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 January’s “It Girl” box!

  • nail polish in Megan (Mediterranean aquamarine shimmer)
  • nail polish in Hayden (bold and bright neon peach creme)
  • nail polish in Leah (grass green with a hint of shimmer)
  • nail therapy
  • nail polish remover pad

I did some quick swatches (which is why it’s a bit sloppy and I didn’t even bother with my thumb). I found the formula of Megan and Leah to be the best but Hayden was a nightmare. I had to redo it FOUR TIMES and pretty much gave up at the end. The formula of Hayden was just super streaky for me. Megan is SUCH a gorgeous polish though, so shimmery and with Leah it’s very bright but I think is a great Spring color.

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

That Megan is absolutely gorgeous! Love it.

I love it. I think it would also look super nice with 1 coat of Deborah Lippmann’s Across the Universe over it… I’ll have to try that combo soon!

I’m so jealous of this julep box. I don’t think I can get it in NZ. I love that aqua colour (Megan?).

Do you mean the SHAREON code? It most likely expired by this point!

Here’s a code to make the first box $5 though which is still a very good deal, MAVEN5!

How do you store/organize your nail polish collection?

posted on January 12th 2012 at 10:41PM CST

I don’t. It’s a VERY irritating issue for me because I do have so many and I have NO clue where to put them in a way that is 1. easily accessible for me 2. displays all the colors by brand 3. is cheap yet pretty to do

I love the two I’ve received in the introductory box. I love their colors too! If they had one named Ivy, I’d totally get it. As for now, I’ve cancelled it after my first box. I don’t have the $ to maintain the $19.99/month. I wished I did. Maybe in the future when I have a paying job and not in school. Love your collection of them.

I find their nail polish formula so much better than other ones!
