April Julep Maven 2013

Hooray! My April Julep Maven box arrived early this month. For this months style I switched from my usual bombshell box to the boho glam style because I love blue and orange!

This months collection is all about brights! I loved the collection photos. Julep has also added a new maven style called the modern maven. This box doesn't include polish but has extra products. They released a nail strengthening serum and also a dry shampoo!

My boho glam box was stuffed with goodies!

This box included Julep Lena, Julep Kaylen, the new Mighty Nail & Cuticle Serum and rock candy!!!

Julep Lena is a teal blue filled with gold shimmer that really comes to life in sunlight. The formula was great on this one and the coverage is veryyyyy nice! I used two coats but its almost a one coater. However, warning on this one...staining alert! When I removed this polish my cuticles were dyed green! I don't even want to think of what might happen I didn't use a base coat. Base coat is a necessity with this polish!

Julep Kaylen is described on as a neon orange creme. The neon pigment is very bright! But, I was slightly let down when I was it wasn't much of a creme. Even with three coats you can still see the visible nail line. This polish dries to a rubbery finish because of the neon. The formula is interesting. I can' of any other polish like this but the sheerness does kinda bother me. I'm on the fence about this one!

The product in this month is Juleps Mighty Nail & Cuticle Serum.  Julep suggests you apply their serum everyday on the naked nail or cuticles for two weeks to strengthen them and help prevent peeling.  I can't wait to see how it works.  Full review of this in a few days after I get to see it's effects!

  1. I love Lena, it looks like it has gold shimmer in it? Really pretty :) However, staining is a huge NO NO for me... But great color, and it suits you so well! :)

  2. Btw, maybe you can us the orange one as a jelly polish?
