Julep Maven American Beauty Box October 2012 - Eloise and Sabrina Swatches and Review

 This month, I chose to receive the Julep Maven American Beauty Box.  I really wanted to try out the Quick Dry Polish Drops and these 2 colors really appealed to me.
 I know everyone seems to be over the crackle look, but I still really like it, especially for Halloween!  
This is what I saw when I opened my box.  Yum, I love candy corn!  I never buy a bag, though.  A whole bag is a bit much.  I feel like candy corn needs to find you and it usually finds me somehow :)
 Errr, from what I have seen on other blogs this was supposed to be a black glitter and an orange glitter, but I got 2 orange glitters.  Oh well, it was still a nice little extra :)
 Sabrina - Orange Shimmer Crackle
Eloise - Smokey Indigo Blue Creme
Quick Dry Polish Drops
 A closer look at Sabrina & Eloise
 The sun would not come out today so all photos are indoor with flash.  They are color accurate, though :)
 This is 2 easy coats of Eloise.  I really love this color!
 I added 1 coat of Sabrina and it crackled nice and evenly.  I have used a few tricky, finicky crackles in my day so I was happy that this one was easy.  Nothing worse than applying a trouble crackle and ruining a perfectly good mani!
 I really like this combo.  I think Sabrina is really festive for October and Eloise will get lots of use this Fall and Winter!  Sabrina has so many possibilities for a quick, easy Halloween mani! I want to try it over white, black, green, purple... oh maybe a skittle mani!  I have not tried the Quick Dry Drops yet, but I will let you know how they are when I do :)

    1. It really is! I don't usually like blues on me, but this one is gorgeous!

  2. Oooh I love this blue!!!
    I'm not a Maven... I don't want because I KNOW I will get hooked!!! Haha :))

    1. Oh you will get hooked for sure! I couldn't resist getting my first box for a penny and now I'm hooked. I like that they give you the option to skip months, but so far I only skipped one month.
