Julep Maven

I've never been big on doing my own manicures and pedicures. I've always been more of a salon girl, but having a newborn and a toddler, I've been trying to find other alternatives. Recently, I've been hearing a lot of talk about Julep Maven. Julep is a company that is powered by girlfriends[1. According to their About Julep page.]. They are based out of Washington, and they also make nail colors that are all named after women who inspire them.

The Julep Maven program is a subscription beauty box. During the signup process, you are required to complete a quiz, which will determine your style profile. There are five profiles: one that focuses on beauty products; one that focuses on nail colors; and three that are a mixture of beauty products and nail colors. On the 20th of each month, they send out a box preview. During the preview period, you have the option to not receive a box; or to try another style and/or order add-ons for your box.

I tried a subscription box service in the past, and it was a pretty bad experience[2. Wittlebee...]. I was a little hesitant about trying another, but so far, I've heard zero negative things about Julep. Besides... it's a nice way to build up my nail color selection for when Ivy gets old enough to have her nails painted.

I received my first box at no cost. It was received within a week of ordering, which was awesome processing time for cross country delivery. The contents in the box were very neatly packaged.

I received Barbara[3. A glittery purple...], Meryl[4. A grey...], and cuticle oil.

I love the look of Julep nail colors. It's just the right consistency that polish should be. I was able to achieve a great look with just one coat, and a perfect look with two. My manicure held up for over a week[5. Until I started spring cleaning with no gloves.]. When I redo it, I'll take pictures to add to the post. I'm definitely excited for my next box.

If you're in the market for some nail colors to add to your collection, I definitely recommend Julep.

P.S. This is not a paid post and I was not asked to formally review this product. All opinions are my own.

    You know I love Julep! I just picked out my box and add-ons (I always do three add-ons a month, I'm a bit of an addict, but the polishes are only $5!) for April and I cannot wait. Hope you love Julep as much as I do!

      Julep is amazing! I just got the email for April, so I'm going to look into add-ons this month. I get so overwhelmed when I see all of their colors.
