Near-Freebie Alert: Become a Julep Maven for $.01!

So, I've been dragging my heels on becoming a Julep Maven. But after seeing an awesomely irresistible special a few hours ago, as well as a few nice polishes coming down the pipe, I actually gave in.

For those who don't know about Julep, it's actually a pretty interesting idea. For $19.99 a month, you receive $40 worth of products and at least two of them are nail polishes. You take a style quiz and are given one of five beauty titles: American Beauty, Boho Glam, Classic with a Twist, Bombshell, and It Girl. (Note: I was chosen an American Beauty!) But don't feel locked into that. You can preview the next month's box and switch types between the 20th-24th and your box will ship on the 27th. For example, I switched my box to a Classic with a Twist. Though I keep going back and forth between that (a shimmery purple and a sheer pink) and Boho Glam (a salmon and a sheer blue glitter). Please give me your thoughts on that, by the way... photos are at the bottom.

You can pay for the whole thing up front, bi-yearly, quarterly, or monthly. I chose monthly because it looks a heck of a lot better on my credit card bill. And literally, this month there will be a $.01 next to my Julep charge. Seriously. With shipping and everything.

So how do I get a Maven box for a penny? You can click HERE and enter the code COLOR2012 when you sign up.

Full disclosure, that link is my referral page and I do get a credit for every person I refer. So if you are uncomfortable with that, you can just visit to sign up.

And here are the photos of the Boho Glam and Classic with a Twist boxes, as well as the others. Help me make a decision and tell me which you would pick for the March box. (I would DEFINITELY click on them to make them bigger for the full effect.)

Happy shopping!

  1. I don't mind using your referral link! Just think of me when you use the polish I help you get :)

    So this is probably a stupid question, but none of the combos you have posted here were given when I took the quiz. Should I expect my box to be what I saw on Julep, or will it be what I see here? Thanks!

  2. Thanks, Jen! The ones I posted are the March boxes. The ones you are seeing on the site are the February boxes. The boxes are sent out a few days before the end of the previous month, so we'll both be receiving a March box as our first. :) Which box did you have your eye on?

  3. Oy vey, I was able to figure it out in the end. Coming in so close to the end of the month managed to confuse me :P

    I'm going to be getting the It girl for the promo/February box, but I am thinking of switching it up to Boho Glam for March. I better decide soon though! :D
