My November Julep Maven box came much later than it usually does. Normally, I can expect my box to arrive by the first or second of the month. This month, it arrived on the 8th. It was probably a combo of the hurricane that hit as well as some issues I had with my account and changing my mind a couple of times on what I wanted. They just switched over to a new site layout and it seems there were some issues with getting everything properly sorted. All the same, though, the issues
did get fixed (at least the ones related to my account that I brought to customer service`s attention) and my polishes arrived safe and sound. This month I, again, switched to the It-Girl box. Most months I select that option. It tends to have colors that I enjoy over the others. I wish there was a complete customize-your-own box option, but I suppose that would defeat the whole purpose of the different styles they prepare, right? As usual, the box presentation was lovely. When I opened up the box, the different cards were set on top. Under those were all the real goodies, hidden beneath a taupe tissue paper. This month, the bag was grey, and tied closed with a lovely maroon ribbon. That was set atop a bed of matching maroon confetti-paper shreddings. The It-Girl box comes with three nail polishes. This month, you will have received two colors and a matte top coat. The whole theme for November, across the boards, was suede. This was another month that had some people thrilled and others less than impressed. I was somewhere in the middle. I`ll admit that matte and suede are not my favorite of finishes. However, I`m on board to try out the formulation from Julep. I`m curious to find out how well they`ve mixed them. I think the curiosity is what got me this month. From left to right, the colors are: Nora, Hailee, and Matte Top Coat. In the photos released when selecting the boxes, I could have sworn that Nora appeared a bit more purple and Hailee a bit more green. In person, it seems the silver is quite prominent. That is something of a let down. I`m hoping once I get them on the nail it will bring out the color in them. As for the matte top coat, I doubt I`ll get a lot of use out of it. I have a near full bottle of the Essie matte top coat. I have had that one for a couple of years and used it, maybe, two or three times. Instead of a sweet-treat freebie this month, we received three small sample packets of Juleps One-Step Polish Remover Pads. I feel like this is their response to Deborah Lippmann`s Stripper On The Go polish remover pads. I am a-okay with this. I don`t often find myself wanting to remove my polish while I am out, but I`d like to try them all the same. I`m not over the moon with this box, however, I don`t feel that it is nearly as bad as some have said it is. But, it is all a matter of opinion and what you want from your nail polishes and products. If you are are Julep Maven, what style did you end up with this month and are you happy with it? If you aren`t, do you enjoy suede finish nail polishes?

(invitation code: 2016168) I believe the intro box promo is now $3.99, which is still a very good deal if you consider you will be getting at least 2 nail polishes, some boxes 3, and some boxes a full-sized product. Shipping is free for Mavens as well! I have heard from some, however, that if you use the code COLOR2012, the penny promo deal is still working, so it may be worth a shot.
