THE POLISH LOW DOWN
Both polishes are a new oxygen based formula. I have Julep's Oxygen and use it regularly on my toe nails except sandal season (then I have to paint my toes). So I was really interested in these two.

According to Julep, Katie is an orchid iridescent chrome. I am glad I didn't read the reviews until after I used it. Katie gave me no grief. But others had a horrible experience. Many times this polish managed to get just one and two stars from customers. Phrases like,"goopy, like glue, and worst nail polish I have ever bought", were some phrases that I remember. Thick, yes-but I was just very careful. And the color is oh so gorgeous!
Julep says Avni is a African Violet shimmer. The shimmer is the same color orchid as Katie. In all, it makes Avni a real stunner.
I did have trouble with using the sponge technique with these two. Avni just would not go on as strong as I wanted. That is why I ended up using brush and sponge to get the strong purple color on the tips.
I had to play with these two. Here's a little abstract. The orchid shimmer in Avni really shows up.
Well, that's it for this time. Until the next, take care............Terri
P.S. I didn't get October's box. Nothing thrilled me.
