Julep May Bombshell Box - Part Two

Hey everyone!  Part two of the Julep Maven May box is up today, this time the polish swatches! If you missed part one, be sure to check it out!

This time around I opted for the Bombshell box since I wasn't particularly drawn to the colors in the Boho Glam box. It seems the Bombshell is my default second pick!

Julep Saaya (Bombshell May 2014)

Saaya is a warm peach with golden shimmer. I am dying over this color! Peachy shades are a definite fav for me this year. And the shimmer is bananas! Formula was a tiny bit  thicker than what I prefer. I used two coats for full opacity. A thinner application is needed for the thicker base, or you might end up with some pesky bubbles!

Julep Laree (Bombshell May 2014)

Laree is a vivid rose pink with golden shimmer. like that of it's box mate. I actually really like this color, even tho pink is not a personal fav. I think it is bright and fun, perfect for late spring and summer wardrobes. Definitely a killer pedi color choice too! Formula was identical to Saaya.

I think Julep's strong suite is their spring/summer color choices. I seem to remember loving the boxes last year around this time as well. So I am back on the Julep bandwagon once again. I just wish there was some consistency with the brand.

  1. Great polishes and both of them are having gorgeous gold shimmers, I love it!

  2. Laree looks gorgeous! I didn't get this color, hopefully I can snag it during a sale. A while back, I think it was when they started putting the polishes in little boxes and called them Color Treat, Julep quietly changed their formula to the oxygen formula or whatever it's called lol Now they have the base and top coat. Long story lol But I think since they changed the formula they are not as consistent as they once were. I've been a Maven since the beginning and almost every polish had an awesome formula! Now it seems to be hit or miss :(. I still love me some Julep but wish they didn't change the formula.
