I know it has been awhile since I've blogged. Life has been crazy busy. My daddy had a bone marrow transplant and I'm happy to say is doing wonderful! :-)
I received my Julep box and thought I would post a pic of my mani today. As you can see from my background, I took a small break from my Accounting homework to paint my nails, lol.

I picked up 3 of the China Glaze polishes from the Electropop collection yesterday. The colors I bought were Dance Baby, Aquadelic and Electric Beat. I love them!! They are so creamy and opaque. Go China Glaze! :D

I received my Julep Maven box for February, and I must say it is SO pretty. The team at Julep really knows how to present a beautiful box. I am usually the "American Beauty" profile but chose to change it this month to "It Girl" because I wanted all 3 polishes offered. This month was Oscars themed and Julep included a yummy dark chocolate Oscar in the box for an extra treat!
The three polishes that came in my box this month were Rachel, Elizabeth, and Oscar.
ELIZABETH - Had to get one with flash so you could see the shimmer in Elizabeth (without flash left, with flash right):
I am very happy with my box this month and can't wait until the next one! :)

Here are the swatches of the WnW polishes I bought and raved about in the previous blog post. I did these swatches all at once so they aren't super perfect. I hope they will be helpful to anyone interested. :)
The brush is very large and flat, but I really enjoyed it because I could cover my nails in pretty much one stroke. All the polishes are pretty opaque. The following swatches are one thick coat of polish. If I was doing a full mani, I would probably do two thinner coats. Overall, I love these polishes and my favorites have to be: Tropicalia, Candy-licious, Club Havana, Through the Grapevine, On a Trip, and I need a Refresh-mint.
Here is a pic of the brush size. This is the WnW brush (left) held up next to a China Glaze brush (right).
And here are the swatches:
