(Squeal) I love seeing this box waiting on my doorstep :)
Hellooooo! So I finally got my July box a few days ago after hoping and wishing it’d come ever since I switched my box for it. I’d just done my nails a few days before so I couldn’t try out the polishes right away but around midnight last night I decided I couldn’t wait any longer to use them.
Here’s some unboxing pics (my favourite part of getting these boxes is probably the excitement and surprise of opening them ha):
Super cute wrapping inside! It’s supposed to be Canada Day themed but it’s a a little too American with the stars on the tissue paper mefinks. I bet you anything they probably had blue confetti for the US customers and took it out for all the Canadians :p The fireball candies (same flavour as those spicy cinnamon hearts you always get for Valentines day in elementary school) were a cute touch :)
My It Girl box! I switched to this box this month because 1) I have too much lipgloss, which all the other boxes included instead of an extra polish, and 2) I couldn’t resist the seafoam green polish. Oh and 3) I’m pretty much a sucker for anything sparkily.
From left to right: “Kate” a pearly white, “Daphne” seafoam green cream, “Mila” a “charcoal multi coloured glitter”, and “Oh Canada” iridescent and red glitter, which was freebie for this month. Normally $14 each x 4 = $56. Not bad for $20.
Daphne, the seafoam green, was basically the reason I picked this box so I had to try it out first.
Daphne with a few coats of Nicole by OPI’s “Make U Smile” (from their JBiebz line… which I totally got from Claires. Please don’t judge me). Sorry it’s super hard to focus because of the glitter.
As always, super great formula that goes on opaque pretty much in one coat. I used 2 coats in the above picture, with a few swipes of glitter topcoat, followed by some OPI topcoat. Super happy with this box! I wasn’t so happy with the June box which is why I haven’t bothered posting a review yet but maybe I’ll do that sometime this week too.
Julep’s still offering an intro Maven box for 1 cent if you’re interesting in signing up (you can always unsubscribe) if you enter “PENNY” or “COLOR2012” at the checkout after picking out which box you want at www.julep.com :)
