July Julep Maven Box Add-On

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.
Here’s what I opened —

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?

  1. I kind of like yours better-i am more of a “dusty” or darker kind of person. These summer brights are just not me-I have tried a bunch since joining Julep but always go back to darker! Great pics btw! Very professional looking!

  2. Thanks Jean! I like the “dusty” version better too 🙂 Though I can't say I prefer darker polishes, lol! And thanks for the compliment on the pictures 😀 I am just using a Canon “point and shoot” camera (that term comes from my sister who is going to school for photography), not a DSLR. It's sometimes hard to get the pictures to be in focus because my hand taking the picture ends up shaking because I'm not holding it with 2 hands 😛
