Welcome to another Monday Funday with Katie! I’m in full on vacation mode and I’m loving all of the polishes I chose from Julep’s Sail Into Summer collection!
I loved Nan, and I’m loving Kennedy too! In addition to the It Girl box I chose Kennedy and Bunny as add-ons – SO worth it.
Kennedy is described as a khaki creme. When I first opened the box, I was a little disappointed in Kennedy. It’s a bit more yellow than I was expecting. I’d envisioned something closer to Essie’s Sand Tropez, but since then it’s really grown on me and I love the color. It looks great with a tan and makes me feel very classy – as I usually feel when I wear more neutral shades.
The application was really awesome – I used two coats and they were smooth and easy – great formula on this one. Two thumbs up.
What do you think? Check below for another picture or two and to see what book I’ll be reading next!

As I said in my unboxing post for Julep’s November Maven Box, I was thrilled to see that Julep was going to try their hand at Suede finish polishes. I love my OPI Suedes – they’re perfect in a pinch since they dry so quickly! I was so excited that I even ordered an add-on […] Continue reading →
As I mentioned in my post over on The Daily Varnish Extra about Julep‘s October box, I was thrilled when they offered a Maven’s Choice box as an alternative to the boxes with crackles. Truthfully, I can’t imagine why anyone would choose a box with crackle in it, but to each her own (with a […] Continue reading →

While Penelope may have been my perfect pale pink, Jessica may be my new favorite baby blue! I received Jessica in my April Julep Maven: It Girl box. This is a super pigmented baby blue creme that is a potential one coater if you’re careful (yes, really!)The best part is that unlike many light blues […] Continue reading →
Have I found my perfect pale pink? Yes! Penelope is the type of color I’ve tried to find or buy, only to be disappointed by the sheer-ness of it. I’m seriously in love. Penelope came in my April Julep Maven Box along with Jessica and Niecy. Julep describes it as “Opaque, almost white with […] Continue reading →
