Julep Maven It Girl October 2013 - Missy, Kendra and Ciara Swatches and Review

October 2013 The Rebel Set

I never posted about my Julep Maven October Box, so I thought I would try to catch up a bit before the new year :)  I chose to receive the It Girl Box this month.  The It Girl Box always has 3 polishes.  This month they were Missy, Kendra and Ciara.

I love the quotes that are included every month and the seasonal candies are not bad either!  I know they are gross, but I love candy corn!

Missy - Titanium Metallic
I'm not usually a big fan of silver polishes, but I really like the finish of this one.  It applied easily and covered well after 2 coats.  Many metallics leave brush strokes, but this one was quite lovely and easy to apply.  I still wouldn't rock a whole mani, but I like it as an accent or it would be lovely for nail art because its not too fussy.

Kendra - Army Green Frost
Kendra was my favorite this month.  I would describe it as a dark, smoky green with a shimmer finish.  I love dark, almost black colors like this one for the Fall and Winter.  I think it would be a nice, subtle polish for Christmas.   It is green without being a crazy, bright emerald green. 

Ciara - Vampy Magenta with Teal Microglitter
I expected Ciara to be my favorite, because it is so unusual.  I did really like this polish, but I felt like it somehow didn't suit me.  It was just a bit off for my skin tone.  I'll have to give it another try in the Spring or Summer maybe.  It was a little thin, but it still covered well with 2 coats.  It was difficult to photograph, but the flash of the teal microglitter was very strong both indoors and out. Ciara is very pretty and different.  I'll have to give it another try when I'm more tan.
