May 2012 Julep Maven It Girl Box Nail Polish

My May Julep Maven Box was delivered yesterday. I had to pick kiddo up from the airport so I did not have a time to draft and share this post last night.  I was excited to see this particular Julep Maven It Girl box because I am so loving the Spring and Summer colors that were included.

Julep Maven It Girl Nail Polish: Ashley, Kylie and Nessa

Retail Julep total: $42 , Price via Julep Maven Program: $19.99 (I do not know the price of the magnet)

Looking at the nail polish colors in my Julep Maven It Girl box, I love them! However, I cannot really make a final decision until I swatch them. I have loved the colors I’ve received in other boxes but they are very pigmented, nearly opaque. These I am not sure about. Ashley and Nessa appear like they could go on a bit sheer and need extra coats and liking Kylie will depend on how well the included magnet works. We shall see, I’ll swatch these colors shortly! For now, check out my Julep Maven It Girl – April 2012 box if you’d like!

Julep Maven is a monthly subscription program in which you receive new Sneak Peek Box of Julep products. Each month you’ll receive an email letting you know your box is ready and a preview of what it includes. You’ll then have until the 25th of the month to request a different box, send your box to a friend or skip the month for no charge. If you want the box chosen for you, you’ll be charged $19.99 and the box will be shipped to you.

Julep Maven often gives the opportunity to try the first box at a deep discount, sometimes just 1 cent! Entering the promotion code “Penny” at checkout should work so give that a shot if you decide to try Julep. I think the program is worth enrolling in simply because you can try it out cheap, there is no obligation to buy since you skip months without being charged and if you do purchase you get over $40 worth of Julep products for $19.99 which is a good saving. Of course everyone has their own preferences so check out Julep.com and decide for yourself.

    I really like the violet and orange colors. The Nessa on is cute too, but yellow polishes never look good on me lol 🙂

       @opalstevens I'm excited to try the violet with the magnetic effect to see how that goes! I also love the orange, I'm so into orange nail color, have been for years. I was hesitiant about yellow too because I don't know how this shade will look on me, but it's so summer-ish that I hope it looks great!

    Those are really pretty, I really like the gold and yellow! I didn't get those colors, just the purple. Wonder why I didn't get 3 like you did.

    I love them too, well I love what they all look like in the bottle. I haven't tried them yet to make my final opinion on this bunch. The items you get are based on your profile, but you can switch boxes if you don't want was picked for you. Shoot me an email via next month if you need a walk through on switching boxes. 😉
