I am a nurse and don't usually do anything more to my nails than keep them trimmed and apply clear or super sheer polishes because long painted nails are generally frowned upon in my profession. I recently signed up for the Julep beauty box and received a box of 12 polishes free. Many of the shades are very deep -- purples, blues, grays, and metallics. I painted my fingernails with the …Read more

I have been painting my nails weekly for the last 40 years. I have tried nail polishes worth less than $1 and more than $20 a bottle. This is the first time a color lasts at least 5 days and looks as good as day 1. I did not use a base. I have tried 5 different colors, 4 of them were strong colors and all lasted. I guess the results are different for all and that may explain the bad reviews. Opi …Read more

Wow! I'm kinda stunned at all these bad reviews because I've just tried Julep recently and really like it!
I got an online deal to get 12 free polishes for signing up for the Maven subscription. I figured I could quit after the first month if I didn't like the polish... but I do.
Yes the formula is a bit runny but nothing I can't work with. I've tried 5 colors …

I do my nails every weekend. This was my first Julep polish experience and will definitely be my last. I have the color Coco. It is easily the most thin, streaky polish I've ever used. Three coats required for a nice even finish. Doesn't dry quickly. The bottle lends itself to tipping over, brush is ok, Just a normal brush. I personally don't require the pro-wide brush because my …Read more

The tl;dr version of this review can be summed up as follows: No. Bad. All wrong. Do not buy.
I signed up for a free Julep Maven trial box, then forgot to cancel before they shipped me another box (which was heavily discounted, luckily). I actually loved some of the colors they sent me, including one that I normally wouldn't go for (an orangeish red with a bronze metallic sheen). I have …

I'm pretty surprised by some of the terrible reviews here! I have been a Julep maven for over a year and I have over three dozen of these polishes. It has become the only brand I ever need to use. I started out as a multi-brand user, I had a bunch of drugstore brands and also Color Club, OPI, etc., and some indies I got for the glitters. After I had a range of colors from Julep I've …Read more

**See updates at the bottom of my review**

My review is only for the polish as a retail customer. I have no experience with customer service or with being a Julep Maven.

Unlike the others here, I've had an excellent experience with this product.

I used Jessie (Bombshell) on top of Seche Ridge Filler then topped it off with Essie All in One. I just needed one …

Confusing business model. So I get its a subscription box but what is this skipping and no skipping thing. I don't even want the things they send me. There are business where they allow us to return partial items. This company you can't. And they don't cover your return fee.
Nail polish colors are great. But for the price and size, it's not worth it. The makeup, I hate …

They reel you in with a free beauty box, and then you try to paint your nails and disaster ensues. The packaging is cute but the brush is flimsy. The colors are gorgeous but the formula is either runny or globby, with streaky coverage at best. It takes an eternity to dry, and then when it does, it chips almost immediately. Seriously, if a company's thing is nail polish, you'd think …Read more

I so happen to be a julep Maven and personally enjoy Julep's makeup and skincare products and find that they are excellent in quality and the packaging for them is great to. However unfortunately, none of these ring true to their nail polishes which sadly is what julep is known for which puzzles me... Yes they have a beautiful and fun variety of colors which is what reels you in. But when …Read more
