Julep Valerie: A Sephora Exclusive

Hello All

I was at Sephora last week and noticed that they have updated their nail polish section. They are carrying a lot more high end brands in store such as Deborah Lippmann and Marc Jacobs. I also noticed that Sephora had brought in a brand new batch of Julep nail polish colors. As you all know I am a huge fan of Julep. Sephora carries four new exclusive colors that are not available online through Julep.com. You can only pick these four polishes up in-store or online at Sephora.com

  • Valerie - teal with iridescent micro glitter
  • Sydney - red orange crème
  • Carol - barely there coral
  • Kendra - army green frost
Below are some personal swatches I made of Julep Valerie. I really love this color. It applied smooth and opaque. It is also a great dark green color for Fall.

Julep Maven September 2013

Something was going on with my local post office this past week. I was suppose to receive my Maven box last Tuesday. It never showed up. After waiting patiently for a week I was over it :) I tracked this baby down myself and went and picked it up. No one gets between a Polish Addict and her new polishes. Let's get started!

Julep's theme for its September 2013 colors is called "The Cityscape Collection"

I decided to order the "Classics with a Twist" box. This months box included the colors Padma (a royal plum crème) and Florence (a classic camel crème.) The beauty product for this month is Julep's new Bare Face Cleansing Oil which is suppose to be a cleanser that gently and thoroughly dissolves makeup, dirt, and excess oil without over-drying your skin, and rinses clean with no oily residue.

Finally, I also order Reece which is a purple holographic shimmer polish. It was September's special add-on color.
The colors look gorgeous and I can't wait to wear them. After months of bright polishes from Julep, I am very happy about their September collection. The September colors will be perfect for transitioning into Fall.
