So, no beating around the bush… I have a pretty boring polish to show you today. I’m not even going to try and be excited about this one because I’m not really. Julep Kelly is a pale blush cream…yup thats it lol. The first time I bought any Julep was when I found an awesome deal on Groupon…or Living Social (one of the two) probably back in November. I think Julep has good quality polishes, but they’re over priced and nothing really special. I did get suckered into their Spring Mystery Box for $19.99 last month. I figured why not give it a try since one polish alone is $14, so I might as well play my cards here and hope to atleast like something in the box. Well, here is what I got:
My Julep box contained cuticle oil, clear top coat, Gayle, Melissa, Kelly and some (not so yummy) chocolates.
I know I’m really late with posting about my box, but I was pretty disappointed in the colors and wasnt even going to bother. Then I had a swatch of Kelly in my drafts so I figured why not post the whole box with it.
The best part about the box was the cuticle oil and top coat in my opinion. I was very let down on the colors I received. I figured for a “Spring” box I would receive much brighter colors…not an eggplant color like Gayle. Not a fan of Melissa either..I like the look of pearlescent colors in bottles, but on the nail they don’t really work out all that well. Plus it looks like they reused Melissa from their previous St Patty’s Day boxes.
Soooo…here is the one polish I wasn’t completely annoyed at…Kelly.
I might try another Julep Mystery Box sometime in the far future…but for now I think I have my fill of Julep.
Anyone else buy into the Mystery Box? What did you get in yours??
