    Purple Orchid: it's actually a pretty good representation of the color. I typically don't like dark colors but here lately this one and a gray/silver color (Disco Fever) have been appealing to me...

    Oooh, I like that, Mel! I need to branch out and try some new colors. I tend to wear shimmery or very pale neutral tones because they go with pretty much anything and it's easier to hide a crappy paint job, but I'd love to get a purple, a bright pink, and an aqua/turquoise color.

    That pic has ruined my life for today. Can you imagine how it'd feel every time you had to dig in your purse for something?

    If I have on more than 2 coats I feel smothered. I could not stand that.

    That is ick-nasty!!! Anyone in here a Julep Maven?? So far I have loved EVERYTHING in the box I get every month. I was reading a million pages back that y'all couldn't find a nice coral. Julep has one called "Teri". Real pretty. I'll swatch it and post photos for you.

    I'm trying to add some neutral/nude shades to my collection. The problem with the neutral shades is that they are often too sheer and need more than the standard 2 coats to get a streak-free, opaque color without the visible nail line. Any suggestions to get rid of this problem? Is there some kind of special base coat I can use or maybe a white polish underneath?

    These are two of my favorite nude polishes

    How do you apply it to get the smooth, opaque look like in the picture? I'm still experimenting with it to get the look that I want.

    I love neutrals. I get it as close as possible to hand color. It lengthens fingers and just looks clean. I don't have a problem with streaking. Just make sure your nails are squeaky clean,no oil trace before polish.

    if you put on milky neutrals with usual long brush strokes, they'll streak. the trick is to put a little dollop of polish in the middle of your nail and sort of 'spread' it around instead of doing long strokes.

    I use Orly Bonder base coat and normally 4 coats of polish .I normally don't have that many issues with streaking with Tickle My Francie . Next time I paint my nails that color I'll let you know

    I always wear nudes, and only need two coats of colored polish, never get streaks. Sputs right, it's in how it's polished.

    1 base coat- Orly Bonder, 2 coats polish, 1 coat Seche Vite topcoat
