July It Girl Julep Maven Box

New month - new Maven Box!
Man...who wasn't excited about this one?
Everyone was clamoring for this gorgeous patriotic glitter addition!
Sadly, I added on the O Canada shade but somehow my billing info was lost and so now I am waiting on it to arrive sometime next week and I don't have it for these photos. But I have America, and that's pretty damn good too.

Ack! Atomic Fireballs!?
Good thing these candies never go to waste with my boyfriend around...

From top to bottom: America, Daphne, Mila and Kate

Now my thoughts...
I made my boyfriend be my guinea pig yet again so I could get a notion of these polishes.
America - awesome. It has stars in it! And it glitters like no ones business. 2 coats of it made it almost fully opaque so I'd say 3 coats or wear over a gorgeous red.
Daphne - not bad. I know I have similar colors but I'm always drawn to this shade. Opacity...not sure, I did one regular coat and it looked like it would need one more for perfection.
Mila - meh. I have glitters just like this but with bigger particles that I like more. This will most likely go up for swap/sale at some point I think. 
Kate - loved it at 2 coats. Its a shimmery slight off white. HOWEVER...after I top coated, no more shimmer. WHY YOU NO SHIMMER NO MORE KATE?? Either way, with the onset of my Alpine Snow refusing to open, this was a welcome addition to my lack of whites collection. Opaque in two coats with minimal streaking.

I love the Julep Maven program. You can always get your intro box for ONLY A PENNY (including free shipping) - you can skip any month you want or send your box to a friend, add-on polishes are way cheap to add to your monthly box and you can change your style every month too. NO RULES!
If you do wish to sign up, use that link and take the style quiz. At the end, use code COLOR2012 to get your FREE INTRO BOX.
