July Julep Maven "It Girl" Box

Mila, Kate, Daphne, and America-The Beautiful

So, I'm a little late with this (I actually got my box in the mail last Saturday), but better late than never! I absolutely love Julep and my July "It Girl" Box definitely did not disappoint. This month I received 4 bottles of polish and two of them are beautiful glitters (I love using glitters on my accent nails and for my little girls). Here are the details on the 4 polishes I received this month:

From left to right in the picture above:

Mila: A Charcoal, Multi Colored Glitter

Kate: A Soft, White Pearl

Daphne: Fresh, Seafoam Green Creme

America-The Beautiful:  A Shiny Red, with Royal Blue Glitter and Sterling Silver Stars

I'm really into everything nail related lately! I love all the nail trends (nudes, metallics, neons, pastels, and glitters) and I've even been trying my hand (ha!) in nail art (I've pretty much mastered polka dots, now I'm working on stripes, etc.). 

This post is actually the first in a series (I don't have a name for it yet, but I'm thinking Mani Madness... I'll get back to you on that though) about all things nails. I already have posts planned about some great drugstore brand options (like Sally Hansen and Rimmel London) and even Avon (hey, don't sleep on Avon!), not to mention OPI, Essie, China Glaze, and Zoya. There's so much out there in the world of nail care; it's hard to keep up, but it sure is fun trying!

Are you a Julep Maven? In my opinion, it is TOTALLY worth the $19.99 a month! Here's a link if you'd like to sign up:  HTTP://JULEP.COM/?R=18536523 (If you choose to sign up through this link, I do earn a credit towards a free month, just so you know). 

What nail trends are you digging? Are you a do it yourself girl, or do you hit up the salon for your mani/pedis? What's your favorite nail polish brand right now? My inquiring mind wants to know! Leave a comment below and let me know what you think. Until next time...

Ciao, XxO 



  1. Quinn,

    It looks like you have been a Julep Maven for quite sometime! Do you have a favorite color?

    1. Hi Alexandria!

      I've actually been a very enthusiastic, happy "It Girl" Maven since January or February. One of my fave Julep colors is Leah. It is such a unique color; Leah was in my very 1st Julep Maven box and when I saw it, I knew that the style quiz was right on AND this was the subscription service for a polish lover like me. It's such a beautifully unique shade of kelly green with the slightest hint of mellow silver shimmer, not enough for it to glint just enough to give it quirk and dimension. I had never seen a nail polish like it and I still haven't! I had to take the polish I had on my nails already off immediately and put Leah on. That was quite a few months ago, and even though I don't repeat colors often, Leah is in regular rotation...

  2. Quinn,

    I am glad to hear it. I will definitely make sure to check back frequently and watch for more Julep posts. I am glad you love the colors. Your blog is great!!
