Confessions of a Nail Polish Junkie

Below are juts a few nail polish shots that I’ve taken pretty much since I have my iPhone…

                                                        Essie St. Lucia Lilac

Brucci Sheri’s Pistachio Creme

What I really wanted was Essie Mint Candy Apple, but at the time they were SOLD OUT everywhere, I was so sad. Then my coworker showed me this shade which we had on the shelf at the store, so I bought it. It goes on great, with great coverage- I recommend, especially if you don’t want to spend Essie’s prices.

Essie Bikini So Teeny

Essie Bobbing for Baubles

OPI Ski Teal We Drop

Julep Molly

I was always an Essie girl… til I found out about Julep (I still adore Essie, just adding Julep to the list ! ) The color goes on fabulously and lasts longer than my usual polish.

Julep Annette

OPI Alpine Snow

White nail polish has been my signature since I started wearing it everyday in 2008. My boss at my old job always joked with me that it looked like white out! Its am AMAZING color for any season. It’s so bright and looks great with any outfit!
I started out wearing Milani’s ‘Whitest White’ and went through about 3 or 4 bottles (told ya I was obsessed!) So if you’re looking for a cheaper option I recommend Milani!

Essie Play Date

Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear ‘Coral Reef’

Not as neon as it appears in the picture.

Julep Bea

I think this is one of, if not the TOP nail polish I own! I’ve been searching for the perfect yellow, it had to be very light -so my nails didn’t look funky.. When I got the email about that months Julep Maven Box and I saw there was a light yellow I picked it SO quick! I went on amazingly! HIghly recommend if you need a different summer color!

Julep Sylvia

Julep Cleopatra

My newest Julep addition.. Got it as an add on to my November Maven Box.

I’ve gotten matte polishes before and never really liked them, but this .. Oh boy! I’m in love! I was actually debating whether or not to add clear polish on top but when I ut it on I couldn’t stop looking at the matte finish! It looks like satin.. Perfect, especially since yesterday was Halloween! I will definitely be wearing this color a lot ! 


If you’ve never heard of Julep before, I highly suggest trying a polish or two.. or three 😉

You can get your first box for free by clicking HERE  and entering FREEBOX as a promo code (link is also on my left side bar)

After filling out your beauty profile (which you can change if you don’t like what you get) you pick your box- you can add on extra polishes or beauty items for a discounted price.

Each month you will get an email showing what you will get in that months box- YOU CAN DECLINE (which I think is awesome!) if you do not want that months box and you won’t get charged ! You can also pick a different box if you don’t like what yours has to offer! Or you can send your box to a friend! 

At the beginning of each month a “secret store” opens up, which only Maven’s have access to. It offers discounted polishes and polish combo packs (which would be a great gift for the holidays!) 

Let me know which polish is you favorite and if you signed up!!

Thanks so much for reading!
