Julep Maven, sign up for $.01!

I was browsing on Twitter and discovered a company called Julep Maven that is all about nail polish & nail care products.  I've always been an OPI & Zoya girl so I haven't really branched out and tried too many other nail care brands.  There was a posting I saw that you can sign up for the month for $.01...that's right, ONE PENNY!  Their monthly service is $19.99 so that's a huge savings.  I thought, "what the heck, for a penny, why not?!"  I took a style profile quiz and at the end was presented with 3 nail polishes and 1 top coat.  The colors looked awesome!  Lately I've been in a ballerina slipper pink or grey nail polish phase so it was awesome to be able to try some new fun colors for pretty much free.  Shipping was very fast and the customer service was great! The box was packaged SO cute and pretty! 
Seriously, how stinkin' cute is that?!
It came packaged with a postcard style letter that described what was included in my box.  There was also a letter from Jane Park, CEO & Founder of Julep Maven thanking me for signing up, it also said that they donate $1 from every nail color sold to organizations that support women through their Powered By Girlfriends Program. Very nice!  I love companies that give back.

So onto the gorgeous colors...

The first color is Megan which is a Mediterranean aquamarine shimmer, it's so gorgeous! It reminds me of glittery ocean water (if there was glitter in the ocean, haha) It went on really smooth and covered in one coat.
Second is Hayden, a bold and bright neon peach creme.  This color stood out immediately because this is the type of color I usually end up picking. I thought it would be more of a neutral...the name says "neon" doh! It's soo bright! It is very creamy and opaque.  My nail was covered in one coat and there weren't any streaky marks at all! This will be FAB in the summer to show off tanned toes!
Third is Leah a grass green with a hint of shimmer.  I love this color!  It is something very out-of-the-box for me, but absolutely stunning!  I love this for the holidays! It will be perfect for Christmastime :)
It also came with a Julep Fast Dry Topcoat which I really liked! It made my nails uber shiny and really did help speed up the drying time.

Now, I loved the way these look on but I didn't take pictures with it on my nails, I don't want to scare everyone away from my blog!  My nails look hideous! Hopefully I can go get them fixed up soon.  I can say that the color on my nails is exactly what is in the bottle.  They aren't those colors that look like a certain shade and then end up being completely different once you put them on your nails.
