Julep

I am officially on the Julep train. I haven't signed up for Maven, but I did go to the parlor to get a mani/pedi. I chose Amy (smokey light blue) for my fingers, but then saw sparkly Sophia and couldn't decide. My manicurist told me that Sophia is a topcoat (sheer spring green with a flash of aqua iridescent glitter), and said it could go right on top of Amy. She also told me that it glows in the dark! What?! Nolan is into glow in the dark everything right now. How could I resist? The topcoat totally covered the blue of Amy, but it still turned out a great color.



While I was there I signed up for a parlor membership. For $18 a month you get a mani, 15-20% off all other services, 10% off products, plus special offers throughout the year. If you can't make it in for your monthly mani, it carries over to the next month. They also offer free upgrades on your birthday and Toddler Tuesday. I can bring my kids in! They'll play with them while I'm pampered. Perfect. And friends can come with me on Tuesdays and use my membership discount. I get a pedicure once a month anyway, throw in an $18 mani and I'm in! Plus the parlor is adorable, the ladies were so sweet, and I love that there are no chemicals.

I'm not ready to join Maven, but when I got home from my appointment I perused their website and noticed the Mystery Boxes were offered. Each box contains at least two polishes, and range in $60-$200 worth of Julep products. I couldn't decide which one to get. My style profile is Boho Glam, but they all looked great, so ordered three! Oops! Check out all my goodies:

Boho Glam ($62)
 Foot File and Pedi Prep, Michelle, Blake, Alyson
These were definitely my favorite shades.


It Girl ($70)
Basecoat, Sandra, Megan, Diane, Charlotte 


Classic With A Twist ($60)
Pomegranate Body Scrub, Jennifer, Gayle, Maya


Not too shabby!

Glow in the dark nails?!?! That's amazing! That would be so much fun!

I would love for you to stop by and say hello! leslyni.blogspot.com

Leeann @ Join the Gossip said...

Wait - I'm confused? Julep and Maven are two different things or Maven is an upgrade to Julep?

Either way - pretty colors!

My mom recently got a pedi and didn't know her polish was glow in the dark. Freaked her out lol!

Chris said...

Ok this nail place that you go to sounds amazing! AND, I'm with Leeann... there are two different companies? I think Julep was Maven. I'm so confused! Happy Weekend!

I just joined the Maven program and got my intro Boho Glam box this week. I also ordered 2 of the mystery boxes but they haven't arrived yet. So cool that you get to go to the salon and get pampered!
