Julep October Box Swatches

I received these awhile ago and I had kind of forgotten about them. This month, I chose the "Maven's Choice" box because all the other boxes were filled with crackles and I definitely do not need any more crackle polishes, at all.

Keira is a deep red creme. I really enjoy this shade, and didn't own anything like it previously. Formula was great, it took two thin coats for full opacity.

Eloise is a smokey blue creme. It reminds me of Zoya Natty in shade. The formula on this was also great, two thin coats for full opacity.

Lisa is described as a warm pebble grey creme, which is how it appears in the photos. In person, I see it as more of a khaki, which is supposed to be very popular for the fall. Again, amazing formula, opaque in two coats.

Some ruffle nail art using these colors. I used this tutorial from Chalkboard Nails, and well, I think I need some practice.

In addition to these polishes, I received the quick-dry drops. I don't have much to say about those. If you have a quick dry topcoat then I don't see a point it having them. They did work to the point where my polish was dry to the touch, but they were still about to be smudged/dented.
