Julep Maven – May 2014 Box Review

I had not “taken” my Maven box in quite a long time, but May’s colors really spoke to me. Per usual, the colors I liked most were not offered in combination, so I ended up getting the Boho Glam box (Paulette, Jeanne, and the Plie Wand) and adding on Ramona.

May Julep 2I’m absolutely obsessed with Paulette. It reminds me of the Pantone 2014 Color of the Year – Radiant Orchid – and it’s a great formula as well. Easy to apply, looks great, and lasts a long time. Ramona, while beautiful, was extremely gloopy and difficult to work with. As I mentioned in my MOTW post, I’m thinking I need to get a bottle of polish thinner and just thin it out a bit. I haven’t used Jeanne yet but it’s a very pretty pastel blue that will make for a great summer mani – maybe in combination with a bright orange?

As for the Plie Wand – which you might think was the greatest thing ever invented judging by the hoopla surrounding it – I’m not quite comfortable with it yet, but I appreciate the thought behind it.

The colors that I’m really eyeing now are some of the birthstone ones that have come out – Betty, Rosa, and Priscilla are especially gorgeous. I’m hoping that Julep will release some sort of special, buy the whole birthstone collection promo at the end of the year. That would definitely be worth hoarding some Jules for…!
