Julep Giveaway

I've talked about Julep quite a bit around here. If you aren't familiar, Julep is a Seattle-based nail polish company started in 2007 as one little nail parlor. Since then Jane Park (former Starbucks exec) has added three more parlor locations, started a nail polish line, and employs 180 people. In the past 18 months Julep has introduced 186 new shades and 52 nail, hair, skin and beauty products. This company is blowing up. In an article in the Seattle Times, Jane says she's using her latest funds to develop a full line of cosmetics. I'm excited! Right now you can buy Julep in their parlors, on their website, on QVC, and at Sephora. 

To me, the most awesome thing about Julep is that the polish is 4-free. But there are other things to love. The products aren't tested on animals. The company donates time, products and proceeds to organizations that support women. And the colors are always on trend. Even Oprah loves Julep and gave away a 12-piece box as part of her 2012 Favorite Things.

I've had a parlor membership for over a year and love going in to get a mani/pedi every month. I also joined Julep Maven ten months ago and can't wait to get my monthly packages filled with nail polish and other beauty goodies. You can join Maven right here. Just take the quiz to find out which style fits you best and get your introductory box free with code: FREEBOX. The best thing about this subscription is that you can preview all five boxes each month and select the one you want or skip the month altogether. I don't know of any other subscription that let you do that. Plus, you can add on items at a deep discount and get 20% off all other products and free shipping.  

Having the parlor membership and the Maven subscription hasn't stopped me from purchasing mystery boxes, shopping online, and stocking up at their warehouse sale. Going through my nail polish collection the other day, I realized I have way too much. I have duplicates and some colors that I'll never wear, so I thought I'd do a giveaway. I've got five fall colors and a base coat up for grabs.


Julep Base Coat - Protects nails from yellowing and staining caused by dark nail color
Alyson - Almond crème
Olivia - Dark chocolate truffle crème
Cindy - Emerald green with gold micro-glitter metallic
Michelle - Midnight, inky blue crème
Alaina - Driftwood taupe crème

Enter using Rafflecopter below.
I'll choose one winner at midnight EST on November 22.
Open to U.S. residents only.

Only nail polish I have found that doesn't chip immediately. Goes on like butta. Well worth the aggravation of trying to paint your opposite dominate hand.

I have too many! Affair in Red Square may be my most favorite, but it really is difficult to choose. :)

I have a burnt umber I really like for fall.

What a great giveaway!

Favorite Fall nail polish color? Hmmm ... I am always a sucker for golds or OPI's Lincoln Park at Midnight (a dark and rich berry color).
Although - I am currently rocking a fun and bright blue color.
