Julep Valentines Mystery Box! Ft. Julep Shania

Hi all!  I was so excited to open this box from Julep, you have no idea!  The idea behind this box is that is was a mystery pick, you could get anywhere from $60 - $300 dollars worth of stuff.  I did my math, and this box equals more than $200 worth of product!!  Holy shit!!  I'm sorry to say this deal isn't available anymore.....

In my box is included, clockwise: Julep's Cuticle Oil (yay for backups!), Fast Dry Topcoat, Topcoat for Hair, Julep's Reveal Nail Growth Revitalizing Serum, a small tube of Julep's Age Defying Hand Brightener, and then 7 polishes in Stella, Helena, Anne, Demi, January and Gwyneth, then Julep's lipgloss they now call Pout Popper in Arousal (you all know how I feel about these glosses......I will try it though).  I already own Helena and Anne (two of my favorite Julep colors!) so I haven't decided if I'm going to keep those yet.

I am super excited about the Reveal Nail Growth Revitalizing Serum.  That product alone is about $30!  I might do a before and after post.  The product claims to "Say goodbye to short, weak, peeling nails.  Cutting edge peptides help to stimulate keratin genes and cell proliferation to boost nail development.  Lemon fruit and green tea leaf extracts condition and strengthen nails".  Now, granted, my nails don't look like the ones they show on their page, but I am down to try anything that will help my weak nails.  Without polish, my nails are uber weak.  Now the one thing I am really skeptical on is, it says you should see a noticeable difference in as little as 2-3 weeks.  I find that hard to believe since it takes 6 months for your nails to grow all the way we will see!

So the first color I chose to wear was Shania.  It's a lovely shade of gray, which almost looks like a light blue in certain lights.  It's a wee bit frosty, which I know a lot of people aren't fond of, but I quite liked it.  It has such a delicate look about it.

The color kinda reminds me of a cross between Zoya's Harley and Dove.

Well I hope you all are having a fabulous week!  I hope to get a dupe post up soon!  So look forward to that!

  3. The color is beautiful on you!

  4. Oh you got a great box!!! I saw other people got boxes that looked like any other month. I'm interested to see your results with the nail growth serum. I used up mine, I thought it was helping but after about 4 weeks of use my nails started to break and peel again.

  5. Now I wish I bought the mystery box - such a cool haul! I love, love, love Shania. Really sweet colour, especially for winter!


  7. You're SO lucky!!!! I hope I get a similar box to you!!!!

  8. I am new to Julep and just ordered the Summer Days Mystery Box. I can not wait to see what is in it. I love your nails - so pretty!
