When I chose Kristjana as a polish in my December Julep Maven Box it quickly became a favourite. I wore this consistently through the holiday season and even in January it’s the polish I reach for most. I tend to paint my nails every three or four days, mainly because I can’t stand the look of chipped nails and I’m always accidentally banging my hands on things and wrecking my mani.
Julep describes Kristjana as a “Sweet Plum Holographic”. They definitely have the holographic part right, the finish is a deep purple with micro shimmer. It reminds me of the sky when the stars first start to come out and the sun is almost down. Very spacey!
This is a one to two coat polish depending on the finish you want. I’m not a nail blogger and my nail skills are… adequate, but not perfect. I use two coats to make up for any imperfections in my polish job and give it that plump salon look. I’ve been using Julep’s Oxygen Bonding Base Coat, it really helps reduce nail staining when applying darker polishes.
