Yep! My line of reasoning this morning as well. Nevermind that I hit the 17 polish jackpot with last months mystery box and am therefore much more likely to receive dupes. I might have missed something amazing if I let a mystery box pass me by! rolleyes.gif laughs.gif

I'd really like to do some sort of special "blingy" New Years look with those.

 

I am also going to my HS reunion soon, so maybe I'll go something special for that.  I get to show all of my former classmates my beautiful nails!

I know that probably only sounds exciting to true nail polish addicts........... or maybe just me.icon_biggrin.gif

 

they do completely look different on the site- they are waaay prettier in real life!

I'm glad you did. I got the golden Mysters Box, the champagne trio, Kyla and Monica n Tracey. Major damage 😊

I'm too lazy to go look back, but thank you to whomever posted that Julep30 discount code!!!  I saw the swatches of the anniversary trio, and they look better than the previous swatches I saw earlier today.  I managed to snag the trio for 12$ and change!

post #878 of 1450

Thanks so much for posting the code and links Rachel! I freaked out when I saw them! I used an old gift card before I forgot it existed and this was my final order. I love a good deal! icon_cheesygrin.gif

 

post #879 of 1450

I tried using the JULEP30 on the champagne trio, but it didn't work! Did anyone else have this problem with this one item?

I just used the code on the champagne trio by itself, brought it down from 17.99 to like 12.59.  I used the link listed up above for the trio, added it to cart, logged in, added the code to the discount code box, and checked out without a hitch. 

 

Did you put the code in the right box?  I remember in the past people were putting it in the wrong promotion box and having trouble...just a thought.  Or were you sure you spelled it right?  All caps?  I can't think of anything else...

I just tried it and it worked without me even being logged in. Are you looking at the grand total? That's where the discount is reflected. smile.gif

G'morning, ladies! How many of you are enjoying your Maven boxes this morning? I can't wait to try Reiko! I have a full day ahead though, so it will be tomorrow before I have time to redo my manicure. Like other posts I have read this morning, the colors are so much prettier in real life than on the site! I never expected to love Lois from first glance! And I got Fiore, but I am just not feeling it today. Maybe because we finally are having sunshine after over a week of rain (totally unlike July here). I love the new color of the boxes, too. Wonder if it is permanent or just anniversary month? I love that Julep made such a big deal over their anniversary month and I hope they keep it up over the years. I didn't know I wanted flower seeds until Julep's packaging convinced me! I love the quote on the little card ... so perfect for my life right now! And the Champagne trio! OMG ... the packaging feels so luxurious with that thick metal stamped name on it, not to mention the colors are so VERY beautiful. I plan to go back to the Secret Store and pick up a couple for gifts (yes, really!). The friction stick? I don't HATE it, but there's no way I would pay that price for it, but included in the box, I may try it. Who knows? I may fall in love with it! JULEP, you have done it again!!!

post #885 of 1450
I used the friction stick last night on shoes that normally destroy my feet, and it worked extremely well! I put it on my heels and sides where it normally rubs, and I had no problems all night wearing them! I've had problems just going to dinner and gettin bad blisters in these shoes so I think it's a win. (They're not even heels, they're just really stiff flats that need to be broken in)

so i'm really hoping that julep will realize just how many mystery boxes they've sold at the $20.99 price tag rather than $24.99. i was new to julep when they were $19.99 and only beginning my addiction, so i was super picky about shades. now i appreciate a wider range of colors, finishes and textures but i haven't bought a mystery box because of the price increase. i can only imagine that if people knew about the code, they'll see a surge in mystery box purchases.

I was thinking about this earlier too. If there is going to be another mystery box this month then I know I'll be far less likely to buy it at $24.99, especially if the value is lower ($70 vs $100), since I got the golden box for $20.99. It would be awesome if they started offering them at $19.99 again. Or at the very least, I hope that code still works ;-)

Just curious; even though, I didn't pay a Julep sub box = no secret store. Even though r4chel77 posted all links and I was able to click it all and saw it all. Wonder if I could buy some ?

Great result! I'm looking forward to trying it if my box ever arrives!

Yes, lots of people have reported success with this up-thread.

OMG wow ugh I'm staying put for a mystery box. I don't have alot of julep polishes. Started in April 2013, skipped twice and got a mystery box last month. That's it. I just got an email for a trip ($20). Wonder beauty bio would work ? It did before I got this email today.

PSA for anyone interested in buying some Zoya polishes: free shipping today with code YAY.

After 3 months, I have always gotten my box on the 1st. From Seattle to rural West Tennessee. BUT, my mail does not run until 3pm CST. Maybe if you get your mail earlier, it didn't have time to get there? Or if you live in a large area, it could be the local post office's slack?

Yes thanks to r4chel77 I was able to go through the links she posted and buy even though I skipped this month. Thanks also to the code you enablers posted I got the mystery box and Kyla. This is my first mystery box. I hope I don't get any dupes. I only have 12 Juleps and I got a repeat in the CEW box. It was Jackie, which is a great color, but I had bought it at the warehouse sale. I got 9 of my 12 at the warehouse sale. After I went through the link i was able to add to shopping bag and sign in to my account. Can't wait to see what I get!

I live in Canada - so it does take a little while longer. No worries though. It gets here on a Monday usually always, but this Monday is a holiday for us, so hopefully, fingers crossed, it will be here for Tuesday!

 

Also the Julep30 code only works ONCE so make sure you have everything you want in your cart when you are going to use it - I learnt the hard way.

post #898 of 1450

I just got an email from Julep that the Champagne Trio is on sale for $20, and the BEAUTYBIO code worked, so I got it for $10! I didn't have Secret Store access, since I didn't get my box this month, and I was worried that if I tried to make a Secret Store purchase, they would cancel my order. Hopefully they just let all the orders go through!

There has only been 2 mystery boxes for me so far ... June's Destination(?) which didn't interest me and the July's where I really wanted the two exclusive glitters. So I only knew the one price of $24.99. But I knew when I saw the Golden Mystery Box at $29.99 IN THE SECRET STORE, that it was going to be good. I just KNOW it. If I get disappointed, then so be it. I will have to eat my words. But I am wondering .... will there be a regular Mystery Box in August? I'm thinking not. Do you have any knowledge about it? The one thing that I am disappointed about is that I jumped on the Secret Store items I wanted and then find out later in the day about the JULEP30 code. I could have SAVED so much if I had just waited a few hours! But it enabled me to go back and pick up a couple of things I was wavering over. I have so many new polishes coming that I think I could paint each digit a different color and still have several days before I repeat!

post #900 of 1450

Ugh, I caved on a second Golden box and Rockstar crème. I know I bought a Golden box yesterday, but I didn't have a coupon code then so buying another today reduces the price of the first box, AMIRITE???
