Julep Maven May Box: American Beauty

This month, I switched my subscription to Julep Maven from "It Girl" to "American Beauty" because I liked the polishes better. Well, I should say I like the polish better because most of the choices came with Kylie (the magnetic polish) this month.

Below is a look at everything included in May's box.  2 polishes Kylie & Ellie, a foot file, The Best Pedi Prep Ever, a sample packet of The Best Pedi Creme Ever and a cosmetic bag. The best pedi prep ever is a roll on, used to exfoliate and soften the skin before filing. 

This is Kylie, described as a "sultry violet megnetic polish." I can't wait to try this out!  I have not used a magnetic polish with this "wand" type of magnet before.

It was hard to capture the true color of Ellie. But, I think this awkward, upside down photo does it best :) Ellie is described as an "opalescent seashell pink with holographic shimmer."

I was pretty impressed with the bag included.  It is a black quilted bag with a cute signature zipper pull.

Inside there are elastic pockets! Very nice for what I consider a "freebie" or extra in this month's box.

Sorry, I had to really wash this photo out with the flash to get a good shot of the pockets.  The inside is really black just like the outside.

What do you think? Have you tried Julep polishes before?

Right now you can join the Julep Maven monthly subscription program for 1¢!  If you want to try the Julep Maven Box they are offering a promotion where first time members can get their first box for only 1¢ and you can cancel anytime. Click Here and enter COLORS4ONE at checkout.

This is my second Julep Maven box and so far I have been really happy with my subscription!  I like that you can see what you are getting before it ships. This way, you can change which box you will receive or skip the month entirely.  I have been so pleased that I actually ordered the Cinco De Mayo surprise box this month as well! I can't wait for it to get here! And, of course I will post pictures when it does :)
