Julep Hooray For May! Mystery Box Review

I picked up my mystery box from the post office today and here's what was waiting for me.

Cute packaging as always.  One of the polishes was in an organza gift bag if you wanted to make it a present for a friend.

I got six polishes.  Nina (It Girl) is a neon orange creme.  Fiona (Boho Glam) is an electric lime green neon creme.  Lime isn't the first colour that comes to my mind for this polish... more like pea soup.  Charlie (It Girl) is a bright yellow creme.  Teresa (Boho Glam) is an opaque pink pearl frost.  I rather like this as a neutral colour.  Jordan (Boho Glam) is a full-coverage silver gunmetal multi-dimensional glitter.  This is definitely my favorite of the six.  Finally, Clara (It Girl) is an opaque peach creme.  Another very neutral colour.

Overall I love the three on the right but honestly, I'm not a big fan of the three on the left.  Oranges and yellows don't go well with my skin tone at all and pea soup green is just not a pretty colour in my opinion.  Also, it would have been nice if there had only been one super neutral colour in mix and perhaps some more cool toned colours to round out the selection.  Had I known in advance that these were the colours I would receive I probably would not have purchased the box, but that's the whole point, it's a mystery!
