Julep Maven July Box & Add-Ons :)
My July Julep box finally got here, and I am thrilled!! Shipping took forever, and I actually got my "add-ons" today at the same time (not that I am complaining about that)! I am not sure why USPS decided to hold my package in Settle for fifty years, or send my add-ons to California, but I guess it is just one of the unsolved mysteries such as how many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsiepop- the world may never know. ;)
Anyways, I am just so glad it arrived!! Here are the goods:

Even though, according to the quiz I took, I am American Beauty, I decided to switch to the It Girl box this month because of the promised seafoam green shade of Daphne. My favorite color in the world in blue, and this bright teal shade was right up my alley!! I was also so excited to paint my nails with the freebie polish Julep gave all U.S. Mavens- America!

My July It Girl box was filled with America in all it's red, white, blue & silver star glitter glory, Mila- a silver glitter with teal, orange, purple and green sparkles just to name a few, Kate- a pearly white, and Daphne- which is not seafoam green :( but instead a darker teal color.
I have to say I love these polishes, but am let down by Daphne! It does not look anything like the swatches :( I emailed Julep today about it as they advised anyone not digging the darker color to do on their Facebook page so we will see what their wonderful, and I mean wonderful CS team says :) My box was also filled with red, white and blue little paper decorations, Fireball candies, and wrapped in star paper with a red ribbon- very festive! I even got a voucher for a free polish!!
My add-ons are Frieda- a shimmery fuschia which happens to share the name of one of my alma maters' mascots :) , and Chelsea a brilliant purple glitter with teal and silver sparkles

|Frieda and Chelsea- so sorry for the glare (this was even without a flash ). My add-ons I got for 4.99 each.|
|I know this is a weird picture, but I was hoping you could see the three stars on my thumb :)|
Although I was sad not to get America in time for the 4th, I am excited to rock it while watching the Olympics! It is just beautiful on my nails and mine has so many stars! I saw some horror stories about it being impossible to apply, but luckily I guess I got a good one because it went on nicely.
I am so excited to try the rest of my polishes, and there will be more swatches to come once I decide to take America off. I also have an American Beauty box on it's way- I couldn't resist! It will be coming with Oh Canada, a lip gloss I am stoked to try as well as Lynn and Yumi. I took Canadian Studies in college and met my best friend there so have a strange love for the country hehe.
So, I might just be obsessed with Julep now, let's be honest :/ If you would like to try it out for a penny simply click here if you would be so kind: http://julep.com/?r=21739311
