I finally gave in and bought my first Julep Maven box! My friends had told me about Julep nail polish before, and they would rave about how the nail polish was really good quality, had great color choices, and did not require too many coats to get a great opacity. However, I wasn't sure if I really wanted to spend $14 on a bottle of nail polish since I normally buy drugstore nail polish for pretty cheap. Then, I found out about the Julep Maven monthly membership program and I was intrigued. It sounded like such a good deal!
Check out my video on Youtube!
So, basically Julep Maven is a subscription service where you get exclusive access to their limited edition nail colors before everyone else. When you get your Julep Maven box, beauty editors of magazines such as Allure, Vogue, and so on are receiving similar products to review. Each of the Sneak Peek boxes are only $19.99 for over $40 worth of products! When you sign up, you first take a style quiz so they can find out what your personality and taste are like. Then, based on your style quiz results, they match you with a box of goodies! There are 4 different box categories: American Beauty, Boho Glam, Bombshell, and Classic with a Twist.

Now, I realize that a membership service can sound a little scary because you may not be comfortable with putting aside $19.99 every month for Julep items. So, the great thing about this company is that it is so easy to skip a month! All you have to do is elect to skip that month in your account and you won't be charged for that month. Or, if you would rather share your Julep Maven box with a friend one month, then you can even choose to have your box sent to your friend instead of you!
Finally, as a Julep Maven, you get to take 20% off all Julep.com purchases and free shipping on all purchases! Another really great aspect about buying Julep nail polishes is that $1 is donated to organizations that support women for each polish that is bought.
If you are new to Julep Maven like me, then I have some great codes for you! You can use NEWYEAR2012 to get your first box for only $0.01! You can also use the code NEW5 to get your first Intro box for just $5.
There's so many different polishes offered by Julep! So go and check them out!
Here are some pictures of the box I got today! I had chosen a Bombshell box even though my style quiz matched me to an American Beauty box. I just thought that the nail polish colors in the Bombshell box were better for me because I thought they were really pretty and I don't already have similar polish colors.
I love the red box!
