Midnight Blues For Them Winter Blues | Julep Maven Welcome Box

"Michelle" // Julep

Hello everyone! Seems like winter's still in full swing, so I thought it would be appropriate to sport something blue to match my winter blues.  Just kidding, I'm not blue; I actually love the colder months where I can layer up!  Anyway, recently I have seen quite a bit of advertising for the free Julep Maven boxes, so I caved and signed myself up. When you get to the website, you're instructed to take a quiz regarding what kind of style you're into and that determines what you'll get in your Welcome Box, as well as your monthly boxes if you choose to stick with the subscription.  I ended up with "Boho Glam,"
which I was extremely satisfied with because Boho Glam is exactly how I would describe my style!  In my Boho Glam Welcome Box, I received two full size nail polishes and a full size Julep Mighty Nail & Cuticle Serum, and I only had to pay shipping!

To be quite honest, I only signed up because I wanted the free products (I'm sure many people do that!), but after using the products and reading about the company, I feel like this is a beauty subscription that I will stick to for a couple months.  Julep is a company run by women and they're all for empowering women, which is something that I really admire about them.  Their nail polishes are "4-free," meaning they only contain ingredients that are safe to use with people of all ages.  Along with that, their polish formula is one of the best that I've encountered! It applies smoothly with no streaks, it's not goopy and thick, and it dries quickly (my favorite part!).  I'd have to say it beats the Deborah Lippmann and Chanel polishes that I have.

I hope you all found this post helpful! Stay warm wherever you are! :)
