Julep Maven Box: August 2012

Hello everybody! I hope you all are having a fabulous Sunday!  Are any of y'all obsessed with the Olympics like I am!  My TV hasn't changed channels since the Opening Ceremony!

Anyway, I got my Julep Maven box last week and I wanted to show you guys what I got!  This month's theme was about all about metallic and chrome polishes.  I've begin to notice that this trend is becoming very popular in the nail world.  I wasn't too excited about the polishes this month, but I ended up getting a free box because two people signed up with my referral link. (Thanks ladies)

Maven Box haul!!!  This month I decided to stay with my profile, American Beauty, and got a small bag as a freebie, non-acetone nail polish remover, and three polishes:  Stefani, Dakota, and Piper (add-on)!

This month was the Maven Program's first birthday! Happy Birthday Julep!!!!
The tote bag is a lot smaller that I thought it would be, but hey it was free so I can't complain.

First I'm going to show y'all the product that came in this month's box.

This is Julep's Acetone Free conditioning nail polish remover.  I was really excited to try this out and let me tell you, it did not disappoint!  I did have a hard time trying to figure out how to use it, I'm not used to products that dispense like this, but I did get the hang of it after awhile.  The remover takes off polish with ease and I didn't have any major problems with taking off glitter polishes, although I do prefer pure acetone over Julep's polish remover to take off glitter polish.

 The first color that I got this month is Stefani, a metallic grey with small gold flecks.

Sorry for the blurry image.  The application was very smooth and I had no problems with streaking.  It's not a color that I would buy on my own but it's an okay color. I'll definitely have to be in a dark colors mood to pick this one up and wear it.  (2 coats)

 The next color I got is Dakota, a beautiful rose gold polish.

This was the color that I was most excited about!!!  The application was great and I didn't have many brush stroke lines.  My polish did bubble a bit, but that was my fault. (2 coats)

The last polish that I got was Piper, a metallic minty-teal color. 

This. Color. Is. Gorgeous!!!  I wasn't planning on getting any add-ons, but once I saw this color I knew that I had to have it!  The application was okay, definitely the worst out of the three.  The polish is a bit sheer, you can see my nail line in the photo above.  I also had some streaking problems with Piper.  (3 coats)

So that is all that I got in my Maven box this month.  Did you get a box?  Which profile did you pick?  Let me know in the comments below.
