I wrote about about ZOYA before when they had a nice deal going and now it's JULEP's turn. Please understand that *this is not a sponsored post and all opinions are my own*, though I am part of their rewards program, which recently became a million times better and that's what I want to share with you today (*ahem* coupon below!).
Julep is my favorite nail polish. It's made without the 4 biggest toxins, but it goes on so beautifully. I absolutely love the colors, and I love the durability. In fact, I brushed on two coats of my favorite color, Sienna, plus one top coat the day before we left for Europe.(that top coat is key)
WOW! Can you believe how long they held up? If I had chosen to redo them, only my index fingers would have needed any touching up. All others looked awesome still, not a speck of chipping! My nails do grow super fast, so there was a gap between my cuticle and the color, but that's hardly something the polish can control.
My only complaint with Julep is the price tag. It's about twice as expensive as Zoya for half the amount of product. But the ease of application and general quality of the product definitely makes up for that. Plus, they recently revamped their rewards program and it's a million times better. Being a 'Maven' means that every month you can choose between 6 different 'Maven boxes' to purchase. Each box usually contains 2 shades of nail polish + a product, but I've seen as many as 6 bottles of polish in the box. The boxes are $19.99 and there is no charge for shipping. You can also add on bottles of color for $4.99. Like most reward programs, you can choose to skip each or every month! I definitely don't order my box every month- I really don't need that much product- but I have ordered about 3 since becoming a Maven and have been very happy with each one.
This is a shade from my latest box called Nora. It's a purple/blue/grey shimmer that is somehow matte. It came with a matte khaki green shimmer called Hailee and then an awesome top coat that turns any regular shade of polish into a matte polish.If you're interested in learning more about the Maven program with Julep- use THIS LINK. When you use my link I earn Jules and you can get your first box for half off. Be sure to add the code "MAVEN50" at checkout. Ahh! I was excited when I saw that and wanted to share it with you, in case you've been interested in trying their polish but don't want to pay a ton of money.
That's all for today! I hope your weekend was excellent. Mine was fantastic! All the best and as always, thanks for reading!
