Recommended Posts

LOL this isn't on me, this is on Julep--

You can reserve yours here: https://www.julep.com/maven/metamorphic/reserve/

 

You can also see the their swatches over some purple polish.

 

What do y'all think? I think I'm probably going to have to take the next box...even though I have waaay too many polishes. I hope they'll let us pick

You may have to copy and paste that link because the MUT Linkshare redirect is not working properly especially for those with ad blocking programs installed.

I have adblock plus installed and the link is working fine for me, but thanks for catching it

Someone posted these as RL swatches of the metamorphic TC along with one of the January colors (I think(

And I think the January colors. Eh. Not...super impressed tbh.

But I need to figure out what that "rose quartz" thing is. Geena is very very pretty (and I doubt it'd even look good on me...but envy)

 

And the paper swatches:

Geena is supposed to be January's birthstone polish. Apparently they are going back through and doing the alternative birthstones in 2015.

I like Geena and Tanith but they're really really sheer based on nail swatches I saw on facebook. The products for January are Glycolic Body Scrub and colored lip treatments. I regretted not upgrading last January (trying to save $), but this collection doesn't speak to me at all.

Lesson learned this year.  Wait until that time between Thanksgiving and Christmas when there are a ton of sales and buy the whole set for 25.

Hey, Geena! As in Geena Davis! As in she and I share a birthday! I might have to pick that one up just because she kicks about eight kinds of ass. I hate pink, though, so dunno,

Went and looked for alternates:

 

BIRTHDAY MONTH PRIMARY BIRTHSTONE ALTERNATE BIRTHSTONE

January Garnet Pink Quartz

February Amethyst Black Garnet

March Aquamarine Bloodstone or Red Jasper*

April Diamond White Topaz or Rock Crystal

May Emerald Chrysoprase

June Pearl Moonstone or Alexandrite

July Ruby Jade* or Carnelian

August Peridot Sardonyx September Sapphire Lapis Lazuli

October Opal (Pink) Tourmaline

November Topaz Citrine

December Turquoise Blue Topaz or Tanzanite

 

March - Bloodstone is actually traditional, but Aquamarine is modern

July - so interestingly, there is actually red Jade. I wonder if Julep will go with that.

 

I'm hoping they'll pick whatever is most different from the month they've already done then.

 

 

I just also wanted to know, knowing Julep, they'll do something to actually spite you. I never got the valentine's day box even though I wanted Aphrodite, and I've been looking for it forever ever since. Oh well. One less polish for me to hoard I guess ^^;;

Per usual I only like the add on colors, but I really want those transformer coats, so I might have to take a core classics box or something.  I kinda want some sort of confirmation that I would get the bonus transformer color though, since I didnt actually receive the email myself (just used the link posted).

They said that no confirmations would be sent out, the impression I got was that there'd be one in your box if you reserved using the email link. I can see this going south real fast if "while supplies last" means only a small amount available and a lot of people don't get one in their January boxes.

You could always use it as a base color for nail vinyls. Pink as the base layer then a dark color on top. That's what I usually do if I'm using pink polish.

I saw the "while supplies last" and I hope they planned accordingly because they look amazing.  I'm sure a lot of people were planning on skipping in January, myself included, especially after all the sales and codes recently.

Someone else pointed this hack, so I don't take credit:

 

If you have any jules, you can pick an item from the jule box section: http://www.julep.com/shop/jule-box.html

Add warm wishes to your cart: http://www.julep.com/shop/12-days-2014-day-9/warm-wishes-trio.html

Use KARMA

Check out, and everything is free.

 

Devon is only 400 jules right now -- so it's like the equivalent of getting a whole box and addon for just 400 Jules.

 

 

eta since I put this in the enablers section, if you don't have any jules, here are a few really good deal items.

 

These are all $10 for two polishes (so $10 for all five polishes with Karma):

http://www.julep.com/shop/12-days-2014-day-9/reindeer-games-duo.html

http://www.julep.com/shop/12-days-2014-day-9/stroke-of-midnight.html

http://www.julep.com/shop/12-days-2014-day-9/pop-the-bubbly-duo.html

http://www.julep.com/shop/12-days-2014-day-9/sugar-plum-duo.html

 

Or, add something to your cart (literally anything)

Click checkout, it will give you the option to select addons:

(the little lights are super tiny, but it might be a good deal for some)

Click check out, go back to the front page and click on your cart, and remove everything other than the three wishes trio and your addon, then check out.

 

These are the cheapie addons:

Weird. I click on anything in the Jule Box and it takes me to the profile quiz to join even though my account tells me my current Maven profile. I wonder if they've caught onto it.

 

Nevermind. You have to click on the item itself to see the point cost. Bad website design at work.

I don't know if this is the right place to post. If not, please let me know and I will delete it.

 

I am really eying the birthstone collection but I still can't pull the trigger at $50. Does anyone has a coupon code they can PM me if possible?

 

Thanks!!

I think THIRTYOFF for 30% off is the best you can do right now unless you have a gift card. They seem to have disabled all the unique codes.
