Julep February Box

The winter is seriously taking its toll on my nails, and I've gotten used to the short length, but yesterday my one nail broke the shortest my nail have been since I quit biting them (run on sentence?) I honestly don't think anyone wants to see my short pointer fingernail so unfortunately I won't be posting any nail art any time soon.

So onto the point of this post! I recently received my Julep box for February, and while I won't be posting any swatches, I figured I could show you what's in my box!

I'm an It Girl and this month I decided to stick with it, so glad I did! 

In this month's It Girl box, I received three polishes, a polymer topcoat, an eyelash curler, and heart chocolates for Valentine's Day. The polishes are Joan, Marion, and Rebel. Joan is a raspberry base with gold flakies. I think this is absolutely gorgeous and very unique to my collection. Marion is a shimmery teal, which I also love. My room is painted teal, so obviously anything that color is a win. Rebel is a silver holographic polish. I am very interested to see how that looks on the nail, because I love anything holo. I even own a purple holographic purse, and bought a few holo shoes from Forever21. 

I'm curious about both the topcoat and eyelash curler, I guess I will have to wait and see how they work!

I also received add-ons this month. I caved and finally got the Hand and Cuticle Stick, which I wanted last month but didn't add it in enough time. I also added three sheets of the 'Swatch Me!' stickers to put swatches on top of the bottles. Lastly, I added Sally which was part of the American Beauty Box. Sally is a light nudey/yellow shade that kind of reminds me of Zoya Jacqueline.

And here are the 'Swatch Me!' stickers in action!
