NOTD #18: Julep Taylor & Maya

These are the two polishes I received in my first Julep box:

* Taylor - a periwinkle blue
* Maya - shimmery, peachy pink

They are both beautiful colours in the bottle. Taylor applies flawlessly and barely takes two coats for an even finish. Maya is a little more finicky. Due to the nature of the pearl finish, the brush strokes are really noticeable and it's very difficult to even it out.

Julep polishes range in value from $10 to $14 (depending on whether you receive them in a monthly box or purchase them individually) and they contain 8mL of product in each bottle. Considering that Essie polishes are about $8 with 14mL of product, you don't receive that much product for the amount you pay with Julep.

Like I said, I probably won't be purchasing this box on a monthly basis. However, the penny promo at Julep is still available if you want to try it out! The code is COLOR2012 and you can order yours here (LINK!).
