  1. Does anyone know when they will ship these boxes? I haven’t received an email yet with shipping info.

  2. I wanted to get the It Girl colors, but Julep isn’t showing me the same options. 🙁 They look so lovely, too

  3. Such pretty colors this month! I went with It Girl, as well – I’ve been wanting a nice mint green for my collection, and I love pale pink polishes, so it could not be more perfect. I’m intrigued by the creativity tools, but I think I’ll wait for some reviews before picking them up – they seem like a great idea, but I’m curious how well they really work. And I’m cautiously excited to try the new wand.

  4. I upgraded to the polish lovers set. My first upgrade ever! Since I did the crowd funding my box will still include the Plie wand, which I’m excited to try. Also added the creativity tools and a two pack of the snap tops/brushes so I can try the Plie wand with non-Julep polish. Looks like a great month to me!

    BTW, for those that had issues with add on polish and creativity kits being out of stock, it appears everything is now back in stock.

  5. The Boho Glam colors are really pretty and I finally have enough points for a fee box, but I have no use for the wand (never hand a problem painting my nails, guess it’s patience and years of experience)…guess it’ll be a skip month for me!

  6. Jumped off the cliff and got the entire set and tools. Really attracted to pale colors right now and Julep always has a twist of something new with every month. Excited to try out the plie wand.

    • I did the same thing! I am loving all of the light colors right now and interested in trying out the wand too. I skipped last month since the colors were so-so to me and I couldn’t see myself using them. This month is much better! While I’m not too bad at painting my own nails, a tool to make it easier sounds good to me.

  7. I chose the Bombshell box with Jules and Ramona as add-ons. 😀 Can’t wait to try them all out!!

  8. As always I was unable to control myself and I got the $55 upgrade. I’m a sucker for Julep polish!

  9. I got Boho Glam and added on Laree and the dotting/striping set! I just love the golden undertones!

    • I got the same, minus the dotting because it was sold out. I really loved Paulette because of the gold undertones and also really loved the bombshell set. Sadly as an add on Paulette was sold out already. So I went with the pack that would get me that polish and added Larue. I have some kind of similar to Saaya, or at least that is what I am trying to convince myself of. I chose an add on for a friend (oxygen set) and then got myself the polymer top coat. I hope it is as good as they say it is!

      • I love the polymer top coat! I use it every time and I think it is great.

  10. This month looks…. so super boring. lol, I just don’t like it. So… dull. I joined because I actually liked Julep’s makeup. I don’t care about polish. I know that’s weird. I thought they have been introducing new makeup in Julep for a long time, so I finally decided to sign up and… this. D: fml

    • You can chose to go with the Modern Beauty set. It has the Glycolic hand scrub which I have hear amazing things about and the hand cream which I have and is very nice. Not makeup this time, but not polish. I keep hoping for another month with glosses because they are my favourite!

      • I tried the handscrub I got it in my mystery box. I’m probably one of the only people that did not like it. Just seemed overly drying to me, did not notice my hands being softer, and I did not like how fragrance that lingers.

        I have a gloss that I’m not going to use, hoping to trade it. Yet I’m still on the waiting lists for trades.

        Julep is so addicting!

  11. I went with “It Girl” too, and I added Jeanne (all three colors are wonderfully spring to me) and the creativity kit! I cannot wait to use the Plie wand and striping brush!! I have always wanted to be creative with my nails but I have a hard time actually doing any of it, and I don’t like getting my nails done, so I’m super excited.

  12. This is my first month with Julep. What type of stuff is usually in the secret store?

  13. I went with Boho Glam and added on Maddy, Laree, and the Freedom Polymer topcoats since I was already planning on buying that. I can’t wait.

  14. I got one without the want because it seems to be a waste. It looks like you would have to clean it every time you use it. Who has time for that? And the mess…

    • What? It snaps onto each nail polish’s cap. What would you have to clean?

    • If I understand it right, it snaps on the caps, so you use the existing brush for each color. No cleaning.

      I really wanted the creativity kit, but it sold out quickly.

      • It was sold out this morning when I first logged in but I checked again this afternoon and it was back so you may want to look again.

        • Got it! Thanks, Senny.

      • Now that makes sense. lol. I was wondering how it would work.

  15. I went with Boho Glam because I loved one of the colours. Not sure about the wand at all though. Don’t think I will use it.

    • I read about the wands but don’t think I need one. I’m ambidextrous (although I write left-handed) and find that I don’t actually have any trouble painting the nails on either hand. I guess that’s unusual?

      Like a lot of the colors this month, though!

      • I agree with you on the wands. I read all about it, for me my hands are small just seems I would mess my nails up more with it. Most the $19.99 maven nail polish sets had the wand, so I ended up ordering the May Color Crush. Not thrilled with the blue nail polish, however I’d probably use it more than the wand. The other 2 polishes I like more.
