The Whole Shebang: Julep Mystery Polish Boxes in Metallics, Brights, and Glitter/Shimmers

Disclaimer: I purchased this.
I ordered all 3 of the Julep August mystery boxes, as I had a $50 gift code due to the No Excuses sunscreen not being included in my August Maven order. I admit that it was burning a hole in my pocket and when I ordered these, I actually didn't notice these were polish only boxes. Whoops. The boxes arrived Saturday and fortunately there were only two polishes that I already own, so I lucked out. Let's start with the metallics.
The boxes were said to include at least $100 worth of product, and the inclusion in each box of nail stickers made that claim true.  Each box had 7 polishes, so 7 x $14 = $98, so the stickers round it up to meet the $100 claim. Considering I paid only $10 for all the boxes using my gift code, my price per polish is 47 cents, a total steal. I do already own Missy, so repeat #1.
  • Penny: burnished bronze metallic (Muse Montreal, August 2015)
  • Marika: stone matte metallic (New Year, Fresh Look, January 2016)
  • Rachael: graphite shimmer (Kisses, London, September 2015
  • Sawyer: copper patina molten (Friendsgiving, November 2014)
  • Joss: ripe fig duochrome (New Year, Fresh Look, January 2016)
  • Missy: titanium metallic (The Rebel Set, October 2013)
  • Mia: greenish silver metallic (Glitterati, December 2013)
Next are the visually pleasing brights. Repeat #2 is the scarlet with gold shimmer Suzanne.
  • Danica: blue violet iridescent chrome (Paradise, April 2015)
  • Lee: spitfire red creme (Set Sail, May 2015)
  • Suzanne: scarlet with gold microshimmer (The Switchup, November 2015)
  • Sam: limeade creme (Into the Sea back from the vault, July 2016)
  • Jenna: tangerine burst creme (Paradise, April 2015)
  • Connie: hot magenta plum creme (Paradise, April 2015)
  • Ari: extreme fuschia vivid sheer (Shine On, April 2016)
The last box is a mixtures of shimmers and glitters.
  • Queen Anne: lilac glitter (3 year commemorative color, August 2014)
  • Judy: moonbeam iridescent chrome (All Night Long, December 2015)
  • Roxanne: black and gold jagged glitter (Dancing in the Night, November 2015)
  • Oscar: 3-D gold glitter (Oscar, February 2012)
  • Tish: silver bell microglitter (All Night Long, December 2015)
  • Pepper: cornflower multidimensional shimmer (Rainbow Bright, May 2016)
  • Neely: sparkling cranberry glitter (Raindeer Games Duo, November 2014)
By the way, if you are ever looking for a site with a comprehensive listing (month/year, collection, color, finish) and pictures of all 784 Julep polishes, go to http://julep.ariaevans.org/.  So nicely done! 

Did anyone else get any of the August mystery boxes, and if so, what did you think?
