November Julep Maven box featured a collection of beautiful suede (matte) metallic shades along with two glossy shades. As a bonus nail polish remover towelettes and pink grapefruit body frosting was also incuded. Since i got the entire November nail woredobe i also recieved a second pink grape fruit body frosting and a body scrub, a small Julep towel, extra nail polish remover towlettes and all the shades of the month including a matte top coat! Needless to say i was giving a whole lot of thanks for this awesome box. It litterally felt like Julep Christmas!
My initial Julep Maven Box for November.
Julep nail polish remover towelettes-
I found these to be really handy. I have a 2 year old son, and while i use the pump nail polish remover we received a few months ago, sometimes it is nice to have something that is completely spill proof while doing my nails. Plus i put some in my purse to remove a chipped manicure on the run. Its nice to get home and have clean nails ready to polish!
The two colors included in the Classic With a Twist box are Minka and Brit (See swatches below with the nail wardrobe box.)
This super soft, citrus smelling, body frosting is so moisturizing and light. I love how this feels like whip cream for the skin. The scent wasn't too strong but did leave a nice lingering smell. I used this on my knees and legs and it made my skin feel super smooth.
The Fall Warmth Nail Wardrobe-
This box included all the colors from this months nail collection plus an extra Pink Grapefruit Body Frosting and Body Scrub, Julep mini Towel, extra nail remover towelettes, and a matte top coat. This box retails for an extra $30 in addition to the monthly $19.99 box. This would have been my first nail wardrobe purchase since i was so excited about these polishes. Even though the price tag, $50, seems a bit pricey for nail polish you are getting over and beyond the worth of that. Each nail polish retails for $14 dollars, meaning the polish alone is worth $112 and this doesn't even include your monthly maven box! I think a purchase like this would be great for a gift (keep the wardrobe box and give your maven box!) it would also help to introduce your friends to some great Julep products. Or even if a few friends put in a little money each and got the box to share. It is worth it any way you slice it. Not something i would get every month, but a treat that turns out to be worth it non the less.
These two are perfectly paired. There is nothing better then having a nice, citrus scented, exfoilating scrub before you use some soft, fluffy, critrus scented body frosting. These products compliment each other without being over the top.
This small towel is fantastic to use to dry your hands right before a Julep manicure.
Fall Warmth Nail Colors-
I honestly like the variety in this collection. Even though many of the colors look alike they truly represent the colors of fall.
Warm, muted, matte, silver, gold, green, purple, and copper, remind me of the holidays. Copper and gold in the falling leaves, deep green for the coniferous trees, smokey purple for the makeup trends. Apply smoothly, dry quickly, cover opaque in one coat, and are smooth to the touch. All have a silver and grayed undertone to them. If you aren't a fan of matte colors a quick swipe of Julep Top Coat turns these shades into shiny metallic.
Brit- Soft silver gray.

Also include in the Fall Warmth collection were two non Suede shades called Donna and Trina. Both shades have a glossy finish. While not as warm as the matte Suede's these shades add a nice variety of color to the collection. To turn these shades matte simply apply a matte top coat. These also applied opaque in one coat. I found them to dry just a little bit slower than the suede shades. Still excellent quality
Donna- Smokey peacock blue crème

Trina- Deep aubergine shimmer.

Matte Top Coat- Fast drying matte-fying topcoat. Turn any glossy shade into a muted matte with this topcoat.
