One of my best physical features has always been my hands. Ever since I was a little girl, I've had long, then fingers with nails that grow quickly and are as hard as steel. Since I'm a firm believer in the "if you got it, flaunt it" mantra, I love painting my nails and think that a mani/pedi is one step away from pure bliss.
Julep is a hand, nail and foot care brand with four boutique nail parlors in the Seattle area. Founded on the belief that beauty is a connection, not a competition, Julep was created to celebrate the bond between girlfriends and the beauty of the human spirit. I recently had the chance to become a Julep Maven for a month and was sent a Sneak Peek Box to review. Keep reading to learn more!

Julep is a nail, hand and foot care brand on the move. They are constantly designing new limited edition nail polish colors for all of the hottest runway styles and fashions. They even create an entire line of skin care products specially formulated for hands and feet. Each time Julep launches a new product, they put together a great Sneak Peek Box for the top beauty editors and celebrity trendsetters to review.
It never failed though, that the girlfriends of those at Julep would begin asking for a Sneak Peek Box of their own. This is how the Julep Maven program came to be...now we can all be Julep Girlfriends!
In order to become a Julep Maven, simply visit their site and take the Style Editor quiz. This will identify you as one of four Style Editor profiles and you will begin receiving Sneak Peek Boxes once a month afterwards.

Your monthly Maven box may also include all-time and cult favorites which Julep likes to keep on the top of all beauty editors' minds. Over $40 worth of product is included in each and every Sneak Peek Box and it will always be shipped to you completely FREE. Being a Julep Maven even nabs you 20% off julep.com purchases and invitations to exclusive Julep Maven online events.
I couldn't wait to tear into my Sneak Peek Box when it arrived, for I LOVE surprises! This is what was included:
- Julep Glow On Age Defying Hand Brightener
- Taylor Julep Nail Vernis (Perfect Periwinkle Creme Polish)
- Maya Julep Nail Vernis (Peachy Pink Seashell Shimmering Polish)
The Julep Glow On Age Defying Hand Brightener is designed to deliver smoother, younger-looking, more touchable hands. It's micro-light diffusing technology gives hands an instant glow and luminescent appearance. I gave it a try and liked the silky feel to my hands after using it, but have to admit that this was a product I wouldn't normally have bought for myself.
After seeing the fabulous shades of nail polish that were included, I would have much preferred to have more polishes or maybe even a cuticle smoothing oil included in my Sneak Peak Box. But, I'm sure that I will find some great new products through the Julep Maven program that I wouldn't have tried otherwise.
I have never had the opportunity to sample any Julep brand nail, hand and foot products before, but have to admit that I adore their nail polish. I really appreciate the fact that all of their polishes are free of DBP, toluene, formaldehyde and formaldehyde resin, but are still extremely beautiful and long lasting nonetheless.
I'm also a fan of the Julep Maven program itself. There's a ton of flexibility included in this monthly plan, plus you get such fun and accessible ways to connect to runway fashion and seasonal trends too...and it's all delivered right to your doorstep for free!
Disclosure: I received the Julep Maven Sneak Peek Box from Julep in order to facilitate my review. No other compensation was received. This product review is based on my own personal experiences with this item and is completely honest and objective.
