Julep: August 2013 (Spoilers)

I finally just bought Butter London Horsepower which is supposed to be amazing.

My nails got all peely too! I am wondering did the Oxygen Nail Treatment do it or was it something else. On my right hand my ring finger's nail is painfully short and every time it grows a tiny bit it, it peels until it is short again. It started after using it a few months ago. I just started painting my nails again last week because I was going to see people.

Thanks.  I think this decided it for me.  I wear polish most of the time so, I won't be keeping this.

So I got Version 1 of the Golden Mystery Box and am very happy with it. It had the oxygen nail treatment, SPF hand cream, and taffy. I got some pretty little coral and gold heart stud earrings, which I just gave to my 10 year old daughter. They are very pretty and she is over the moon about them. The nail polishes are Jane (pretty glitter), Nan, Anne, and Maria (pretty frost/shimmer) Over all great box and worth the $21 to me. Cannot wait to see everyone elses. :)

I got version 3 of the golden mystery box, hand cream, oxygen treatment, taffy, hair bands in silver, black & brown, and Drew, Layne, Sheryl, and Bunny. Overall I'm pretty happy with it, and I don't think I got any dupes, but I'm too tired to check!! LOL...

@rachel -- hope you're feeling better. I had an awful stomach bug over 4th of July weekend but it seemed to last just about 48 hours, then I woke up and was totally fine. Hope some parental TLC does the trick

Mine was delivered today, and I got version 2.  I love it!  Fina and Alfre are gorgeous in person.  I am not a fan of the oxygen treatment (if I can see my nails I will pick at them, clear and sheer coverages just can't save me from myself lol) but I do love that hand cream and I ran out of it ages ago.  I ordered Blakely at the same time as the mystery box, and I can't decide now which color to choose first biggrin.gif

I received my August Maven Monthly Box a few days ago.  I can't complain.

 

Package Value Breakdown:
(As of this post all of the individual polishes currently retail for $14.00 or $11.20 if you are a Julep Maven Member)

(3) Individual Polishes:  $42.00 / 33.60
Flower Seed Packet: $1.00 (guesstimate)
Champagne Trio (set of 3 polishes):  Normally $42.00, Currently on sale for $20.00
Doublestep Foot Stick: $22.00 / $17.60

Grand Total Retail Value = $107.00 ($85.00 if you factor in the current sale prices)
Maven Subscriber Price (if purchased separately) = $72.20

What I actually Paid
August Box $19.99
Bea Add-On $4.99
Trio Add-On $14.99
Total = $39.97

Overall, I feel like this box is a great value for the money spent.  Also, I like all of the colors.  Especially the glitter polish, "Clio" included in the trio.

For some reason, I joined the Julep subscription group, but forgot to subscribe to the monthly threads for actual updates!  I skipped the August box - there weren't any sets I was terribly excited for.  But then I saw the secret store and Golden Box updates that y'all posted about a few days ago and I have to say I'm truly sorry to have missed this thread for that!

 

I tried using the Julep30 promo code for the nail sets, but it's no longer active.  Beautybio only works for one regularly priced nail color.  I was foaming at the mouth for three of their secret store sets, but alas I decided to not buy any polish until I get my Bondi box.  So August, I will live vicariously through you!!!!

 

Enjoy ladies - and keep posting those photos! :-)

Awww, Jessica, that stinks! I'm think I am going to go back to what I said before the Golden Mystery Box and just order if there are guaranteed new colors ... so far it's been my experience with them, that Julep is just unloading extra inventory.

Sorry you didn't get the polishes you wanted.  maybe you could get good use out of the hand cream and oxygen nail treatment.  I've been hearing mixed reviews on the nail treatment today.

Swatched all my new colors tonight and I'm even more excited for this box. Maria is my favorite, it is GORGEOUS. They're all great colors though, I don't have a red like Nan and I've been wanting Jane forever. Anne is such a fun purple, my oldest has already decided she wants it on her toes tomorrow ;-)

I used to, but since my ridges started getting a bit better I switched to just a regular base coat and began just lightly buffing my nails on top smile.gif

my mail gets delivered to my school mailbox so i won't get the mystery box for at least a day or two when i can go and pick it up.

Oh no! I'm so sorry to hear that! I hope you'll get better soon hug.gif

  • Hand Cream
  • Oxygen Treatment
  • Hair Ties (in taupe, lime green, and black glitter)
  • Polish in Drew (hot pink!)
  • Polish in Sheryl (a yellow gold with shimmer)
  • Polish in Layne (a pale, pale pink)
  • Polish in Bunny (white with gold sparkle, I think?)

 

I'm not too crazy about Bunny, but I love the rest of them! I even like the hair tie colors I got. I'm happy with what I got, since I paid $20.99 with a coupon. I really, really like Drew and Sheryl.

I received essentially the same box as well! Except the Hair Ties are in the colors bright orange, brown and black. I had to go through my Julep stash because I could have sworn that I already had Drew and Sheryl, but it appears that I do not! (Just some that look similar...which OBVIOUSLY means that I must keep these, am I right? AM I RIGHT? LOL)

 

Bunny is the only one that I already have, but no biggie, it's my cousin's 20th birthday soon and I'm putting together a little goody basket for her and I think Bunny will be an excellent addition! smilehappyyes.gif

I've seen other people post similar experiences in Facebook, so it's kind of odd. Mine happened to 2 fingers on my right hand and its still like that a few months later. I just keep painting over it. My nails are super hard so it's not flimsy or anything, but it's peeled so far down that I would have to chop my nails down to a stump, which I refuse to do lol.

Here is Marjorie! These are the types of finishes I love- subtle shimmer, applies like a dream! I had to do 3 coats, so I might put a more opaque orange underneath next time. This is like an orange version of Alice & Nadia. 400

Has anybody tried the Oxygen Nail Treatment? I am hesitant to try it as there is a ton of bad reviews out there saying it peels yours nails and can even cause sore nails. Don't want to waste it, but don't want to ruin my nails either. :/

    • 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.
    • You should also heat your eyelash curler with a hair dryer before curling. Helps them stay curled for longer. Just make sure the eyelash curler isn’t too hot before using it.
