Julep February “It Girl” Swatches

I’m totally in love with my Julep box this month!  I chose the “It Girl” box and it came with three polishes, a top coat, a cute little travel eyelash curler and two chocolate heart candies (which I devoured instantly!).  If you’ve considered signing up for the Julep Maven program, I highly recommend it.  Each month you receive a box of goodies worth at least $40 in retail value for only $19.95.  They send you an email to preview the boxes that are available and you can select a different box than the style profile they match you up with, or you can gift the box to someone else, or if you are strapped for cash or just don’t like the selections you can opt out for that month.  Pretty simple.

Here are the gorgeous polishes that were in my box this month.  First up is Joan, which is described as raspberry plum with rose gold shimmer.  The shimmer on this one is really amazing.

Next is Marion which is described as a smokey blue with silver shimmer. My swatch doesn’t do this one justice!

And I saved my favorite for last… this is Rebel.  At first I thought this was just a silver shimmer, until I applied it and it dried.  Hello… this is a stunning silver holographic polish.  It dries with a semi-matte finish, but with a top coat it’s nice and shiny.  I can’t stop looking at my nails and playing with the holo effects in different lighting.  Holo effects are so hard to capture on camera, so here are a few shots.  I’m thinking about doing some nail art over this one.  :)

    I use gel polish, but I love the Julep Joan color. I know that you use a lot of gels, so have you come across any that are a dupe for Joan? Your website is awesome for picking new colors to order! I did click thru your post to order on Amazon :)

      I haven’t, but I asked some friends and they made these suggestions: IBD Indian Sari (a little on the purple side), and Couture Cranberry Cosmo. :) Thanks for using my links!
