Julep Maven Subscription Box Review – May 2014
Julep Maven is a monthly nail polish and beauty subscription box. They make all their own products, so subscribers get a good value each month – over $40 retail worth of product for $24.99 a month. (Julep recently raised their prices, but apparently there will be more customization too. Current subscribers will keep the $19.99 rate).
Each month Julep releases a new collection on the 20th, and you can decide which box you want, you can upgrade to the entire collection, or you can skip that month. (They recently changed their skip policy – If you’re a new subscriber, you earn a skip every 6 months).
This month I decided to go with the It Girl box!

This box marked the debut of the Julep Plié Wand – a tool designed to make it much easier to paint your nails!
Julep Plié Wand Set – Value $25
I wasn’t expecting too much with this tool – but I’m very pleased. I especially like that you can twist the wand to get the perfect angle. (The wand attaches to any Julep nail polish – just remove the outer polish cap!)
Julep Nail Color in Kam – Value $14
Julep Nail Color in Jules – Value $14
I think my favorite type of polish is creme, so these polishes are both perfect for me.
Verdict: I paid $20 for this box and received about $53 worth of nail polish items. I’m really pleased with the Julep Plié Wand and love my nail polish color picks – so this month is a win for me!
What do you think of the Julep Plié Wand? I’ve only tried it for basic nail polish painting, but I’m curious to hear how it works with nail art.
