Orange you glad it's Friday? Featuring Julep Kaylen

Hey ladies (and possibly gentlemen!!) Welcome back for another installment of "Orange You Glad It's Friday?" This is my second week in a row being on time with this post! Everyone say "HOORAY!!" :) I'm pretty proud of myself.

A little for-warning before you read this post. I am going on vacation to North Georgia next week. This vacation will consist of mountain biking, hiking, etc. Therefore. . . I shortened my beautiful nails down to nubbins for safety reasons. I can only imagine the catastrophes that might happen to a long nails on the mountain bike or hiking path!

Now. . . I'm not super impressed with my nubbins. Please bare with me while they grow back! :) I just want to stay safe while away. The good news? They do GROW back! :) :) :)

Ok now on to what you came here for!

I either purchased or got this bright orange polish off someone in a Facebook group brand new.

This is Julep- Kaylen. Kaylen is a bright orange creme polish. Unfortunately, when I looked on the Julep website, I did not see it available for purchase currently. So if you fall in love with this color you might have to check out polish trade groups on Facebook.

While I do love the bright orange color of Kaylen, I am not in love with it's formula. I found the formula to be somewhat chunky in places. To avoid chunks I had to wipe the brush on the inside rim of the polish multiple times.

Dry time was fairly nice though. I also only used 2 coats of polish for this look. It is not totally opaque. If you want total opacity you would probably need 1 or 2 more coats on top. I really like the look of just 2 though!
