Review: Julep Nail Club, what I got for 1cent.

Julep is a monthly nail polish and nail care club. The cost is 19.99 per month but with a code you can get your first month for just $5. Remember to skip the month if you don't want to be charged! You will be emailed on the 20th of every month, you can then choose to skip a month, choose a different package, or do nothing and receive the package for that month. There are 5 different boxes, It Girl, American Beauty, Boho Glam, Bombshell, and Classic with a Twist. If you aren't feeling the box they match you up with, there will be a link on the page that says "Not feeling like a Classic with a Twist? Click here to see other style profiles."

On first picture is the "1 Cent" package in 'American Beauty'. It included 2 nail polishes, Leighton and Demi and a hand scrub. In the package I also received a glitter pot for your nails, and 2 samples of hand cream to be used after the hand scrub. The glitter pot is a very pretty bright purple but had no name or number.

On second picture is the next months package in American Beauty which was 19.99 flat. It included 2 nail polishes, Anne and Maria and a pomegranate body scrub. The package also included a "Nail Therapy" polish for being one of the first to try out Julep and two nail polish wipes.

                 Demi, Anne, Maria, and Leighton.

Keep in mind I am in no way a nail expert or anything of the sort, these are just my personal opinions. With just one coat my nails were covered completely and evenly which is a big plus in my book. I hate having to apply multiple coats of nail polish. The consistency is also lovely in my opinion, I don't find them too watery and they apply easily for me, meaning I didn't end up with too much on my hands like I usually do.The colors are all very pretty and wearable and I look forward to receiving more Julep polishes.

The Pomegranate Body Scrub smells amazing. It has a thick and grainy consistency and works well when ex-foliating.

The hand scrub on the other hand smells gross. It's not horrible enough to avoid using the product, and isn't too overpowering as long as you aren't looking for something to make your hands smell good. The hand scrub is supposed to "boost the effectiveness of hand cream", which is stated on the back of the tube, so the smell really isn't a problem. The consistency is weird too, it has chunky bits for ex-foliating but it also has runny liquid. Overall it is a good hand scrub.

I am very happy with both packages I received, the 1cent one and the one I've paid full price for. The products are actually better then I expected them to be, considering I am picky about nail polishes.

The 1 cent deal is no longer working but they've changed it to $5 for your first package. I highly recommend trying it out. 1cent is definitely a good deal but $5 isn't too bad either for the quality of the products.

Shipping is FREE, even to Canada!
