The Box: Julep Maven
The Cost: $19.99 a month (free shipping)
The Goods: At least two gorgeous, trendsetting nail colors and cutting-edge beauty products.
As a tribute to leading ladies of both the past and present, this month’s Julep Maven theme is “Red Carpet Ready Colour.” This collection features “rich, smokey colors and glitzy holographics” in addition to the much anticipated Oxygen Nail Treatment and Freedom Top Coat.
So I haven’t ordered a Julep Maven box for awhile now, mainly because the colors didn’t wow me. That all changed when I saw the email for February’s colors. I ended up ordering the Classic with a Twist box plus two add-ons – Ingrid and Jane. The color Claudette is what really drew me to get this month’s box. It only took the words ‘smoky brick red crème’ to reel me in. It didn’t hurt that it also came with the Oxygen Nail Treatment AND the Freedom Polymer Top Coat. Signed, sealed, delivered, I’m yours!Classic with a Twist
Claudette – Smoky brick red crème ($14)
Freedom Polymer Topcoat - Extend the life of your manicure in minutes with Julep’s Freedom Polymer Top Coat. Activated by natural light, this innovative formula creates a unique polymer force field that prevents chipping for days longer than regular top coat, leaving your nails with a gel-like shine (but without gel-removal hassle). ($18)
Oxygen Nail Treatment - Complete nail care and make-up all in one bottle. Made with a patented Hexanal formulation, nails are restructured to a stronger, thicker, and smoother condition in just one stroke. ($18)
Helen – Smoky pastel lavender crème ($14)
Ingrid – Burnt orange crème ($14)
Jane – Full-coverage rose gold multi-dimensional glitter ($14)
I am so impressed with these colors! Above is two coats Claudette followed by the Freedom Polymer Coat. I painted my nails Thursday evening this is how they look today. Usually the shine of my top coat only lasts a couple of days, but this one is still going strong! No chipping either! So yeah, I’m totally diggin’ this month’s box!
If you haven’t signed up to be a Julep Maven I would recommend you give them a try. Get your first box (valued at $60+) for only $0.01 with coupon code PENNY during checkout. You always have the option to change styles, skip the month, or you can always cancel.
