Sneak Peek of Julep's 'Fresh' Colors for May & New Boxes

If you haven't signed up for Julep yet, make sure you read the big announcement below and Join before the price increase! 
Julep's May collection - called The Fresh Twist Collectionis so happy and shimmery that I'm having a hard time figuring out which box to select.


If you're unfamiliar with Julep, let me take a minute to explain.
Julep started as a nail parlor. Then they created their own line of products - polishes, spa products and beauty items. They are sold online, but for the best deal you should become a Maven. Mavens are subscribed to their monthly box of products that are curated for your personal style. When I took my style quiz it was determined that I'm 'Classic with a Twist'. Each month on the 20th I'm able to look at that month's collection and view the products picked for me. The best part? If I don't like that month's selections I have choices! I can switch my box for a different style's, I can gift my box to a friend by providing her mailing address, or I can skip that month's box.

Let's take a look at this month's boxes: 

Introducing the Plié Wand 
May's "extra" item is the awesome new Plié Wand.  To learn all about it, click here to watch an introductory video.  Basically it is a magnetic snap on handle extension for your nail polish lids that will give you more control when painting your nails.  I'm excited to see how well I'll be able to paint my right nails using the 'bent' wand position when painting with my left hand.


Boho Glam 

Jeanne - Jet-set Blue Creme
I love creme colors, but I don't think this blue is right for me.
Paulette - Golden Lilac Tulle Shimmer 
This color is very pretty.  I like the golden shimmer, and would wear this.

Laree - Golden Pink Taffeta Shimmer  
Saaya - Golden Apricot Shimmer
My April box was a pink and orange duo, so I probably won't select 
Bombshell this month, but I do love Laree.

Classic with a Twist 

Maddy - Raspberry Sorbet Shimmer
Yes.  I want a pedicure in this color immediately.
Ramona - Muted Lavender Rose Creme
This reminds me of a demure ballerina.  So Pretty.

It Girl

Kam - Vintage Spearmint Creme
Maybe it's because it's a flat creme - which I love - but I'm so drawn to this minty shade.
Jules - Warm Powder Pink Creme
What a great pink!  Fresh, bright, yet still a light pink.  Great color!

Color Crush

(This box was put together for those that wanted three polishes without the plié wand.)
Iona - Hydrangea Blue Creme - Too dark for me.
Jules - Warm Powder Pink Creme - from It Girl Box
Paulette - Golden Lilac Tulle Shimmer - from Boho Glam

Modern Beauty

Brilliance Glycolic Scrub- This dual action exfoliating scrub is like a facial for your hands.
Rock Star Hand Cream - An anti aging combination of shea butter, glycerin, coconut oil and vitamin E.


Featured Add-On: Plie Wand Creativity Kit

Dotting Tool - A rounded tip for dots and hearts.
Striping Tool - Superfine bristles for French manis, swirls and stripes.

First Impression Of My Box:
I'm torn between Classic With a Twist and It Girl.  Maddy and Kam are both such great colors, and Ramona and Jules are great manicure pinks.  I'm goin gto flip a coin and you'll just have to wait and see which one the Mailman brings me!

Julep is getting ready to change up their subscription packages and if I understand correctly, anyone that signs up AFTER May 1st will be enrolled in the new system which starts at $24.99 a month or $19.99/month if you prepay for 3 months at a time.  While the new system will give you more flexibility to customize your box, if you want to be Grandfathered in with the $20 box Mavens, you should sign up in April before the change takes effect.
