My February 2015 Julep Maven box arrived yesterday and I actually just did my nails with one of the polishes it includes! I finally went for the fully customized Julep box option this month because I just couldn’t settle on a set box to get.
If you aren’t familiar, Julep is a monthly nail polish subscription service. They offer a “My Maven” box for $24.99/month which contains $40+ worth of product and polish or “Maven Luxe” for $39.99/month which contains $60+ of prestige products. Both boxes are fully customizable and you have the option to switch between tiers. Subscribers prior to 4/29/14 were grandfathered in at the $19.99/month rate, however, they will need to upgrade to the $24.99 subscription if they want to customize their boxes.
Julep ships via FedEx Smart Post out of Ohio and took just a few days to arrive. They ship from Ohio so it gets to me in Michigan fairly quickly.
In addition to getting the customized box option this month, I also opted for a few add-ons. I really wanted “Ada” which was only available as an add-on (that’s the one I put on my nails) and then ended up getting two more as well. Julep gives you a free gift when you add three add-ons to your monthly box which is totally awesome.
The February 2015 Julep box featured “The Afterglow Collection”. As I mentioned before I opted for a full customized box and I selected the following three items:
~Julep Hazel – Boho Glam ($11.20 / $14): Hazel is a wild violet and bronze duochrome. It’s nice and shimmery and a gorgeous color. It’s one of the first ones from this collection that I noticed, so I knew I had to get it.
~Julep Vivian – Classic With A Twist ($11.20 / $14): Vivian is described as a champagne bubbles full coverage multidimensional glitter and was just brought back from the vault for February. I have a bottle of it already and it is one of my favorite Julep colors ever. It is absolutely stunning in person. At first I would just use it to do an accent nail, but I soon realized that it looks even better if you do it on all your nails. So pretty. I know I have a picture of this on all my nails – I just need to dig it up!
~Jess – Classic with a Twist ($11.20 / $14): Jess is a tawny port crème and is a classic color for winter. It’s deeper out of the bottle than it looks here I should have swatched it) which makes me like it even more.
~Julep Hartleigh – Free Gift ($6.99): All Maven’s who opted in for their boxes this month were gifted “Hartleigh” which is a holographic heart glitter top coat. I am going to put this over a red or a pink for Valentine’s Day.
~Free Hartleigh for Friends: My box also included FIVE free Hartleigh polishes to share with friends! I am guessing that this was my gift for taking three add-ons this month? That would make sense because there wasn’t another gift in the box. I think this was the best free gift they’ve given.
All totaled I came up with a value of $40.59 for my February 2015 Julep Maven Box. I loved the color selections this month, but I loved the add-ons and free gifts even more. A great month by Julep. I’ll post a picture of “Ada” on Instagram tonight once I get my nails cleaned up. It’s so pretty!
