One of my hobbies is painting my nails and for almost a year now I’ve been a Julep Maven subscriber. For $19.99 a month I get a box valued at $40 mailed to me with new nail polishes and sometimes beauty products. Since I am an older subscriber I have the option to skip each month if I don’t have the budget or the products don’t interest me. New subscribers “earn” a skip every 6 months. The thing that hooked me in was that the first box was free!
You can see the newest Julep nail polish colors here.

My February box included a free nail polish called “Love” sent as a thank you from the owner and CEO of Julep, Jane Park. I also had the option to add on a new cream eyeshadow called “Julep Eye Sheen” so I chose one in bronze. I paint my nails once or twice a week so to me it is worth it to update my nail polish collection frequently.
When you first sign up to be a Julep Maven you first take a quiz to discover your style profile. You can either be an It Girl, Boho Glam, Classic with a Twist, Modern Beauty or Bombshell. All the boxes come with 2 nail colors and 1 beauty product except for It Girl, that box receives 3 nail colors each month. Since I’m all about the nail polish I’m an It Girl! Each month they release brand new colors and beauty products that match each style profile. If for some reason you don’t like the selections for your style profile you can switch to a different style. You also have the option to add-on more nail colors or beauty products.

You also earn Jules, once you reach 2000 Jules you can redeem it for a free box! Each time a friend signs up using your referral link you get 1000 Jules. You earn 300 Jules each time you take a monthly box, 200 are given on your birthday, 500 given to you on your anniversary month, and 750 when you pay to upgrade your monthly box. Jules do expire after two years.
You also don’t have to wait to save up your Jules, you can redeem 750 to get a free polish. Julep customer service is pretty great too. When I tried the DD Creme it caused an allergic reaction so I called them and they gave me some Jules and I used that to get myself a free nail polish.

Each month on the 20th they open a “window” where you can see what the next month’s box will be and you make your selections. At that time you can choose a different box, select add-ons or if you have the option, skip. The window closes on the 24th so you have to make sure you visit their website and make your selection! Otherwise you will be charged and will be sent whatever is in your style profile box for that month. You can also opt to send your box to friend as a gift.
They also have mystery boxes, a secret store and other special promotions throughout the month. Anyone can shop the Julep website but Julep Mavens get special discount pricing. They sometimes even have special promo codes for additional discounts and free products. You can only shop the secret store when you take a monthly box.
If being a Julep Maven sounds like something you’d be interested please go through my referral link, just click here! Your first box is free when you use the code FREEBOX.
