October Julep Box - It Girl

Julep is a monthly subscription company for nail polishes. When you sign up for Julep you take a little quiz and it will tell you what kind of polish girl you are.  You are not obligated to stay with that that type though.  When I first signed up the website said I was Boho Glam but liked the It Girl colors better so I picked that one.  You always have the option of switching styles each month.  The monthly fee is $19.99 w/shipping included.  The company advertises that you will receive $40 worth of product for $19.99.  Also you will 20% all purchases from their website.  Thank you to my awesome readers for using my referral link, because of you I received this box for free. 

The good:

The colors: If you like nail polish then it's a nice way to experiment with multiple colors

Skip a month? Yes! you can skip a month.  They will send an email when your selections are ready and you have 4 days to let them know to skip the month.

Need a gift? If you want to send your box to a friend there is an option to do so.  Just log on to your account and click send to friend.

Ingredients: Julep is 4-free which means it's formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, toluene or DBP free.  

Want the polish but not he commitment?  You can buy the polish online at or in Sephora stores.  The cost is $14 so if you like polish then becoming a Maven is a better deal.  If you want to try it out first you can always pick one up at Sephora or online.   

Swatches: I love how every month Julep shows what the color looks like on actual nails and shows it on different skin tones. 

Referral program. You earn "Jules" for referrals, purchases, anniversary, birthday and upgrades.

The not so good:

Quality:  Some of the colors are more chiporific that others.  I find that if you are diligent about using a top coat it really helps.  I don't have that same issue with other polishes like Essie or Zoya.

Ciara, Kendra and Missy

Add-ons Valerie and Beatrix

Contents of Bombshell box w/retail price:

Kendra, It Girl, Army Green Frost. Value = $14.00

Ciara, It Gir, Vampy Majenta with Teal Microglitter. Value = $14.00

Missy, It Girl, Titanium Metallic. Value = $14.00


Beatrix, Bombshell, Coal Black with Multidimensional Glitter. Value = $14.00

Valerie, Bombshell, Teal with Iridescent Microglitter. Value = $14.00

The approximate value of my Boho Glam Maven box is $42.00. The add-ons value is $28.00 and I paid $5 each. The pictures don't really do the colors justice and I already had polish on my nails so I couldn't swatch them on my nails.

Verdict: I like Julep.  They offer fun boxes, skipping the month is easy and their mystery boxes are a great value.
