This year has certainly flown by in another 12 days we get to pick our maven boxes for January 2014. What is every one looking forward to?

I feel like I just signed up for Julep yesterday but that was back in August. 

I'm not good at keeping my polish seasonal/on-trend, so as far as what I feel like in January, I don't know. But I do know I want more blues! And maybe purples. I have WAY too many pinks/reds and plenty of glitters... but my blue spectrum is falling short!

I love the color blue and have a lot of blue nail polish.  But I will always get more!  I just need new & different colors, I feel like I'm at the point where I get a new color only to find that I already have one very similar.  

I also feel like I don't need any pink/red and have enough glitters right now.  

Julep, bring in the new year with some new & exciting textures and colors.

ETA:  I also hope they keep doing the nail polish only and classics upgrades like last month.  Those options are great!

I want a New Years theme with glittery polishes in different shades and some new metallic! Perhaps golds, reds, champagnes, blue shimmers, etc.  I always want more  purple nail polish.

Another vote for more foils/metallics over here! A nice icy blue would be amazing. I'm really hoping that there's an all-shimmery-and-cool It Girl box with a sparkly add-on or two. I have enough points for a free box plus one or two add-ons, and I'm a January baby, so I'm looking at it as a birthday present!

I'm hoping for some fun textures. I also would like something like The topcoats that change the look of your polish.I'm thinking of the ones in Sephora the new X line.

I want some really unique polishes. I've been a maven for a year and a half, so things are starting to get repetitive. I have a pretty large collection of nail polish (~100 bottles between all the brands) and so I need something special to make me purchase. Something in the same realm as Jovelle (Joyelle? I can't remember the name) from last month's Boho Glam box.

I still want a champagne colored shimmery polish and a holographic sand finish (if that's possible?).  A collection like Max in all different colors would be cool.  Would love to see them do a bath/body/hand care type product rather than more makeup.

 I agree with all of this! I'm not a huge fan of their makeup (except for the kajal stick -- I use that almost every day), but I've always been impressed with their skin care products. I'd love a champagne polish, but since they released one in that trio set recently, I'm not sure they'd recycle that fast. For the next set, I'd like to see

the red - a cherry shimmer

the blue - an icy textured glitter, like OPI's Tiffany Case

the yellow - not at all, lol! Okay, how about a pale gold holo.

the green - dark evergreen cream

the nude - a pale pink sheer

the purple - plum/lavender glitter topper in a clear base

the unusual color - I really loved Ciara from October, so a coordinated constrasting base and glitter like that, although I can't think of any good combos myself.

I skipped December because I felt like I had a lot of those shades already and I didn't want the makeup, so I'd love to see the beauty gift go back to skin care or offer something different, like an eye makeup remover or tools. But I think from the survey questions, we're likely to get blush/bronzer next.

I'm still on the hunt for a nice dark (but not too dark) forest green. Also hoping they get away from makeup and go back to skin/body care (hello cleansing oil anyone?). 2014 is full of possibilities! :D /emoticons/biggrin@2x.png 2x" width="20" height="20" />

Diane is a nice dark green.

A holo sand is totally possible! Essence has one. I think they actually have a few in Europe, but there's only one released so far in the US, and it may be available only in Fred Meyer, a Pacific Northwest-only chain. It's a black, and it's gorgeous. I may or may not have sent one to my nails Secret Santee.

A couple of people in a Julep group I'm in on Facebook posted a photo of the January colors and gave the theme of the collection.

nice!   apparently The bottom left three are going to be minis sold with a mini freedom top coat, all four together as an add on.  Which makes sense to me!  Other than those, they go together really well - I may actually get this box!
