Julep Collection

Julep is one of my favorite brands of nail polish. What I love most is that they are constantly on trend with fresh color options every month!

Clearly, I've got an unhealthy amount of nail polish considering this is only the Julep portion of my collection. For my fellow nail polish-aholics, Julep is a fabulous, yet dangerous, subscription service to use to get your fix.

Previously, the Julep subscription service worked like this: every month you get a Julep box filled with polish, tools, and/or beauty items depending on the style profile that you've chosen. Each month you're given the opportunity to review the items that are contained in your style profile's box. At that time, you can opt to choose a different style profile and/or add on additional polishes and products at a discount.

Recently, Julep made some additions to their subscription options--now you can hand pick the items that go into your box each month. Check here to learn more about the Julep subscription service and rewards program. 

Do you already use Julep or a similar subscription service? If you've been on the fence you should look into it! I believe you can get your first box free right now! Bonus--if you aren't thrilled with the colors/products for the month, you can always skip it! 

I hope you all have a fab weekend, talk to you soon!

Homemade Mani Monday!

Beauty, DIY, Mani MondayMeganComment

I love doing my nails. I know a lot of people prefer to have them done, and I enjoy that too, but for me it's much more fun to do them myself! I'm kind of obsessed with nail polish. If you ask any of my normal friends, they can tell you I have way too many bottles of this stuff. Hence my obsession with Julep, a nail polish subscription service. (I'll give you more information on that below) 

These two polishes were in my last Julep box, Margaret on the left and Princess Grace on the right.

I love playing around with nail polish. This gave me a good idea for a future DIY!

Initially I was leaning toward just using the blue on it's own. I thought the orange would be better suited on my toes. But, after asking Twitterverse and Instaglobe what to do, I was quickly convinced that I needed to incorporate both colors! What a great idea/color combo! And thank you to everyone that responded! This look has a very sporty feel to me but fun and happy at the same time. Just what I need for a Monday!

let's not get too judgey, I'm no pro so this is not perfect but I still like it!

No pro tools used or needed here, just the brush that comes with the polish, some q-tips and a bobby pin!

JULEP Info:

Juelp is awesome if you are a nail polish fiend like me. It's like Birchbox and other beauty boxes except that it's nail polish and you can choose what you get in your box! Each month you have the option to skip the box all together or adjust your style profile so that you can get colors that you want. Julep polish sells for about $14 at Sephora but with the subscription you get over half off! Plus, you get points and freebies!

I could go on forever about Julep but I'll spare those that are not interested. If you'd like to see more info, I can do a review in the future. Just let me know in the comments below if you'd like to see a post on it! If you are interested in signing up for Julep, you can use the link below:

UPDATE! I have a COUPON CODE for a FREE Julep Maven box. Get your first box free with code, "FREEMAVEN"!! Enjoy and let me know how you like your new polish!

So what do you think? What colors are you sporting this week? Happy Monday Everyone!
