It's been a while since I played with nail polish. I don't know why but I just haven't been in the mood to polish my nails lately. The Julep February box might just be the push I needed to start again. I love opening their boxes (when I'm not skipping the monthly subscription) because they always add nice little somethings to surprise you.
See the cute little red heart chocolates?
I usually get the It Girl box but decided to switch this month since I wasn't a big fan of the colors. I got the Classic with a Twist box instead, and the colors are Claudette, a smoky brick red creme, and Helen, a smoky pastel lavender creme.
The box also included their new Freedom Polymer Top Coat which supposedly has a gel-like shine but is easy to remove. It will be interesting to try this in place of my trusty Seche Vite, which gives great since but sometimes causes polish shrinkage on my nails. Another item in the box was the Oxygen Nail Treatment, which I've read strengthens your nails and can be used as both a base coat or by itself.
One thing I always look forward to in the boxes is the little surprise gift they include inside. This month it was this small eyelash curler. It's not something I would buy if I were to see it since I already have one I love, but I think I might have fun just experimenting with it. It would also make a cute little gift, wouldn't it?
