Horray! It’s time for the next stop on the JulieG Summer Cruise: Old San Juan.We’ve been to Santorini, Miami Beach, and Canary Islands. Once we leave OSJ we’ll be heading to Tahiti and Rio! Get excited..
I’ve got to admit, since I’ve fallen down the Orange is the New Black rabbit hole this weekend, I’ve had orange on the brain – Old San Juan was an easy choice for my weekend mani!
Old San Juan is a creamy light orange reminiscent of dreamsicles, an old favorite summer treat. I’m actually really glad that Alli sent this to me, as it’s not a color I’d have picked out for myself.
While I like the color, the formula had me a bit disappointed – especially after Alli had such a fantastic experience with Canary Islands. It was a bit thick at first and hard to work with- so I added a few drops of thinner. It was better after that, but it still took 4 coats to even everything out and cover up bald spots.
All my complaints aside, it was worth the effort – and I so rarely have the patience for difficult polishes. I really like the finished look.
