Julep – Monaco

Julep - MonacoYes, I realize that it’s St. Patrick’s Day and that everyone else in nail polish land is probably showing off delightful green manicures today, but St. Patrick’s Day just isn’t my thing. What is my thing? Duke Basketball. SO yesterday, I was – of course – watching the ACC Championship game between Duke and UVA. After a pretty slow start, I decided that painting my nails blue would give Duke a little extra boost in the second half. Yes, I have magical long distance game influencing nails. They just didn’t happen to work this time…

I actually didn’t mean to get the March Julep Maven Box. I intended to skip March altogether, but when I got around to opening the box yesterday, I’m glad I didn’t. Seriously, how pretty is Monaco? Julep describes it as a “dazzling mariner blue crème.” It’s a great fit for Spring, representing Dazzling Blue from Pantone’s 2014 Spring Color Report. Well done, Julep! I so rarely wear shades in this range, but I really should. Monaco applied very nicely, even and opaque with three coats. I can’t wait to try Lilou.

Julep polishes are available at Sephora, but the monthly subscription service is a much more affordable way to get Julep polishes. To get your first month free use the code FREEBOX! Check below for swatches!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Julep Suede – Brit

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 →

Julep – Lisa

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 →

Julep – Jessica

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 →

Julep – Penelope

  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 →
