Day 2 - Orange Nails; Julep - Christina

Day 2 - Orange Nails

Julep - Christina

Hi everyone! I've never been a huge fan of orange polish. And by that I mean I can count my orange polishes on one hand. Which I think is saying something, but maybe not haha who knows. Anyways, as I was saying, orange isn't my thing. I have red-ish hair (see photo below) so I try to avoid orange. It isn't in my palette.
Sort of brunette, Sort of ginger.
Either way, orange is a no.
Back to polish and away from my soul-less ginger hair. Like I said before, this is Julep's Christina. It's deep shimmery orange, but in certain lighting could definitely pass for red. Christina only needed 2 coats for full opacity. I ended up using three though because I decided to put the orange nail glitter I received in my Maven box on my tips after the first two coats dried. I topped this with a coat of Palladio's High Brilliance top coat so the glitter would set.

I would have used Seche for a glossier finish, but I was so nervous the glitter would ruin the top coat I decided against it. The glitter didn't end up moving too much though. It didn't cling to my brush or ruin the top coat so that was good. I still wouldn't risk my Seche though.

The formula for Christina was actually really nice. I sound surprised because some of Juelp's other polishes have been really streaky for me. This one wasn't at all. It went on smooth and didn't leave a million brush stroke lines. Woo!

Here is the manicure before a top coat.

And the orange glitter!
 So that's my orange mani. Am I the only one that hates on orange polish? This polish is pretty, but not my style.
