Near-Freebie Alert: Become a Julep Maven for $.01!

So, I've been dragging my heels on becoming a Julep Maven. But after seeing an awesomely irresistible special a few hours ago, as well as a few nice polishes coming down the pipe, I actually gave in.

For those who don't know about Julep, it's actually a pretty interesting idea. For $19.99 a month, you receive $40 worth of products and at least two of them are nail polishes. You take a style quiz and are given one of five beauty titles: American Beauty, Boho Glam, Classic with a Twist, Bombshell, and It Girl. (Note: I was chosen an American Beauty!) But don't feel locked into that. You can preview the next month's box and switch types between the 20th-24th and your box will ship on the 27th. For example, I switched my box to a Classic with a Twist. Though I keep going back and forth between that (a shimmery purple and a sheer pink) and Boho Glam (a salmon and a sheer blue glitter). Please give me your thoughts on that, by the way... photos are at the bottom.

You can pay for the whole thing up front, bi-yearly, quarterly, or monthly. I chose monthly because it looks a heck of a lot better on my credit card bill. And literally, this month there will be a $.01 next to my Julep charge. Seriously. With shipping and everything.

So how do I get a Maven box for a penny? You can click HERE and enter the code COLOR2012 when you sign up.

Full disclosure, that link is my referral page and I do get a credit for every person I refer. So if you are uncomfortable with that, you can just visit to sign up.

And here are the photos of the Boho Glam and Classic with a Twist boxes, as well as the others. Help me make a decision and tell me which you would pick for the March box. (I would DEFINITELY click on them to make them bigger for the full effect.)

Happy shopping!

A Zoya Promo is coming...

According to Zoya's Facebook and Twitter pages, there is a promo coming. Whether it is today or tomorrow, I'm not sure but it looks like it has something to do with the newly-added page for the Whitney Eve by Whitney Port runway show at NYFW.

She selected Kristen with Maisie and Megan with Chloe for her models.

Here's hoping they are BOGO. I could really use some Maisie and Chloe in my life. How about you, ladies?

Hump Day Holo: China Glaze Traffic Jam

I've been toying around for a few days with my bottle of OPI DS Shimmer and using it as a top coat to make creme polishes holo. So I thought it would be kind of fun on Wednesdays to showcase the holo-fied polish of the week.

Up this week is China Glaze Traffic Jam!




Day 24: Zoya Anja

When it comes to reds, I like them vampy. In fact, I don't think I own a red that is bright and a true red. So it comes as no shock that I own Anja and love her dearly.

Zoya Anja a plumagranate (see what I did there? It's also a flavor of Snapple!) creme that dries with a rich luster.  This is with just two coats, though I probably could have done with a third to make it better for the camera. Two coats would be fine for everyday wear.

For Day 25, we're going to go Switzerland and pick between the neutrals: Petra and Jana.

Look for a guest editor to take part in the challenge during the next 5 days! She's a pretty cool chick.

And also remember to take part in the Passion for Fashion giveaway!
