Nail Polish and Beauty Review


I’m so excited to share these products with the world. As someone who is exceptionally frugal, I feel that getting my nails done by the professionals is just not the best use of my money. Don’t get me wrong… I’m definitely a fan of manicures and pedicures, but they don’t last long enough for me to justify paying the $20 to $60 bucks just just a day or two of un-chipped color. I recently discovered the Julep Maven program, and am SO pleased with how well it’s working out.

Perhaps the best part: your first box is FREE! That’s what reeled me in, and now I’m hooked. I signed up for a free box and paid just $2.99 shipping for over $40 dollars worth of polish and product. Simply take a look at all of the polish colors and choose which box you want. It came with a rejuvenating cuticle serum, two nail polishes and two buff blocks.

But for a limited time, Julep is offering a deluxe box full of $80 worth of products and polish including three nail polishes, a double sided eye liner with sharpener, a lip gloss plus two buff blocks. Pay only $2.99 shipping for the Summer Brights Welcome Box.

Given how incredibly exited I was to get FREE beauty products, I was pleasantly surprised how quickly it arrived at my door. I was even more excited to find how bright and true to color the polishes are. I got to work on creating a nail “masterpiece”… I use quotations because I am by no means a nail artist. I did a few Pinterest searches to find some creative ideas and went with a sort of sparkle fade. Here’s my results:


This picture was taken ON THE 5TH DAY! Now that is some serious staying power considering the amount of times my hands are in and out of water and worse every day (shower, bathe the boy, dishes, cleaning products, washing after changing diapers, etc.) I also did my toes, and am happy to report that there are still no chips AFTER TWO WEEKS! I’ll spare you the photo of my toes…

If I have not convinced you yet to try it out, here’s something else that’s awesome. One of their missions is to spread the word that “beauty is about connection, not competition.” They started out as a group of girlfriends who worked together to create something great. To carry that forward, they donate a portion of every sale to organizations that empower women. How awesome is that??

HOW IT WORKS: Click here to be taken to the style quiz. They’ll ask you a few questions about your personal style and make a box recommendation. If you’re not a fan of their suggestion, you can change your style profile. Add the box of your choice to your cart, use the promo code, and pay only $2.99 for some awesome stuff. Each month after you sign up, you’ll receive an email when it is time to customize your box. Starting just this month, you can swap out items that you don’t care for and swap in items that you love. Each box is customized to your liking and mailed out around the 27th of each month. You can also choose to add on extras, or just shop other items at a 20% discount with free shipping.

TO CANCEL: If for whatever reason you decide to cancel, simply call the number listed on the website or on the information that you receive with your first order. They won’t hassle you, ask you a million questions or read you a ten minute long disclosure. You can cancel at any time, with no guilt. My husband got a box to give as a gift and when he called to cancel his subscription, the entire call from start to finish only took about 2 minutes.

So, how about it? Are you ready for some free stuff? Click here for the Limited Edition Summer Brights Welcome Box, or here if the limited edition box has run out. Hurry before they run out!
