  1. This is my first month so I cannot customize but I am so beyond excited!!!

    • You should be able to customize. Contact them, they are very responsive. I have a same glitch, when I signed up I was unable to customized, they fixed the problem.

  2. definitely getting all the solid colors except the black as I already have it. Just trying to decide how many of the glitters to get. Might get one of the eyeshadows, too.

  3. Since they’re starting to recycle polish colors in boxes, I wish they’d actually bring back some retired colors, rather than colors we could buy from the shop at any time.

    I went for broke & got the Wine & Dine shadow compact, even though I don’t neeeeeeed it. I also got the Putty shadow stick since it’s my favorite one-and-done shade, & even though the shadow sticks are often options to include in the box, Putty hasn’t been one of the choices for a long time. I do want to try some of the new microglitters, so I added the teal and the pink.

  4. Does anyone know the colors I’d get if I signed up and got the free 12 polishes? Or would they just be a random assortment? Thanks!

    • I think it’s pretty random. Some people have been disappointed because they aren’t the ones shown in the pictures necessarily. But when I got my free box last December it was at least a good assortment of different colors….

      • Awesome! Thanks! I’m actually not wild about the shades shown so that’s good news. Do I get to pick out all 3 of my choices or is 1 or 2 random?

        • You can choose one of several of their “curated” monthly boxes or fully customize one of your own. Typically I think you can get up to 3 polishes or a mix of beauty and polishes. But since beauty items cost more if you include one of those your total product count is usually only 2 or 2 plus a sheet of decals (something small). They have a HUGE list of items you can choose from so it really is a totally customized box. Plus you have the option for add-ons which are a better deal than everyday “Maven pricing”…polishes around $5 for example. Choosing a monthly box and add-ons truly can be time consuming but it is so much fun and great because you get what you want! BUT, if you are just signing up now I’d call or shoot an email to customer service to see if you will be able to customize this month’s box (the window is only 3-5 days and already open). Sometimes I hear people get a first box that’s selected for them and sometimes people just get postponed and aren’t able to get a box until the next month! So beware of that and check first…

          • LB – Thank you so much for all of the info! 💚

          • Thanks for that info. I’ve always liked this box but I’ve been hesitant since I didn’t quite understand the process.

          • Happy to help with the explanation. If you like Julep products, I highly recommend the sub. I got a further discount to $16.67 a month because I did a prepaid sub with a promo (this is my last month though….sigh) and “only” spent $21 on add-ons this month but I’m getting 2 of the new eyeshadow duos, a full face brush (I like their brushes), 2 Konjac sponges and a polish plus a free gift (usually another random polish) for getting 3 add-ons. So that’s over $114 worth of products for $37.67. The only problem is that my product overload is out of control now and I still can’t stop! LOL.

    • It’s a random assortment, and they send it right away – at least that was my case. They shipped the free gift in the same day I subscribed (3 days ago). The only bad thing is that it will only arrive here next Monday, so since I don’t know the colors I will be getting, I ended up choosing only 1 nail polish for this month box.

      • Gabriela – thanks! Hope you get good colors in the free 12 pack! ☺

  5. I really need a base coat, can anyone recommend the smoothing base coat or the bonding base coat? Don’t know which one is better!!

    • Also, I looooove the Johnny polish because it is just so black, and because I love Johnny Cash, but do I really need more than one black polish?? Maybe?

    • I swear by the smoothing base coat. Not necessarily for the the “smoothing” properties, but because it dries matte. That means it dries super fast & I can tell at a glance when it’s dry & ready for the color coat.

      • Have you noticed a gloopy texture change in the formula over time? I read that criticism in the reviews for that product, and even saw some photos of the deteriorated formula. Everyone says it works great initially, but some people wrote reviews that after that initial great experience, it ends up being unworkable after 2-3 weeks.

  6. I got October Polish Lover Upgrade
    $120 value
    Silver Halloween Stickers
    Christi (It Girl) – Enchanted Teal Shimmer 0.27 fl oz, 8 mL
    Laurie (Classic with a Twist) – Deep Crimson Shimmer 0.27 fl oz, 8 mL
    Alonna (Bombshell) – Spellbound Purple Shimmer 0.27 fl oz, 8 mL
    Johnny (Bombshell) – True Black Crème 0.27 fl oz, 8 mL
    Trixy (Boho Glam) – Galactic Rose Glitter 0.27 fl oz, 8 mL
    Dot (It Girl) – Celestial Blue-Violet Glitter 0.27 fl oz, 8 mL
    Ariel (Bombshell) – Planetary Turquoise Glitter 0.27 fl oz, 8 mL
    Marlise (Wonder Maven) – Luminous Borealis Glitter 0.27 fl oz, 8 mL

    I am so excited!! This was my first month and picking out what I wanted and it was a blast !!

    • Haha. It can be pretty overwhelming…but in a great way! I remember being so caught off guard my first month because I couldn’t believe how customizable it is! Hope you love everything!

  7. I”m planning to get the black polish & stickers. . .and then I”m not quite sure. . . maybe the laurie polish for that ombre look, maybe the quick drying drops.

    • You can always get the stickers as an add on 🙂

    • Those quick dry drops are my faaaaaaavorite discovery from Julep. They work fairly well (as long as your polish isn’t too thick), and it smells amazing.

  8. Does anyone know how many boxes/months you are allowed to skip? I signed up back in August & this is the first month I’ve skipped (the colors just weren’t for me) but I don’t want to skip too many times & then have my sub cancelled because I love it 😍

    • You can skip as many times as you like! I had actually cancelled it for probably 2 years and re-joined this year and somehow kept my old price.

    • I signed up for a 6 month sub last December and I’ve stretched it so this is my last month of the sub. There is no question I’m renewing my sub because I absolutely LOVE the ability to skip, fully customize and the great bargains.

      • That makes me feel so much better! I love this sub so far but needed to save some money this month & would have hated to lose the sub after so many skips! Thanks for the answers girls 🙂

  9. Got the black polish with silver stickers, and since I had a lot of room left for one item I chose the facial milk lotion

  10. They actually picked a good default for me this time but I upgraded to the polish lovers’ collection. First time in awhile.
