My February Julep Maven Box

Hi everyone! I am all moved in and almost all unpack. The moving has done a serious number to my nails. I tried to take pictures but they are just so unattractive. One more week, and swatch pics will be back.

Our winner for the Revlon giveaway never emailed me so I will be picking another winner. Keep reading and find out how.

Anyways, today is about my February Julep Maven Box. Julep is a nail company based out of Seattle. You can purchased their product on their website Julep.com or you can become a Maven and get a monthly preselected box mailed to you. The first mail ever at our new place WAS my Maven box! How lucky is that? What is different about Julep Maven as opposed to other beauty box is that you get a preview before Julep ships the box to you. If you don't like what is coming to you, you can request a "shelf pull." That's what I did this month, I didn't like the polish colors for my "American It Girl" profile, so I went with BoHo Glam.

This is what I got!



Black box is this month, Red was December. I decided to skip January because of the move. Oh yeah, you can skip or ship your box to a friend as a gift!



I love their packaging. It always looks so festive! February has an Oscar theme, but the navy blue was perfect for the Big Game!


Left to right: Marisa, Oscar, and Julep Cuticle Oil Roller.

I have Marisa on right now, the formula is good, but because the brush is so long that it will pick up a lot of extra polish. So I always get rid of some in the bottle every 1 to 2 strokes. I will re-swatch later and show you the pictures. The blue is not super unique but I don't have it in my stash do I'm happy.

I also tried the cuticle oil roller, it's a lot cleaner than a brush, but the oil isn't anything too special. Feels like any other cuticle oil. after a whole day of use, I am LOVING the cuticle oil roller!!! It deserves it's own post. which is coming soon.

I got my first maven box for a penny and was able to get this one free from the referral credit. If you would like to try Julep Maven, Click on this link  http://julep.com/?r=18136990

If you google julep coupon code you can usually get the first box for $5 (normally $19.99) Shipping if free, just make sure you select the right option.

I am not totally convince to signed up for the program yet, I am a commitment-phobe. We are trying to decided wither we should buy a house or not, CAN YOU IMAGINE??? I want to rent for a year, hubby wants to buy now! It is very stressful. But the good thing is, I can keep skipping months if I don't feel like buying :)

Now on to the giveaway, just enter below. It is super easy to do :) Let me know if you have any questions.
