Julep Maven Box #6: It-Girl (Polish Lover) Resort Collection January 2012
|January 18, 2012||Posted by peach_ under Julep Maven|
This month has been the most exciting month yet to receive a Julep Maven Box! My eyes lit up as soon as I’d received the email notice revealing its content, and I was so stoked to see the nail polishes in person.
For this month, Julep came out with the Resort Collection to start off the year, and while tropical colors may seem out of place in the middle of January, I was more than eager add these spring-ready polishes to my arsenal. Besides, aren’t fashion and beauty always a season ahead?
Starting with this box, the It Girl style now became synonymous with Polish Lover, which means the It Girl box will include nothing but nail polishes for the following months, while other styles will include hand/body/nail care items and other non-polish goodies.
Included in the January 2012 It Girl (Polish Lover) Julep Maven Box:
- Hayden Nail Vernis (swatched here), a bold and bright neon peach crème (reg. $14)
- Megan Nail Vernis, a playful and sultry Mediterranean aquamarine (reg. $14)
- Leah Nail Vernis, a vivid and refreshing grass green with a hint of shimmer (reg. $14)
- Sample packet of Nail Polish Remover Pad (which I’ve already misplaced…)
- Freebie Julep Nail Therapy, for using alone or as a base coat (reg. $16)
- Black & silver confetti, as featured in photos
I was really pleased to find that the polishes now have new labels! (But not Hayden, yet.)
I always thought the old, often smudged labeling with bar code ruined the packaging. I wanted to remove them, but if I did, I had no other way to know the name of the color because those labels were the only ones indicating the names.
Now the new labels look much neater, and it’s a peel-off sticker that reveals the ingredients underneath.
And the best part? You can remove the bar codes altogether since the bottom of the bottles indicate the names now.
I’m already wearing Hayden and will show you soon! Just looking at these colorful bottles makes me so giddy!
