I don't need more nail polish. Ok, I don't need most of this stuff but with nail polish, as much as I love it, I can control myself. Mostly. So I didn't subscribe for Julep Maven for months even though it was calling me, trying to lure me into its deadly, sparkly, pretty grips. Now I've been gotten! Well, sort of. Here's the deal: Julep is a nail polish brand out of Washington that offers a monthly subscription program. For $19.99 a month, members (Mavens) receive $40 worth of products: nail polish and other items. The products are "hand-selected" for each Maven profile. How do you know your profile? You take a quiz simple quiz. My quiz told me that I'm a Classic with a Twist. Membership also means 20% off regular prices, access to super secret sales, and points from referrals and purchases that can be used towards monthly sub fees.
What really got me was the discount code that allowed me to get my welcome box for $0.01. A single, solitary penny. And I saw that I can opt out the months there aren't colors I needwant so really, how could I resist? Alright, enough with the telling! Time for some showing!
This is the literature I received. Read it if you'd like more details about being a Julep Maven or the Classics with Twists.
And now the goods:
Calm down. I don't know about ever, but it was pretty darn good. This little packet was included as an extra with the polish remover. It was thick enough for my winter dry, slightly callused feet but was not one bit greasy. It contains alpha hydroxy acids, shea butter, coconut oil and vitamin E. My tootsies did feel smoother after just a single use and it had a very pleasant scent as well. Would I buy it? Yes, I would. I liked it.
Polish of the Week.
As for Jodie, I'm sure she will eventually make an appearance as a Polish of the Week.
Not too shabby for $5, huh? Unfortunately, the sneak peak of January's colors doesn't have me enthused so don't hold your breath for the next Julep entry unless you can hold it for a really long time. I will likely skip this month and wait to see what February's offerings are.
