Manicure Monday: Trina & Donna

Well, it's been a few months since I got a new Julep Maven* box. I skipped September and October because I just wasn't crazy about the colors and I was going to be out traveling so I didn't have the budget and I wasn't going to be in town to receive the October box anyway.

Plus, I'd bought a few new polishes from Zoya and Sinful Colors, so I figured I needed to slow it down on the nail polish acquisition.

But, this month, Julep caught my attention again with the color selection picked out for their Bombshell profile. Usually, I get the It Girl profile because it has three polishes instead of two. But I liked the colors in Bombshell this month better.

The colors: Trina (a gorgeous purple amethyst/grape color with purple shimmer) and Donna (a beautiful peacock teal blue creme).

Both colors applied really well. They were opaque and I could have easily gotten away with one coat (but I still did two). And they weren't streaky at all.

Check out my video (above) to see the rest of the items that came in the November box and the polish swatches below.
