  1. I just got mine! I’m pretty pleased since there were no duplicates (for me), and I have a *lot* of Julep polish. lol
    — Yuki (snowy heart glitter top coat)
    — Valentina (pink chevron glitter top coat)
    — Margit (mushroom w/rose shimmer)
    — Myriam (casino red creme)
    — Jessie (deep Kalamata creme)
    — Eye Glider in Navy Smoke
    — Lip Gloss in Posh
    Everything fits in with the Valentine’s Day theme, except Jessie. And the clutch is adorable!

  2. This is what I got in my box:

    Congrats Duo:
    – Siena (goldtone)
    – Fifi (pale pink)

    Mystery Box:
    – Joanne (eggplant purple creme)
    – Logan (dark purple shimmer)
    – Fifi (pale pink)
    – Valentina (dark pink chevron glitter top coat)
    – Yuki (light pink hearts and confetti top coat)
    – Lip Gloss in Posh (dark red)
    – Eye Liner in Navy Smoke

    Kind of disappointed I got Fifi twice, but the pink/purple colors I guess do fit in with the Valentine theme. I’ll probably end up swapping/gifting most of it.

    • This is exactly what I received as well. 🙂

  3. Got mine today!

    Not counting the free “getcolor” polish I got 5 polishes, 1 eyeliner, 1 lip gloss, and the clutch.

    Of the 5 polishes I like the 2 spoiled polishes, and have no use for the other 3 (1 I have already, 2 I dislike)– they will be gifted. BUT for $25 I got the clutch, liner, gloss, 3 polishes I like, and 3 to gift. So I am happy!

    • PS: Wish I had seen this to warn people off of “flirty”. That’s the one with Bette, right? Bette is the only polish I have found unusable from julep– really thin formula. I hope they fixed it or I got a bad batch!

      The Congrats deal was awesome but I have BOTH those colors! (Maybe I have too much nail polish…)

      • That makes me sad about the Bette color. That was the polish I was most excited for 🙁

  4. How are people finding the sale polishes to add on? I just went to sign up for the 3-month subscription using ONYX, and at first it offered me a choice of several $5 polishes, but now I can’t find them again….

  5. Does ordering this create a monthly subscription or us this a one time purchase? Thanks.

    • It is a one time purchase – not a subscription.

  6. I have a new code for you, just tried it and it does work.
    Add the congrats wedding duo ($33) to your cart and use code CONGRATS to get it free.

      Thanks! At least 7 polishes, a clutch and an extra for that price, can’t beat it!

      • I think enough time has passed since my summer mystery box, which was a big FLOP! I totally caved with this offer and placed this exact same order! I think I am most excited about the flirty add-on. Both colors look great! Thanks so much for the tips 🙂

    • Thanks!

    • Thank you for sharing the new code – ordered my box as soon as I saw it. One thing I’ve learned is when there is a great code not to procrastinate to long =)

  7. I think I’m going to pass on this one simply because I have more Julep eyeliners and nail polish than I could possibly ever use. However, I’ve found their Bare Face face wash and Sea Salt Spray through their mystery boxes and I’m IN LOVE with both products. I like their sea salt spray even better than Bumble Surf Spray…so I’m tempted to buy this to maybe make a new discovery but I seriously do not need anymore polish.

  8. I purchased the mystery box, but forgot to order the nail polish. I then called customer service then I was told to place another order for the nail polish I wanted and put the code in and it will work. It did not.

    I then called back their customer service, got the same representative. She noted I was a long time (years) customer. After explaining the situation, she put me on hold and then I was told I had to spend more money to get the free polish, I declined.

    I find that I was misinformed and mishandled. I do not think I should be required to pay more money, especially after years of being an excellent and continuous customer. I decided to canceled my subscription.

    • Update. When I called to cancel, they honored the polish. It was quite the effort.

    • Wow, when the GETCOLOR code didn’t go through the first time with the order, I followed up with an email and they sent out the nail polish I wanted immediately free of charge. Super easy. It must really depend on the service rep you get. I had Sabrina and this was taken care of within 8 hrs of my email.

  9. Is GETCOLOR working for any of you? It keeps telling me it’s not valid.

    • It worked for me, and I just placed my order about 30 minutes ago.

      • Well that’s odd. I just tried it again, and it still doesn’t work. I have the mystery clutch and Reese in my shopping cart. I even tried adding something else, thinking maybe it had to be a $30 purchase or something. No such luck. I’ll just wait until I get my Maven box and see if I have a different code in there.

  10. Ahhh! This company keeps taking my money! I couldn’t resist. LOVE the clutch and the nail polish. Even though I have about 80 different polishes! Lol. But I do use them a couple times a week. I tell myself I will get this and skip next month but I have a feeling i won’t be able to resist again.

  11. What do you all do with all these nail polishes! I always think oh so nice and then I think wait –you only about 5 nail polishes you never use

    • I started crafting with the nail polish. I make paper beads and use the nail polish as a glaze. A bit messy yet fun. When I’m not using nail polish I have a gift box. The Julep colors make great gifts because many of them are limited edition.

    • I put them in display racks so I can see them all. Then, while I do have some favorites, I try at least once a week to use a color I wouldn’t normally pick.

  12. I ordered it a few minutes ago. I couldn’t resist getting the Yuki and Valentina polishes for my daughters. Julep’s mystery boxes have been great the past few times.

  13. Ordered it a few minutes ago. However, Julep’s web page stalled during the billing process. I now have 3 orders instead of one and the funds have been debited from my credit card!

    I have notified Julep and they are working on a refund. I am hoping this issue will be resolved in a few hours 🙁

    • This happened to me and they charged me 114.00 probably around the same time instead of $25. When I called, at first they said they can’t cancel for me but then told me to hold on and they did reimburse me when I politely told them this is my first time ordering from them and I wouldn’t ever place a future order if they didn’t fix the prob.

  14. Ugh, I want Yuki but am not excited about Valentina or the clutch. Guess I’ll keep my fingers crossed that Yuki shows up on the swap site!
