Julep: December 2012

Recommended Posts

It's a skip month for me.  I work in a place too conservative to rock glitter unfortunately (the edgiest thing I'm comfortable wearing there is grey/beige cremes lol), plus I splurged on the Pop Sugar luxury box anyway....

While it was tempting to get the full box, because glitter, and realizing that Julia is a near dupe to Zoya's Daul, and Barbara looks like a near dupe to Zoya's Alegra, and I already have plenty of red polish, I just stuck to the It Girl box and added Cindy, Colbie and Patti. I'm glad Colbie was one of the addons since that was the color I was the most excited about.

crap crap crap.

 

it is a bad thing when your boyfriend's card is attached to the julep account, and upgrading is just soooo easy..

I skipped a flight to and fro new york so I could get an ipad mini, i don't think he'll mind a a couple upgrades.

 

to nail wardrobe or not to nail wardrobe...

 

i've been wanting julep glitters since i signed up. they delivered.

I think i'll stick with it girl + hillary (my mom's name) 

 

they need a $30 glitter wardrobe upgrade. all the glitters.

I was just going to say this. Ivy looks close to a Zoya Song type, though it might be a little brighter, but I can't tell by their lighting. Cindy either looks like Logal or Ivanka...

Okay, I'm having issues.  How do I tell Julep to apply Jules to my December box but NOT to my add-ons?  Seems stupid to pay 750 Jules (2250 for 3) for $15 worth of stuff, I'd rather save them, use 2000 Jules for each month's $20 box, and pay the $15 cash for the add-ons.  Is there no way to do this???

Here's Julep's stance on the Maven's choice box this month...

 

We are not doing a Maven's choice this month since we thought each glitter was uniquely beautiful! Be sure to make your selections by November 24th!

 

As per usual, Julep is not responding about the Jules for addons but not for boxes problem and still replying to other things. :| Sigh

I think you can but the newest system doesn't show how on the selection page. It does state, "If you choose to apply Jules, we automatically deduct the amount available to cover any or all of your selections."

Here are some much better close ups of the polishes this month... at least you get to see the colour more, imo:

I was originally going to select AB with Julia and Patti, but after getting a closer look at Patti, meh. Now I just gotta decide which box to choose instead and put Patti as the addon...Maybe I'll do Cindy & Hilary with Bombshell. I like Hilary more in the close up.

No, no. You're a cat. LOL

 

Ok, mini-story time on that.... So the other night I went with the hubby to one of the local Walmarts. I typically don't shop at Walmart for a variety of reasons but primarily because the stores tend to be filthy. Well that Walmart went through a recent remodel so they expanded their craft department to compete against Hobby Lobby, Michaels and Joanns. I ended up in the beading and jewelery area and stopped in my tracks and said, "Ohhh! Shiny, shiny!" The hubby laughed at me, called me a cat and proceeded to drag me out of the aisle. So now I see shiny, shiny things that catch my attention and I don't refer to it as an addiction but rather just being a cat.

I probably shouldn't be getting this box anyway ;A; I haven't even opened any of the polishes from last month's box (I got the upgrade)...so behind on reviews sob. I'm in it for the cheap add-ons this time, I'm justifying.

 

I'm going to be at 100 polishes soon...

Barbara Cindy looks more of a lime green base where Ivanka has more of a blue undertone to it and Logan is more of a darker green. But they're all definitely similar.

 

I can get my color names straight, really.

Hmmm, I agree.. I'm not sure I love Patti after seeing it up close. THIS IS SO CONFLICTING! First world problems... but still, I <3 nail polish.

Oh my gosh...you may be right! Lol..This is going to be my last box, so I'm waffling back and forth... I'm such a glitter and sparkle fiend...so I'll have to at least narrow it down a little.

I decided on it girl and added petra and kathleen.  I was so excited to see the glitter collections, because I have been eyeing petra and vivien for awhile now!  I also couldn't pass up kathleen as an add on, because while I am normallya  brights girl, I am also a sucker for champagne nails.

I ended up at American Beauty and added Hilary, Vivien, and Lucy...I might take off Lucy and add the glitter and glow collection because I have no self control.

Okay, I lied.  Not about the no self control part, about what I was ordering.  Because I upgraded to the whole set and then used 2000 Jules on glitter and glow.  ALL THE SHINY THINGS WILL BE MINE!  Meow!
