This is a manicure using a nail polish from Julep called Shoshanna. It was in my December Julep Maven Box. Julep calls it a "full coverage yellow holographic glitter polish". It's much prettier in person and video & photos don't show that, unfortunately. If you have ever seen gold holographic wrapping paper, that is exactly what it looks like! The reflection is simply amazing! The entire nail is reflecting a rainbow of colors. Reminds me of looking at the lights on a Christmas tree at night. I used three coats for the above manicure and I was shocked to see that it took half the bottle! I've never had one manicure take half a bottle of any brand. Mind you, Julep's are smaller than most brands at only .27 fl oz whereas OPI bottles are .5 fl oz. The polish was gloppy and thick and a bit tricky to apply. I used one coat of Perfect Formula's Manicure Booster as the base coat and one top coat of Seche Vite. It didn't feel rough at all with one coat, but I did apply another layer of top coat a few days later to help the manicure last longer. This manicure lasted ten days before it chipped just a bit. The tips were the issue, because the tips didn't wear but instead chipped and then the edge would snag on clothing. This is a pretty nail polish and I recommend giving it a try, if you have the patience to deal with a thick, gloppy polish.
