October Julep Box Review

Hey! I'm so excited for this post. This very well may be my favorite Julep box ever! Warning! This post has lots of pictures! I selected the It Girl box because the colors were all so beautiful. The It Girl box always comes with 3 polishes. So, to feed my addiction, I usually choose It Girl.

 Yay! From left to right: 
Missy - Titanium Metallic
Ciara - Vampy Magenta With Teal Microglitter
Kendra - Army Green Frost
Casper - Glow-In-The-Dark Shimmer
I loved the card that read 'Don't Ask Permission' -Joan Jett (lets face it, she is amazing!). The candy corn is also great because I am a candy corn addict. (How did they know!?) I have hidden my candy corn out of the reach of my crazy children! Hehe!...To the polishes!

First I tried Missy...

I absolutely love this! It is such a beautiful silver, it went on evenly & dried super fast. This is a great polish for sure, except for when I woke up in the morning to see a couple chips :(  
So this isn't the long lasting type (like the suedes) but it is a great choice for something short term. It is stunningly beautiful, it just doesn't last as long as I had hoped. 

Next I tried Kendra...

This is such an amazing forest green! It was super smooth to apply & this will be such a beautiful Christmas color! It makes me think of a frosty wreathe! I can't wait to wear this longer! It is a keeper for sure!

The last in my It Girl box was Ciara....

I have to say this is the most astonishing Julep polish I have ever seen! That is saying a lot because I have lots of amazing ones! Ciara has the microglitter which makes it almost impossible to describe or take photos of but I can tell you, it felt like a sin to remove it. I wanted to cry! lol It has the magenta in it but depending on the light & angles, it shines purple or teal & the teal can take on a greenish to a bluish tint. The only way I can describe it is by comparing it to an a-England polish which is saying a lot. If you have any desire to get this polish but are at all hesitant, just get it & I can guarantee you will love it! 

Now for Casper...

This is a sheer shimmer so it can be used over just about any polish & not only make it beautiful, but it will also make it glow in the dark! Eeek! My inner kid LOVES anything glow in the dark & this makes 8(?) glow in the dark polishes I have. This is in my top 2 favorites & only because I sometimes like a fully clear glow in the dark polish. I love Casper though. In the photos I have 3 coats on. It isn't completely opaque but it is dern close! 

Okay, so my camera hates that I wanted to take glow in the dark pictures but I still did it! Just ignore the blurriness. Casper glows a bright green & really makes me think of Halloween! Probably my favorite holiday! 

And then I started playing! Beware! Total awesomeness ahead!...

I had a bright idea & decided to add Glitter Gal - Light As A Feather on top of Casper & BAM! Look at that crazy awesome color! This turned out so beautiful I absolutely kept it on! It is totally drool-worthy!
