Julep: November 2012 boxes

Recommended Posts

I didn't see a thread for this yet so, here it is! I see that they have already released 1 spoiler:

 

 

 

700

 

I literally Just bought the Essie version because we didn't get this in the October box. I guess it will be all matte-all the time!

 

Any thoughts on what else they'll be send out this month?

I can't believe we're already talking about November!

 

(Pst, I moved it over from the subscription boxes group over here to the Julep group.)

I've been wanting a matte for a while, and I have referral credits so this is really exciting for me. I guess this is a good compromise on the fact we didn't get matte last month and got crackle instead )<

 

Hopefully the quality of the matte top will be good...

I've never tried the suede polishes or matte topcoat before, so my interest is peaked.

 

Question for those of you that have tried the suede polishes or who are familiar with them - what kind of a topcoat (if any) do you use with it? I'm assuming a normal topcoat would ruin the "suede" look, but if you forgo a topcoat, won't it chip?

 

Any insights from those who have already tried them would be wonderful! :)

I don't have the suedes (yet), but other matte polishes, if you apply a normal topcoat, it will turn into a glossy finish. You really do need a matte topcoat for matte polishes to get the intended effect. The reverse is true if you use a matte topcoat on a glossy polish. Though there the level of matte is dependant on the base polish. Some have a subtle matte and others are more prominent.
 

And suedes, yay! I'm going to cave and get the whole set since I've been waiting for them, but refuse to buy them at Sephora for full price.

Thanks! So, I should probably use a matte topcoat with the suede polishes, I'm assuming?

I don't think it matters. The suede/matte finish will be the same and matte chips pretty easily no matter what you do... adding the top coat here doesn't help. It's mostly about the finish rather than protecting your mani

I have Minka & Nora from the Suede collection. I do own a matte topcoat from Butter London but haven't been using it over the suede. Minka is GORGEOUS! Nora is great as well but Minka became my one of favorite nail polish colors the moment I put it on. They covered really well with one coat but because I knew I wasn't going to use a topcoat I used two. I haven't had much chipping just the usual tip wear that I get even when using a topcoat. I've gotten a lot of compliments on both colors and am looking forward to getting the rest of the suede colors.

Hey!  Check your jules balances...I just got 300 extra points and it says "Thanks for being a Julep Maven"...does this mean that all of the existing Mavens are now getting the sign up bonus?  I only had my referral points as of a couple of days ago.

I just thought of something else...do you think with the new program this means we won't be forced to use up our referral points on boxes we don't like?  Can I actually skip now?  That would be amazing.  I was also really hesitant to buy the monthly upgrade box before because I didn't know if I'd waste a free month by doing that.  I am looking forward to seeing how exactly this works in a few days.  I see that the boxes in the maven shop have a "use your points" drop down when you click on more details, so I'm guessing it's like that.  I just hope I don't get sent a box if I don't affirmatively choose something.

Got the 300 points as well. I have 2 accounts... one is really old, so I couldn't recall which I was using. Oops. But the one with the Jules is obv. the one that I've been using, which makes sense since my other account got a "come back!" email. Glad they gave us long time Mavens something though.

What is the code?

I'm officially part of a no-buy, and I am not super excited about suedes/matte, so I don't think I'll have trouble skipping this month. We shall see for certain when they release the actual boxes.

lol i don't mean to be bumping both threads, but they are more relevant topics in one than the other.

 

From the FB wall:

Hey Mavens we want to update you on a few things! If you haven't received a response back from our CS team, we want to assure you that we have received your email or voicemail and we are actively working on answering any and all questions as soon as possible.

Here are a few things to note:

1. If you are having trouble logging in, click here for more info http://bit.ly/TwEb4i

2. Julep Jules: A
few of you are missing Jules in your account, we are currently cross checking ALL accounts with referrals and making sure each account is up to date. Thank you for your patience as we transition to a new and exciting rewards program!

*SPOILER ALERT: To thank everyone this month we are doing TRIPLE JULES if you take your November Maven Box. What does this mean? Instead of the 300 Jules you normally get for taking your monthly box you will be getting 900 Jules!

Want more info about Jules? Click here: http://www.julep.com/rewards.html

 

I don't know if that counts for people who are taking them and using their referral credits (probably not). But 900 Jules is practically half a box.
