So, I have been a Julep Maven for a while now, I started sometime around summer of last year. The first two polishes I got were Mischa and Georgia, I remember this because my Mischa came broken! The awesome people at Julep immediately replaced the polish, with ANOTHER broken bottle! Crazy, I know! Julep once again replace my Mischa and finally the third one was the charm! Ever since then I have been eagerly awaiting for my Maven box to arrive in the mail every month! There have been a couple skipped boxes, and one golden box, but I have never blogged about my box. I always think about blogging about it, and then when it comes in the mail I tear into my box and immediately think, "Dang! I forgot to take photos before ripping into it," sometimes I try to repackage everything to get some photos. Ultimately it never works, and I always say "Next time." Well, I finally remembered to hold my horses before tearing into the box like a wild banshee!
This month I went with the Boho Glam box which came with Kaylen and Lena, and I added on Abbie and Mackenzie. I have never ordered the whole collection, and this time I had pretty much decided to be bad and do it, but alas everyone else had decided to do the same thing and it was sold out! Oh well, I will get the rest eventually I suppose. I thought it would be fun to do something using all 4 of the polishes, so I did a simple half/half design using the ones that came in the Boho box together and the ones that I added on together. All of the polishes were great, however I noticed that when Kaylen dried it had this matte plastic-y look to it. I actually kind of like it, but don't think its supposed to do that...I have had one other polish do this before too, but with a little top coat every thing is cool! I knew it would be easy to layer Mackenzie over Abbie, but was wondering about Lena going over Kaylen. I was pleasantly surprised with Lena, the coverage was great! I basically had to do one swipe with it. I also must say I really love Lena, I cant wait to use it by itself, Lena is definitely my favorite of the four. So, now that I finally remembered to take photos before wildly tearing into my box, please enjoy them! Please excuse the "ehh" photos of the box itself, I will do better next time! :)
