Fall Color with Julep!

My nail polish obsession is second only to my makeup obsession. I just love it when the seasons change and I can “justify” new nail color purchases because the colors just HAVE to change, right?? RIGHT??? Well, I love all the new fall colors and that’s when I usually go for grays, browns, deep purples, deep reds as well as varying shades of nude (I mostly stick with brights in the summer). Anyway, this is why I am so glad that Juiep is in my life. A few months ago, I joined their Maven program and ever since then, I’ve only received automatic shipments of some of their beautiful nail colors (I can control the frequency of the shipments), but I’ve also been able to take advantage of some super duper sales, that are only for Mavens. This season, as I’m switching over to deeper colors, there are two Julep polishes that are my favorites. Read on for more!
Julep Alaina Nail Polish
My first favorite is “Alaina,” a beautiful taupe that is so versatile, which makes it perfect as an everyday shade. Besides the usual beige and gray tones, Alaina also sometimes looks like it has the tiniest touch of lavender. This one works for me when I’m calling on bankers as well as out to dinner with my husband. It will definitely be a staple this fall.

Like almost all of the Julep polishes in my collection, Alaina applies smoothly and lasts well with a good basecoat and top coat.

Julep Myrtle Nail Polish
Myrtle is another of my favorites for fall. Julep describes this color as “Flapper Red,” which is a great description. It’s deep and smooth and shiny and applies like a dream. I always apply two coats but it provides great coverage with just one. Myrtle shouldn’t just be relegated to special occasions---it can be worn with your favorite moto jacket, sweater set or business suit. I love a good red polish and the consistency of this one is just great!

Julep polishes retail for $14 per bottle but Mavens can purchase a single polish for $11.20 (or a greater discount). The monthly Maven boxes are charged at $19.99 and consist of two polishes and another beauty product (some boxes contain three polishes and no beauty product). Every Maven has the opportunity to opt out of a monthly box AND has the extra privilege of shopping at the Maven Secret Store, where nail polishes can be purchased for huge discounts. Signing up is easy AND the first Maven box is FREE! Click here for more information!
