Classic With a Twist {July Colors}

The July Maven box came with two fun colors that are great for summer, but will transition well into fall (side note: isn't it funny that we start mentally preparing for fall halfway through June? I don't know how I feel about it.) The two colors are "Alaina" and "Cassie." 

"Alaina" is a great grey color with some warm undertones. "Alaina" reminds me a lot of Essie's "Chinchilly" so I'm sure it'll be one of my go to colors this fall. I love the look of grey nail polish and definitely count it as a wardrobe staple once the weather cools down.

"Cassie" is a fun orangey-peach color with a very thin application. I thought it would be a fun, thick orange, but it's actually very transparent. The pictures show how my nails looked after three coats, which will give you an idea of how thin it is. It's still a very pretty color, but I'm not sure how frequently I'll wear this one. I think it would look much better on some of my tanner friends, since the color kind of melted into my skin tone. #paleproblems.

What do you think about July's Maven box? Do you love "Alaina" as much as I do?
