Julep Maven

Julep Maven is a subscription service that costs $19.99 a month, in which you receive over $40 worth of Julep products.  When you sign up you take a quiz to determine what kind of "beauty" you are.  Your products are then customized to your beauty profile and consist of 2 bottles of Julep polish and a 3rd item which is usually some kind of Julep beauty product.  (One beauty profile box contains 3 nail polishes rather than the 3rd extra item).

Each month you can log onto Julep.com and view the boxes for that month.  While you are defined as one style, you can change your style for that month based on which polishes you would prefer getting or you can skip that month and not be charged anything.
I have been a Julep Maven since January of this year.  I signed up for the service because I had a $5 coupon code and wanted to see what it was all about.  I have way too many nail polishes already so I usually find myself skipping each month.
According to my beauty profile, I am an American Beauty.  Julep defines an American Beauty as  charming and traditional all at once, this look is the grown up version of the All-American girl-next-door. You enjoy making heads turn in your best cocktail dress and heels, but also love nothing more than relaxing in your favorite tee and jeans. Elegantly simple at times but unafraid of a little indulgence, your wardrobe glows with bright and vivacious hues. (Because that SO clearly fits me).
In addition to your monthly Julep Maven box your subscription always gives you:
  • 20% off all purchases in the Julep Maven Boutique
  • Free shipping on all orders in the Maven Boutique
  • Extra discounts and bonus treats all year long
  • Easy exchanges and returns
  • No commitment. Skip any box and you won’t be charged that month. There’s no limit to the number of months you can skip. You can also cancel your account at any time.
Julep also offers a referral program.  For every 2 friends you refer you will earn a free month.  I had a credit for a free month for referring 2 friends, so I decided to use it on the July Julep box.  I switched it up and chose the Bombshell box.  This month boxes contained a 4th product, an extra nail polish. 
Here is my July box: 



The Bombshell box contained 3 nail polishes (America, Kate, and Chelsea), a lipgloss (in Zinnia) and 3 Atomic Fireball candies.

While I did pick my box, I am not 100% crazy about it. I adore the nail polish in Kate.  I have been really liking white polish and this is a great opaque white with just a hint of pearlescence making it not white out white.  I will definitely get a lot of use of this summer.  I am about 96.7% sure I won't get any use out of the other two polishes only because I am not that big on glitter polish.  I may wear the lip gloss, but I usually go for a lighter nude or pink gloss.

Overall, I think Julep Maven is a great service for anyone wanting to try new polish colors or expand their collection.  Personally, I am just too plain with my polish preference and have way to many colors to begin with.
Julep polishes can now also be found in select Sephora stores and on Sephora.com.  I believe the monthly colors are new releases and may not be available for individual sale through Sephora.
