MY FIRST JULEP MAVEN BOX!

I’m a sucker for nail products especially nail polish. So after reading about all the lovely ladies subscribed to the Julep Maven box, I  just had to get in on it…..Oh did I forget to mention it only cost me 1 penny!!!! what!!! Yup!!!!

Meet my Julep Maven Box….shes so sleek 🙂

Do not tell me there are goodies inside a box and  then expect me to patiently open it. NOPE I tore the box open and look what came out 🙂

This is the Julep glycolic hand scrub. Think St. Ives Apricot Scrub but more citrusy smell. it left my hands feeling very soft and slightly hydrated

Now to the nail polish!! On the online test, I tested as BOHO GLAM. While the words sound exactly like me, I wasn’t too in love with the nail colors, but I am so glad I stuck to the BOHO colors because I really really  love one of the colors.

The grey is called “Meryl” and  it is a very nice creamy grey. While I like the muted color, I already have a grey that is an exact match for this.

The yellow one is called “Blake” and I love Blake 🙂 Normally  I love crazy vibrant colors on my nails, but this the PERFECT buttery yellow to make me turn towards pastels

OVERALL: For a penny I love what I got! I mean how can you complain when you literally paid nothing. However would I become a monthly subcriber…….for $2o/month probably not. Ouch, I know. I love nail varnish but I mean come on I can go to the drugstore and pick up polish for like a buck, so sorry Julep Maven, although your introductory offer is AWESOME, I just can not see myself paying that much each moth for nail polish and hand products.

BAM Bitches! Spring is here! (Current polish obsession)

Excuse the profanity in the title, but for the first time in my life I’m purposely following a “fashion trend,” therefore I felt it necessary to go over the top.

So if you follow fashion blogs or read magazines, then you have probably read all of them tootin’ and hollerin’ about how pastels are in for the spring. The thing that gets me though is that, aren’t pastels ALWAYS the “thing” for spring. Whatever.

Anywhosizzles, back to my post. So this week I’m feeling very spring-y so I wanted to wear a fun color that reflected that. Hence my lavenderish nails 🙂

I love purple so of course it would only  be fitting that my first post about  nail polish be purple.

Color: The color that I am wearing is called “Fun in the Sun” by L.A Colors. It’s a gorgeous pastel purple with a semi-matte finish.

Lasting Power: Okay here is the bummer. I put this nail polish on and it chipped within a day. While this could be because I didn’t wear a top coat or base coat, I have found LA Colors to be a very cheap company. BUT, I am okay with that because I hate wearing the same nail polish for more than a week….don’t ask me why…it’s just a “thing” that I have.

Higher End: If you are a nail polish snob and refuse to wear anything worth $1.50 from the drugstore, O.P.I has a great dupe called “A Grape Fit.”

Overall: Obsessesed with this color, can’t get enough of it! By the way, fellow bloggers and readers, this is probably the simplest you will ever see my nails. As I stated in my confessions blog, I love the bling, but being weary of scaring off my readers, I toned it down for you, but as you can see, I couldn’t resist a little accent glitter  🙂
