I was happy to receive O Canada in my July Julep Maven box because I liked the idea of a clearer, less flashy nail polish that I could apply to my fingernails that would not appear worn out as fast as an opaque colour. I figured chips would not be apparent because most of the nail is clear anyway and that this would make the polish last a long time (compared to the others which I'm finding look like crap within days).
Here is my hand with O Canada, 2 days after application. Notice 2 things:
1) Uneven red dots. It was very hard to get the red dots on there. Sometimes there were none, sometimes there were tons...
2) Most importantly, the lack of polish on the tops of all nails!

I'm so terribly disappointed!!!!
I was really stoked about this nail polish. I loved the look of it and the clear base, I still love the idea of it. But the result was super disappointing.
This is O Canada 2 days after application. It looked like that yesterday too which means that within 24h, half of the nail had no polish on it from GIANT chips. I put it on the same way as I have been my other Julep polishes so my conclusion is that this polish is not durable since 8 out of 10 fingernails were totally and crazily chipped.
Any nail polish application advice is VERY welcome because as I wrote in my disclaimer, I have problems with nail polish staying on.
