Mega Julep Giveaway + Review


Now, I don’t know if you all know this but I love Julep MavenSince the day I signed up for this program (in December) I’ve been nothing but happy with my shipments. Wait, wait, I’m getting ahead of myself – let’s start at the beginning!


What is Julep Maven?

Julep Maven is a fantastic subscription program available in the US and Canada. For only $19.99 per month you receive $40 or more worth of product! Usually, this includes 2 nail varnishes and a beauty product (lip gloss, cuticle oil, nail therapy etc.) depending on which style box you choose. On the Julep Maven website you are asked to take a quiz to determine which style profile fits you best. They are American Beauty, It Girl, Boho Glam, Bombshell and Classic with a Twist and each box contains different colours based on your profile. Once you do this, each month on the 20th, Julep will send you an email showing you the contents of your upcoming box. I ended up being an American Beauty (or Canadian Beauty as I like to say) but the best part about this service is you can change your box each month if you prefer the colours in another box! It girl is a bit different from the other boxes as it doesn’t come with the beauty product but instead, another varnish. You also have the option of skipping a month without any penalty (my favourite option!). I like not feeling “locked in” to a subscription or obligated to get a box that I don’t like – take this month for example, I just purchased a mega-sized Essie polish remover and don’t like metallics on my nails so I skipped! There is also a new feature that allows you to add-on colours from other boxes to your box for only $4.99!


What’s in my Box?



I was thrilled when Julep asked me to work with them and offer me a review box and a CONTEST for my subscribers! I love working with my favourite companies and feel like it’s such an honour!

Julep was nice enough to let me pick a few shades to try out that weren’t already in my large collection. I told them I wanted their brightest brights and here is what I got!



Julep Nail Varnish

  • Lauren
I’m a sucker for neon pink! I would wear this everyday on my nails, I see it as a neutral haha. Lauren is the perfect neon pink and is amazing for summer! I think it would also look great on toes. Like all Julep Polishes, it applies easily with no streaking and only takes 2 coats. They dry quickly and last a long time when used with a base and top coat. The quality of Julep polishes are outstanding and I prefer them over O.P.I. or Essie.
Julep Nail Varnish
  • Hayden
I dare you to find this shade anywhere else! I’ve never seen anything like it. Hayden is described as a “Neon Peach Cream” but I like to think of it more as Cantaloupe.  The photo on the website looks much more pinky-peach than it is in real life, it’s much more orange. This polish may streak as it is very opaque but with two coats, I had no streaking and total coverage.
Julep “The Best Pedi Creme Ever!”
I also requested a tube of their pedi creme to go with the summer sandal weather. I skipped the month where we received this in our box so I was thrilled to be able to try it out. Lately, my feet have been more and more dry and cracking and I’m finally forced to do something about it. This creme says that you will see a difference in your feet in only 2 uses and they really weren’t kidding! I’ve used regular creams on my feet with no real difference but this one contains AHA’s to exfoliate and super nourishing butters and oils. The only thing I would change is the size of the bottle, I need it to be bigger!!
