Julep - July 2015 (The Drenched Collection)

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.

Julep is a monthly nail polish subscription box (as well as the occasional beauty/skin product), and it's amazing. It's so addictive to receive new polishes every month and be able to pick what you want to get. There currently now is MyMaven for $24.99/month or $19.99/month if you prepay for three months and Maven Luxe for $39.99/month. My Maven gets you the regular boxes each month and you can swap out products for the ones they have selected. Maven Luxe works the same way, but it's for higher valued items. You can now skip regardless of when you signed up for you account, which is a great incentive! 

There is still the referral program in place, and each referral earns you $15 to spend in the store. The Jules are still being earned and used, but they are only earned if you take the box or anniversaries and can be used either on monthly boxes or in the Jule Box. Still one of the best bonuses of being a Maven is that you receive 20% off all store items and free shipping on all orders!

This month, Julep released the regular nine polishes as well as an exclusive add-on and brought Ginger back from the vault. On top of these great polish options, they added some amazing new products: Rethink Your Shower (cleansing oil) and a body Konjac sponge (It's Fun to Exfoliate) as well as Your Cuticles Look Thirsty (cuticle creme) and Brighter is Better (nail brightener).

It was a small box for me this month, but I did remember to do my monthly selection so I knew what I was getting!


Quote card, coupon code, and candy!


Mara (It Girl) - Thistle blossom Stardust.
I absolutely love the Stardust Finish polishes Julep releases. I (think) I have all of them and I have bought duplicates of some. They stay on me forever and I love the great texture of them. 

Alyssa (It Girl) - Beachside turquoise creme.
There were some serious high hopes for this polish, thanks to my huge love of Julep's cremes. It's a gorgeous color, but the formula is a bit frustrating and didn't want to level out easily.

Juliana (It Girl) - Pink grapefruit sheer iridescent.
I really only got this polish because I haven't upgraded to MyMaven yet, but I'm really glad that I did. I would have missed out on something great. There's just enough orange that makes me feel like I'm wearing something different than my usual colors, so I feel super daring!


Corinne (Bombshell) - Sandcastle Stardust.
Yeah, Julep knew I would buy more than one Stardust polish if they released them. I don't have many tan/brown polishes but this is a fav of mine now!


Such a pretty picture. :)

Since I was able to choose my polishes this month, I definitely knew I would love most of the box before it even came in. Still, there's always the chance something won't look good on me or that I won't like the formula, so I'm still super happy after trying these out and getting my choices.
