Last Friday, I got my very first official Julep Maven monthly box. I am officially addicted. This is such a great service!! August marks the first anniversary of the Maven program, so they shared the love with the Mavens! Anyone who is as obsessed with polish as I am would absolutely love it! If you didn’t read my first post about Julep, here’s just a quick recap of what its all about: For $20 a month, you get to choose a box from 5 style profiles. You fill out a style profile, and you can either get the box for that style or choose a different one. Mavens get the newest colors Julep has to offer before anyone else, and at unbelievable deals! The polishes retail at $14 a piece, and each box includes 2 polishes and another product, usually a new product. The It Girl box is the only exception to this. It is a box for straight up polish lovers, and includes 3 polishes. Sweet! So here’s what I got for August:
Pretty pink Happy Birthday box! 🙂
Nice little note inside the box!
And here is what came in my box! My style profile results were It Girl, and I also chose that for my intro box, but this time I switched it up and chose Classic with a Twist, because I really liked the colors. I love the options that Julep gives you. You actually have the ability to choose what you get, so you are never disappointed. You also have the option to add-on up to 3 of either the new product for that month, or any of the colors featured, for $5 a piece. I got a free add-on as it was my first month, so I added 2 polishes from other boxes that I really liked. So, time to break it down. My box came with 2 polishes and the new product for the month, the polish remover. It’s acetone-free, and comes with an awesome pump dispenser (no more spilling all over myself!). It’s a great product–removes polish easily and conditions nails so they feel nice and clean and wonderful! Also, the tote was a fun little bonus! I have turned my into a bag to hold all my polishes and manicure supplies! And NOW, on to the polishes!!
On the bottom left are my add-on polishes, Isla and Melanie. The top right polishes are the ones included in my box, Alfrie and Felicity. As you can see, the new colors for the month are metallics and chromes. LOVE! I LOVE these colors! They are all great! and here’s what they look like on (please excuse my awful paint job, I wasn’t really taking my time.)
From left to right:
Melanie — I love this color! It goes on very sheer with the first coat, but after a couple coats, it’s so pretty. I would describe it as almost a metallic denim color.
Isla — This is the only one I am mildly skeptical of, only because it seemed to be kind of streaky when I applied it, but I’m sure if I actually took my time, I would look great! It’s a really pretty bright pearl color.
Felicity — Really pretty yellow-gold.
Alfrie — This one is my favorite! Gorgeous dark metallic royal purple color!
So there you go, my August Julep haul. Seriously, if you love nail polish, this service is for you! Check it out!!
