Untried A-Z Challenge Letter J
Can you believe it's already the 10th week of the Untried A-Z Challenge! I feel like it's just flying by, and honestly, I'm falling a bit behind with my planning. Part of that is because life is getting busier and part of it is because my nails have decided to betray me. They are a hot mess right now which is frustrating and making me unmotivated to paint them. anyone else dealing with this same struggle? While I soak my hands in cuticle oil and try to repair the damage our crazy weather has done why don't you enjoy today's Letter J post.
For my Letter J polish, I chose Juiced from Top Shelf Lacquer. While this is one of my newer untried's its one that is perfect for the warmer months. Juiced was released in 2017 as part of the Drunken Creme Fall Holo Collection. This collection is still available for purchase as a complete collection or individual bottles.
Juiced is described on the website as a perfect fall pumpkin orange crème holo polish but for me, it pulls a little pinker giving it an almost salmon like color. The holo is a bit muted but I actually like it that way, you get a bit of sparkle in the sun but a creme look in regular lighting.
The application process was phenomenal, with the polish applying like butter. Everything went on evenly with a nice opacity. I was left with only a slight VNL after the first coat. Shown here is 2 coats plus top coat.
I actually really like the look of this muted holo. Typically I go for the big holo flame polishes but I might be converting after wearing this. I'm very glad I ended up picking up the entire collection and can't wait to try more of the colors.
What do you think of the finish on this polish? Are you a fan of the muted holo or do you prefer a stronger holo flame? Let me know what you think in the comments and please consider joining me the week of the 28th for letter K week in the Untried A-Z Challenge. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Polishing!
