Review: Julep Maven Intro Box│Classic with a Twist

julep 1

A few weeks ago i got an email from Julep Maven, they were offering an intro box which includes at least 2 nail polishes of 8ml each and other mani/pedi product. I got hooked instantly because the price was not the regular $19.99 but a PENNY! can you believe it? $0.01 for all these goodies? I was in! If you don't know Julep yet: a nail and foot care brand with four boutique nail parlors in the Seattle area. You can sign up to get a monthly box with polishes and nail care products. Firstly, you take a quiz to find out which style fits you best, there are a few - American Beauty, Boho Glam, Classic with a Twist, It Girl & Bombshell. I was matched with Classic with a Twist.

The Best Pedi Créme Ever!: A shea butter and coconut oil cream that nourishes, hydrates and exfoliates at the same time! I tried it as directed, applied it on my feet at night and when I woke up they were softer. I love the scent, it has a cucumber/minty smell along with green tea. I don't know what I'm saying, but it smells amazing!

Kate: is a soft white pearl. Now, I had never applied white polish on my nails. I find really hard to pull off a white nail. This polish came half-open, which made it sticky so application was even harder! :( However, the colour is really pretty because it's not plain/boring white. I will probably be using this to make small decorations only.

Rose: is a watermelon red creme. I usually don't wear reds, but watermelon is lovely. Different from Kate, this polish has better texture (obviously, because it was sealed!) and I only needed 2 coats to get a uniform colour. I really like this one, I will be using it quite often.

The packaging is very classy, the brush provides easy application and a nice finish. I like the size because let's get real, will I ever finish a 15 ml nail varnish? Most likely no. And these have 8ml, which is a decent size and they're also really easy to store for it's shape. My only complaint is that the caps don't fit or don't close completely and I think that's why one of the polishes arrived half open, but that's a manufacturing problem. I hope they don't dry because of this though.

  5. I'm supposed to be Classic with a Twist as well, but I skipped this time because the colors weren't unique to me.
