WHAT EXACTLY DO I MEAN BY SPECIAL DELIVERY?
I've been a Maven for quite a bit of time now, and I have thoroughly enjoyed what I've gotten each month from them! It's definitely something that I really do look forward to! There are often little surprises here or there as well, that make it even more fun :) I thought that I would try to order some products through Julep on my own-not with the usual monthly box that I receive, but with some items that I'd been craving on the site for a while. One of the main products I was after was the cute nail polish caddie that will hold up to 48 total nail polishes + up to 9 additional more polishes or other nail products! The rest of my order was a consequence of me shopping at Julep!
WHAT DID I GET WITH MY ORDER?
- WELL-STOCKED COLOR CADDY $34.99 * this was on special and included: a silk-effect Top Coat, Oxygen Top Coat, and Nail Treatment + nail polish remover pads!!
- NAIL POLISH- BETH $11.20* Maven Price!
- NAIL POLISH- LOVE $4.99* Maven price!
*TOTAL: $51.18 W/Shipping included.
NAIL POLISH CADDY- WELL-STOCKED VERSION :)
I've had my eye on this thing for a while, so when the item popped up as the deal you see below with an extra polish, top coat, and treatment- in addition to some polish remover pads I could NOT resist! For under $35, that is an absolutely excellent steal!
I did see some complaints on for example, at the Julep.com site that indicated that the design was poor and the overall quality of the caddy was not good. I did NOT find this was true with the one that I received, and it DID look like the one pictured below AND in the reviews that I saw. I was VERY pleased with the product- it was PERFECT for holding my polishes and I still had plenty of room for MORE ;) The caddy has pockets too on top, that will allow for extra product storage, and the inserts for the bottom part of the caddy will let you customize in a way that you can put other products below as well!
The extra products like the nail treatment and two top-coats were also products that I didn't have so I was glad to snatch these up as well. I've heard a LOT of positive things about the nail treatment and it was the first thing that I used when I opened my box :) It works VERY well and you will see an INSTANT improvement and great nail look with the first usage! The nail remover pads DID work surprisingly well and in fact, worked better than the liquid I was using from another company. It also requires that you use far less, there's almost no mess and cleanup, and it was a LOT easier removing my polish. The remover pads worked really well on even the usually difficult to remove type of chunky foil polish with gel top coat too! If it can remove all of that with fairly good ease, then I know it's a fairly decent remover :)
NAIL POLISH-BETH $11.20
Metalics have definitely been on my radar for a while and I like to pick one up almost every time I get a box or order something from Julep! I didn't have this one yet and it's just a really pretty take on a glittery silver polish with specks of turquoise and peach. Two coats will definitely give you a nice color like the one pictured, but I also had to top the polish off with the gel clear top coat from Julep as well to get the shine that's pictured too.
NAIL POLISH- LOVE $4.99
This polish has been out since Christmas 2014, but it was only available in a gift set that was not something I was really interested in; the set had other colors that I did not really want so I'm glad that I patiently waited until Julep decided to sell it as a single color! Its a VERY pretty color in person, with a beautiful light gold pearl finish with pretty red and pink sparkly flecks. Its a unique color and for the price it's a great steal too!
