Julep – Audrey

Instead of buying a bunch of new polish, I decided to go through all the polish I have and force myself to wear them. In the midst of organizing the polish that I have and figuring out how to display them in such a way that I can see all the colors, I found Julep’s Audrey. I have had this polish for months, and I remember trying it on, but I don’t recall ever actually wearing it. So I decided to paint my nails with it last night:

Can I just say the shimmer is this color is amazing, and the pictures really don’t do it justice. Audrey is a pale pink polish with a gorgeous silver shimmer. I believe I got this color in a Julep mystery box. Nonetheless, if you are looking for a low key neutral color, and can still get your hands on this one, you may want to cop it. It’s a nice twist on the traditional pinky nude polish that I am used to seeing. It’s a bit sheer so you will need at least three coats. You can find it on sale here.

I hope you all enjoyed this post! xx

Julep Spring Mystery Box

I was on Facebook last week and Julep had asked if anyone wanted them to do a Spring Mystery Box, and of course, hundreds (if not thousands) of people said yes. I had never ordered one before, but I have heard people mention how amazing their Mystery Boxes have been in the past. They claimed that for a one time payment of $19.99 (this price is for Julep Mavens only) you would receive $60 to $200 worth of products. So I thought, what the hay!? I might as well try my hand…and here is what I received:

I obviously didn’t win the $200 prize box! Lol…However, I thought this was a really cute and afforable idea. Here’s what was included in the box:

  • Julep Nail Polishes: Brooke, Marisa and Melissa
  • Julep Essential Cuticle Oil
  • Julep Nail File
  • Julep Base Coat
  • Spring/Easter Inspired Chocolate

I wanted to try Brooke and Melissa anyway, and if I had just purchased the two of them from the website using my discount I would have paid about $23. So I think this was a pretty good deal for $20…

Brooke is a shimmery purple that I will probably use as a top coat. Marisa is a gorgeous dark blue, which I already own but I certainly don’t mind having a back-up (see my post on Marisa here). Finally, Melissa is an sheer opalescent color that I will probably use as a top coat as well.

Out of the four months that I have been a member of Julep, I’ve skipped two, but I am thinking that being a Maven is beneficial even if I don’t order a box every month…Sidenote: The last time I was in Sephora, I saw that they have a nail polish bar now (which I think is amazing in and of itself!), and I noticed that Julep nail polishes were available for purchase there for $14. However, I’m not sure if they are in all Sephora retail stores so check your with your local store to be certain…

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed this post…Be sure to let me know what you think about Julep…What has your experience been with them?? Also, if you want to see swatches, feel free to let me know! Muah! XOXO

Quick Post : NOTD

So I purchased these loose studs a couple of weeks ago from Sally’s Beauty Supply for about $4, and have been meaning to use them to do a manicure. I have now found the time to use them. I had originally planned to use them on all of my nails, but time didn’t really permit so I had to just go with one accented nail on each hand. I think it’s kind of hot though…What do you think?

I used Julep’s Marisa (dark blue), which is very opaque, and used a dotting tool to place the studs on my ring fingers. Loves it!!
