Julep Maven July 2012 – It Girl (Canada)


Julep, Nail Polish, Reviews and Swatches, Subscription / Thursday, July 12th, 2012

 

I’m always so excited when my Julep Maven box arrives at my door, and this time was no exception! The July box was all about sparkle, fireworks and glitter – all the things I love most in a nail polish! I’m usually an “American Beauty” but this month I decided to go for the extra polish and get “It Girl”. I wasn’t sure about the lip gloss (which I hear is actually fantastic) so I stuck to these 4 gorgeous colours (plus two more to come in my add-on box!).

 

Daphne – Flash/No Flash

 

The Julep July It Girl box came with 3 polishes, Daphne – a fresh sea foam green creme, Mila – Charcoal Multi-coloured glitter and Kate -Soft White Pearl. Plus, everyone got a bonus polish this month to celebrate Independence Day in the States and Canada Day here in Canada! O Canada is a white, silver and red glitter.

 

 

I was a sucker for this particular box because I love glitter polishes. You can probably guess what my add-ons are! I especially like Julep’s glitters because they are really fine and can be layered easily. They also give a lot of glitter in only one coat!

 

 

These polishes (as always) apply smoothly with no streaking and give total coverage in two coats. Kate is an incredibly easy way to wear a white polish without it looking like white-out on your nails. It has a slight pearl so it keeps it pretty and dimensional on the nail. It’s also a great base for any coloured glitter!

 

 

O Canada is gorgeous and I wish I had it for Canada Day but there’s always next year! This would be great for Christmas time as well over red ¬†or white polish! The glitter in O Canada is much chunkier than the glitter in Mila and doesn’t apply as much glitter per coat.

 

 

So, of course as soon as I opened my box I had to do a NOTD with all the colours (except O Canada)! The sea foam green is so pretty and almost verges on teal, which I love. The white is perfect for an accent nail and Mila is a gorgeous glitter. It would look great over Daphne as well.

 

If you want to check out Julep Maven, you can sign up here and get your first box for only one penny! No joke! I highly recommend, but be careful, that’s how I got hooked!
