My July Julep Maven Box finally arrived. Apparently it’s taking longer to ship to Canada now because they can’t air ship. It appears to have left the US on July 1 and it arrived on July 17. It’s way longer than it takes in the US, but I guess nail polish isn’t a necessity, so waiting a bit longer isn’t going to kill me.
This month’s collection is called the Poolside Collection. I really love this collection, the colours are bright, and mostly consisted of creme finishes. I splurged and picked up the whole polish collection this time around. The past few months’ collections had a lot of different finishes, but cremes are my favourite.
The colours are called:
Tamara – Lipstick Red Creme (it’s a tomato-y looking shade)
Lorenzana – Shitake Creme
Lissa – Tumbled Turquoise Creme
Beverly – Boysenberry Creme (medium dark violet shade)
Kelsey – Powder Peach Creme
Vicki – Pink Flamingo Creme
Braiden – Graphite Stardust (Textured Matte Glitter)
Linden – Pool Blue Creme
Dawn – Citron Creme
Most of the descriptions are very close to how I would describe each colour, but I’ve added extra descriptive words to those colours that I thought I could better describe.
I can’t remember how much this upgrade box cost, but I’m really happy with the colours. I went with the polish lovers upgrade, but the program has gotten more complex so there are a couple of upgrade options now.
