Julep Maven Review – May 2014

Hi guys!!

I just got my Julep Maven box for May, and I’m super excited about it!!

What exactly is Julep Maven?!

It is a monthly subscription service that provides you with nail polish and various beauty products!  It’s only $19.99 a month and comes with free shipping! You can get your first box for free by following this link! There are tons of perks to being a Julep Maven!  Check out all the perks here! 

I’ve been a Maven for several months now and I absolutely LOVE it!!

Let’s get to my box!

ImageThis month’s box was a little bigger than usual to accommodate the products inside.

ImageThe first thing I saw when I opened my box was a thank you note from Jane, the Julep founder.

Several months ago, Mavens were asked to help crowdfund Julep’s Plié Wand, so Jane sent along a little note and a special polish to thank the Mavens that participated!

Now let’s get to the good stuff!!


As usual, I got the Classic with a Twist box!

My box came with:

  • Three polishes (Two Classic with a Twist and a bonus It Girl)
  • Plié Wand
  • Plié Wand Precision Brush
  • An extra Plié Wand compatible polish cap
  • Promo code for 2 for 1 polish

ImageThis month’s theme is Fresh Twist!  All of the polish colors are refreshing and fun!


Maddy – Classic with a Twist – Raspberry sorbet shimmer

Ramona – Classic with a Twist – Muted lavender rose crème

Both of these polishes are Breathable nail colors.

Here’s a description of what Breathable polish is:

Yumi – It Girl – Pink, silver, and holographic glitter.

I’m really into glitter polishes right now, so this polish is perfect!

I’m very excited about this product!  I’m not terrible at painting my own nails, but every little bit helps!

I tried out the wand last night, and it was okay.  It was a lot easier to hold in my right hand (probably because I’m right handed huh?) than my left.  I’m sure it will get much easier after I use it a few times!

I also purchased two add-ons this month.  I got an email saying that those were going to ship separately.  I’ll post a review of those products as soon as I get them in the mail!

All in all, I’m very pleased with this month’s box!

Did you get the May Maven box? What do you think of the Plié Wand?
