Julep July 2013

Recommended Posts

My big box was great, of course, maybe 10 polishes, but not like the others above.  Oh, the makeup brush does have a nice weight and feel though.  I'm excited for the one labeled suede finish.  Never had one of those before.  Anyway, congrats ladies on the awesome hauls!

No kidding! I was kinda meh about the last mystery box I purchased a couple months ago. This one is amazing! I have been a Maven since Jan '12 and have over 80 polishes not including these and I only got 5 dupes out of the 17 I received.

I got this same big box version, which is version 2.

 

 

Polishes are: Emanuelle, Nicolette, Amber, Raegan, Felicity and the new ones: Kyla and Monica

 

Pretty happy considering I would not have worn some of the other colors :)

I got my mystery box a day early! 400
Oh man I LOVE your variation! I actually would wear all of those colors! My box came with Nina (orange), Charlie (yellow), Bess (baby blue), Lucy (super dark brown?), and Ellie (mother of pearl.) Ellie is pretty much the only one I'd wear. Let me know if you want to trade for any of them!

I don't really have alot of Julep polishes. I skipped twice and only had one Intro box and June box that's it. I have Ellie, too. The colors if you click on the picture so you can read the labels up close: Monica, Ellie, Kyla, Charlie, Nina, Bess, and Lucy. There are two other color polishes that didn't work out for me are Lexie (Yellow mustard) and one I don't know the name off from my head. It's like army green color. BUT I may want to keep those so I could do nail art and mix up neutrals with brights. Thanks for offering and will do a future trade.

I received my day/night mystery box today. I finally lucked out! I usually get the smallest boxes. I got version 4!! Out of 17 polishes, 6 were dupes. Not bad - still 11 new to me colors (a couple that I have been really wanting). Plus, I kind of wanted the foot scrub and the brush looked interesting. Happy dance! yess.gif

Two coats of Joanna, one coat of Seche Vite, and a wear story: 400 The color is undoubtedly off since I took this in the shade, and it's not the best application, but the point is what this is after: two hours of building and taping cardboard boxes. I was *sure* that the tape that kept devouring my hands would destroy whatever the cardboard didn't, and all I see is some tip wear that may very well be related to the top coat. I'm shocked.

You hit the mother load!

 

I do like how Julep mixes things up both in regards to colors and amount/variety of items in the boxes.  Nice to see everyone happy with their mystery boxes this month.

My question is: This is the first time I have used the caviar beads. Would you put Seche Vite over it or would that spoil the effect? 

Went to the eye doctor yesterday after doing this Gold Dust manicure (I ended up putting Seche Vite over the caviar beads). First thing the lady at check-in said was, "PRETTY nails!" Really made me feel good after all the time and effort and money spent the past three months of taking care of my nails (after decades of NOT doing so)! Nothing like compliments to encourage you to keep up what you are doing right!!! Hope you all get a "Pretty Nails" compliment after your latest Julep manicure!

Oh, jessrose18, I'm sorry you got dupes since you only had 9 Juleps. The odds were in your favor that you wouldn't, but that seems to be part of the "mystery" of the Mystery Boxes. Enjoy what you did receive and don't give up!

sorry to post twice but i forgot to quote. I am totally having an issue with the nozzle sticking. I'm glad it's not just me.
Same here! It was fine for the first few uses and now it gets stuck. I love the product though. Bought another bottle as backup!

It does that to me every few uses as well, but I just take the top off, run it under hot running water, pop it back on, et voila! Good as new. This is pretty common with spray bottles.

    • So interested and following this one... I am an optometrist and see quite of few patients in my office with lash extensions...I know it is the current obsession, but I am not a fan....just curious to hear a little info on why people gravitiate to them. I worry about the risk of infections and obvious the fact the lashes break off and are unhealthy after the patient stops wearing them. We offer great lash serum options (Rodan+Fields and RevitaLash) in my office and to me they are a safer option and for most do give some really great results

    • Nice. Thanks for sharing this. Wearing makeup is common place in today's society, worn for anything from a day at work to a formal night out. Makeup may do magical things, but it doesn't have to be a mystery. Applying a basic, natural look doesn't require a lot of skill or tools. You can do lots of the blending with your fingertips, and choose to leave out certain products if they don't appeal to you. So have no fear: enjoy the process and your fresh, glowing face!
    • What is a good ,lightweight and affordable sunscreen? Any Suggestions...
    • There are so many recipes to make clear lip gloss at home. The easiest I say is using plain tocopherol T50 vitamin E oil in a roll on bottle. It was works wonders. Apart from glossy lips it heals dry chapped lips. A cheaper version of the gloss is castor oil. Castor oil is thick and glossy. A little of beeswax or/and shea butter too can be added. A recipe with castor oil, shea butter and castor oil. Castor oil 8 grams Shea butter 1 gram Beeswax 1 gram. I know it is quite difficult to make with such small measurements. Can multiply with 3 or 5 and you get 3 or 5 lip gloss roll on. Take all the three ingredients in a microwave save bowl, heat in short span of 5 seconds till everything is melted. Add flavour oil. (A lip safe flavour oil can be added for some fragrance and taste. Just a drop or two is more than enough for each roll on bottle.) Let it cool. Fill in roll on bottles or tubes or just any smallest container you have.
