Julep's Taylor and Dandelions

In February I joined the Julep Maven program where for $20/month you get at least 2 polishes, one extra item (sometimes another polish) and one small free gift. I actually tried the first month free using the code FREEMAVEN at checkout. It might still work so give it a go if you're interested! So far, I have been so happy with this program! The packaging, marketing, products, everything has been great. I actually feel like I'm getting something great for my 20 bucks. For the March box I got two polishes, some awesome smelling and non-greasy hand lotion, and some great chapstick. I definitely feel like I got more than $20 worth of product and I'm really excited to see what comes next for this program :) 

Anyway, totally got side tracked, BUT the reason I mentioned this program, is that because I paid for my March subscription box, I was privy to a "Secret Sale" by Julep and OH MY GOSH this was worth paying for the box! Normally, Julep polishes run for $14/bottle...well, this sale had sets of 3 and 5 for $12.99 and $17.99 respectively. WHAT!? So, naturally, I bought a 3 and 5 set and am in love! So excited! 

The polish that really spoke to me from my new lovelies is Taylor, a fabulous deep, sky blue creme that I am so in love with! I added some simple dandelion's with OPI's My Boyfriend Scales Walls (I actually ordered a new bottle of this tonight!) using my striping brush. They were really quick and easy but I absolutely love how these look! 

My friend is celebrating her birthday tonight (Friday) and I'm super excited to go out with these on! Fun and bright and fun...and bright! 

 Here's my right hand!

Happy Polishing! :D

Sneaky edit! When I woke up this morning, I had a ridiculous urge to mattify these babies. I haven't used my Essie Matte About You in forever and so I slapped a coat on these and I LOVE how they look. So cool!! The difference is probably more noticeable in person, but I love them nonetheless.
