I received my first box today, and I am very happy with it. Here's what I found when I opened the box (it was all in a gift bag, btw)...
And here are the 2 colors I received...
Samantha - bright pink. This one is amazing. It has a jelly-ish finish, but it was opaque in 2 coats.
Zoe - bright copper. Seriously. This is like the color of new pennies. This is one of their not-yet-released fall colors. 3 coats.
This is the "Bombshell" box. Honestly, I had to do a little manipulation to get this box. I took the "style quiz" at least twice, and it each time it came back as "All American Beauty". Well, while that may fit my fashion sense, it's not exactly what I prefer on my nails. So, I chose the strappy shoes instead of the platforms, Chanel as my designer, rather than J.Crew, and picked Colin Farrell over George Clooney (what?) and voila... I'm a Bombshell.
Also, keep in mind that Julep has a few coupon codes for the Maven program floating around. I think there is one on Facebook, and also, when I took the quiz, I got a code in my email box to for 1/2 off my first month. Unfortunately, I had already joined by that point, and I'm still trying to see if I can get that retroactively applied. So be sure to check for those codes before joining.
Even with paying full price, I still think this is a great deal. I know Julep polishes get a bit of a bad rap for being such a small amount (.27 oz, compared to .5 for OPI), but as I have NEVER used a full bottle of polish, I think I'm good. LOL. Plus, there are other goodies, and 20% off all other items that you order (I am eyeing Stella) and free shipping (which when I get free shipping, I feel like I've won the lottery, so that's awesome!).
And, if you refer your friends to Julep, you will get $15 when they become a Maven as well. You can join the Julep Maven program on their website, or by clicking here.
I paid for my own membership to the Maven program. However, the links within this post are affiliate links. I will receive $15 when you join by using my link. When you join, you will get your own link.
