The Crazy Suburban Mom: Julep Maven Giveaway and get your first box for $5

Julep Maven Giveaway and get your first box for $5


I recently tried two Julep Maven  Polishes.   They call it Nail Vernis which works for me because seriously -- You can't describe it's wonderfulness with only one language.  They are, wow! Great!  And in French, Julep Maven est fabuleux!

Julep Maven boxes  arrive monthly as a subscription ( $19.99) but if you want to try it out you can get the first box of Nailicious Love for only $5 using the code  CRAZYSUBURBANMOM at checkout. 


In person Whitney's  a schoochy bit warmer (but just a schoochy bit), she rides the neutral fence like a champ.  Whitney's described as  "mushroom grey-beige," and I think she's a year-round choice and appropriate for any occasion.  The little black dress of nail color as it were.

I have similar colors to Whitney and trying to do a quick one coat with any of them would be a streak-fest.


This is ONE magical coat.


I can't think of another cream with coverage like that.



Now, say "Hi!" to Nicole...

Hi! Nicole, you coppery-red darling, you!

julep


Can you see the depth of the shimmering shebang that is Nicole?   I love this color (in fact, I have it on again).   I'm a total sucker for Ruby-Red Slipper nail colors because they remind me of an endorphin-inducing pair of  Mary Jane's my mother wouldn't buy me when I was eight.    


 


Childhood trauma and polish color aside, the Julep Maven formula is impressive.  I'm very hard on my nails (I use them as tools) and my polish can look beastly before it's dry.  

I wore Nicole for five days before I took these pictures.  I did have a chip.

nic


One. Single. Small.... 


...hardly noticeable chip after almost a week is, well, crazy talk!  And I'm sure I tried to take a screw out of a wall or something with that nail...  There are times in  like a day and a half I have to redo everything; here I was almost a week-in wearing a deep, saturated  red and it still looked good. 

You really should try this polish....   It goes on like a dream and you have a bit of play time; the polish takes to reworking.   I really liked that.  Seems with many polishes I get one shot with the brush and that's it.  


  The consistency is great and the drying time was fine.  I like the square bottles, I know some people don't but they look beautiful and the shape makes storing them SO much easier.  


Score:  ♥ ♥ ♥  ♥ out of five hearts

Oh, besides the polish...





Another thing that came in my "Classic with a Twist" box was the Facial for Hands Glycolic Scrub .  It's the middle of winter and my hands feel baby-butt soft and did after one use, which is why me and my scrub are going steady.  I love instant gratification. 

 In the monthly boxes you get over $40 worth of Nailicious Love in the form of trendsetting polish colors and cutting-edge treatment products.

 Julep takes pride in the fact that they offer the most exciting runway colors and the most effective (For real, wow!)  and innovative hand, nail and foot care products. Unlike many traditional brands, all of our polishes are free of DBP, toluene, formaldehyde and formaldehyde resin- but beautiful and long lasting nonetheless. 

Julep Maven is “Powered By Girlfriends“ meaning they value and support all the girlfriends in their lives and they are proud to donate $1 from every Julep Nail Vernis sale to organizations that empower women.

For the giveaway, one reader will win a Julep Maven box to love for ever and ever.  


Open to US and Canada.  

There are TWO Mandatory entries : comment here and like Julep on Facebook.

Let me know if you follow Julep Maven on Twitter, that will be another entry.

....And if you'd like you can comment once a day.


 Please include your email address in your comment so I can find you and maybe tell me your favorite Julep Maven Color, too... Or pass along your best nail tip.   Or how about what you do for dry winter feet?  


I'm always working on those awful  feety things.


Giveaway will end January 12, 2012 at 9:00 pm eastern time.





 And don't forget, if you want to try your first box of Nailicious Love for only $5  use the coupon code CRAZYSUBURBANMOM at checkout.

liked them and OMG I NEED Nicole! I was thinking 'that looks just like ruby slippers' when you typed it. I haven't been able to find my slippers in six months, I think we talked about that before. I am so glad to know there is a substitute because I have been waiting far too long between paintings so as not to waste my last bottle.

Love Julep polishes! <3 They are fabulous! I'd definitely recommend trying Sienna. I think the fact that it is gold turns people away but it's super subtle. My absolute favorite! And glycolic hand scrub is a must have now. ^_^ I like Julep on facebook and follow them on twitter [secretdae007]

Thank you!

i am a julep maven as well and have been a wee bit less satisfied. a few colors peeled off my nails, even with a base and top coat, but others stayed on like champs. i have about 6 colors, the mask, quick dry top coat and my most favorite product, a small quilted black make up bag. i was shocked when it arrived! over all its a awesome subscription and well worth the price! Thanks mavens!

In the winter, after a shower, you should generously apply lotion to your feet, then put on socks. It'll lock in the moisture all day!

Love Julep! I recently got Julep's Stella & when I first saw her, I wrinkled up my nose, but on my nails, she was dreamy! Never would have chosen that color on my own. :)

Wow... I need the "shimmering shebang that is Nicole!" Always on the hunt for the perfect vixen red that doesn't look hookerish, but just sort of callgirl-ish, heehee. Awesome! And they are close to me. Didn't know they were in Seattle!
