August Julep Maven Classic With a Twist Box Review and Swatches

This month's Julep Maven box is inspired by this seasons jewelry trends and according to Julep's facebook the Olympics! Metallics and chromes, polishes swirled with metallic flecks, are shimmery and shiny. Classic With A Twist included Felicity, a yellow gold, and Alfre, a metallic purple. These polishes are fast drying (sometimes a little too fast) and apply evenly. Some colors, escpecialy the lighter ones such as Piper, can appear streaky and need more coats for even coverage.

 The extras in this month's box are nail polish remover and a tote bag. This isn't just any nail polish remover, this nail polish remover is acetone free and has a hand pump that you can simply apply a cotton ball too. Guess what, it is reusable! All of this for only $20 with free shipping. Do you think receiving nail polish and extras every month is awesome, then you can sign up here! Right now you can get your first box for only one penny! Use promo code PENNY.

It is going to be a good day when you see the Julep Box!

Julep's one year anniversary box!

Julep helps style you by matching clothes and accessories to your polish. I personally will be wearing Ruffian Gold by MAC with my polish.

When julep says its a celebration, everything sparkles, even the packaging paper!

Julep tote bag, perfect for those random makeup shopping trips to the drugstore. I can stay green and look good.

 As for the nail polish. It works as good as any nail polish I've ever tried with the exception of my fingers did not feel dry afterward. This is a good thing, plus the pump has a locking feature that allows it to be safely closed if their are children around.

 The best way to end this entry is with a positive quote, which is also included in every maven box.
