July Julep It Girl Box

Look at me, actually posting my July swatches in July. Wow, it's amazing what I can get done when I am not over my head with two different challenges going on at once! I love getting things in the mail, especially when it is nailpolish! When this one came, I was so excited to be getting 4 polishes instead of the usual three. I cashed in some Jules for an add-on and got more swatching stickers, too.







I'm starting with the blue polish called Linden, because it just happens to be the first one I wore. It is a perfect pool blue cream. It only took two thin coats, and went on nice and smooth. Sorry for the poor photo quality. It was late, and I had too much caffeine. That means I was shaking like crazy.

Next, we have my least favorite of the bunch, Dawn. I have a rough time with yellows. I wouldn't have bought this color on it's own, but since I couldn't live without Linden and the next polish I'm about to show you, it is now a part of my collection. It's not bad, but yellows just have the worst formula. I will say that this one was not as bad as most, though.

The last polish in this It Girl set is Braiden, another one of the Stardust finish polishes that I adore. Sparkly-matte goodness in a bottle. :)

Last, we have Lissa. This is my add-on. When I saw it, I had to have it. I have such a weakness for teal, and it is a great summer color.It's perfect - this is two coats.

I did some nail art with these colors since they all looked so good together. It turned out pretty good - simple art with dots is always good. :)


Yay! Now that my swatching for the month is out of the way, you will get some nail art!
