Julep Maven - Bombshell box review

In addition to my Birchbox, Glossybox , I had enrolled in the Julep Maven box last month. This is not a sampling service. Instead they send you two full size nail colours every month. Each one retails for $14 so for $20 a month, you get a pretty good deal. You also get 20% off and free shipping on their website. The introductory box is only $4.99 (including shipping) and you can select one of their five introductory boxes. I chose the bombshell box.
These were the contents of my box,



It had two cute toe separators, a pedi creme and two fabulous nail polishes. I die for the poppy red called Natasha and a shiny glittery gold nail polish aptly called Oscar.
The nail colours are very opaque and incredibly smooth to apply. The glitter polish is more sheer but as you can see on my accent nail, it still looks amazing after a couple of coats.

Julep Natasha and Oscar
Its safe to say that I love the Julep Maven box and I'm not even a nail colour person. I'm also extremely impressed by their great customer service. Though the colors were amazing, I skipped the August box.  I wanted to wait and see their quality and now I'm regretting skipping it. I may not continue the service for more than a few months and that is only because there is something called "too many nail colours" for me but if you are a nail colour person, this box is strongly recommended. Even if you are not into nail colours,  you can skip any month you don't like and go for the months that you love. Which is what I'm going to do. If you would like to try out the first month for $4.99, click here to sign up. The link is my referral link and if you sign up through that, I get points. Thank you in case you do. Would you buy this service, even for a few months?

Thanks for reading,
