Hello polished people! Today I’d like to share with you the contents of my June Julep Maven Box. This month I selected tons of shimmer along with several add-ons and was pleasantly surprised by two fantastic gifts from Julep. You won’t want to miss this!
For those of you unfamiliar with Julep, they offer access to their latest nail polish and beauty products via a monthly subscription box, the Maven Program, which recently changed and now offers the following options:
- the My Maven Box for $24.99 per month (contains $40 or more worth of product and is fully customizable)
- the Maven Luxe Box for $39.99 per month (contains $60 or more worth of product and is fully customizable)
Mavens that previously paid $19.99/month will continue to do so as long as they select one of the 5 pre-determined Style Profiles for their monthly Maven Box. Should they wish to select the customizable box option, however, they will need to upgrade to the $24.99/month rate. That said, if you are willing to prepay for 3 months, you can stay at the $19.99/month rate while also having the option to fully customize your box.
The June 2014 Maven offering is called the Three Wishes Collection and features nine new nail polish colors along with Oxygen Smoothing Base Coat and Oxygen Nail Treatment. I opted for the Customizable Box along with some add-ons this month, which included the following:
Natalia ($11.20 for Mavens / $14.00 full retail) is described as a refined copper metallic and is part of Julep’s Boho Glam Style Profile. This polish reminds me of a shiny new penny and is absolutely dazzling!
Jennine ($11.20 / $14.00) is described as a full-coverage borealis blue stardust (matte glitter) and is part of Julep’s It Girl Style Profile. I’m a huge fan of the Julep Stardust polishes and can’t wait to use this one in some upcoming twilight nail art ~ stay tuned!
Harlow ($11.20 / $14.00) is described as a golden dragonfly iridescent chrome and is part of Julep’s Boho Glam Style Profile. This polish has a unique slight duochrome effect that transitions from antique gold to a soft bluish green. One of a kind!
I should note that when I opened my Maven Box this month, I noticed that Harlow was missing and that two polishes I hadn’t selected (Marjorie and Veronica) were included instead. I immediately contacted Julep Customer Service via email and soon discovered that Marjorie and Veronica were gifts from Julep for opting for the maximum number of add-ons this month (3). Such a pleasant surprise! And as always the Julep Customer Service team was responsive to my complaint: they immediately shipped Harlow out to me and I received it within 5 business days. Thanks Julep!
Marjorie ($11.20 / $14.00) is described as a citrus orange frost and is part of Julep’s It Girl Style Profile. This is a great, vibrant orange polish for summer that literally glows in the bottle! Yummy!
Veronica ($11.20 / $14.00) is described as a modern mauve crème and is part of Julep’s Classic with a Twist Style Profile. This is a pretty rose-petal pink polish.
The Julep Color Fan ($6.40 / $8.00): includes “twenty-two nail spoons in a convenient fan to swatch your collection.” I opted to add 3 of these bad boys to my Maven Box this month. Since I don’t own any swatch wheels and my polish collection has seriously multiplied over the last year, I’m really looking forward to making color wheels with my favorite polishes.

In summary, my June Julep Maven Box contained items with a total value of $75.20 (Maven pricing) or $94 (regular retail). I paid $28.98 for the box, so I received a $46.22 discount by being a Maven.
