Julep: December 2012

Recommended Posts

I didn't notice a thread on this yet and we're only four days away from choosing our styles.  Can you believe it's almost December?

 

Anyways, I found a sneak peak on a blog today of what's going to be in the boxes...

 

700

 

 

It's from the "My Subscription Addiction" blog.  Hopefully it's okay to link it.  If not let me know!

Eek!! I really want to try that foot scrub! And hopefully the glitter polishes will be easy to take off. I hate when glitter polish WILL NOT COME OFF... It deters me from using them often.

So I'm not tempted lol. I've realized I'm usually on the fence about boxes and I'm not a huge fan of the formulas. I think I'd rather just go to Trade Secret, Sephora, or whatever store and buy polishes myself. Zoya is my favorite brand at the moment and I could just splurge and treat myself every other month if I cancel Julep....who knows, I may get back on the wagon later. But I'll cancel and just watch for a while. :)

I love glitters!  I'm excited haha.  Also kind of a pedi freak so I'll dig being able to try the foot scrub.  We'll see about the ring.  I have the skull ring and skull bracelet from Halloween and they are both staples in my wardrobe now (it's Halloween every day for me) so I can't imagine I won't end up digging the DIY ring :)  Cool, looking to be a good months, so long as they can get over the shipping debacles of their new website month.

There's the elmer's glue trick - just type in elmer's glue glitter nail polish into google - lots of sites have instructions; but basically if you use the glue as a base you can literally just peel it off for easy-peasy glitter removal.

yup, there is also felt and the foil trick. Lots of easier ways to get the polish off.

I have no idea if I'll be skipping or not.  Even if I like the colors I might skip just cause I will be spending money on holiday shopping and such.  Don't know yet.  Guess I'll have to see what the colors are.

Mreh. I'm not a fan of glitters in general, so none of the boxes are THAT appealing to me. I love Cindy and I'm really into the idea of Julia, but I feel like that looks like a Zoya Daul type dupe and that colour was a huge disappointment on me. I'm still going to pick the AB box though since nothing else really appeals to me at all. and I'm mostly in it for the addons.

 

The glitter and glow collection feaures: Vivien, Carly, Kathleen, Harper, Hilary

 

Harper and Hilary are already in this month so it kind of deters from getting Bombshell and It Girl. Maybe I'll get multiples of the Glitter and Glow and do a blog giveaway.

I'm switching to It Girl with Hilary and Patti as add-ons.  I'm a sucker for glitters.  icon_lol.gif

 

Edited...

 

Maybe.  I went to skip because I just now looked at Sephora's Black Friday sale and I figured I'd rather buy presents than nail polishes.  When I did go to skip, it said the golden boxes this month will be the "Oprah's Favorite Things" curated box.  That'd be awesome to get, but gosh..this is a tough decision for me!

Anyone know if they will also be offering a Maven's Choice box within the next few days? Seems they have done that for the past two months.....

 

There's not one particular box that I can say I "love," but there are a few polishes I'm really into but they're not being offered together.

Dear Julep,

 

I hate you this month. I'm torn. Stick with a normal box for 2000 Jules or upgrade to the big box for 5,000 Jules and add on the Glitter & Glow set for 2000 Jules? That's almost four months worth of subscriptions.

If it makes you feel better, I sort of committed myself to the Glitter & Glow set x5. I was like holy crap, but for 2000 more jules it's worth it to get 2 more box.es I'm going to do a giveaway and give the 3 others to friends. I'm paying for the box itself and using credits for the addons (so 5 boxes+one addon polish). /sigh.

 

I really want the golden box but I doubt it's going to happen. Mostly I just am making grabby  hands at Susie in the Oprah's choice box. ;A; Maybe someone here will get it and I can trade them for it or something.

I have to say, the Glitter & Glow x5 set is really worth it. If you do the math, you end up only paying $3.20 per polish -- that's better than half of drugstore brands even. It's also $16/box then and it is a pretty good gift to give (Also if you're lazy like me... it's a really good way to come up with something...)

I can't decide if I should upgrade..But when I look at all the polishes, there are a lot that I don't really like. Right now I have Classic with a Twist with Ivy, Carly, and Hilary as add ons...Why must this decision be so difficult??
