Nail Files + February Julep Box

Feb 1, 2013


I tried two new polishes this week but am saving the other for next Friday!

This week's is one from Milani's Neon line - Fresh Teal. This color is an interesting one.

First, the bottle is "wrapped" in plastic so it's not see through to the polish inside. Weird.
Second, the nail color does not photograph well. AT ALL.
It paints on like a teal but in every type of lighting I tried, it shows up as a blue-ish turquoise.
I just googled swatches and people complained about the same thing. So weird!

This picture was taken about 3 days after I painted them which is why my nail tips are chipped but really it's a pretty decent brand and I LOVE the color! I want to try the rest of their neon line!



Yesterday I received my February Maven Box from Julep!
I went with the "Classic With A Twist" box and received:

 --Claudette - a "smokey brick red creme"
--Helen - a "smoky pastel lavender creme"
--Oxygen Nail Treatment 
--Freedom Polymer Top Coat.

I cannot wait to try these bad boys!! 

They also threw in a little eyelash curler (that works really well, I might add) 
and a couple of little heart chocolates. No idea where those went ;)


I'd say this was a pretty sweet deal for $19.99!

If you want to jump on the Julep bandwagon, sign up here!
Do what I did and try their Intro box for just a penny. For real. The code is PENNY.

Happy Friday AND oh - my - gah Happy February!!
(a.k.a. the month my baby turns 1. Oh lord. Pass me the tissues.)

oh, and my husband already ate my chocolates from the Julep box. He didn't even offer them to the kids! LOL.

I always think about getting the penny box, but then I'll just be mad when I have to cancel.

Hi Jessica,
Found you through the Nail Files link up. I ordered the same Maven Box and I'm wearing "Helen" today. What do you think of the colors? I thought Helen would be a tad darker, but its still cute. I can't wait to try on Claudette!

Happy Friday,
Kali
