I am a nail polish addict.
I probably wouldn’t be such a hoarder of polish if I didn’t get such a great deal (50% off!) on most polishes at the Pro Supply. I used to paint my nails every Sunday for the week, but I don’t get to do it that much anymore.
I finally broke down and signup up for Julep.com, a beauty website that offers monthly subscription boxes with fantastic polishes and beauty must haves. I’m not really sure what took me so long, but I ordered my first Julep Maven Box and it came yesterday. YAY!
I was super stoked, and after a long day of Nerfing it up, I couldn’t wait to just get home and relax. But of course I had to start dinner, and get everything put away from the afternoon… and there was that purple Julep Maven box, calling my name. Open me, try me, love me. You know you want to…
So… we ate dinner a little late last night. Not much later, just like 30 minutes later than usual, because between thinking about ordering a box for months, and it finally arriving, I was ready to dive in.
Can I just say that I am a sucker for adorable packaging?
And gratuitous compliments?
AND FREE STUFF!!?
That’s right, FREE!
All this stuff was free, and all I had to pay for was a few bucks shipping. That cuticle serum alone is worth $28! I don’t know why I waited so long! I love this stuff! The polish is FANTASTIC, I cannot stress this enough, and I am a hardcore fan of several big name brands, and wow, this stuff is amazing.
The colors I got were Kendra, a dark Army green, and Zelda, a a rose gold shimmer.
The bottles are sleek, and have 8ml of polish in each, a little less than your average bottle, but the color payoff is so fantastic, you don’t even need two coats. In my welcome box I also received 2 foam buffers and a click stick of this amazing cuticle serum that you apply twice a day. It’s wonderful. My hands are always in water, from doing dishes, bathing kids, to washing hair at the salon, so my cuticles are a total wreck.
Within 2 days of using it, I can tell a difference. My cuticles are softer and more supple, and the small cracks and tears I had have begun to heal and no longer hurt.
Julep is really easy to join, and actually pretty fun. You sign up, and take a style quiz to see “What Type of Maven” you are; Boho Glam, Bombshell (that’s me!), Classic with a Twist, It Girl, or Modern Beauty. Each style profile has a different welcome box (valued at $60), and gets different subscriptions each month all for only $19.99. (don’t worry, you can pick and choose if you don’t like what you got). There’s even a Secret Store – Available to Mavens Only where you get sneak peeks and awesome deals and discounts, just for signing up!
So what are you waiting for? Become a Maven!
