Feburary Julep Maven Box ft. Julep's Marisa

Hi my peeps!  I know I says something earlier about sporadic posts, but hey, I have time now before I head back to work to post my Julep Maven box I just received.

I know there are some mixed reviews about Julep, but I happen to love them.  I have yet to have any issue with them, and have contacted them a couple times due to some concerns, and have never gotten anything but stellar customer service from them.  I will continue to recommend their program.


So here is my box.  Julep is celebrating the Oscars with this box.  Included in all the boxes this month they are including their new glitter in Oscar.  I also received the lovely navy shade named Marisa.  They also included another of the cuticle oil, which I love, and in celebration of the Oscar's they included a cute little chocolate replica.


I'm wearing the shade Marisa today.  I realized as I started to apply this color last night, I *just* wore this color not to long ago.  This is pretty much a dupe of a mani I wore last month seen here.  I will have a dupe post up pretty soon.


In the bottle, it looks like there is some purple duochrome to this polish, but sadly, doesn't come out on the nail.  I found the formula on this pretty thick, and will need to add some thinner to it in the future.  I also notice this am, that there is also some bald spots on some of my nails which I find odd considering how thick the formula was.  Just something to note, I had no issues with the formula, but thought it was something to mention.


You can really seen the teal shimmer in this color in the above photo.  I really happen to love this color (as I did the Essence dupe as well), but I am not looking forward to the removal....talk about smurf fingers!!
