{Neon & Nude} Julep Maven January Box

Julep Maven January I’m loving the theme of this month’s American Beauty Julep Maven box. Spring nail trends range from chic neutrals, to bright hued neons (and every eye-catching embellishment in between.) The contrasting duo is the perfect pair to add a pop of color, or soften a handful of neon.

These fun “Swatch Me” stickers a great for showing off any deceiving or sheer colors, before applying.
Julep Maven January Since switching over to Twistbands, I can never go back. The snag-free hair ties leave minimal hair kinks and keep hair damage-free. This neon colored trio is a fun way to bounce into Spring.
Julep Maven January The Hand and Cuticle Stick is a great size to throw in your handbag mess-free, unlike other cuticle oils. The rich shea butter keeps dry Winter skin moisturized.

Julep Maven

I’m really particular in making sure the foods I eat are as toxic-free as possible, but I’ve never really put much thought into the toxins that may be lurking in my nail polish. In need of a polish change, I browsed through my polishes to see which ones were toxic-free. Butter London has always been known as a 3-Free brand, so I was glad that the brand was my latest haul of shimmery holiday shades. I’ve been wanting to try out the Julep polish trio I received from the Lucky FABB conference. To my surprise, the brand is a “four-free” formulation,  free of DBP, toluene, formaldehyde, and formaldehyde resin. Each of the colors I received are apart of the Trina Turk Fall 2012 Collection. A classic red, a chartreuse and my all-time fave polish color, a trendy griege. Since I wear the other two pretty often, I decided to opt for the unique chartreuse hue. I applied one coat, and … done. It applied evenly, without any sheer spots and was fast-drying. I instantly became a fan.

I decided to join Julep’s Maven program to receive my selection of the brand’s trendy new nail colors and products monthly. It’s the perfect treat for any nail polish junkie, and it serves as a fun and unique gift! Can you believe Christmas is already next month?!

This month, I choose the American Beauty Intro Box, which comes with a classic nude, a metallic gunmetal and an essential cuticle oil.
