I'm a Julep Maven

I can't believe I've never posted about Julep! Since I posted about IPSY/MyGlam yesterday, I thought I'd continue with the beauty subscription theme.

I am insanely obsessed with Julep's nail polish. They are "King of the Nail Polish" jungle, if you ask me. No other nail polish even comes close in comparison. That's a pretty hefty statement, but it's also 100% true.

I can't remember how long I've been a Julep Maven now but its been a while. I kept reading about it on Twitter and had no idea what it was or what it meant. What do we all do when we're unsure about something? We google it! So I Google'd it, and I found a beautiful ray of light.

Julep is a superior brand of nail polish. (I can't say enough.) A Julep Maven is one who, for a small fee of $19.99, receives two nail polishes + an additional item (and there might be a profile that receives three polishes instead of the additional item) a month. Each polish is $14.99 if you buy it from their website without being a Maven, so the monthly subscription of $19.99 for 2 polishes + the item is a STEAL.  The polish is high quality (the polish in the picture below lasted a full 10 days before a single chip), unique, and named after strong women.
*My additional items have included everything from pedicure cream, to cuticle remover, to fast drying polish drops, to mascara.

You fill out a beauty profile, like other subscriptions such as Birchbox or IPSY, and are assigned a particular beauty profile. The four profiles: American Beauty, Boho Glam, Bombshell, and Classic with a Twist.

I was assigned the Classic with a Twist profile. The great thing about Julep is that it doesn't matter which profile you are assigned because you can login during a specific time frame and see next month's products. If you like what you see in another profile different from yours, you can opt to receive that profile's products instead. PLUS, if you are a bit short on cash or aren't too crazy about any of the products that month, you can opt out of the month altogether!

Love, love, love, love, love.

BUT WAIT... there's more! If you are one of the chosen few, you will be among those lucky enough to receive the Golden Box.

A random number of lucky mavens are surprised every month when they open up their mailbox to find a gold box instead of the normal black one. The Golden Box is usually filled with every single polish color and product from every profile for that month. The night I learned of this glorious Golden Box, I had a dream that I got one. Seriously.

I think I've gushed on about Julep enough for one night.
So look at some of my goodies.

I'm pretty sure this was my FIRST Julep box.
The low picture quality doesn't do the colors justice.

This was October's box.
The blue is the base and the orange is a crackle polish.
