I'm going to be honest right off the bat here. I love subscription boxes! Love them! My first experience with Julep was a Julep polish and top coat I got in my October PopSugar box. It was a deep blue, Char and an awesome topcoat, Freedom that dries in 5 minutes in natural light. I was won over.
I decided to take another look at Julep and realized I NEEDED to be a Julep Maven! I love the surprise I get with the boxes. I admit I don't always love everything in all my subscription boxes but I always find a friend to gift them too.
Julep Nail Color is a 4-Free Polish. Free of formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, toluene, or DBP (a plasticizer that's used in adhesives and printing inks). The colors are gorgeous, and I love the way the polish goes on. I'm not thrilled with the tall thin bottles but I use a lot of polish everyday. It's a pretty bottle but not very functional.
Here are a few bad swatches of Juleps Zora, Myrtle and a manicure I did with both and some tear drop red rhinestones.
I love the Zora, it is a naked look with a slight shimmer. The Myrtle is a nice true red but a bit too warm for me. I do like it enough to to give away though ;) I also got a neat cuticle oil brush pen. That went into my purse the second I opened it and tried it. The pen worked great and it went on well without leaving my fingers too grease. I love that I can pull it out for a quick use with out having an open bottle of oil to balance somewhere.
