My first manicure for February was Julep’s Marion. I received Marion in my February Maven Box along with Joan, Rebel, and a bonus Freedom Polymer Topcoat. My February Maven box was on Julep for my being a loyal brand ambassador. My Maven box came with a hand written note from CEO founder Jane Park. How cool is that? I love the little personal details Julep puts into their boxes every now and again. I learned from a previous Maven note that Jane Park went to law school with my mayor Cory Booker.
Marion is a tealy blue packed with silver shimmer. It has a smokey quality too it. It’s beyond lovely. I had trouble with the application on this one since it was quite thick. It was a bit tough to get the second coat to apply evenly. The color is so gorgeous, that I’ll try to restore it with nail polish thinner before I throw in the towel. I also used the Freedom polymer top coat which was quite shiny but it took forever to dry since my polish application was quite thick. Still worth it though.
