Julep Melanie

And another add-on! Tonight I have Julep Melanie to show you-- this polish was one of the ones I was immediately interested in when Julep released the previews of this months boxes. Julep describes Melanie as a "pastel indigo metallic chrome." I want call this cornflower blue, though maybe it's too pale for that. This also sort of a demin feel to it, in spite of the shine.

Melanie is, of course, just like the others in terms of formula and you need to be careful when applying it. But I found Melanie to be pretty easy to work with, compared to some of the others. Here I used three thin coats and they went on nicely and dried quickly. It's well pigmented and I probably could have gotten away with two coats, but I like having three to really let the color shine.

I love this color-- it's absolutely gorgeous and does not disappoint. This was one of my favorites!
