Here are pictures of the jellies and the liners. Thanks for pointing it out @! I forgot to put the pictures in. The jellies do look interesting.

Hi, I am new. Can you please tell what a jellie is? Thank you!

Hi @! Welcome! The jellies are polishes with a jelly like finish. They are quite sheer but multiple coats will make the color show more. You can also layer them over other polishes and create custom color combos. They are really fun.

I was able to customize a box for the first time this month.  I have been a Maven since 2013 and never upgraded to the customizing, but I always had the "skip" option.  I was really impressed at all the choices available to customize.  I have been loving the holographic polishes, so I ended up choosing a box with both the holo jellies (I hope the formula is good) and the teal eyeliner.

This is one of the first months I've skipped.  I'm not super crazy about the metallic polishes, because they tend to be messy and difficult to work with for me.  I also already have tons of the eye gliders, although I think the electric teal shimmer one was tempting.

My box arrived yesterday - so fast! I picked up both of the holo-jellies and am a little obsessed with them.  I'm wearing Yiyi (the pinky purple one) and can't stop looking at my nails.  It really gorgeous although did take a solid 3-4 coats to get to the depth of colour I wanted. . . which is, I know, about standard for a jelly. . . but before that, I didn't find the purple tone to be coming through much.  The holos really come through the layers of jelly though so there's a lot of depth.  Haven't tried the other one yet.  I also picked up another "It's Balm" in a lighter shade.  Although I didn't originally like them much, working in a school in the winter has changed my tune!

I got my Julep box with both the holo jellies too.  I am also wearing Yiyi and I'm really happy with it.  A couple of coats and it's gorgeous.

    • I'm changing the way I keep track of the time on my No Buy in order to motivate myself more. I didn't realize until today that I'm in month 8 of my second year! Four and a half months until completion of Year 2! I want to finish my mini sample products by June 12, 2020. Here is a partial inventory: Shampoo minis - all used up! Face cream, and face cleanser minis - all used up after a great deal of work and patience!  Mini body scrubs - 1  Mini shower gels - 7 Mini face primers - 8 Mini toners - 9 Mini face masques - 12 I still have to add up mini body creams, hair conditioners, and perfumes. I should reorganize them all to get a new perspective.   
    • Today is the test - will I pass or fail?  Two years ago at this time (end of January 2018, on a Sunday), I discovered Hannah Louise Poston videos for the first time. She had just begun her channel. I recalled cleaning my room while watching the videos and feeling very inspired about my No Buy. I was inspired for an entire year, until ... One year ago at this time (end of January 2019, on a Sunday), I was feeling down. The weather was very bad. There was no good food in the house. I started watching haul type videos. I decided to buy something I didn't need. I felt HORRIBLE and just went on a binge. I tried to hard to get back on the path, but couldn't. I didn't get back on the path until June, when I came back with renewed vigor and had huge success for the rest of the year.  I have been thinking, why don't I just let go again, today? After all, last year I let go and did not ruin myself that much, and then by summer, like a miracle, I was back on No Buy and finished all my goals for the year and more. So I'm using that as justification for cheating. I do have shopping cravings right now. Still, I have not used half of the nice things I got on my binge last year. What will I do? Will I relive 2018 or 2019?  ______ Several hours later. I still want to shop. I cleaned a bit while watching the very first video of Hannah Louise Poston, which was published on January 15, 2018 (Introducing My No-Buy Year!). Watching that brought back a lot of good memories. At the 10:00 mark of this video, Hannah was taking about still being in the exciting early phase of the No Buy, with packages still coming in the mail from the last fling before, and it all being new and not the long haul yet. Then I realized I'm not in the early phase, I'm in the long haul now. I looked at my diaries and realized that I am already halfway through the eighth month of my second No Buy year! It has actually been that long since I began again on June 12! I only have four and a half months to complete in my second No Buy year! I really had no idea I was so far along. So while the calendar year is young, it's August as far as my No Buy Year 2 is concerned. The second year of No Buy goes quickly! I still want to shop, but now I am looking at things differently, and may feel less tempted.   
    • Something amazing for No Buy - Project Pan - Project Use It Up followers - I was reading the comments section of a Hannah Louise Poston video (Lots of Empties, published 1/21/2020) and I heard about a beauty shop called Credo that has a special recycling bin for cosmetics. Apparently if you bring your empties in for them to recycle, they give you rewards points for new things. And you can bring in any empties, not just things from their shop, although they don't take nail polish, nail polish remover, or perfume. Wow, I love that. What an inspiration for us to stay with our projects. There is no Credo store near me though. They are only in the major US cities like New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, etc., but maybe they will expand. Maybe they will find a way to let us mail in our empties? Or maybe I will take a trip someday, if I am good on my No Buy for a long time ... I could get my eyebrows done at their store too. Who knows. They do have an online shop also and they give three samples with orders. They have beautiful things. I think I will sign up with their site and start saving my empties up (instead of putting them in my neighborhood recycling); this may a coming trend! It's inspiring.  I always read the comments sections of No Buy videos on YouTube. I always find great tips and inspiration.
