Julep Maven Box – January 2012 Review – Monthly Nail Polish Subscription Boxes


Julep Maven January Colors

I decided to splurge on Julep this month and went with the entire Neons and Nudes collection for January. I also ordered 3 sets of add-ons – I officially went overboard on nail polish this month!


The Box: Julep Maven

The Cost: $19.99 a month (For an extra $30 you can get the whole collection)

COUPONCODE: Use code JULEPVIP to get your first box for $.01

This is a really cool idea, but part of me just can’t get over that it looks exactly like a glue stick!

This is my first set of add ons. Every month Julep allows you to add up to 3 additional items at discount pricing to your order. Again, I totally went a little crazy with the polish this month!

Verdict: I was so happy to see bright shades for a change in January, and I’m really happy with this box. The only thing I probably won’t use is the cuticle hand stick since I already have the Julep Cuticle Oil and love it. What did you think of this month’s box?

  1. I subscribed to their box (see my first unboxing here … ). I’m anxious to try out the quality, and it looks like you got some fab colors! 🙂

    I may need to test them out a bit more because they seem to have an amazing collection of colors, and I really like that their bottles are easy to store (unlike other polishes!).

  2. I understand about the glue stick.. thought the same thing but I love, love, love this product.. pls try it. I liked the cuticle oil, but for at my nightstand or coming in from walking my dog… I will put a little on the fingers and backs of my hands of the stick. The heat from your body kind of makes it melt into your skin and cuticles.. works really well. Oh.. did I mention that I love it? 🙂 Thanks for your blog.. if you see me on an episode of subscripton box Intervention… you will know why.

  3. I feel impressed by the products information on that website. There are a large amount of good options

  4. You did go overboard and I love it. Very pretty colors. I got my Boho Glam box on New Years Eve but I have been so busy I haven’t had a chance to open it yet.
