bottle.
