June Julep Box and ‘Daisy’; the Super Thick Julep Polish

This month’s Julep Maven box was a great summer treat.

Beautiful colors in each of the box .. so great, in fact that I almost couldn’t choose…

As you can see I opted for the Boho Glam- such a fun, lively box. (I also got a couple of add-on polishes, but I’ll save that for another post).

Btw, you can take the survey, find out what your polish style is and sign up for your own Julep Box at Julep.com.  Promo code COLORS4ONE gets you your first box for just 1 cent! – no contract. That’s what I did!

As always, the box was a beautifully presented, and not only did it come with two full size nail polishes but  nice size hand/face sunscreen and a mint scented spf 15 chapstick. The chapstick  is one of my favorites- it smells like a thin mint!

Seriously, thin mints!

On the other hand, the ‘Daisy’ polish, was the biggest disappointment. I was really excited to have such a beautiful yellow for summer.. and while the polish looked good on my toes, it really did no justice to my hands. Actually, I couldn’t stand it. Wore it to work for half a day and took it off during lunch. It was a little too bright and a little too yellow. Slightly muted and it would have been beautiful. As it is, though, it’s just.. annoying.

Lastly, the polish is SO thick it doesn’t go on well. Look closely at the following picture and you’ll see what I mean- streaks and then some.
