April Julep Maven Box

Hey guys,

So I was super stoked when the reveal for the April box was released. The box was chock full of bright vivid colours, which I love. There was actually a lot of fantastic unique (to me anyways) colours in this box, so after a short battle with the rational half of my brain the compulsive half decided this month was an upgrade month. The colour descriptions are a bit interesting but that is neither here nor there. Oh man was I happy I went for the upgrade, click for more after the jump.

The Vivid Collection
Shocking hibiscus with gold shimmer
Yay! finally a Julep polish with my name and it is AWESOME! No sissy baby pink for my name. This is an in your face pink. A bit on the sheer-ish side so this is three coats.

Vibrant jungle chrome
Now I'm not sure exactly what colour Jungle is, but this is a it more green in real life than these pics show so we'll say that it's a green-teal colour. This was two coats.

Hyped cobalt sheer
I really liked this one, It's more jelly than sheer (is there a difference? I don't know) but it built up well.
This is three coats.

Overexposed yellow chrome
I really liked this one, it's super bright and I don't really have anything quite this shade of yellow. Watch for brush strokes though.
This was 3 coats.

Electric iris sheer with violet sheen
This was probably my favourite of the collection, I couldn't stop staring at my nails all day.
This is 3 coats.

Neon chartreuse chrome
Like Sunny, this is a green that I don't quite have anything similar to.
This is 2 coats.

Exotic dragon fruit with blue shimmer
Another winner here too, a super bright purple (not quite the colour of dragon fruit) with a great blue shimmer in it. This is 3 coats.

Electric bubblegum sheer with blue sheen
Another outside the box sheer here, This is four coats.

Juicy tangerine shimmer
What is a vibrant collection without a fantastic orange? Here it is.
This is 3 coats.

Black speckled mint crème
So this one is perfect for easter. It doesn't fit in with the collection but that is likely why it was an add on.
This is 2 coats


  1. Most of these look stunning but my favourite has to be Phoebe - wow!
