(Spoilers) Julep June 2014

Recommended Posts

As of right now, I'm going with the Ultimate Upgrade.  I may change my mind because I'm less than enthused about Natalia, Harlow, Bergen, and Savoy.  I just can't decide right now.  I'll have to think some more about it.

Funny those are the colors I like the most!   I have no idea yet what I am doing this month...thank goodness I have 3 more days to decide!

again, pretty new.  If I did the ultimate upgrade, can I use jewels?  if so, how many would that be?  I know if I did the items as add-ons, I could use jewels.  just trying to figure out the best deal (using jewels as well). Thanks everyone!

I am loving the collection this month! Nice to see that Julep did indeed give us something different, like we were all hoping for.  I of course, am having my usual dilemma where I like a good majority of the polishes but like 3 or 4 are stopping me from doing the upgrade.  Also the fact that I just need to stop upgrading b/c my Julep collection is getting out of hand! 

 

Right now, I'm sticking with the Bombshell box because PURPLE.....although Sera isn't looking super purple to me, does it look like that to others?

The Bombshell box (my default) was PERFECT this month, but I have literally ZERO self control with Julep and got the Polish Lovers Upgrade.

Interesting....   I opt-in to My Haven 3-mths prepaid b/c I wanted Bergen and Harlow!  Those were the only 2 polishes I liked... everything else was just too shiny and in your face for my taste...  

Nice that everyone has different taste so we all get what we like!

FYI, for anyone skipping, my skip confirmation email took about 4 hours to go through.  I saw a few other people posting about a delay also.

I think this is true with regular confirmations too. I haven't received my confirmation email yet and it's been a couple hours.

 

Edit... speak of the devil - it just showed up. So there's definitely an email delay going on on their part.

 .. 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.

 

That was my hope as well.

 

Once I realized I was going to be forking over another $9.99 to get the top coat - because they purposely paired the Base coat with the Oxygen treatment plus MORE buffers rather than Top and Base together in one option - I clicked "Skip" and went right over and upgraded my Rainbow Honey Mystery Bag from Mini to Large for June.  RH may not be customizable, but the value is infinitely more.  I need another Oxygen Nail Treatment and drawer full of buffers about as much as I need 'the look' from my husband for another $30+ box.   ;)

Question!  What is color treat nail polish?  is it all julep polishes or just certain formulas?

Per the product descriptions for the base coat and top coat:- http://www.julep.com/blog/meet-june-maven-collection/

To maximize the benefits of Oxygen Technology, only use with Color Treat nail polish and Oxygen Performance Top Coat.

I'm torn this month...not sure I like anything enough to not just cancel.  But I do have enough Jules to do a free add-on, which is a plus.  Will have to think about this!

I was all set to cancel this morning, but I didn't want my Jules to go to waste, so I've been thing about it.

I'm going ahead and getting Boho Glam and adding the Top coat and using my Jules to pay for the add on.

Anyone have any guesses on what the birthstone color for June might be? I'm guessing just pearl....but it would be soooo cool if the could do moonstone! !

I just went to check Jules / product values and noticed the Modern Beauty Box is marked "out of stock".  I can see that for add-ons.  But for boxes on day one?  I'm sure more will go back in stock eventually but they seem to do their best in making it the absolute most difficult for everyone - time, product choices / combinations, etc.

 

I'm grumpy.  I think my honeymoon phase with them is over.  And I'm still glad I skipped...

To me Sera looks like the exact shade as Cameron but without the stardust glitter stuff.

This is what I was worried about with the delayed emails.  If anyone is changing their selections, I would screencap it just to be safe.  I don't know what happens if your selection goes out of stock before you get your confirmation email but it just seems like a recipe for disaster, especially with the window closing on a holiday weekend.

 

Can anyone with customization tell me what other options it gives you with the Core Classics box? Can you sub out the products for different ones?

If people don't know… maybe I will call. I will let you all know what they say.

The Ultimate Upgrade is 7500 Jules.  The Polish Lovers Upgrade is 5000 Jules.  You choose your box as usual, them in add-on scroll all the way to the end to find the Polish and Ultimate upgrades.

 

Hope that helps!

This whole collection is right up my alley. I do love some chromes. Polish lover's upgrade. If I get them in my hand and they don't live up to expectations. I can use them for either of the Summer Secret Santa's.

    • 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!
    • I would discourage you from leaving the car in the street. People may steal side mirrors or puncture the tires just out of fun these days.
    • As compared to many other students, your essay is rather good. I like it.
    • I agree about the hygiene idea of tester bottles in the supermarkets, very good point! Actually all these designed bottle samples have the possibility of opening them and poking fingers into cosmetics. I see the matter is with the design itself. Why don't you try new 3D modelling software https://subscribe.cheapoemsoft.com/autodesk/autodesk-autocad-2018/ and design the bottles that are just right? My firm designs plastic screws for packaging, so I guess you can try your bottles too.
