Julep Cinco de Mayo Mystery Box

I am so excited to share with you my first Mystery Box from Julep.  I really hit the jackpot.  There are some great goodies in this box 

Vanessa is a beautiful iridescent glitter in a clear base.  I get mesmerized by beautiful iridescent glitters and this one is for sure a keeper!  The blues in this one are what really gets me. 

Christina is a beautiful color.  Julep describes it as Shimmery, deep orange–not as red as it might appear on your screen. Screams DIVA, so expect attention!”  I sort of disagree.  I see a beautiful red-orange but it is definitely red with some orange shimmer in it.  It is absolutely stunning.  The formula is great and I absolutely love it. 

Parker is a beautiful orange.  I think it looks sort of pumpkin-y but Julep describes it as “Golden tangerine creme. Perfect for the first pedi of sandal season.”  I guess I can see tangerine, either way it is one of my favorites from the box.  Possibly because of it’s absolute stunning formula.  Creamy, opaque, and streak-free.  

Hayden is probably one of my favorite colors in the box but the formula is a deal breaker.  It was thick and goopy all while also being streaky.  Julep simply describes it as a “Neon peach.

Alyson is described as “Almond creme featured on all the runways for spring. The new neutral.” by Julep.  It is a lovely formula but I am not wowed by the color.  It is very reminiscent of Skull and Glossbones by OPI but just slightly more brown.  

Julep describes their Fast Dry Topcoat as “A quick-dry high shine finish that prevents yellowing and protects your nail color for longer lasting mani-pedis.”  I realllllly like it.  It has a beautiful glide-on formula and I have to agree that this did dry super fast.  I don’t know much beyond that because I just got these items last night and I have only tried them once but I can see this being my new favorite topcoat.  


My favorite item in the box is the Essential Cuticle Oil.  It was the one item I was hoping to receive and I am thrilled that I got it.  I have horrible cuticles and I am on a mission to make them fabulous.  I see all these other great nail bloggers with pretty nails and cuticles and it makes me soooo jealous.  :)  I want those pretty digits too.  Julep says this is an “All-natural blend of essential oils and Vitamin E hydrates and strengthens nails and cuticles. Extends the life of your manicure while leaving a glossy sheen. Use daily to soften rough cuticles and strengthen nails. The convenient roller-ball application allows you to take your Julep Essential Cuticle Oil everywhere you go.


Last but not least I got some pretty Nail Appliques in the style called Peacock to try.  These have been huge on the market lately and I am sure that you have all seen my Kiss Nail Dress review (I absolutely adore those things) and these seem very similar in concept.  I can’t wait to give them a try and do a post on them letting you know what I think. 

Below I linked the video I made last night of me rambling on about the box.  Feel free to watch it.  :)  If you want to get your first monthly subscription box for 1 cent then use the code “ShareOnMay“!

    Thank god I didn’t end up buying this like I wanted! I already have parker, hayden and Alyson and the cuticle oil. I got those in the last mystery box. I feel like they’re just sending out old polishes that aren’t being sold in these boxes.

      I had none of them previously so I am very glad that I was able to partake.
