Julep Maven April 2013 Full Collection

I couldn’t decide this month which Maven box I wanted this month. I liked all the colors in my normal box but I had so many colors I wanted to add on that I decided to upgrade to the full collection. For the most part I like all the colors, the only down side is that I got another dry shampoo! So some lucky family member will be getting that.

So let’s get Into what is in the box.

This is the freebie that was put into the box this month. When I was younger my family would always vacation in the mountains and where ever we went they had rock candy, so this brings back memories.

I’m really interested in the Mighty Nail & Cuticle Serum. This is suppose to help dry, peeling nails, which I have. You apply it twice a day for two weeks and then once a day after that. I’ll let you know how it works or if I notice any change after the 2 weeks.

This is Julep’s new dry shampoo. This is suppose to be invisible and you won’t have to worry about dull hair.

So now the good stuff, all the polishes! This month’s theme is “Turn on the Brights” and these are bright polishes.

The picture on the left is a swatch inside and the picture on the right is in sunlight. Well, almost sunlight as it’s very cloudy today. The swatches on the nail wheel are all two coats except for candy, which is three coats. You can tell the true neon colors by the fact that they are matte. All went on pretty smoothly except for Eden, which was really thick. I might have to put in some polish thinner to see if that helps. The only other problem I had was with Ally, which had a strong off smell different for normal polish.
