I got my December Julep box in the mail on Monday and I think it was my most anticipated box yet.
First of all, the December collection killed it. Not only were all of the polishes gorgeous, they also released an eyeshadow palette (which I think was limited edition) and some amazing orbital eyeshadow singles. I didn't end up getting any eyeshadows (my sister did! Here's her unboxing), however, but I did get three polishes and some dainty decals. I've linked each header to the Julep website if you want to buy them!
| Nell | $14.00, $11.20 Maven
It's described on Julep's website as "blushing holographic full coverage glitter," which made me immediately add it to my box. I automatically gravitate towards anything holographic, probably since I was obsessed with it as a little girl in the 90s, but I'd never seen a pink glitter like this. The photographs on the website don't do it much justice since the dimension and multicolor glitter is lost. I would say it could definitely be a full coverage glitter, especially with several coats, as you can see in the picture below. I'm imagining it as an accent or french tip on pink nails and completely swooning.
| Gold Decals |
I chose these because they're so cute and holiday-feeling. These would look amazing with Nell as a french tip as well, or simply on some red nail polish. I love Julep's decals since they're sturdy but so pretty. I got some black cats back in October. Plus, they also aren't the nail polish kind so you can open them and use them forever!
| Silk Effect Top Coat | $14.00, $11.20 Maven
I was so thrilled to see this as an option for this month. I've never used anything like it, but after seeing the amazing swatches online (check them out, you can see it way better), I knew I had to snatch it up. I can especially see this over a pale blue or pink or red for the holidays or literally any nail polish because it's so pretty! I tried to swatch it over a red in the shot below but it doesn't show up well on my camera.
| Rochelle | $14.00, $11.20 Maven
This is actually a present for my mom (who better not be reading this! I warned you) because she saw it online when I was selecting my picks and thought it was stunning. Julep describes it as a "boysenberry shimmer" and I think that's spot on. I never would've picked this myself since I'm a cream polish gal, but it's an amazing winter color!
How amazing are these polishes?! There's a gorgeous cobalt blue nail color called Paula with gold microshimmer that I would have loved to get but I already felt silly getting three other colors. If you'd like to read up on the eyeshadows they offer now, Miss Amelia Joy will be posting her unboxing soon!
