Julep Maven Starter Box Review

I received my Julep starter box today, just two days after subscribing! For those of you who aren't familiar with Julep, they are a subscription service offering three full size nail polishes or beauty products for $19.99 a month. Each box also contains a little surprise item. One of the unique features that Julep offers is the ability to preview your box each month. Then, you have the option to receive the box, send it to a friend, or skip the month altogether. I was very excited to try Julep, because their nail polishes are free of the harsh chemicals found in a lot of popular drugstore brands and are made in USA.

I received the "It Girl" starter box. My style quiz matched me up with the "Boho Glam" box, but I opted to switch for a box with three polishes rather than two and a beauty product. I also added on a mystery polish for $4.99. I love that they offer an add-on feature! The three "It Girl" colors I got were Carly, Simone, and Stefani. Carly is bright blue, fun, and sparkly. Simone (my favorite of the box) is a pastel lavender shade that's perfect for spring. Stefani is a charcoal color with a hint of gold shimmer to bring it to life. My mystery color was Camille, a simple glitter polish that gives a little sparkle by itself and will jazz up any other color. All four are colors I will definitely wear. Since I'm an extraordinarily impatient person, I immediately applied a double-coat of each color to four nails so that I could see how the colors looked on. The polishes all looked great, even without a base or top coat. They also dried quickly, which is a must for a new mom. Not three minutes after I applied the polish, Froggy woke up from his nap. All four nails still look great, even after a diaper change and a feeding! My box also included a sample of a warming foot scrub. The perfect thing for a busy mama who needs a little pampering. I can't wait to try it!

I loved my first Julep box! If you would like to try Julep, I would really appreciate you going through my referral link. Use the code FREEMAVEN at checkout to try your first box for free!
