Julep May 2014 French Twist Box Review

I'm not sure what was the delay this month but my Julep box finally came the other day.  I waited on the review until I had a chance to try the new Plie wand. And I'm working on this now and realizing my pictures are horrible this month.  So sorry. :(

The theme this month was French Twist and I think the colors were very springy.

Love seeing this box in my mail.

The box this month was a little bigger then my normal box. I knew the wand was coming but I didn't think it would have made the box bigger.  Not really sure what I was expecting. LOL

First look and I still couldn't tell what was going on.

And finally I got into the goodies.   This month I opted for the Bombshell box which came with two polishes and the Plie wand.  (Again sorry about the picture :( )

Here is the picture right from Julep so you can see the colors a little better.  This month the colors I got are.

  • Laree - a golden pink taffeta shimmer and oh my is this pretty.  I actually used this with my testing and I will be leaving it on a couple of days.  I'm not a huge pink nail person but this has just enough of a hint of orange shimmer to make it work for me.
  • Saaya - a golden apricot shimmer.  I'm not sure but I don't think I own any orange polishes so this is a welcome addition to my collection.  This will be my next mani for sure.
  • The Plie Wand - This is an ergonomic nail polishing tool.  I really wanted to try this out and see how it works.  I'm not sure I'm sold yet but I did like it and I will be giving it another try since I was really trying it out and you know it takes a couple tries to decide if I really like something.  

These pictures are fuzzy and I didn't clean up my nails yet but here is Laree applied with the Plie wand. I would say this is a little neater then I normally do but I'm hoping it gets even better with practice and decide which way I like to use the wand.

 Julep is a monthly nailpolish subscription box that costs $19.99 a month and you get to select from the different boxes each month. This is changing in June to a configure your own type box and the cost will go up but for May it is still this. They also have a store online that gives you the Maven price and free shipping if you have a subscription. I love this since they always have some good deals on their that I can grab when looking for a specific color.  If you would like to try your first box for free use code FREEBOX and you will only have to pay S&H (which I think is about $4.99)

Did you get a box this month?  What are your thoughts on the Plie wand?  I'm still holding out judgement but I'm sure to update in a future post as I use it more.


disclaimer:  As usual that is my referral link up there so if you decide to try Julep out I will get Jules to use towards future purchases however even with that all opinions are my own. Thanks

  1. It's still not as easy as having someone paint them for you, but I think it's better than the normal ones. LOL.
