June Julep Maven - Jelly Much Box

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 and as you can see I went with neither of those options this month. You can join as a Julep maven for $24.99 a month which will get you $40+ worth of polish and products. You can also sign up for a prepaid 3 month subscription for $60 which brings it down to $20 a month. The next level subscription is Julep Maven luxe. This program is priced at $39.99 a month and you will get $60+ worth of prestige products. This also has a 3 month prepaid option for $105.00 which brings it to $34.99 a month. The benefit of these new plans is that each box is completely customizable which, as I understand, means you can pick they nail polish colors you want from any of the style profiles. Since I'm signed up under their old pricing plan ($19.99/month not customizable) I have the option of switching my subscription to one of these new tiers but I haven't switched yet.

Price: $24.99-$39.99 a month with a discount for prepaid 3 month subscription. 

The good:

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

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 the commitment?  You can buy the polish online at Julep.com 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.

Skip a month? YES. They recently changed it so ALL mavens have the ability to skip after purchasing their first monthly box. 

The not so good:

Now that they have brought back the skips I couldn't think of anything that wasn't so good.

Contents of Boho Glam box w/retail price:

Radiant Amethyst Eye Glider. Value = $12.80

Tiffany, Bombshell, Pink Radish Jelly Polish. Value = $14.00/$11.20

Lori, Classic with a Twist, Pressed Marionberry Jelly Polish. Value = $14.00/$11.20

The approximate value of my Bombshell Maven box is $40.80 or $35.20 using Maven pricing. I picked this box because I've never tried jelly polish and it looks fun. The main reason I picked it though was because I love purple eye liners and the eye glider formula is great. So this box was a big win for me.  

Verdict: Love eye glider and I can't wait to try the jellies.
