Jewel-toned fashion is probably my favourite Fall trend. And the…
Alright, let’s just get right into it. This month’s Julep Maven box contained the much talked about, coveted, questioned… Plié Wand. You may remember a few months ago when Julep held a crowd-funding campaign for this new innovative tool ($140,000 raised from 6,200 fans). Sadly I didn’t jump on the campaign in time but luckily all worked out and we received the tool this month!
But first, the polishes!
Kam – Vintage spearmint crème. $11.20 Maven price
Jules – Warm powder pink crème. $11.20 Maven price
I had high hopes for this one, as I always do with light pastels. But again, it was a bit of a let down. It took 3 coats to near opacity and it was quite streaky. Not as bad as some that never reach full opacity or pool at the sides though. Overall a great match for the Kam polish.
NOW FOR… drumroll… THE PLIE WAND SYSTEM!
It all starts with the cap.
MY THOUGHTS on the Plié Wand system: I actually really enjoyed using it! For my dominant (right) hand it was a little cumbersome since I’m pretty good at applying polish to my lefty. But wow, what a change it made when using my non-dominant (left) hand. I felt almost ambidextrous and had very little cleanup after, which is rare.
The Plié Wand system is $20 USD for Mavens ($25 for regular folk) and there are also some cool add-ons like a dotting tool and striping brush that connect to the wand (I have mine on order!).
You can learn more about the system from Julep’s own Jane Park!
