For this post, I want to show you guys what I got in my October 2014 Julep Maven box! I went with the It Girl box this month because the product on offer were two different colors of lip gloss and...I don't need any more lip gloss. Ever. Because I am stubborn and am still a "classic" Maven, I pay $19.99 a month for an uncustomizable box, instead of the $24.99 for the customizable one. I just can't bring myself to pay the extra $5 for an already fairly pricey, nail polish-centric subscription box.
For October, Julep came out with the Black Magic collection! All the polishes in this collection, with the exception of the white one, are on the darker, smokier side. I know I always talk about how I'm really not into dark nail polishes and that I think they make my hands look old, but ever since my husband commented that he likes the darker polish look, I've been more open to wearing them. I'm still not 100% sold on them, again because I think they make my hands look old and because I'm kind of bad at applying polish, but as long as I keep my nails shorter, I think it works.
Overall, I'm happy with the colors I got; the only other colors I would have wanted are Nancy (Bombshell), a really pretty metallic silver sage and Tia (BohoGlam, but only available as an add-on), a black jelly with gold and copper glitter.
Thanks for reading! <3
