I signed up for this service and couldn't be happier so far.
I have become quite addicted to painting my nails. It's a little bit of an issue (in the best possible way, of course). I love getting new polishes, but sometimes I get overwhelmed by the options.
I always end up staring at the rows and rows and rows of pretty little bottles and can't seem to pull the trigger on any one color.
I think I read about Julep Maven on Twitter, although I can't remember. I'm just really glad I signed up!
Here's how it works:
1) You take a style quiz.
2) You pay $20 a month and receive $40 of polishes and a fun surprise.
3) You can skip a month or send it to your friend if you don't want one month.
Here were my results:
The box! I'm pretty sure I squealed when I picked it up from the RHO.
I wasn't sure what to expect, but here's what came! A hand facial cream, a couple of samples, and three polishes!
A perfectly shiny varnish, a turquoise-y blue, and a nail strengthener.
I haven't tried the blue one yet, but the shiny one is a lot of fun!
I love the "glitter nails" look, but sometimes it's too time consuming. It takes forever to dry and it's never smooth. I like smooth! This polish goes on smooth, just like a regular one would. It almost has a gold leaf look. And I love it!!!
I can't wait for next month!
I think the service is really similar to Birchbox, but since I don't change my beauty products, um, ever... this is way more up my alley. You can sign up for Julep Maven here :)
