Kai? I couldn't find this on the site!

just because you spent your points doesn't mean you didn't earn 350 of them before getting to vib status.

 

 

anyways, kai is a random new sea salt shade only available currently as an intro box add-on.. i know it bugs me and some of you when they don't give actual mavens exclusive things, giving them others first.. the tricky part is that intro boxes are for mavens, so it technically doesn't break the promise that mavens get items first.

 

the white gold has glitter but it definitely did not under the maven window swatches. anyone find that confusing? also, the august shades come up as 'coming soon' but fiore can be added now.

i picked up the sephora by opi s-age is just a number; you might like it as a distant dupe. it has a blue duotone but i don't think it shows up much when you paint with it. it's more olive gold than green but unless you're obsessed with alchimie, it should be a satisfying dupe. it looks a lot more like chanel's peridot though. i also agree with the julep statement: i'm totally near-praying they come out with gorgeous awesome collections for the fall that match the may/jazz one in quality and creativity.

WOW! I hope you get it ... that would be like a dream job!!! Keep us posted .... If you need references, point 'em towards us, LOL!

I wondered if something was going on with them and OPI ... this is not the first pick sale on the Sephora OPI colors this summer. And I don't shop enough to realize they have their own brand of polish! I usually remain loyal to just a few brands .... Deborah Lippmann is one of them and Beauty.com just sent me a free offer for one of her polishes with a $20 site purchase. No problem! I shop there a lot ... as a matter of fact, most of my shopping is online.

NO, I do not like that seasoned Mavens do not get offered new polishes first! They have a new sea salt finish for a beginning Maven and not for us who have been begging for more choices in finishes??? That's just not RIGHT! 

 

As for white gold, I hope the glitter doesn't show up much, I was hoping for a simpler color with this particular color ... and as someone said, Reiko is beautiful! I can't wait to get it on my fingers!!!

If you guys/gals/fellow nail enthusiats miss me tonight, the cardiologist is sending me for sleep study to verify sleep apnea and preliminary study for pulmonary hypertension. I did an oxygen study last week and I was wiped out the next day, so I may miss some posts if y'all get very talkative!

I searched for the champagne trio too- it does come up,  good news- the white gold apparently has gold glitter in it! (based on the close up round swatch of color), bad news- it's gonna be waaaay more expensive to purchase separately if you didn't get it as an add on ($33.60 w/ the maven discount!) icon_eek.gif

That's ridiculous about the price on trio. I'm glad that I skipped the sub box and hope for one of those in mystery box bec someone mentioned that they will go big on mystery box. *🙏*

OR expanding Sephora X nail collection? I could talk to them and ask for a manager to find out what's the scoop? I snatched up a couple of nail stickers.

okay but seriously, who has 5,000 and 10,000 points? devout followers of sephora since it first opened. i always thought having ~1500 was top notch, but i am down to 148. lol

I got that email too. Insane! I've reached up to 1800 points before. I got a new set of Josie Maran Argan oil for 500 points. I'm extremely picky about samples. Right now, I have about 850 points. Lately, I've been spending elsewhere for the last year since I relocated.

Thanks, swimsalot! Yes, not knowing is frustrating, but what I dread is the wait between now and the cardiiology ultrasound and other tests on August 6. It will drag on forever! At least I will have a Julep box to brighten one of my nights! Really looking forward to seeing the Champagne Trio in my collection!

Yes, ma'am! I know exhausted well. The good kind of blissful, happy, thankful exhausted that only a mother of a toddler can know! My picture actually needs updating, but there are so few pics of the two of us together. The current one is from his first bday, & that was a year ago! Time is flying. That is, unless you are waiting for nail polish!
I MIGHT have opened a 2nd Maven acct to snag that sea salt finish...yeah, I did that. I got the it girl intro box for free, & added on Kia (the sea salt finish), Portia, freedom polymer top coat, & drew plus a mystery item. I know...I'm nuts.

I was thinking of doing that myself but I didn't know if would work. Do you have to use a different email address. And by the way I also remember those days with a two-year-old whose his head gets heavy and his body droops and he's just ready to sleep. Thank God for that. That's when i would do my nails.
All kids look sooo cute when they are asleep,even my college-aged son.
Enjoy your little one time really does fly.

I used a different email address & billing address (it wouldn't process under the same billing address). I was able to use the same mailing address, though! I just can't believe they made a new color only available as an add-on to intro boxes! Maybe it will show up in the secret store? Who knows!
post #563 of 1450

I want to do the buy a polish get Fireworks free but Fireworks is out of stock at the moment on the site so does that mean I can't get the polish for free? :(

i honestly did open up a new account, too. the free code still works but that's a choice people can leave up to themselves i guess.

Don't be surprised if in a day or two you get an email saying they cancelled your order. I tried opening a second account before and they emailed me saying the free box is only 1 per household frown.gif

Can someone post a picture of Kai? What are the other colours in the It Girl intro box?

I opened a second Maven account last month, used a different email address and used my daughter's name but the same billing and shipping address, and had no problems.  Got the free box with no issues.  Yeah, I'm bad.......

Did you use a different credit card??

here's kai!

 

 

honestly, i think they probably don't care so much about the free box code being used more than once per person (not worth speculated as i'm sure anyone probably frowns upon it) as they do about people having multiple memberships. that's why existing mavens can't ever access the intro boxes. i did it a few times, actually, because i wanted the set.  often they contain shades that are out of stock (i.e. paris, coco and etta went out of stock for a while). also, before upgrading was an option, some people had multiple accounts so they could access more of the collection during the maven window.

From what I saw there were only limited numbers of those rewards. I think the 10k point rewards only have 1 of each available.
