It's that time of the month again! Julep Maven boxes are being delivered and I got to play with my new colors last night. The March colors were inspired by a childhood favorite, sidewalk chalk. The colors are pretty pastels that are great for Spring.
I chose It Girl this month, partially because I really like Simone and Shanae, but mostly because I didn't want the Rock Star hand cream at all. I just can not stand floral scents, they just all smell gross to me. The box ended up including Simone, Shanae, and Teri, along with a Strawberry Mint lipbalm.
Simone is a lilac color with the barest hint of a blue shimmer. It's visible in the bottle, but on the nail, the shimmer dissapears. Shanae has the same shimmer, but in a pastel mint color. Teri is different from the others, only in the sense that it is not quite as pale. It is creme, coral color.
When I first opened my Maven box, I knew that I had to do something involving all the colors. Eventually, I decided on just doing diagonal stripes. First I painted my nails all in Teri, then did a line of Simone, Shanae, and painted the very tips in Teri again. To give it that complete chalk look, I added Julep's matte top coat and called it a night. Teri painted on solid in one thick coat. Simone and Shanae took two medium coats. I love the way the colors ended up looking together. Maybe next month I'll use all three again and braid them together.
To finish this post off, I thought I'd throw in my most prized piece of sidewalk art. When my mom found it in our backyard, she was annoyed. But whatever, I regret nothing!!
