October Julep Maven Unboxing ♡

I got my October Julep box recently and I'm so excited! I absolutely adore every bit of it. I picked out Estelle, Dana, cat decals, and as an add-on I chose white chevrons. This box was $24.99 and the add-on was only supposed to be a few dollars but I redeemed some of my points. I decided to take these shots in the leaves since I love fall and it makes them feel more festive. The leaves are actually why the reflective sticker looks gold-colored instead of being silver like it usually is. Yay for pretty trees and let's get into it!

| White Chevron Nail Decals |
I haven't gotten any decals from Julep before so I wasn't sure what to expect. I really love these! I'm thrilled to use them for an accent nail. They are definitely a little raised so I'm not sure if I'll be able to get a top coat to smooth it out or not.

| Black Cat Nail Decals |
These are absolutely adorable! They're pretty small and neither these or the chevrons have a clear border around them or anything. They're actual stickers which is nice since the ones made out of nail polish can't really be resealed. I'll be sure to Instagram pictures (@hannahvanhoozle) of both nail decals when I use them!
It looks like these aren't being sold on Julep's website yet so I'll try to link these when I can.
| Julep Estelle | $11.20 (Maven price)
I'm obsessed. This is a black nail polish with lovely holographic glitter and small, black glitter as well. I love anything holographic so naturally I was drawn to this and couldn't handle waiting for it to come. This is more sheer than I expected, but I used it the other day (you can my nails in some of these pictures) and I had to do two heavier coats to get full coverage. However, since it's dominantly glitter, I was pleased to see it still dried fast. I used my Seche Vite for a top coat and it couldn't quite smooth out the glitter completely so I may have to do two coats of that next time.

| Julep Dana | $11.20 (Maven price)
Dana is a creamy white with electric blue shimmer that reacts in black light. This girl is impressively opaque! I wasn't sure what to expect, but two coats gives full coverage which can be hard to find with a white polish. Unfortunately the blue isn't as obvious once it's on nails. However, it does allow this white polish to look less chalky like some whites can and you can see it in the sun or natural light. I haven't tried out the "black light reactive" aspect yet. In the pictures online it looks like it glows really well so I'm excited!

That's everything I got this month, except for the bonus candy corn. I've already worn both of the nail polishes and I'm going to be trying out the chevrons and cats soon!
Here's a link to the free fall-themed welcome box (limited time!) and also the Julep website.
