Boo, January's Julep Maven theme is "Escape", and it features neons and nudes. I haaaaaaaaaaate neons - they are not flattering with my skin tone, and they are just not my taste (give me darky vampy reds or stormy grays all day, especially in the dead of winter). I am a fan of nudes, but every single nude this month is a sheer or frosty pink. Bleh.
For the first time since the Trina Turk collection, I'm really, really, really tempted to skip the month (but that was under the old referral program, which made you use up your referral points and not skip). I kind of want the hand and cuticle stick, but I can always get it later through a mystery box or secret store or some other method Julep has to reel me in. Plus I have approximately 11 zillion of the cuticle oils, so it's not like my hands will suffer if I skip it.
If I do get one, it will be Classic With A Twist - Grace, Madison, and the Hand and Cuticle Stick, for 2000 of my precious Jules (thanks again for everyone who subscribed using my referral link!)
Here is a screenshot of the nail wardrobe:
It looks like golden box winners will get their regular box, 5 of the 6 neons (not Nina), a $25 Havaiana gift card, and a "pedi-friendly bonus gift".
I'm leaning towards skipping and saving my Jules, since I bought the nail wardrobe in December and the January Mystery Box. It's not like I will run out of polish if I miss one month :)
I don't know, is it just me - do you guys love neons? Or are you also little disappointed after the November and December awesomeness? Any regular skippers out there, or do you feel like you need to get something every month?
Don't forget to enter the Julep contest for $432 worth of polish and products here (be sure to mention the Diniwilks!!!!), and to stop on over to my contest afterwards. I think my blog has the most referrals so far (squeeeeeeeee!!!!)(and THANK YOU), let's keep it that way!
***Update: After checking the swatches on the Julep blog, I think I will probably go ahead and get the Bombshell box with my Jules. So glad they post those swatches - it completely changed my mind!!! Also not sure why I didn't check BEFORE I posted this. Brain fart.
