Being a Julep Maven means you receive three new nail polish releases in your mailbox every month for 20$, shipping included. You get to choose between 5 different sets each month, or you can skip any month at all if you don't like the choices... But let's face it, it's nail polish. I always like nail polish. :P
You can actually get your first box for just $0.01! That's what got me hooked... I thought, "Hey, 3 polishes for a penny! I'll just unsubscribe after." Which you totally can - if you've got more self-control than I do, anyway, haha. But after I got that first box with those lovely colours, I just knew I would remain a Maven.
You can get your first $0.01 Maven box by doing the following:
- Visit the Julep Store. (This is my referral link, thank you for using it!)
- Subscribe to the Maven program.
- Enter coupon code "PENNY" at checkout.
- You're done!
From the top, going down: Harper (a holographic small-to-medium-sized green glitter), Ivy (a glass-flecked duchrome which shifts from royal blue to a vibrant purple), and Vivien (a champagne-themed large beige glitter with fine silver dust).
Here is the box when you open it up for the first time.
Now here are the polishes on their own.
And with the cabochon ring!

I had been staring at my empty mailbox for days now, endless hours of longing for sparkles and merry polishes. My valiant postman stalking proved fruitless. My constant pacing amounted to nothing. I was beginning to lose faith.
And that's when it happened.
I was at work when I got a text from my boyfriend. "Looks like you've got mail," he said. That was enough. "Oh. My. God. NERL PERLERSH?!?", said I. The ride home was a very long one! I'm so glad I'm a Maven if only for the monthly excitement and joy of these little hand-wrapped packages!
