January "It Girl" Julep Maven-Megan & Leah

Yesterday, I introduced you to the Julep Maven program and Julep Hayden-a peach creme polish.  Today, I bring you the other two polishes in my box-Leah and Megan.
Up first is Leah!  She is a beautiful, light grassy green creme that reminds me of eating apples in the springtime! Let me just say, that I am NOT a green nail polish kind of girl. Now, I love green in my wardrobe, and I wear it a lot and love almost every shade of it; but I have been very resistant to it on my nails. I think it makes me look dead or something weird. LOL.  I did, however, buy Sonia Kashuk's Fatigued and Zoya Ki last year. I also have an OPI in a cute apple shade that I bought specifically for nail art.; but I DON'T wear green by itself.
  After wearing this, that may change.  Leah went on in three-four coats. Kind of a lot, I know. It seemed to streak and I wanted it opaque, but it really wasn't a problem. It dried quickly. It has a really neat satiny finish that I don't want to mess up with top coat.  You can see that in the pictures. It is a beautiful shade of green-just the type of color I would wear in my clothes! It grew on me in about two minutes. Thank you, Julep!
 I totally saved the best for last here!  Megan is completely and totally up my alley!  Not only is it a gorgeous jewel-toned blue hue, but it is shimmery as well!  When it comes to my favorite color of nail polish, blues and purples are both neck and neck!  I love this aquamarine!  Just like the other two, she goes on super easily and in two coats!  I can't wait to get my penny box and to see what is coming in February!  If you would like to be a Maven and get $40-$60 worth of polishes and hand stuff for $19.99,  join here!  You get to take a fun quiz that tests your style and you are set!
