The Julep Maven Box Program: Review And Giveaway!

I think it's fairly obvious by now that I'm obsessed with nail polish. I paint my nails at least once a week (usually it's more like two or three times) and I'm always looking for new brands and colors to try out. That's where the Julep Maven program comes in.

This program is pretty ingenious -- and here's how it works. You go to and take the style quiz -- a quick, easy and completely free quiz that helps Julep figure out which colors will work specifically for you. This happens thanks to one of the five style profiles:

American Beauty
Boho Glam
Classic With A Twist
It Girl

After you figure out which profile fits you the best, your first Julep Maven Box will contain at least two nail polishes and other beauty favorites that are chosen just for you! Julep sends you an email on the 20th of every month previewing your upcoming box. If you love what they choose, do nothing -- and they'll ship it. Or you have the options of trying a different style, sending your box to a friend or skipping the month altogether (and the bill, of course). Tons of nail polish and products geared directly toward you every month -- what could be better, right?

I took the style profile and discovered that I'm Boho Glam. My intro box contained the following three products:

The Best Pedi Creme Ever: a foot cream that's formulated with shea butter, coconut oil and Vitamin E. It smells fantastic and makes your feet feel super soft!

Sasha: A beautiful peachy orange nail polish that applied like a dream and was completely creamy and opaque in two coats. And totally glossy without top coat!

Toni: Oh my gosh. It's only my new favorite color. Depending on the light, it might be chocolate, it might be lavender, it might be taupe, it might be violet ... you get the idea. In any light, it's gorgeous -- and it's seen here with only one coat! (Side note: My drama teacher in junior high was named Toni, and she was just the coolest person EVER.)

Interested in becoming a Julep Maven yourself? It's easy! Sign up here. You can even receive a discounted introductory box with the code THEBEAUTYOFLIFE. What are you waiting for?

And here's the best part. I'm offering a giveaway to one lucky reader! You'll have the chance to win an intro box of your very own. Just fill out the box below (all of the rules are within the box, too). Be sure to take the style quiz so you can find out what your style profile is and tell me what box you want if you win! Good luck!
