NOTW: Julep "Lindsay"

I'm eternally on the search for the perfect blackened red jelly. One of those red at first coat, and slowly but surely getting deeper, and just more beautifully blackened. Like a garnet. I think I've gotten closer to my ideal polish with Julep's Lindsay.
This was a polish I ordered on my own, and not in one of my Julep Maven boxes. Julep Polishes retail for $14 on their own and come with less polish in the bottle when compared to the standart polish, so yes, they are on the expensive side. In general though I have had great results from Julep Polishes in that they're mostly all 2 coat polishes and they last about 4 to 5 days with no chipping for me.
"Lindsay"really just looks like blackberry juice on the nails with the first coat. With the second, the red gets deeper and the third brings a nice glossy finish and completes the deep, dark red jelly look.
I actually got a manicure and pedicure done for the first time in ages and had the ladies paint this on my nails so I can't tell you what they used as a base and top coat but the combination lasted a week on my nails with no chipping. Again, two coats would have been enough for me but they did 3 coats on both my nails and toes.
Julep Polishes can be purchased on their website.
