Julep Swatches: My First Maven Box

I showed you my haul the other day which included my very first Julep Maven box, so today I have swatches of the polishes for you!
I got 5 polishes in my first Maven box by using a promo code, and it only cost me $10.

First up is Emma - A sheer nude with shimmer. I needed 3 coats for this, and it didn't cover fully. This polish would probably be used best over another color.

Sasha - A cream coral. I only needed 2 coats for this and the coverage was great, I probably could have got away with 1 coat but I used 2 just to be safe.

Claire - A cream blue, a light blue that's also very vibrant. I used 2 coats for this, and the coverage was good. I love this color, it's such a gorgeous shade of blue.

Rose - A cream red with a pink tint to it. Again, 2 coats for full coverage. Not my favorite, but it's still a pretty color.

Chelsea - A glitter that's mainly purple, with gold, silver, and multi-colored glitter throughout. I used 2 coats for full coverage. This was definitely my favorite, you can wear it on it's own or over a color. So pretty.
First swatch is of 1 coat, second is 2 coats.

I really loved these, and you can't beat that amazing price for 5 polishes (especially since at work I think we sell them for over $15?).

Thanks for reading, I will be showing you more swatches from my haul soon!



  1. Claire is probably my favorite Julep color :)

  2. Loved the swatches, specially Rose and Chelsea 2 coats. It´s a shame we don´t have Julep here in Brazil, because the colors are great.

  3. Beautiful swatches! They're all beautiful!

  4. Wow! those are some seriously beautiful shades!

  5. Sasha and Claire are my favorites, I must have these someday! Great swatches, thanks!

  6. I just became a "Maven" myself and this post makes me super excited to open my package! happy polishing!
