January Julep Maven It Girl Box - Swatched!

I have swatches of my January Julep Maven It Girl box polishes plus my add ons to show you today. I received three polishes in my box, ordered one add on and also received a free metamorphic top coat in my It Girl box this month. You can see my post about my first look at the box here.

The first polishes I have to show you are Margit, a taupe colored polish with a rosey shimmer to it, and Luna, a pale blue duochrome polish with shards of iridescent glitter in it. I really like Margit. I think it's a perfect Spring color and the pink shimmer is so pretty with the taupe colored polish. This is one coat of Margit on my pointer and pinky fingers. I really thought I was going to love Luna, but unfortunately I don't. Luna has a thick formula, and it just isn't as pretty on the nail as it is in the bottle. Maybe I was too excited about it, I don't know. It just fell flat for me once I had it on. This is two coats of Luna on my middle and ring fingers. Both colors are topped with HK Girl.

Up next is Shelly, a mint creme polish. This color is really nice. The formula is good, this is two smooth coats with one coat of HK Girl. My pictures make this one look a little more blue than it is in person. It definitely leans more towards a mint green in real life.

The last combination I have to show you are Janae, a charcoal grey polish, and Tyra, the metamorphic top coat I received.  This is two coats of Janae on all of my nails with one coat of Tyra on my middle and ring finger. Everything is topped off with HK Girl. I love this combination. Tyra makes such a difference over Janae. It gives it almost a magenta color. 

I'd love to hear which of these polishes or looks is your favorite! Let me know in the comments below. 


  1. I actually really liked Luna. It was thick but I liked the color and the glitter shards. It reminds me of winter :). I was supposed to get the Tilda top coat but ended up with Tyra. I haven't tried Tyra yet but Tilda looks great!

    1. Oh wait I just realized you got Tyra not Tilda haha oops! That's the one I got too so now I'm glad to see mine will change to purple like that! Awesome!

    2. That's awesome that you like Luna! I do think the base color of Luna is really pretty. My order also said Tilda at first, but I received Tyra. I like it though, so I don't mind that. :0)
