The October Julep Maven box was the first one that had tempted me in a long time. In fact, I hadn’t taken a monthly box since I joined in February – just a mystery box here and a random set there.

After much back and forth, I settled on It Girl, with two add-ons (Beatrix & Dahlia):

Here they are swatched. Let’s not talk about the fact that I just now figured out you can pull the tops off of Julep’s bottle caps, in order to make swatching easy. Every time I received polish in the past, I would think, why did they put the swatching stickers on *before* they sent it.

And I’m about to do my customary Sunday night mani with Dahlia – I can’t even handle how much I love this color. It is absolutely stunning.
