Julep Giveaway!

Hey ladies! I was so excited when I was contacted to do a review and giveaway for Julep! I wasn’t familiar with the brand, so I did a little bit of research and was thrilled to find out about their products. I’m a nail polish JUNKY and they have a great selection of polish colors, hand and nail treatments and fun extras. Check out my thoughts and find out how to enter to win your own giftbox!

Similar to Birchbox, members of Julep Maven can sign up for a monthly delivery of customized nail and beauty treats. It’s a surprise each month and for just $19.99 (for over $40 worth of products), it’s quite the deal!

Julep sent me a box to review for you guys and here’s what I received:

Here’s what I thought: I’m a self-admitted nail polish snob okay? I am picky about color, consistency, and longevity of all nail polish I wear. I was SO impressed with Julep’s quality! The nail polish was thick, covered well, looked great and lasted at least 4 solid days before chipping. I swear to you it lasted through multiple dish washes, wrapping presents (and peeling away pesky price tags that ALWAYS ruin nails), and tons of other things. This stuff has serious staying power. I’m currently wearing Whitney on my nails and Nicole on my toes, which were perfect for the peep toe pumps I wore to a holiday party this past weekend! Also love the hand scrub – it’s supposed to make your hands look younger, I don’t really care about that now, but it does make them really smooth!
Overall, I loved the product and the thought of receiving a surprise box every month.  Julep also cares about their products as well as giving back through their organization. They told me, “Unlike many traditional brands, all of our polishes are free of DBP, toluene, formaldehyde and formaldehyde resin- but beautiful and long lasting nonetheless. We are also “Powered By Girlfriends“ meaning we value and support all the girlfriends in our lives. In fact, we are proud to donate $1 from every Julep Nail Vernis sale to organizations that empower women!” Awesome, awesome, awesome.
Here’s how you can win our very own Julep Maven gift box:
