My December Julep Maven Box!

Good morning, everyone! I have this month's Julep Maven box to share with you today! I've heard lots of mixed reactions to the boxes this month but I LOVED mine. One of my favorite boxes so far! Granted, my box wasn't one of the ones with nail appliques, but I probably would have liked that as well. On to the box!

In this box:
Pomegranate Body Creme ($18)
Fast Dry Top Coat ($14)
Helena Nail Polish ($14)
Nail Pearls(free holiday gift)

Total Retail Price: $46. I paid the normal $19.99 Maven subscription price!

Helena is a gorgeous and bright fuchsia pink. It's a little more purple than my pictures are showing, but really pretty anyway! This was 2 coats.

I also used the quick dry top coat in these pictures! I like it, it's thinner so don't expect Poshe or Seche Vite, but it made the polish shiny and I was able to touch my nails once I painted all 10. I've heard it smears designs a bit, so I'll keep this one around for when I have solid colors. That is common with a thinner quick dry top coat anyway. 

I love love love the pomegranate body creme! It smells really yummy, and my hands feel great after using it. I think it is my favorite hand lotion that Julep has sent me! Not the least bit greasy and absorbs very well into the skin within a couple of minutes. A+ from me!

I haven't had a chance to try the little pearls yet because I don't think the color goes well with this polish color so I'll get back to you on that in a later post.

All in all, as I said before, I love this box! What do you think of what I got? Did you get this box or a different one? I'd love to hear what you thought of your box this month!

  1. im totally stealing your lotion and i LOVE that polish color! SO pretty!!
    : )
    awesome box this month!!

  2. Yeah, I had to stalk Julep for my credits. I did get them though. I used them to pay for that Black Friday deal where you got 3 months for $39.95. So I got a 3 month subscription for $9.95. WOOT!!!! I was happy about that. You can't use the referrel credits on single boxes but you can for multiples. So keep that in mind if you get any credits. Put them toward a 3 month or a 1 year subscription so you get your boxes for free. :) I love Helena!!! I'm getting the "It Girl" box. It has the same polish as yours but I'll get nail appliques instead of the cream. I have been dying to try appliques.

  3. I got the same exact thing as you but I got green glitter instead of the pearls. I haven't tried the color or top coat yet. I did use the glitter this weekend when I did a Christmas themed mani and I loved it. I also love the lotion. Smells soooo good and not greasy at all.

  4. i love the color! - i gave you an award, your tagged in my newest post!

  5. I got the Bombshell box. I'm super curious about the appliques, but I did not receive them either. Liking the top coat so far, but it dulled a glitter, so I agree -- it might be best over cremes. :)

  6. My box is almost identical, although I got little silvery star jewels instead of pearls! I haven't tried Helena yet but really liked the color, although I feel like I've gotten purplish polish shades for the past few months. I have purple, though, so I'll still take it. :)

  7. I asked for a shelf pull because I already have 2 bottles of Helena--she's my fave! *love swoon*

    I got Boho Glam this time--peacock nail decals (that hooked me right there), fast dry and the lotion. I spilled part of my bottle the first use :*( But it is now my favorite quick dry! I splurged on the mystery box this week so I hope there's another bottle in there!

    I have to say I was a bit lukewarm when I began JM but now I adore it! And having the choice to change is nice too.

    Those little beads are adorable, I can't way to try that!
