I ended up skipping my January Julep Maven box and I may skip a few more boxes this year because there is only so much more nail polish I need. (LOL) I mean, I will *always* want more but I’m trying to slow down a bit. However, Julep has gotten me hooked on some of their other products so I needed to re-up on a few… plus a few nail polishes. (So sue me. :))

Julep Maven

Price: $20/month but varies by what you choose

Box Type: Mostly nail polish, but also some beauty and skincare products

Why you’ll love it: This is one of the best boxes out there because you get to actually choose what you get! Each month, Julep releases a new collection of different nail polish colors, beauty and skincare products and you get to choose which ones you want in your box.

This month, I got 3 products in my box and one nail polish “add-on” bringing my total to $33.76. So let’s see everything up close!

Adventurous Aquarius (Expressive Blue Violet); Jolene (Iron Ore Metallic)

Technically, Adventurous Aquarius was my “Add-on” product, but I thought I’d review the polishes together, since those are the new things! I know I have a million blue polishes but this one has the most gorgeous violet sheen to it, which you can see in that picture below. I also can’t resist a good silver chrome-y polish so I had to have Jolene.

I realize everything else in the picture on the left is way light but this was the only way for you to see the violet sheen of Adventurous Aquarius. On the right is a swatch of Jolene.

Ta Da! Quick Dry Drops ($14.40): I love this stuff! I’ve bought several bottles in the past and I finally ran out so of course I needed to get more. I use these every time I paint my nails!

What Your Skin Needs Restorative Facial Milk ($30.40): This is another product that I’ve purchased several times. This is such a great, lightweight balancing serum/milky product. When I use this, my skin just sort of feels like my skin but better. You know, not dry but not overly moisturized and greasy. Just skin! I like using this after I wash my face before I go to the gym. I don’t want to wear a heavy cream right before I’m about to get all sweaty but my skin is too dry to wear nothing. In conclusion, I love this.


Final Grade: A

I can’t complain when I pick everything in my February Julep Maven box! I love the nail polish colors I chose and of course I love my can’t-live-without basics!
