So I realize I might be late to this party but I don’t care. I recently discovered Julep after seeing there polishes floating around pinterest and some other blogs I follow. For some reason I’ve been really into my nails lately. I am typically a disgusting nail biter but when they are painted I don’t touch them. When I took the style profile quiz I was labeled as “classic with a twist” which agreed with however the colors in that particular starter box didn’t really tickle my fancy so I opted for “the it girl” which came with 3 polishes.
I like any other
fifteen year old girl grown woman, immediately opened the box and painted my nails (thankfully at least Presley was still napping and Carter let me paint them as he watched). I opted for Simone which to me looked more pinky but according to Julep it’s a “soft pastel lilac opalescent shimmer”. Was a little disappointed that once I put on my top coat the shimmer wasn’t really noticeable but it’s still a pretty color.
A few things:
- One thing that I wasn’t expecting was how small the polishes are. I’m used to Essie which is 15ml and Julep is 8ml. It’s still a good amount of polish but not the size i’m used too.
- Like most monthly subscription services if you don’t “opt out” or “skip a month” your card will be charged! Be sure to watch your email!
- Julep focuses on nail polish and a few other beauty products, this isn’t the site for you if don’t like nails (DUH!)
