If you love getting to try out new nail polishes then I suggest you sign up for Julep’s Maven Program! I’ve been getting the boxes for a few months now ($19.99 a month) and have found that I love their polishes and hand products!

Here are some photos of the polishes I’ve received the past few months:

I’ve also gotten full size hand care and nail care products and samples of other hand/nail care products.

I thought I would just do a quick post on what I got for this month’s box and by all means if you’re interested go and sign up! I would love it if you did it via my affiliate link: Julep Maven because I can then earn rewards. I’m all about reward systems! Once you become a Julep Maven, you get a personalized 20% code that you can use on any/all of your Julep purchases.

So this is what I got in April’s “It Girl” box!

  • Niecy – a bright pink creme
  • Penelope – opaque almost white creme with a hint of blush
  • Jessica – a soft baby blue creme
  • toe separators
  • little Easter egg shaped chocolates (which my little one ate right away!)

This month they had a promotion to add up to TWO polishes from the OTHER boxes for only $4.95 each instead of regular price so I added the following:

  • Renee – spring lilac creme
  • Susie – delicious mint creme

I found most of the formulas to be fairly opaque, perhaps a bit streaky with thinner coats, with the exception of Penelope which came on quite sheer AND doesn’t appear to be “blush” to me but a straightforward soft pink.

Here are some swatches*!

For the month of April, by using my referral link, you can use the code APRILINTRO to get your first box for a PENNY!

If you have any questions about any of the products or anything really, let me know!

*all photos shot super quickly on my point and shoot!

I’m digging those spring pastels! Which one’s your favorite? I really love the lilac.

Julep Maven’s box program is one thing I desperately want to try, but can’t, simply because of where I live. Silly shipping restrictions.

There’s quite a few beauty box style programs I want to try, birchbox being another, but can’t because of shipping regulations. There doesn’t seem to be anything like it available in NZ yet either, which makes for a sad day.

Oh that SUCKS! What about GlossyBox?

Glossybox is up and running in Australia, and we have a Coming Soon .co.nz page, however, I’ve contacted the company and there’s no specific date set for when they will be launching in NZ. I’m really growing impatient: It shouldn’t be so hard to provide shipping between Aus and NZ, at least. I do it all the time and it costs only slightly more than you’d pay to ship nationally.

Blah! :(
