My February Julep Maven Box
This month's Julep Maven box featured their newly launched Oxygen Nail Treatment. I decided to chose the "Classic With a Twist" box since I liked the colors the best. The box was all about the glamour and the upcoming Academy Awards with gold tinsel but also featured delicious Valentine's Day heart chocolates.
- Oxygen Nail Treatment $18
- Freedom Polymer Top Coat $18
- Eyelash Curler
- Extras: chocolates
Helen was inspired by Helen Hunt in The Sessions and is described as a "smoky pastel lavender." I absolutely loved this color! It reminded me a lot of Ginger + Liz's "He's So Into You" but I could always use another lavender color.
Claudette was inspired by Claudette Colbert who won an Academy Award for It Happened One Night and is described as a "smoky brick red creme." I'm not usually a fan of red nail polish so I was pleasantly surprised how much I loved this color. Stay tuned later this week for a surprise!
This Polymer top coat was intriguing as well. It had a SUPER strong smell that was almost unbearable but it left my nails shiny... just the way I like them. After a few days, there's just been one small chip on my thumb so I'm liking it.
I also added on their Quick Dry Polish Drops for this month's box (but it ships separately).
