My First Julep Box and Jessica Swatch

My first Julep Box arrived last Thursday, but due to getting home late from work and the office at my apartment complex closing before I got home I wasn't able to pick it up until Sunday!  And because it was my first I wanted to take pictures and document how everything was packaged and what came in my box.  But as I was finishing folding all the laundry my boyfriend was almost more excited to see the contents than I was and opened it up and started pulling everything out.  I had selected the It Girl box, so I knew that I would be receiving Jessica, Mandy, and Brooke.  For my post about my expectations of my Julep box, click here.

My first Julep polishes!
First of all, I was incredibly intrigued by Jessica, because I really don't have any creme polishes.  The Spoiled polish, Lox-y Lady, was my first creme polish, and I'm not even sure it is a true creme.  I also don't have many pastel colors.  But without further ado, here are the pics of Jessica.

I love, love, love, love, LOVE the color of Jessica.  And since I'm pretty pale, it makes my hands look super tan.  Though I did get a sunburn/slight tan (maybe?) this past weekend right before applying this polish.  My only complaint is how thick the polish was.  I had to have a lot of polish on the brush for it to apply smoothly and if I missed a spot or didn't get full coverage the first swipe then it got really streaky.  After two coats, I was able to even it out, and a top coat certainly helped out. You might even be able to see in a few pictures how lumpy and uneven the application was on my thumb...

Other than the application, I really like the color and the wear has been great too.  It really didn't start chipping badly until today, which was day four.  I also didn't work Monday or Tuesday, so the typical wear and tear may not have happened. 

Still to come: Mandy and Brooke!
