Well... I watched the mail like a hawk for about a week. I knew it should be coming but the anticipation was KILLING ME! I do love surprises but seriously it was getting close to tortuous levels after a week or two! My agony was finally alleviated when I checked the mail the yesterday...
|My awesome Spring Mystery box!|
|Polish L to R: Melissa, Hayden, Fast Dry topcoat, Anne|
Last night I tried the fast dry topcoat and while it is definitely not a substitute for my fave, Seche Vite, it did dry quickly with a lovely shiny surface. Since that worked out pretty well I figured why not give Melissa a test run too. I will start with this, it is not a color to wear alone unless you want a verrrrrry sheer shimmer but it IS an awesome effect color. Meaning it is sheer enough to layer it on top of another color to add a lovely creamy shimmer to. Of course I removed the polish before taking a photo because I'm a total dunce like that but I promise to use Melissa as a top layer again soon and post pics so you can see what I mean.
All in all it was a great box! I loved what I received and am truly happy with my new mani additions. Total retail value of my box: $130 (gift certificate, 4 polishes and 1 bottle of Elixir)!! Not too shabby for $20! That means I'm up $110 worth of products I really like! How awesome is that?!
At this point I would definitely recommend giving Julep Maven a try. You can follow this LINK to start your Julep Maven subscription today!
