Who here HASN’T seen a Julep ad on Facebook? Or even one of the sponsored posts that your friends “like”? I kept seeing them and finally in early July I succumbed to the Julep pressure. (The pictures are so pretty!)
I got my first box free with the code FREEBOX. I only paid shipping ($2.99) and I originally went with the one month plan.
The box arrived, and everything was just so cute. It took a couple of weeks before I tried one of the nail colors. I went with the blue. I tried it on a Saturday with no base coat or top coat and as of Wednesday, it was still perfect – not a chip. My normal go-to nail polishes have to be retouched just about once a day. (I’ve even painted them before making my 30-minute drive to work because I knew I could let them dry that way.)
When I first clicked over to their site, they had me do a style profile. They determined my style was the “It Girl” and after looking at the styles, I kind of agreed.
Without thinking another thing about it, my card was charged for the second month. I didn’t check to see what colors were being sent (I was busy, and I really had just forgotten about it.) I felt like the next three colors were a bit of a miss for me. And they’re a little more fall and winter-ish.
I tried the burgundy (Joyce) for a few days and actually really liked it. Then I tried the orange (Kirti) and LOVED it. I haven’t been daring enough to try the green yet.
So apparently, I’m kind of an “It Girl” when it comes to most of their nail colors.
(A couple of days post-application. My nails need more attention. I’m aware of this.)
I’m happy with the actual product. I just need to remember to check the colors before they’re mailed! In fact, I’m so happy with it, that I changed my subscription to the 3-month subscription. This month, I received notice when the boxes were going to be available to preview. You can log in, and check out the colors. If you don’t like all three, you’re able to swap one or all of them out with something else! (I actually switched two colors for this next box.)
I love nail polish. I’ve been experimenting with various colors this year and it’s been really fun. Painting my own nails forces me to take a break. You can’t clean when your nails are wet! And I like doing something that makes me feel a little more girly.
Tell me…have you signed up for a monthly subscription box yet? This was my first one and it’s so much fun!
