I got Julep Megan in the January Maven box along with Hayden, Leah & the fast dry topcoat. This is the first time I've used any Julep polish. I started with L.A. Colors basecoat topcoat & then did two coats of Megan. The first coat was pretty streaky & sheer, but after the second coat I think it evened out well & covered great even though you can see some brush strokes. I could have probably put another coat of Megan on, but I decided to just put on the L.A. Colors basecoat topcoat (I'm getting ready to leave tonight & have a ton of stuff to do). Sorry the pictures aren't the best, they're taken in artificial light.
