Julep Maven :: September 2012 It Girl Box

whoa, baby... my legs are killing me from trotting yesterday! i think i used muscles i've never before used in my entire life :D i've had so much paperwork to do today that i haven't been able to exercise (at first i was like... YES! but now that i'm stiff... i def should have done something!)... i'll have to get back on the wagon tomorrow!

i got my September Julep box in It Girl today! they partnered up with fashion designerTrina Turk for their fall colors... and they are... different. the polishes are kind of ketchup, mustard, and... cappuccino. i'm not thrilled with the colors, but the formulas seem amazing. i slapped each of them down on a color wheel and all three were super opaque! the extra treatie this month was a magnet (i'm guessing designed by Trina Turk), but it's really creepy to me. here's the box (the packaging was adorable this month!), let me know what you think of the magnet, it's the top card with the girl on it!




and here are the polishes! they look sneakingly similar to the OPI Germany collection... i just ordered that, hopefully it will get here soon so i can compare!




even if i end up not liking two of the colors, the red is a definite win! is there a standout color to you? 

i'm off to do more paperwork! Ria :)

  1. I really liked all the colors this month--except for the It Girl colors (which is what I normally get). I had to skip though.

    1. the It Girl ones were definitely the least attractive... but i always feel like it's such a way better deal to get the three polishes that i always get It Girl!
