You may be wondering why it took me so long this month to get up my review of my Julep Maven Box. To be honest, it is a combination of the fact that I did not receive my box until November 8th and with how busy I have been with school and other polish reviews. Let me show you what I got in the November box, and tell you more about Julep’s new changes.
Since the last time I posted about Julep, a lot has changed! The company completely re-vamped their website, and unveiled a new rewards program that lets members earn Jules, or points, in a variety of ways. Although these changes are for the better in the long run, Julep struggled a bit with the launch of their new site, and I think that is why I didn’t receive my box for so long. Nonetheless, my box was just as wonderful as usual when it arrived. I got the It Girl Box, which came with two of the coveted Julep suede nail polishes, a matte top coat, and a few nail polish remover wipes. I apologize for the photo quality — I forgot to take a picture with my camera, so this is from Instagram!
The first polish I got this month is Hailee, a khaki green suede. A suede polish is just as it sounds — it has a matte finish that is multidimensional to look like suede fabric. Hailee is very pretty, but I think it looks more of a grey or silver than a green, but it depends on the lighting. In terms of formula, Hailee is great! It is very easy to apply, and is opaque in two coats. Hailee also dries very quickly. I would not wear this polish every day, but it is definitely a unique color that I haven’t seen before.
The other polish I received in my November box is Nora, what Julep calls a “silver, aubergine suede.” In other words, Nora is a gorgeous deep purple! Just like with Hailee, Nora’s forumla is great. It is opaque in two coats, and dries quickly. Nora is definitely my favorite of the two polishes. I am much more into purple polishes than khakis!
All in all, I did like my November Julep Box. I wish I had gotten it earlier in the month like I have in the past, but hopefully Julep has figured out their issues now. I do have to say that I am really excited for the December Julep Box. They were released today, and are all gorgeous, holiday glitters! Join Julep today and enter code TWOFREE at checkout.
