Years ago when I was a pre-teen I loved to paint my nails. I had tons of bottles of nail polish and I would wear a different color on each fingernail. But as an adult with the whole job, kids, house thing I don’t have the time to do anything with my nails. It’s just too much bother and they chip and then look bad for days and plus I don’t have the patience to wait for them to dry. Just too busy. But when I saw Julep’s add for a free box of nail polish I couldn’t resist. For just the cost of shipping ($4.00) Julep sent me this:
It contained two bottles of nail color, cuticle serum and 2 nail buffing squares. I did not try the serum yet but I did rather like the sanding squares. They did a really good job and they were easy to hold onto. Here I am with the red color:
It’s not a red I would have normally chosen but I suppose it’s a good color for Valentine’s Day. They give you a style quiz to determine what your style is. Apparently I’m Classic with a Twist. I decided to go ahead and try the polka dotted look.
It reminded me of Minnie Mouse. This look took way too much time.
Julep Pros: Nail polish seemed to dry fairly fast but the colors took two coats.
Julep Cons: I found the bottles crazy hard to open and the smell was just plain awful. The smell alone has probably put me off painting my nails for awhile.
Conclusion: Think I will stick with my OPI colors but for the teenager or person who really likes a variety of colors this could be a great subscription.
