|Julep Maven September 2015 Monthly Subscription Box|
I have skipped the past few Julep Maven boxes, but the September colors drew me in. I think I swapped out one item, added on one item with my Jules, and received a bonus polish for free.
|Julep September 2015 Maven Box, featuring (l-r) Cassandra, Rayma, Aubrey, Zoey, and one polish labeled "Julep 5226"|
Cassandra - A dark wine crelly
Rayma - A deep berry cream
Aubrey - A berry metallic
Zoey - A dusty seafoam green cream
Julep 5226 - A dusty purple-pink cream, similar to Essie Splash of Grenadine but darker and more gray for autumn, which was the bonus polish
|Julep September 2015 Maven Box Swatches: (l-r) Cassandra, Rayma, Julep 5226, Aubrey, and Zoey|
I have not yet worn any of these polishes on my nails, so I don't know how they truly apply or wear, but I have swatched them on my nail wheel, and all the polish formulas seem fantastic as usual. Most Julep polishes are thick (but not goopy), apply easily without pooling in my cuticles and self level, and dry fairly quickly. They are often one-coaters, but I almost always prefer wearing two coats because I have thin nails that need extra protection. My swatches all have two coats.
This is my personal referral link to join Julep Maven. According to the Julep site, if you join using my link, you get your first box free (whereas if you just join without a referral link you get a box for half-off). Your first box will not be the usual monthly box; it will be a special welcome box. For every referral I give that leads to a new subscriber, I get $15 to spend on Julep.com.
