Julep Giveaway!

Just like most of you, I love Julep. If you live in the Seattle area, seriously, get a parlor membership. I talked about it before right here. I go in at least once a month to get a pedicure and my free manicure. Two weeks ago I got I got an Elizabeth gel mani and Demi on my toes. I'm in love with the dark blue shade! It lasted a solid twelve days before I couldn't take the grow out anymore. I'm done with gel/shellac polish though. This was the fourth salon I tried. The removal is the same everywhere and it seriously dries out my nails and makes them brittle and ugly. A ten day mani isn't worth two weeks of nail recovery effort.
 
 
But I still love Julep! As much as I want to, I'm not signing up for Maven (I just can't bring myself to have a Maven subscription and a parlor membership), but I did snag a $20 Polish Lover’s Mystery Box a few weeks ago. Here's what I got:

Stella, Renee, Sasha, Sienna
 
While I was waiting to pay for my mani/pedi I noticed a little shelf in the corner. They sell retiring shades for $2!! TWO DOLLARS! The bottles look different because these are the .25 oz bottles that the parlors get, rather than the .27 oz bottles that are designed to sell. I found five fun shades and bought two of each. One set for me and one set for YOU!
 

 
Man, my phone sucks. The colors are:
 
Angelina - deep purple
Diane - forest grey-green
Holly - pale pink frost
Michelle - midnight blue
Lucy - dark burgundy
 
Enter to win these five shades of Julep polish below.
I'll announce the winner on Friday, October 5 at 12:01am EST and ship it out the following day!

Such a fun giveaway, friend! When I do finally visit Seattle, you'll have to take me to the parlor ;)

My go-to for Fall is ALWAYS dark red!

I wear black a lot in the fall and winter. Boring, but classic.

JulieBug said...

I just got a new deep red that I am looking forward to wearing this season. :)

Katrin said...

April said...

These colors are gorgeous!! I have never used this brand before!

Nikki P said...

I love earth tones for the Fall, deep purples look great with my complexion.

Suze said...

I wish I lived closer so I could have a parlor membership. I love their polishes. I have a maven membership and just love it.

Those colors you snagged are beautiful! I like dark colors- burgundy, dark blue, browny purples- pale neutral colors- nude, gray, etc- for fall. I found a really pretty nude from ELF but they don't put names on the bottles. Gorgeous though. And Gunta from Julep is a beautiful blue. Though that Elizabeth that you're wearing is really pretty too!

Laura said...

Beautiful colors! i have never tried Julep. How does it go on and how is the wear?

Jen said...

I'm not sure what my fav is yet. I really want to try a gray this fall.

Raquel said...

One of my favorite shades to wear for the fall is a berry/red shade. I love Essie Recessionista!

Leeann @ Join the Gossip said...

I know it's not a fall shade but I am obsessed with Ballet Slippers by Essie. I finally get the appeal of the brand. I am so cheap and always buy the bargain polishes but this polish is amazing!

Mrs. Jones said...

I'm loving all things PINK even though it's fall. I'm trying to wear lots of pink for breast cancer awareness in October!

Calli said...

steel grey!

Karen Peterson said...

I want, I want!

That midnight blue would look fabulous on my toes.

The Tall chick said...

Hey! Thanks for the comment on my nail color! I was checking your blog out and noticed you live in Seattle as well. I have never heard of this Julep Parlor place. It sounds like a great place and price! How are the manicures? I get Shellac done simply for the fact that I beat my hands up pretty good, I hate fake nails, and have realized that shellac has been the most durable for me. Does Julep offer anything like that?

Jodie said...

I love giveaways!! My favorite shade to wear this Fall is Essie's Skirting the Issue!! Gorgeous color!!

Krystal said...

Love grays!

Grace Lee said...

Vampy reds!

Kat@shop.school.sleep. said...

i like dark purples, but i'm intrigued by the dark blues/teals you have

Tiffany @ Polka Dotted Cats said...

Girl, you know I'm lucky if I get polish on both hands without killing someone...but I like the dark colors so much, especially nearly black purples!

Aubrey S. said...

I love just about every shade from the Trina and Turk collection for fall.

Cami said...

Teal!! And purples this year

thanks great the great giveaway :)

I honestly can't justify spending money on something that is horrible for my nails and makes it so much harder for me to function. I seriously can't do fake or acrylics and I think that no matter how much I try and keep the underside clean, it always looks gross.

I like the colors you were wearing :) I can't pull of blue, but you def can!
