Julep Maven Box May 2014

For this month of May, Julep had vibrant, citrusy, fresh shades in mind.
These shades come in either beautiful shimmer or creme finish. Either one you choose, you will fall in-love with it!

I opt for the Boho Glam box this month instead of my usual Bombshell box. 
Once you've decided to join Julep's Maven subscription box, it will prompt you to answer a few beauty questions which in the end will let you know which Maven Style Profile you are: Bombshell, It Girl, Classic With a Twist, Boho or Modern Beauty. The boxes are $19.99 (+tax) a month. Before they do ship out your boxes, they will email you what's in your Maven Style Profile box and if you would like to check out the other boxes and want to switch you can do this at the given open window of days before the beginning of each month. 
Each box comes with two polishes from that month's featured theme and one beauty item that can either be a makeup product, a skincare tool or like this month their newly launched Plié Wand! Though I am used to doing my right hand now without making a mess, I would still like to improve that since I hate doing dark polishes and it's all messy! This was weird to use at first, I had to practice using it without any polish. I need to use this a bit more to say if I am more comfortable using it or back to my old ways.

The Plié Wand kit came with the plié wand & extra cap and brush.
The magnetic cap easily connects to the wand and fits in any Julep cap polishes only (remove the square cover). I do wish we can use it with any polish but every nail polish company have their own signature polish cap so this cannot be universally used with all nail polish brands. 
The kit comes with extra nail polish brush so you can use any nail polish brands and colors! The brush can easily be cleaned with acetone and be re-used with another nail polish color!
The long handle will help you control as you polish.
The wand can be ergonomically twisted for comfort.

Now onto the two polishes I chose for May!

Jet-set blue creme
I do have other powder blue color nail polish in my collection, but on my nails they would just look more white with a hint of blue and looks so thick and heavy, because they are either streaky to apply on or just have a very thick formula in them. 
In one heavy coat or two light coats of this polish, I am done and I love it!

Golden lilac tulle shimmer
This is there perfect radiant orchid shade with a beautiful golden shimmer to it! Super in-love with this shade as I am on a Radiant Orchid shade kick lately, I have been wearing the same shade on my lips actually (by mixing a few lip products ).

I am really glad to have picked the Boho Glam box for this month. I really wanted to get that Lilac polish which did not disappoint. This may be worn a lot this Summer to Fall! I have not done a nail art for so long and I cannot wait to incorporate these shades on my next one! You just have to stay tune on my Instagram (@_j4ckie_) to see the next #NOTD!
