I'm most excited about that too.  I'm addicted to Seche, but I don't like how sometimes your nail color "pops" off because of the shrinkage... wonder if Freedom will perform better.  Super psyched!

Right. A lot of people are complaining that Freedom is so expensive compared to Seche (Seche Vite = $6-10 for 14mL and Freedom = $15 for 8mL), but Seche hasn't reformulated yet to be 3-free, and all of Julep's products have been 3+ free. If it works as well as Seche in terms of drying time and shininess, I'd be willing to shell out for it.

I have major shrinkage with the Freedom topcoat :( /emoticons/sad@2x.png 2x" width="20" height="20" /> I wanted to love it but I just couldn't get it to work. I love the idea of it but it performs the same as Seche (mega shrinkage). I'm still not skipping though, I'm really excited about the oxygen treatment :D /emoticons/biggrin@2x.png 2x" width="20" height="20" />

I just realized I need a new topcoat last night (for some reason, the only one I like is Julep's fast drying topcoat) so I'm super excited especially since now I don't need to shell out an extra amount to get a new topcoat. Although I did want to try to skip this month but that is not happening. Hopefully, march will suck ;) /emoticons/wink@2x.png 2x" width="20" height="20" />

That's my only issue with Seche other than the fact that it smells exactly like my model paints - that it's not 3 free yet. If Freedom works as well as Seche, I'll use that as my alternating topcoat - if it's good, I don't mind spending more if the product warrants it.

I'm SO excited. I need a new top/base coat and really want to try these both. I'd pay for the month with just those two things alone, haha. I'm anxious to see all the colors now. I don't have many holographic/duochrome colors :) /emoticons/smile@2x.png 2x" width="20" height="20" />

yeah, that's what I was thinking. I was wondering if you could combine it with the maven discount, but if you can't, then definitely not worth it :C

I'm not sure if you can't combine it with your maven discount- it just says that you can use it towards your monthly box. Hmmmmm I wonder...

I tried it with mine and it's working just fine! Weird.

It's good until July though so I'm going to hang onto mine for a little while. I always end up buying stuff and then it goes on sale the next day! lol.

Ya me either.

I'm letting my birchbox go but I signed up for Beauty Army, and SquareHue, and I have Julep.

Which I keep telling myself I'll skip but then I never do!

So excited about these months colors. I skipped January because I bought so much stuff from their December sales but looks like I'll be a bad girl in February.

Here are the February colors:

Oh gosh. It's going to be a tough choice this month! I'm classic with a twist and usually stick with that, but I think those are my least favorite this time. I think I may need to wait for the swatches and will probably end up adding on an extra or two as well!

The swatches are up on the Julep blog and so are the add-ons. Im an it-girl but I want the base coat and the holos are very tempting not to mention the add-ons.
