Hey everybody! I got more nail mail today! It was my add-on to my July Maven Box, Daphne. This is a beautiful dusty teal colour.
There was a lot of controversy over this colour on the Julep Facebook page because the actual colour didn’t match the swatches they posted when they sent us the e-mails as to what would be in the July boxes. I have to say, no, they don’t match but I think that I like the “real” colour even more than the colour that was shown in the Julep swatches.
The add-ons for the Maven Boxes ship separately from the complete box because they pre-package all the Maven Boxes so rather than confusing the issue to put additional polishes in thousands of boxes, they ship your add-on order separately. Some people don’t like this because it’s not as “environmentally friendly”, but the boxes are cardboard and everything in it is recyclable, so I don’t see a problem with it.
The add-ons come in a little box, it’s so cute! And it’s filled with the lovely crinkle paper as the bigger boxes.
So yet again, as soon as I opened the box, I knew I would have to paint my nails this beautiful colour — so here is my NOTD 😀
And no, you’re not seeing things… I added watermarks to my photos. Thanks to Stephanie at Sincerely Stephanie, I have a really easy program to work with for this. It’s very user friendly 🙂
Also, here is the swatch photo from Julep from when the e-mails went out about the July Maven Boxes — which “version” do you prefer — the colour in their photo or the colour in mine?
