Julep Maven-May 2012 Boxes

Recommended Posts

May boxes are up! I'll post pictures later if someone else doesn't do it, but I don't know how to choose this month! I really want the yellow polish but I also want the pedi stuff. Might be adding an extra to my order. :)

 

 

Edit: I've opted to get it girl and add on the pedi prep. My box is free this month so 9.99 isn't bad. :)

I am supposed to get American Beauty but there is a polish color called Ellie.  My daughter's name is Eleanor and I hate when someone tries to call her Ellie...lol.

 

I am actually thinking about getting Classic with a Twist as I have a ton of new polish from my mystery boxes and could use the pedi stuff more.

I'm not really a fan of my It Girl Box this month. I usually go Wow, I've got to have that!! This month... Not so much. I like the orange but I don't really care for the magnetic shade. I don't need any pedi stuff either so, I may just skip May. Lol.

Skipped on my second account. My other account I'm sticking to It Girl. Not a huge fan of everything this month but I like the colors enough to get it. However, I may or may not have just bought 18 Zoya polishes with their earth day exchange promo (half off) ;)

See Im in love with It Girl. I didn't even like my Julep polishes, but a nail polish with my name, the pedi stuff, and that lemon sorbet are calling my name.

 

$25 for Bombshell and lemon sorbet nail polish seems ridiculous.

 

Do you guys think Julep nail polish is good? Did I just have bad nail polishes in my first box (I had Charlotte, Jodie, and Melissa)

 

Also, how long do I have to decide if I want to switch boxes?

I think you have four days to decide. smile.gif

 

I'm a Bombshell and I'm liking it this month though I'm just dying to try a magnetic polish and LOVE the lemon color It Girl has. icon_eek.gifheart.gif Oh man, decisions! 

 

As for Julep's polishes, it's almost all I wear anymore and I really do like them. I have over twenty now and only a couple have been a bit on the too thick side. They last about a week for me on my nails, with no chips. As a pedicure polish the color I have on now has lasted almost a month and still looks fab.

Okay I went for it. I decided May is my graduation month. It's all about treating myself. So I got Bombshell and Nessa as an Add-on.

If you cancel your membership but still have an account do you have to resubscribe and get a welcome box? I wish there would have been an option to put your membership on hold like netflix!

I think you probably have to email them. But that's really weird that the form isn't there anymore!

 

I'm excited about this months boxes. I think the colors are really fun and bright which is something I really was hoping for!

My original style profiles are American Beauty and Boho Glam. I switched out my American Beauty for It girl, and then did the Add On feature to get the two colors from the Bombshell box because I really want those too! It's nice that they let us do that.

Now I have to figure out a way to get the Orange Footsoak! I guess I could add it on to my other box.

@HelloLeilani

 

Can I ask how you applied the polish to have so little chipping for a week.

 

I did a base coat, two coats of Julep polish, and a top coat and mine was chipping within a day. Should I have applied two top coats? I was so unimpressed with the polish/chipping that I canceled my sub today.

Oh, that sucks! I have really good luck with my Julep polish and I do generally the same thing as you. Lately, I've been using my Nailtiques before my base coat and my polish has been lasting extra long. smile.gif

Do you guys know when it charges your account. I have a free month but want to do some addons but i transferred from my savings too many times this month and don't want to risk over drafting - i usually only leave just enough in my checking for the week. hence the too many savings transfers- lol.

Im not really feeling any of the magnetic things...so I may just get Classic with a Twist this time :)

I'm 99% sure that it charges your account on the 27th.

page5- I would suggest trying different top coats to see which one gives you longer-lasting results. You may have to spend a little bit more money on it but it will give you more staying power for your mani. I had this problem with a lot of the cheaper top coats. I like Seche-Vite or Sally Hanson Insta-dry.

You can put it on hold! Just skip your box every month and you won't get charged. I suppose it's sort of a pain to remember to skip it, but then you can keep your sub and just get your box when you're ready.

free box this month! i'm sticking with my it girl. i'm normally not a shimmer person and was hoping for more cremes (i know, i shouldn't have skipped last month) but i also like the colors in the it girl box so i'm going to try them out. i think i'm going to add on Sarah as well because i've been obsessed with coral lately.

 

now if only they would update my billing info for me so i can do my add ons. i tried calling, no one answered, so i sent an email.

I changed mine from Classic with a twist box to Bombshell. Will they be emailing me a confirmation? It has not changed under My Account

    • While  the summers are great for outdoor activities, it does take toll on your skin. The burning sun, humidity and pollution not only wipes off your natural glow but also makes your skin rough and unclear. Therefore, it's important to care for your skin to keep it glowing. Here are some skincare tips to follow this summer season: Exfoliate: It's important to exfoliate to your skin to remove the dead skin cells, grim and dirt, especially in the summers. Do this at lease 2-3 a times a week to get good skin.     Make Sunscreen Your BFF: They say, "Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer". The same applies to Sunscreen - Make it your BFF even if you don't like it. Keep in mind, you cannot have good skin if you don't use sunscreen, especially in the summers. So, invest in a good one and ensure application every 2-3 hours.   Drink Lots of Water: This is one of the most important skincare tips to follow during summers. A minimum of 2.5 or 3 liters of water is what you will need to stay hydrated and fresh, which in turn, will also benefit in your skin.   Eat Healthy: It's advisable to eat healthy during summers. Add a lot fruits and green vegetables  to your diet. Also, include fresh juices that will keep your hydrated all day long. So, now you know these skincare tips, ensure you put them to use and reap its benefits. 
    • I have a question for make up artists. I am a makeup artist working a gig with a photographer for a shoot that’s going to be doing 20 min headshots all day long. I think we have 10 people signed up for one day so far starting at 11am. I’m currently negotiating my fee and am asking $50 a person/ headshot for the day.  I don’t want to underrate myself ( I usually charge a flat fee for one 2-3 hour headshot session) , but I feel this fee is fair given it’s my makeup supplies, time and artistry, and I will be there all day.   Any thoughts or feedback about this and if you’ve had similar jobs that designated a specific fee given the high volume of faces I’ll be doing for this shoot.
    • I want to share with you all a product that has given me incredible results. It is the LED Light mask, each color helps to improve some aspect of the skin, led light therapy is used in spas, saloons... the fact is that I bought it at biomasktherapy.com I got it, I took a picture before using it and after two weeks I noticed some incredible changes, it has improved the acne, spots, wrinkles, it has left the skin clearer and especially I had a big change around my eyes area, is the change that has surprised me most, love it. I use the mask everyday for 30 minutes. I am sharing the photo of before/after two weeks results of use :) What's your experience with LED light therapy? 
    • Well, choosing a right hair straighter is very important. If you go for the choice of a wrong one it may result in damaging your hair in long ru. If asked from me I prefer to use Phillips straightener. Its a good and reputed brand . Also, the quality of product is really good.  Also, you must care about your hair before applying rod or an iron to it. For that you need to take help of hair protecting serums to use before ironing hair. That will prevent your hair from damage.
    • Bollywood’s superstar, Sonam Kapoor is an International fashion icon, adored for her style. Be it the red carpet, airport looks, public appearances, etc. she always dressed on point, giving us major fashion goals. Below are some styling tips given by the fashionista herself. 1.      Add A Pop of Colour: Do you own a lot of monochromes and greys? If yes, it’s time to add some bright colours to your wardrobe. Include some reds, blues, yellows and pinks and own it like a boss!   2.      Invest in Statement Pieces: Sonam Kapoor firmly believes in investing in statement pieces such as large necklaces, sequined purses, brooches or even cocktail rings. Most of these come within the budget and look absolutely stunning.   3.      Indian is NOT Boring: If you prefer donning Indian clothes, don’t think it’s boring. You could always pair your sarees or salwar suits with attractive accessories such as bling jhumkas or a statement clutch.   4.      Experiment with Styles: Never stop experimenting. A change in your looks every now and then is a good thing. A new hairstyle, a different saree drape, etc. are some styles you should try out.   5.      Let Your Eyes Do the Talking: Sonam Kapoor loves eye make-up. Whether it’s just a kajal with a lip gloss or shimmering eye shadow or even some dramatic eye make-up, she neve shies away from experimenting with her looks that steal the show.
