December Julep Maven Box

Hello everyone! Sorry this post is running a little late, but here is this months Julep Maven Box.  This month I decide to go with the It Girl box.  The colors were super pretty and I just had to have the sapphire blue one.

Vivien, Ivy, & Harper


First up is Vivien.  Vivien is a gold color filled with fine and large glitter.  Vivien can be worn all on its own but I put it over a colored base.  Even with two coats of Vivien the base coat is still very strong so I may still suggest using a base just to save on coats.  Me personally, I don't care for this one.  I am also not a gold lover so I am a little bias.

Again this was two coats of the gold! 

The larger glitter seemed to bunch together.

Eh, not my favorite for sure.

Now after the gold hating, I am going to show much love to the next two.  They are both right when it comes to my taste.  First I am going to show you Ivy.  Ivy is the sapphire one that Julep was talking about.   What they left out is that it is totally purple at certain angles.  I love it!  The polish is very unique.  The shift in color is so subtle and not over powering like other brands.

Only two coats and pretty good coverage.  

I love this color!

You can see here how the top parts have a purple color to them.

Lastly is Harper.  Harper is a teal base filled with various iridescent, teal, and gold glitter.  Application on this one was near perfect.  I did use three coats but the end results were a mermaid's dream!

Great glitter coverage!



All in all I was pretty pleased with this months box.  The added bonus this month was a super cool make your own nail polish ring.  As soon as I saw that I had to play and fell in love with it!  Such a great way to add a little personalization to ones style.  Thanks for stopping by this evening and look forward to seeing you guys again real soon.
