Julep July 2012 BOMBSHELL

When you think of summertime fun, the 4th of July comes to mind. This month, Julep was extra sweet and sent out a festive nail polish to all their subscribers in the USA and Canada. We got to choose which free glitter gloss we wanted to be added to our box. While the Oh Canada was really pretty, I went with the America. Wasn’t that generous of them?

This month Julep even went a step further and included a coordinating/matching lip gloss in some of their boxes. Although I usually stick with my style profile American Beauty, this month I decided to switch it up and go for the BOMBSHELL box.

Inside the July 2012 BOMBSHELL box:

  • Julep lip gloss in Zinnia
  • Julep nail color in Kate
  • Julep nail color in Chelsea
  • Julep nail color bonus in America

My nails are sure to sparkle this month thanks to Julep… want to get your Julep nail colors too? Follow my referral link and get started

Julep June 2012 Boho Glam

Summer is on the horizon and that means life in flip flops! There’s nothing more important during sandal season than having pretty painted toes.

In the June 2012 Boho Glam box here’s what I got:

  • Julep daylight defense hand & face cream SPF 30
  • Julep daylight defense lip protectant SPF 15
  • Julep nail color in Daisy a bright yellow cream
  • Julep nail color in Robin a light aqua cream

What I will say, is I really prefer these creme colors Julep is putting out this summer. I do a base coat, 2 coats of polish and a top coat and that gets me through a week on my toes!

Julep May 2012 EXTRA EXTRA

One of the nice things Julep offers to their Mavens is the option to order additional nail polishes from the new collection at a discount. 

This month I decided to choose 2 additional colors to add to my usual monthly subscription. 

The colors I bought are: 

  • Sarah  -  a sheer pink coral nail color with iridescent glitter —from the May2012  Bombshell collection
  • Fina    -  a metallic sky blue nail color with a chrome finish— from the May2012  Bombshell collection

Can I just say that these are 2 of my FAVORITE Julep colors to date! I’m happy I decided to go cRaZy and get a few extras this month!

Julep May 2012 IT GIRL

I got my Julep Maven IT GIRL box!

Let’s see what’s inside

I usually stick with my style profile of American Beauty, but this month the IT GIRL colors looked really fun! One of the great things about the Julep Maven program is that you can preview what’s been pre-selected for you, and if you want to switch it up, you can opt for a different style to be sent (or even skip the month). 

Inside my May 2012 Julep IT GIRL box was:

Julep nail color

  • Ashley  -  a metallic sunset orange shimmer
  • Nessa   - a metallic lemon shimmer
  • Kylie    - a deep violet shimmer - magnetic nail polish

a sample of the Best Pedi-Creme Ever

and the magnet for the Kylie polish

I’ve tried the colors and found the brushed to be a bit wonky, so JULEP with their awesome customer service is sending new nail polish brushes to me! The Ashley and Nessa are very shimmery, and look pretty cool together. The Kylie magnetic polish is a gorgeous color, but I wasn’t all too impressed with the actual “magnetic effect” so I’ll be wearing that color without the extra step.

Julep Polish Sofia

I opted in for the surprise St. Patricks Day box from the Julep Maven program in March 2012.

I just noticed last night something very special about one of the nail polishes… it glows in the dark. 

The color is called Sofia, a very sheer spring green with aqua sparkles. Alone the color isn’t really all that great, what I mean is it’s not very flattering when worn alone on your nails. But I like to try every color out and see how it goes on before layering. I like using it as a top coat with darker colors like  Elizabeth and give some extra sparkle.

The added bonus with this color is that it GLOWS in the dark! When worn alone on nails, 2-3 coats, you get some fun glowing nails. It doesn’t glow as much when put on as a top coat. But since it wasn’t marked as a GITD nail product, I consider that a little bonus. My daughter loved seeing my glowing nails when I put her to bed last night! :)

Julep Pedicure Maria

I wanted to post a pic and review of a Julep color called MARIA - I got this color in my March St. Patricks’s Day extra box. 

Maria is described as a shimmering platinum rose, but I think it’s really a shiny metallic lilac-rose color. I say lilac-rose because the color is a light pinkish purple and it’s not shimmery, it’s metallic! It’s a high gloss color for sure.

With 2 coats, the color looks great and is super shiny and almost mirror like in the sunlight! I think it will be a great summer color. Can’t wait to wear this at the beach.

Julep Pedicure Renee

Lizzy wanted in on the fun and how could I say no to those cute little toes?

Here is the Julep nail polish in RENEE as seen on Lizzy’s nails.

The color is a light lilac creme and perfect for Spring time.

We even used the toe seperaters, but they were a little big for her tiny feet.

10 little pretty purple toes all in a row.

These are little dancing feet. We’re ready for ballet class!! ;)

Julep Pedicure Eva

I’m getting ready for summer! Even though I live in Florida and pretty much live in flip flops, during the winter months my feet tend to get a little dry.

BUT… this month I got a great little product in my Julep Maven box and I was extremely excited to try it out!

So here are my cute feet painted in Julep’s Eva polish and I have to say that this color is my favorite one so far. It screams summertime and with my lime green flip flops, it really looks super pretty.

But the product I was most excited to try from this month’s box was The Best Pedi Creme Ever. Since I do my own “at home” manis and pedis I’m always looking for salon quality products that deliver. And I’m loving The Best Pedi Creme Ever - so much that I think it’s perfectly named. This foot cream contains shea butter and coconut oil to hydrate, gently exfoliates with alpha hydroxy acids and nourishes skin with vitamin E and other essential oils. My tired feet feel soothed every time I use it and they smell so pretty. The fragrance is a light cucumber mint. This is on my wish list, it’s that good!

Julep St. Patrick’s Box 2012 ~extra!

Are you feelin’ lucky?  Well, I sure am. I might not have gotten the “big $200 box” from Julep’s St. Patrick’s Box extra this month, but I think I have the luck o’ the Irish on my side. 

This month, Julep offered an additional surprise box to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. For $19.99 subscribers were guaranteed to receive a minimum of $60 in the green Julep box.

This is my first time an “extra box” has been available, so of course I HAD to get one! Everything was neatly packaged in the trendy black Julep cosmetic bag. I think the style and shape of the bag is really cute, and it’s well made, so I’m going to throw it into my Coach bag and use it as a make up bag! winwin ;) 

In this haul I received:

The Julep crystal nail file  -  This is my first experience with the crystal file, I like it and Lizzy liked that it didn’t make that “scary sound” the metal files make.

Julep Everyday SPF 30 Hand Cream  -  a non-greasy hand cream, that’s unscented and has SPF 30 (protects hands from UVA and UVB sun damage)

Julep Essential Cuticle Oil  -  Formulated w/ vitamin E and all natural essential oils. What I love about this is the application, a nifty roller ball, and it’s not messy or greasy to use… even Lizzy can do it all by herself!

Julep Nail Colors in:

  • Emma  -  seashell pink shimmer
  • Sofia    -  sheer spring green w/ a flash of aqua sparkle glitter
  • Maya    -  pearly peachy pink shimmer

Julep Nail Appliques  -  Peacock  colorful nail appliques that look like spotted peacock feathers

…and an extra special treat for us, Julep chocolate coins! Lizzy was so happy about these since we looked for them for St. Patty’s day.


Here’s the $ breakdown of this box!

file=  $  6

handcream=  $  28

cuticle oil=  $  18

nailpolish 3 @ $14 each =  $42

appliques=  $14

GRAND TOTAL  =  $108

not too shabby! I got it all for just $19.99
