Julep Maven #1 : Jul. ’12

Just under a week ago, I received my very first Julep Maven box! Being a Julep Maven means subscribing to receive a box of Julep nail polishes and other goodies each month. The monthly fee is $19.99 but you are guaranteed to receive at least $40 worth of goodies. I decided to give this subscription service a try when I learned that I can receive my first box for only $0.01 by using the current promo code when signing up.

I was also convinced by how the sites features the options to skip that month’s box without being charged, send that box as a gift or even swap boxes to try another style’s monthly box.

To find out what your Julep Maven style is and to subscribe to receive nail goodies monthly, click here: Become a Julep Maven. If you use the promo code MAVENINTRO you’ll receive your first box for only $0.01! Not too shabby!! (If you click my link when signing up, I can earn the one credit I need to receive one of my boxes free… click, sign up and help a sister out… it’ll only cost you a penny because if you dont like the first box, you can cancel at anytime!)

My Julep Maven style is that of an It Girl. so this is what I received this month:

3 Julep nail polishes: Lily (fuchsia), Daisy (lemon yellow) and Sasha (melon). I also received a set of toe dividers. Not a bad introduction.

***Please excuse the messy paint jobs pictured below.*** I quick painted my nails to take these pics only to remove the polish to be replaced by one that is “work appropriate”

Julep nail polish – Sasha – fresh, cantaloupe melon creme.

My favorite of the three colors was Sasha. I rocked this color when I saw The Dave Matthews Band over the weekend. It covers well after just one coat, but looks even better after the second coat. It also dried quickly as did the other two colors.

Julep nail polishes – Lily – Sizzling fichsia creme & Daisy – Bright lemo yellow creme

I like how bold both Lily and Daisy are and will most definitely be rocking these both. However, neither covers particularly well and takes at least three coats. Both dry quickly but one Lily dries, it isn’t very shiny.

I may be new to being a Julep Maven, but I have already taken them up on their offer for me to select a different box for the month of August.

Classified as an It Girl, I was due to receive the above pictured box for August. After checking out when the other boxes would contain, I opted to receive the Boho Glam box.

Although I’m not getting the third polish, I think I’ll like the two polishes in this Boho Glam box better than those in the It Girl box.

You may as well get a set of three adorable, high quality products for a penny by signing up now and using the current promo code MAVENINTRO. Just click here, take the style quiz and enter the promo code at check-out. Become a Julep Maven
