(Spoilers) Julep June 2014

Recommended Posts

Am I the only one who doesn't care what season certain colors are 'appropriate' for? I just wear whatever I want whenever I want :)

 

Nope! I thumb my nose at being "season appropriate", whatever the hell that's supposed to mean. I like to live outside of the box, it's much roomier out here and I get claustrophobic in confined spaces, real or perceived.  ;)

The Julep iPhone app is out. Let's you make all your selections except Skip. Of course.

Looks like they listened and used different hand models. Or did a nicer job photo shopping where I can't tell they are fake :-p. Either way I'm pleased! And tempted to upgrade. So far I'm at upgrade +katerina, but I had made a plan last month to sit it out since I have so much polish and wanted to see how the changes rolled out. I potentially love the finishes, I hope they dry properly! That's something I didn't know could be a problem before April's box.

Polish Lover upgrade for me. Again. Julep is really in tune with my tastes this year! I have upgraded every month with the exception of March which I skipped altogether.

super annoyed - i switched to My Maven (the wording made it sound like to be I could view what was/how it'd look) thinking I'd be able to go back....not the case.  I know once you opt in, you can't opt out - but I didn't realize I was opting-in!  whatever....even with customization I still can't get the box I want without add-ons.  SKIP

I actually got a box with an add on!  That way I will have over 2000 jules, save it for a free box and then close my account.  I do love these colors

FYI you won't get jules for the addon. You might already know that, but a lot of people don't and end up disappointed so I just wanted to let you know.

 

 

Yeah, I like a bunch of these colors but 1) not sure they'd look good on me 2) worried about how opaque they are in real life and 3) photoshopped to hell and back. bleh. Waiting for a sale XD

What's the box that you want/wish you could get?

I went with It Girl plus Harlow and was able to cash in all but 50 of my Jules.  I still haven't heard back from CS about my VERY late and incorrect May box, so this is the end of me and Julep.

Anyone know if you get more jules for the my maven customisation box?

I highly doubt it.  They would have made a big deal about it as an incentive to get people to switch if that were the case.

Say, has anyone ever had an issue with missing Jules? I could swear I had 1700 Jules last month, and was looking forward to a free box this month. When I signed in to look at this month's boxes, I had 1500 Jules. Womp womp. Unfortunately, I have no way to prove that my Jules are missing.

 

I also could have sworn that last month was a triple points month, but when I looked at my account, they only gave me double points. Of course, I didn't keep the email that said it would be triple points for May. Maybe I'm going insane?

I skipped this month. I actually really like most of the colors they are just too similar to what I already have. I hope Julep keeps releasing fun finishes! 

 

Also...there used to be a tiny button hidden somewhere that showed you zoomed in swatches? Is that still there somewhere or is it gone? I think it was on the "Maven Landing Page" but I've looked there and the blog and can't find it.  I loved looking through the gallery of swatches they had instead of having to click on every picture separately.

Nothing is really grabbing me and I'm on polish overload, so I'm skipping this month.  I bought these 6 polishes last month for $17.98 with the $10 off $20 code, so they will have to tide me over.

Last month was double points.

I feel like a majority of the appeal of Julep is that there's just "new" stuff every month. A lot of the collections are repeats of colors they have / are similar or can be easily duped by other companies. But alas, we all fall for the newness factor...........

You can see all of your Jules history if you want to check the math.

THANK YOU. For a while I thought I was the only crazy 1 who didn't go by seasons!

 

 

I upgraded to the My Maven 3-Month prepaid plan once I was assured that my monthly skip privileges would not change. (I subscribed to Julep last summer.) For my box, I chose Sera, Ariana, and Phia-the three polishes I liked. I was surprised to see Rock Star Hand Cream and the Julep nail polish remover pump as potential swap options. However, I just wanted polishes this month, though!

 

Let us know how that goes! I'm curious about how the 3 month plan will fare down the road.

My best advice is to tell CS about it, though I understand why nobody would want to. Especially after they sent a certain someone's May box 3 weeks late & have yet to send out other people's. (Sorry, still bitter about that.)

I can assure you however that last month was doubled Jules for taking a box, not tripled.

Since I'm a sucker for All The Purple Things and kinda curious about the base coat, I went with Bombshell, even though I just want Jennine, because the Stardusts are something Julep seems to do right. So I added Jennine, more Plie brushes and the cleanup tool, which if it bombs as a nail tool, will be perfect as a model making tool.

 

This cleans out my current round of points and I can move to skip mode for a while as I'm annoyed they raised the prices + points on the polish addons.

I switched to customization as well. Taking it girl, but swapping phia for bergen. And the o2 duo as addon. Using jules for the box. Now, I only wonder if they will still take the $60 this month or wait till I actually pay for a box. I'm guessing it'll be right away ...

 

Really dont like all the purples ... but love bergen (hope it's more grey than blue) and savoy is for once a gold I like. And I love the stardust finish on any color.

GIRLS, I'm REALLY EXCITED for this month! More than I should be really. Thank God I'm a broke as hell college student because if I had it my way, I'd flat out upgrade. I'll stick with my usual It Girl profile. I could pass on the topcoat add ons, both Oxygen & Katerina. I have so many special topcoats that I don't get around to using as much as I want to anyway, & I have a ridge filler & nail strengthener combo that I can't sacrifice right now.

The only dupe I would have if I did upgrade would be Harlow [Ciate Oil Slick]. But honestly that weird duochrome color is something every polish brand should have, much like how every polish brand has a color like Blakely.

Oh & yay for using more than 1 hand model this time!

Okay, thanks for confirming double points, everyone... not sure why I thought it was triple, because that definitely seemed high. I checked the math in my account, it looks good, but I could still swear I had more Jules than that. Either my total last month was glitchy or I'm going crazy... hopefully the former!

People who switched to My Maven: Exactly what color options do you have, if you want to switch polishes? Is it only the polishes from this month? Is Katarina included?

Share this post

It's only the current polishes & product and a bunch of lip glosses. Also hand cream, cuticle oil, nail polish remover, buffer blocks. Katarina is not included .. nor any of the add-on polishes or the O2 top coat. That's what I had been hoping for .. that I could just take 1 polish plus the base & top coat. Not possible.

 

So just current polishes, products and a limited selection of older products.

 

(not sure what the options are if you start out with Core Classic as I'm not given either of those products as swap in option even if I start with just 1 nail polish). Though they told me that Core Classic is given double Jules ...

    • Honestly as of recent, I’m loving Orea skin care, there products are natural and organic, cruelty free which is a must for me and they feel great and are so effective on my skin 
    • So I actually just received a package from this new skin care company called “Orea skin care ” and honestly my skin is glowing, there cleanser is soft and gentle and really tightens my pores, I’m 30 and compared to other cleansers I’ve used over the years this is one I would high recommend 
    • I don't think online games comes into sports activity. You need to correct your answer Mynni. However, I answer this question then for sure, I am a big fan of racket games. I was best at squash and tennis in school days. I also recently started playing squash again with my husband in doubles format after getting a good squash racket and reading the racquets reviews from here. I think females must play this kind of sports to improve their physical fitness. 
    • I just realized that it's been 5 years since I was sick. All those years I was only thinking of hospitals, doctors, pills and suffocating depression and no entertainment. Now that I am finally over it all, I am sitting at home not knowing where to push myself into. I used to love playing in Vegas casinos and actually I wouldn't mind if anybody from this forum keeps me a company once again. We could wear our best dresses, have a perfect make up (I know a cool celebrity make up artist!), book our flights and go. I tried to visit a few gambling threads here but they are so godlessly old! Dated 2007 or so. Back then people perhaps were playing not in casinos but with wooden sticks. Now the world so much changed and I feel so damn falling behind it. So what do you say? Anybody cares to visit a casino with me? We can visit a Titanic museum too if you wish. Or come to my house let's play backgammon at least. Let's get wasted! Let's feel the life!
