So I know this is clearly late however I was rather preoccupied with last month's challenge so better late than never here was my Julep maven box from last month
Click read more for the rest!
This month the It Girl boxes included 3 polishes, Julep's new Freedom Polymer top coat and a small compact eyelash curler
This month I also added the colour Ginger on to my box since I wanted both the holos that Julep put out this month
So first off I'm going to talk about the Freedom top coat. I really love this, sure it doesn't dry as fast as SV or Poshe but in 5 minutes it is dried and good to go. I often find that even with a fast dry top coat I wind up smudging my nails anyways. So waiting five minutes for a really good solid finish is great. I just wish the bottle was bigger!
The first colour I swatched was Joan (named after Joan Crawford)
I found the formula on this one to be a bit thick but it's really nothing a few drops of thinner won't solve. Over all I really liked this colour. It did remind me a bit of Jodie from last month but Joan is more raspberry and the shimmer is bigger.
Then came Marion (after Marion Cotillard)
I loooooved this, the formula was awesome and this colour is awesome. I really considered stopping swatching and just wearing this.
Then we have Rebel (after one of my favourites Rebel Wilson)
When I saw this colour was going to be named after Rebel Wilson and was a holo I knew I had to become a maven. I love Rebel Wilson so much, anyone who can say sausage wallet with a straight face is a-okay in my books. As far as being a holo goes this one is pretty nice, it's not as in your face as Nfu Oh 61 but stand up waayyyy better than Butter London's Dodgy Barnett.
Lastly our add-on Ginger (after Ginger Rogers)
Ginger is billed as a "Sand" holo I really liked it it had the same formula and consistency as Rebel and was a two coater. I also have a picture of the new "Swatch me" stickers the bottles are now coming with.
