A friend of mine recently signed up to be a Julep Maven, and as soon as I saw her box of beautiful Julep nail polishes, I was intrigued. She was one step ahead of me, and already emailed me her discount link. Just like that, I was a Julep Maven too.
Basically, your first box is free. You pay about $2 and change for shipping and handling. I figured I didn’t have much to lose. I got my first Maven Box in the mail late last week. Here’s what I got:
- Julep Bare Body Milk lotion
- Sydney, a red-orange polish from the Bombshell style profile
- Lena, a green polish from the Boho Glam style profile
- Braiden, a silver-gray sparking polish from the It Girl style profile
About these style profiles: I’ve gone ahead and picked It Girl due to the fact that three polishes come in each box, while the other profiles offer 2 polishes and a beauty product.
The polishes, so far, are wonderful! I was super worried about these tiny bottles, but rest assured: the brush is full-size. Two coats are recommended, but the color looks brilliant after just one. I went ahead and did two anyway, though.
I paired Sydney with Lena to give them a go. At first I was worried this combo might look too Christmas-y, but I think I achieved the appropriate amount of fiesta-y needed for the fleeting summer. I love a good red-orange right now and Sydney is slightly redder than Revlon’s Siren, which is my usual orange. As for Lena, it’s uncanny how it worked out– Lena is very close to Essie’s summer color Ruffles and Feathers, which I resisted buying just the day before my box arrived. It was fate!
Julep polishes are on the pricey side, and at $25 per month, so is this subscription box. I’m still experimenting with what the Maven membership can offer me. The best perk so far is discounted pricing on online orders!
There will be a bit more customization involved in my next box, so stay tuned for what it brings!
