Julep in July

Wowzas! Julep is awesome! It’s only July 2nd and I’ve already received the my box for this month!

I signed up for Julep about two months ago…I posted about my first box here and this month’s box is my third one. I had every intention of sharing last month’s box, which was awesome btw,  but I’m sure I was super busy being a lazy bum while my kiddos were gone and completely let time pass me by. Sad I know, but I your girl was taking full advantage of my kid-free week…lol.

This month’s box wasn’t necessarily as great as the past two but it definitely wasn’t a total disappointment either. But of course, that is the chance you take with these monthly subscription services. Check out my Julep in July box and let me know what you think….

Clearly from the pictures Angela and Tracy look almost identical but trust me they are not. Angela is a “spectrum of dark blue and green,” and Tracy is more of a sparkly blue. And when placed side by side you can totally see the difference. Then there’s Nadia, my fav, a yellowish goldish combo that I can’t wait to try! Like I said earlier, the Julep in July box was a big hit for me this month. My thoughts might change once I actually swatch the polishes though…

And Julep always adds a little something extra…

Despite not loving this month’s box, I am still a huge fan of Julep Maven and I still highly recommend giving them a try if you haven’t already. The best part…you can try them for FREE plus shipping! Sign up here and enter code FREEBOX! Trust me it’s totally worth it!

Which polish was your fav in the Julep in July box? Are you a Julep Maven? What monthly beauty subscriptions are you subscribed to?
