Julep October It Girl Box

Love the look of this, hate candy corn though!

This is my first official Julep Maven monthly box, I was super excited to pick out the colors and went with the It Girl box cuz it comes with 3 nail polishes. Since this was my first official month after the intro box I got a free add-on, the other boxes came with the Quick Dry Polish Drops, so I picked that as an add on.

Leslie: (1) Black and silver specked shimmer. I really loved this color, it's a super intense black and the shimmer is super light. 
Regular Price:$14.00/Maven Price:$11.20.

Caroline: (2) A really dark burgundy shimmer. I really like this color, it looks more brown than red, but it's really nice and works for any age! Regular Price:$14.00/Maven Price:$11.20.
Glenda: (3) Radiant silver metallic crackle. Not a huge fan of this one, it needs more than just one coat to show well and you have to do it super quick cuz it dries so fast!
Regular Price:$14.00/Maven Price:$11.20

2 Glitter pots in Orange and Black.

Total Value before add ons: Regular Price: $42/ Maven Price:$33.6.

That's already totally worth it, even without adding the free add-on to the equation!


Add-ons are $4.99 when you get the box for that month.

Quick Dry Polish Drops: Really liked these quick drops. They work great and I love the size! My other quick dry drops are from OPI (Drip Dry Lacquer Drying Drops ) and they're only 9ml for $6, this one is 30 ml. The smell is OK, but it stays after a while which kinda bothered me a bit, but overall I loved the product.
Regular Price: $14/ Maven Price: $11.20.
I got this item for free since it was my first month, so they gave me a free add-on.
Sofia: (4) Sheer spring green with a flash of aqua irridescent glitter. If you hold it under a light first, this will glow in the dark. Gorgeous lime green color with glitter, a really cute color. It works better as a top coat with another color as a base(I used Kate from my intro box).It works better as more of a top coat with another color under it, but with several coats you could just wear it by itself.
Regular Price:$14.00/Maven Price:$11.20.
Sabrina(AmericanBeauty): (5)Zesty orange shimmer crackle. Lovely orange crackle nail polish, I wish it wasn't crackled, but the color is perfect for Halloween. I did Leslie with this one on top, the black + orange combination looks just awesome!
Regular Price:$14.00/Maven Price:$11.20.

These items were add-ons to my monthly subscription, but they are normally worth $4.99 each.

Total Value for the add-ons: $42/Total Value for Mavens: $33.6. I paid: $9.98.

Total amount I paid for the October+ add ons box: $29.97
Total Value: $84/Total Value for Mavens: $67.2.

  I loved my October box so much! Even with the add-ons the value of what I got is more than double what I paid for it! I'm super happy with my Julep Maven subscription and don't think I will cancel it anytime soon.
