So how did this all start?

Last year I was introduced to indie nail polishes and fell head over heels in love with how unique and fun they were compared to most mass market and even high end nail polish brands. I amassed a pretty significant collection, but not too long after I ordered supplies to start making my own. Which got me thinking..Why not start sharing my love of glitter with others?

I worked on the polishes all last summer and was hoping to launch then but then recruiting season came up, and then school, and then exams, and one thing after the other (you know how it is). But now I’m finally ready to share my polishes with the world!

I decided to do a horoscope collection for my first collection because I haven’t seen any out there, and as cheesy as it sounds I think there’s a bit of truth to them. Whether or not you agree, I hope there’s a colour for everyone in the final collection I came up with :)

So without much ado, onto the fun part: the swatches! (and at the very end, the giveaway!)

Julep Valentines Mystery Box

So the doorbell rang a little while ago and I bolted to the door right away hoping it was my mailman with my Julep Mystery Box – and it was! I feel like I’ve been waiting for aaaggeeesss for this box and have been super antsy to receive it.

010

Yay!

I opened it up right away and immediately knew I had lucked out when the first thing I saw wasn’t nail polish but product…

Is that pink grapefruit body frosting I see?

Is that pink grapefruit body frosting and everday SPF I see?

Sure enough, I dug around and here’s the amazing mystery box I received!

Woohoo!

Woohoo! This is Box 8

Blah

The polishes I received!

I’m so happy with the box I received! I paid $19.99 for this box (actually less, more like around $10 because I used a Bloomspot voucher that gave me a $50 Julep gift card for $20) and in return got 8 polishes ($11.20 x 8), a voucher for a polish of my choice ($11.20), Julep Everyday SPF ($22.40), Julep Topcoat for Hair ($12.80), and Julep Pink Grapefruit Body Frosting ($14.40) for a total value of about $150 using Maven pricing. The best part is that none of the nail polish colours are dupes for me, and I’m actually in need of a new base coat so this couldn’t have come at a better time!

If you’re interested in becoming a Julep Maven they offer your first box for free if you use the promo code “FREEBOX” when you take a style quiz here and sign up for your intro Maven box! If you do sign up I’d be super happy if you used my referral code: 1668128 ♥

Did you buy a mystery box? What did you get?

Julep Maven July It Girl Review

Image

(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):

Image

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 :)
