I love getting packages, and I love nail polish. It would appear that the Julep Maven program was designed specifically for people like me. : )
I had actually heard a lot about the program on YouTube, but it never really interested me. My thinking was I would rather spend money on nail polish of my own choosing, not some random assortment in a box.
A few months ago my local Sephora started carrying a select number of Julep polishes. I picked one up, and was really impressed with the formula. I looked into the Maven program on their website and learned a couple of things.
First, there is a quiz to take that "defines" your style. I got Boho Glam (others include It Girl, Classic with a Twist, American Beauty, and Bombshell). Each month Julep puts together five separate boxes with different polishes and beauty products. You get a preview email, and based on the polish shades you can switch your style. In September I decided to choose Classic with a Twist (I added the green polish for an additional charge). If none of the boxes strike your fancy, you can skip the month with no charge.
Right now I'm really enjoying both the service and the Julep polishes. I thought I would share nail swatches of my September Julep Maven box. : )
Brandt is a soft black crème. My go-to black is very deep, so it's nice to now have a softer option.
I love the description for Sophie - a “chic truffle mushroom crème.” This is one of my favorite shades to wear when I want to feel put-together.
Hoch was definitely the highlight of the box for me. It was a shade from another one of the styles that caught my eye, so I added it to my order. The formula is fantastic and I love how it looks on the nails.
The box also included a mascara that I will be talking about in my next favorites video. : )
