January Julep Maven Intro Box Review – Classic with a Twist

Julep is a nail care and polish company (They have a few salons in Washington state) with a subscription box called Julep Maven. When you first sign up to be a Julep Maven you complete a survey to determine your polish style, with one of four possible results.

  • Classic with a Twist
  • American Beauty
  • Boho Glam
  • It Girl

Not only can you skip a box, but you can switch polish styles each month as well! They typically send an email when each month’s selections are ready and you have 4 days to either chose your style or skip, you also have the option of including “add-ons” which are discounted products you can “include” (they usually ship in a different box) in your monthly box. The base cost is $19.99 per month including shipping for two polishes and possibly a product or two, all valued at $40.00. Also as a Maven, you will 20% all purchases from their website.

The “ad-ons” I chose – after 2.5 years of chasing a baby and countless broken nails, I really needed to replenish my manicure supplies!

Julep Acetone-Free Conditioning Nail Polish Remover – $14.00

Quick Dry Polish Drops – $14.00 I have always said “I have the unbelievable ability to ruin a manicure in less than 10 seconds,” so these are awesome! I can get back to doing whatever needs to be done that much faster!! Bonus – These also have the same nice Lavender scent!

Crystal Nail File – $6.00 “A fine grit glass nail file that is gentle on your nails.” I really like how gentle this is on my nails, the only issue is it is a bit too thick to get under my nail to remove any of the “over-hang?” of the previously filed nail bits.

The overall value of this Julep Maven, box plus “add-ons” is $80.00, this is awesome in comparison to the $33.96 and I love the colors I have received and the fact that I can chose my future colors! This box is a keeper, I am so excited to now have a time for pretty nails at home!!
