December 2012 American Beauty Julep Maven Box

When I saw the swatches for the December Maven Box, I knew that I had to have ALL THE GLITTERS! It was so hard for me to decide which box to get, but I think I made the right decision in the end by getting the American Beauty Box.

Julia is described as a purple orchid metallic with gold micro-glitter.

Patti is described as full-coverage black multidimensional glitter.

Cindy (my add-on) is described as an emerald green metallic with gold micro-glitter.

This cucumber mint scented scrub warms up on contact like magic. Packed with natural pumice to exfoliate, chilli pepper oil to stimulate circulation, and vitamin E to nourish.

I had to have this warming foot scrub as I am on my feet a lot and the thought of having chilli pepper oil on my feet got them really excited :-)

I have always wanted to create one of these! The ring will never fit me as I am a size 2 finger so I may have to gift my nail polish ring creation to one of my friends. I thought including this DIY project was a wonderful addition to December’s box. I was so hesitant last year to become a Maven because I wasn’t sure if the $19.99 was worth it, but because of the ability to skip months and preview the box before purchasing, I feel like I have some control over my happiness which has made me feel better about keeping my subscription. Now, I need to start wearing some of these polishes! My stash of untrieds is growing at an alarming rate!

      Your size is the average, I've never met an adult human being with the same ring size as myself!
