I got my Julep Penny box! If you don't know what I'm talking about, I became a Julep Maven, which means that for $20 a month, I get $40-$60 of nail polishes/products that have not yet been released! When I signed up though, my first month's was ONE PENNY. However, Julep is a new company and my order must have gotten lost in translation somewhere. No worries though! I called and they were amazingly helpful on the phone and they sent it immediately! These are the polishes I received for my penny along with a Julep Top Coat, and a sample of lotion and hand scrub:
I tried super hard to capture the beauty in this polish, but it was really hard to do! This polish is beautiful in person, but my camera mostly just caught the black jelly base. You'll have to take my word for it. :o)
Last up is Julep Kim. This metallic gunmetal grey is just like the pictures! I have two coats here, and it applied easily with minimal streaking. I am not a big fan of metallic finishes, but I do love a good gray!
So, I had an idea a few days ago! I have decided that with my monthly Julep Maven box, I will do a water marble with the polishes that they send me to see how well the polishes go together! I might mix it up with nail art, but there will definitely be water marbling with those polishes. When I saw these polishes together in the box, all I could think of was how perfectly they all went together. And I was right! Check out the water marble on my ring finger and thumb...
here! If you use my link, I will receive a free box for every two people who sign up! And you can also choose to skip a month or send your box to a friend! Everyone wins!
