October may be my favorite month of the year for picking up beauty products. I love the pinks for Breast Cancer Awareness, and I love the blacks and purples for Halloween. Julep always over-delivers on Halloween nail art!
I have been a Julep Maven going on two years now. The nail polish subscription box program keeps getting better and better. Not only can you now customize your monthly shipment, the company has also been making two or three special edition boxes available in place of the standard selections.
For October, two special edition Halloween nail art boxes were available in place of the Black Magic colors. I picked up one such box for my Maven choice – The Dark Arts.
This box was available at the regular Maven price: $24.99. It included:
Julep Oxygen Performance Top Coat – I love the new oxygen items (base coat, top coat, nail treatment). This top coat dries fast. It’s my second bottle.
Cleopatra (Black Latex) – This may be my favorite nail color from Julep. Ever. It’s the top first swatch in both the middle and bottom right images above. It has kind of a flat finish and looks amazing with nail art, as a statement nail or worn alone. I’ve gone through quite a bit of this over the past year so this was another reason I picked this box.
Casper (Glow-in-Dark) – This was an add-on polish. As you can see in the swatches (2nd swatch in the middle, lower swatch on the bottom right), it has a little sparkle but not much color. You can wear it over another color without any issues.
Glam Rock (Stardust Finish) – This is a dark sparkle purple with a sand finish – or stardust. I have a love-hate relationship with this finish. Love it – polishes in this finish wear forever! It takes so much to chip or wear them off. You can easily get a couple weeks out of a mani with this finish. Hate it – the rough feel has me involuntarily picking at it.
Estelle – This is another rough finish but in black with multi-color sparkle. It’s gorgeous.
Chevron Nail Art Decals – This box also included nail decals in a chevron print.
If you love the above box too and are not yet a Maven, you may be in luck. It looks like similar colors may be available in the special edition Halloween Welcome Box.
