January Julep Box - It Girl

Hey everyone, this is going to be my last Julep box for awhile because I'm out of points for free boxes. :( As always, it was packaged very nicely, and there was a happy surprise in there with my polishes - hair ties!


I saw these first on Lace & Lacquers. I tried them out and really love the way they look. The colors are so bright, I feel like I'll have to hold off on wearing them until summer gets here. I did try them out at the gym though, and am sad to say that although they are cute, the didn't hold my hair up at all.Oh well.

Anyway, on to the polishes. The first one I tried out is called Nina, She looks just like orange sorbet, and is by far my favorite of the bunch. It went on nice and creamy and has a nice smooth finish.


Next is Nikki. This color is supposed to be a neon yellow, but it's very muddy looking, so I felt like it looked more mustard on me. I layered it over Pure Ice Superstar!, to try to bring out it's neon brightness, but it just didn't happen. It went on very streaky, too, which drove me nuts. So sad. :(


Last, is a very soft nude color called Amelia. This is a great neutral for a job interview or something where you can't have flashy nails. Other than that, I will probably never wear it because it's just not fun enough. Take a look.


So there you have it. This is probably my least favorite box by far. I will try to keep the nail art coming over the next few weeks, but the semester has just started and it's gonna be a doozy. Wish me luck!
