Julep's Daphne

I am just going to start off with what is really bothering me and that is this nail polish. It is so far from the color it was advertised as on their website that really it should be false advertising. I added this as an add-on to my Julep Maven box this month and it is a serious disappointment. It is a lovely color for what it is but it is not the polish that I wanted when I added it my box. The color on the website is a soft light green/minty creme polish. Julep's description of the polish is a "fresh seafoam green creme" which doesn't fit the description of the bottle I am holding.

As for the nail polish that I actually got it is a medium dusty green/teal creme. The formula is a little on the watery side but it was still pretty easy to work with and was opaque in two coats. Pictures are shown with two coats of Daphne and one coat of Seche Vite. As for the wear of this it wasn't so great. I had chipping the next day and the nail polish came off my nail in a full sheet off my thumb. I didn't use a base coat but still this doesn't seem normal to me.

I emailed their customer service to tell them that the color I got was a lot different than what was advertised and I wasn't too happy with it and they were great by saying they would send me a different color of my choice.  What I wasn't too happy with was their answer to the color difference which was: "We sincerely apologize for any dissatisfaction with the color. Image color can differ than actual product color, depending on the resolution of computer screen, lighting, etc"

Now I know color can vary from the computer to in person a little but this color was shown as a light color and I received a dark color so I will let you guys be the judge. 

This is what the color was supposed to look like:

Here is the actual color I got on my hands and in the bottle.

And for fun a little nail stamping fail.
