This was a really tough month to decide what style I wanted from Julep- everything was so pretty!
I ended up picking the Bombshell profile. You can pick whatever style you want each month, or skip any month. You can also add on products at a discount, or upgrade to the whole collection (and now, there is an option to upgrade to just get all the polishes and not the beauty products!). Julep is $20 per month for nail polish and beauty/skincare items.

|Twistbands as a bonus!|
This month's bonus item was two Twistband hair ties, which are the only things I wear in my hair now. (Don't pay full price for these! Search Etsy for fold-over elastic and cut it down to size and tie knots in it... make 100 hair ties for like $8).
|Eyeshadow: swatched once with finger, no primer.|
The eyeshadow is nicely pigmented and feels really creamy when you apply it. Every color blends into the next very easily. Plus, who doesn't need more neutral shadow? I know I do!
The nail colors in this month's bombshell box were Andrea and Cara. Andrea is described as a full-coverage bronze glitter, and Cara as a cranberry frost. I think these are appropriate descriptions, but Andrea has much more depth to it than just one color of bronze- there is gold in there, too.

In addition to this month's two colors, I added on another one! I had the Jules for it, and it was so pretty that I couldn't resist. I don't own anything like Celia, so I'm glad I went for it!
|Polish and Add-Ons, Top to Bottom:|
Celia, Andrea, Cara
Celia is an icy green metallic and is stunning. Sometimes with foil-looking polishes, you see every single brush stroke. That is not the case with Celia. It has a perfect formula and you could totally get away with one careful coat, but I usually do two anyway. This is an amazing holiday color and I'm really glad that I added it on!
|Julep Celia (2 coats)|
I've been wearing Cara with Andrea as an accent nail for two days now, and I've gotten a number of compliments on the combination. I can't stop looking at the glitter! It's so pretty!
