Look what arrived in the mail for me yesterday. My January Julep Maven "Classic with a Twist" box. I am usually an "It Girl" but I switched this month. At first, I wasn't even going to order a box this month because I wasn't too thrilled with the idea of neon shades in winter. I decided I wanted to at least try the cuticle stick, so I went ahead and ordered a box.
Here's what was inside:
This cuticle stick is huge, and will probably last forever.
Julep also started a new packaging idea of using stickers on the tops of the bottles so you can do a quick swatch that's easily visible when you have your bottles lined up in a box or a drawer. I think this is a good idea.
Check out these extras they sent. Neon pony tail holders.
This month's colors:
Here's what "Grace" looks like on the nail. Three coats.
And here's what "Madison" looks like on the nail. Three coats. It's more pink in person than in looks like in my photos.
Since Julep sent me the extra swatch stickers, I used them on some of my stash. They only sent 20 extra labels, and as you can see, I didn't have nearly enough. I did see that they are sold as an add on to the boxes, so I will get an extra sheet later on so I can finish swatching my whole Julep collection.
So what do you think of this month's box? What did you get in yours?
