Julep Mystery Box -- September

Howdie!  Hope everyone is enjoying their Monday so far :)  Can you believe it's October 1st already!?  Craziness!

So before we get too far away from September, I thought I should show you what I got in my September Julep Mystery Box.  A lot has gone on in my little world of polish in the last couple weeks and I have so many "ready to be blogged about" pictures and manis :D  I probably have enough, when you take into account all the Challenges coming up (cause I'm addicted now!), to do me until the end of of the year!  Maybe I should stop painting my nails for a while... :O  Did I just say out loud?!  Shame on me!  Haha!

Anywho, onto the Mystery Box! :)

As most of you probably know, I'm a die-hard Julep Maven.  If you want more information on the Maven program, visit my Julep Maven page.  Julep has Mystery Box sales every so often and I normally have no will power when they come up for sale.  Mystery Boxes are polish packages Julep puts together that range in value from $60 - $200+ and they can be purchased for $19.99 with the Discount Code Julep provides with the announcement about the sale.  I haven't been lucky enough to get a BIG Mystery Box, but so far I haven't been disappointed in what I have received either.

Here's is what I got!

Everything came so nicely wrapped in one of the Julep reusable totes :)

Left to Right:  Renee, Sasha, Mystery Yellow, Sienna
First up -- Renee.  This is a really pretty pale lavender colour.  I love purple, so this is right up my alley :D  I also don't have that many pastels in my collection, so this is perfect, can't wait to try it out, especially for Easter nails :D

Next up -- Sasha.  I already have this colour, but still love it.  Julep calls it "cantaloupe" but it's more coral-pink.  I purchased this colour a few months ago during a Flash Sale.

Third up -- Mystery Yellow.  This colour doesn't technically have a name.  Julep will release "never before released" mystery colours in Mystery Boxes sometimes.  You don't know if your Mystery Box is going to contain the Mystery Colour or not, and I have never had luck receiving one before now.  This time, they released 4 (from what I understand from the ladies on the Facebook pages I'm on) -- a yellow, a brown, a blue and a green (if I'm wrong, someone please let me know!).  Though I'm not a fan of the colour yellow, I thought I would try this out.  It is similar in colour to Daisy but it has a shimmer to it :)

And finally, Sienna.  I have seen a lot of Mavens raving about this colour and I don't have it, until now :D  This is a really nice almost-nude, very neutral shimmer polish.  It's not gold, it's not bronze.. I would say, maybe almost like white gold??  That's what it reminds me of.

What did you get in your Mystery Box?  Did you get any of the other Mystery Colours?


  1. awww I wish I had got this one instead :(

  2. I'm in love with Sienna!!!

  3. I agree that Sienna is one of my very favorite Julep polishes. I thought I would like it, but ended up loving it. I have always wanted to try Sasha!
