A couple of months ago I signed up for Julep Maven. Once a month, for $20, I receive a box of nail polish/beauty products (either 2 nail polishes and a beauty product or 3 nail polishes). I’ve never done a subscription service like this before, but I’m really enjoying it!
Getting the package in the mail is a nice treat and I’m having fun playing around with the polishes. I used to paint my nails all the time but then I got out of the habit — this has inspired me to start doing my nails again! (Well, I’ve also been inspired by posts from other bloggers and pictures/tutorials I’ve come across on Pinterest.)
Recently, Julep offered a “Spring Mystery Box” – for $20, receive $60-$200 worth of polish & beauty products. I decided to spring for it (I swear that pun wasn’t intended when I started writing this sentence) and this is what I got:
I totally lucked out! Of course I had to try out my new polish, and I’m really happy with all of it.
I painted most of my nails using 2 coats of “Anne” (lightish/medium violet crème), and painted an accent nail on each hand using “Hayden” (peach crème). Then I added a coat of Melissa (opalescent shimmer), and topped my nails off with Julep’s Fast Dry Topcoat.
Also, I just discovered that if you sign up for Julep Maven and enter the code “PENNY”, you get your first box for $0.01. (At least for the time being!) So you can try it out for almost nothing, if you want. I definitely recommend it! I got my first box using a similar code and I figured I’d cancel afterwards, but I liked it so much that I kept the subscription. And it’s nice that Julep makes it easy to skip a month without completely canceling, if you want. (Or you can just outright cancel it.)
What do you think of subscription services? Is there one you love & would recommend? Or one to avoid?
