CHECK OUT MY UPDATED REVIEW AND THOUGHTS ON JULEP MAVEN POLISHES BY CLICKING HERE
Last month I signed up for Julep Maven Nail Polish subscription, because my one of my favorite Beauty Bloggers BeautyByKrystal (please check out her blog she is amazing) had a coupon code, which allowed me to try out the 1st box for only 1 penny!
I was a little hesitant at first because regular price is $19.99 for a couple of polishes, and in case you are not familiar with Julep Maven, it's a subscription service so every month you pay $19.99 and you get a different box of 3 polishes, or at times 2 polishes with a hand cream. I was glad to try it out and give it a chance since all I am used to are drugstore nail polishes.
Well the box arrived so fast, really within a week, I was so amazed, and the packaging was super cute...I am a sucker for cute packaging! Well I was excited to try the polishes, because for $19.99 I really was expecting some amazing nail color!
Upon trying all three polishes I was not impressed at all, so let's start with the Cons.
- The polish itself was very runny which made it very hard to achieve a perfect look (without uneven edges); it really was a big mess.
- Polish brush was flimsy which added to the uneven mess on my nails.
- I felt that it needed at least 2 coats to even look presentable because 1 coat can come off rather uneven and streaky.
- The polish did dry fairly quickly.
- It lasted a good 4 days before I saw some chipping.
Something to keep in mind, the polishes on their own are $14.99, but in the box they $19.99, which either way is ridiculous considering I've purchased better polishes for a cheaper price tag. However I think if you are a nail polish fanatic and don't mind applying several coats then you might want to sign up for this service, but for myself I went ahead and canceled this morning, seeing that I don't want to spend $19.99 every month on nail polishes.
If you are interested, I believe the discount code is still available so when you go to sign up and add a box to your checkout cart enter the code PENNY, and you should still be able to get your 1st box for only 1 penny. Click on the picture below which will take you to the Julep Maven site.
KEEP IN MIND THE ONLY WAY TO CANCEL THE SERVICE IS TO CALL THEM, AND IT MUST BE DONE BY THE 20TH-24TH OF THE MONTH, OTHERWISE YOU WILL GET CHARGED FOR THE NEXT MONTH, THEIR NUMBER IS 877-651-3292.
Have you tried these polishes? What do you think about them?
