An Unboxing with a Twist! London Models My March Julep It Girl Box!

The inspiration for this month's Julep color selections was "Get ready to play!" With just about everyone longing for the warm, bright welcome of Spring, I think it's a super fitting theme!

I'm not gonna lie, I just wasn't in the mood to swatch, but I really do adore the fresh, pastel colors that arrived in my It Girl box, so I thought why not enlist one of my girls to help with the task?

I received 3 polishes (Shenae, Simone, and Teri) and an adorable Strawberry Mint Lip Balm. 

Shenae is described as a pastel mint green opalescent shimmer. The pearl finish is more apparent in the bottle than on the nail, but it is still present. After applying 3 coats for full opacity, it comes off a bit more sky blue in person, but you can definitely detect hints of mint green (especially in these photos). 

Simone is described as a soft pastel lilac opalescent shimmer. Like with Shenae, the opalescent shimmer is more obvious in the bottle, but you can still see a bit of it on the nail. I think that if you are pleased with a more sheer finish and stop at one or two coats, the shimmer with be more apparent. I used 3 coats of this one as well in order to reach full opacity. It's a gorgeous lilac, with hints of pink-super girly and feminine.

Teri is described as a tropical coral pink crème. In the bottle and on the nail, the polish is definitely a pretty coral shade, but I don't really see a hint of pink. It skews more orange/peach in my opinion. But it is absolutely gorgeous and will look so great on tan toes. Thank goodness open toe shoe season is upon us!
