What you get is based on a style quiz you take when you sign up. The program is $19.99 a month and in your monthly box you'll find at least $40 worth of product. You can skip any month that you don't want the box. Being a Julep Maven also gets you 20% off all purchases in the Maven Boutique plus you'll get free shipping. If you refer 2 friends you'll receive a free month!!

Get your first box for a penny!

Now that I gave the details about the service lets move on to the fun part - my box!
It was a really hard choice for me but I went with the 'It Girl' introductory box.

Here is what I saw when I opened the box:

The contents came nicely wrapped and included some toe separators for pedicures.

.My 3 polish colors:
Daisy - A golden yellow
Sasha - a peachy salmon shade
Lily - a berry fuchsia color

I applied 2 coats and it dried slightly matte. The color is ideal for a bright summer mani/pedi. The exciting part of this polish is that it matches my phone case, exactly! 

Daisy and Sasha
Daisy (yellow) is my favorite. I love this shade of yellow. When I saw it on the website I didn't think I would like it as much as I do, but in person I fell in love with it. It's a thin formula so I applied 3 coats and could have maybe even added a fourth. I want to wear this color all summer long!

Sasha (salmon) is a thicker, more creamy polish. The color is really pretty against a tan. I applied 2 coats but 1 was almost enough to cover the nail. This color is the main reason I picked this particular box and it definitely lived up to my expectations.

The polishes are beautiful and the bottles are very unique. I can't wait to try more!

Julep was kind enough to offer a free introductory box to my readers!
