I'm not much of a nail polish person, but when I saw that Julep offers their first box for free, I thought why not? I could always cancel afterwards. I took the style quiz and found that I was a Classic with a Twist. Julep has four other style profiles, Modern Beauty (only beauty products), It Girl (only nail colors), Boho Glam, and Bombshell. You are able to switch between the different profiles each month if you choose. I love that Julep offers that type of flexibility. I ended up going with the Classic with a Twist starter box for my free box.

- Sample of Julep's Glycolic Hand Scrub
- Julep's Kennedy (Khaki Crème) - $11.20
- Julep's Niecy (Bright Pink Crème) - $11.20
- Julep's Essential Cuticle Oil - $14.40
I was a little skeptical of the khaki color, but it actually ended up being my favorite of the two! Niecy was also a pretty color, but it was WAY brighter in person than I thought it would be. It will end up being a toes only color for me, but that's okay. I was pleasantly surprised with their products, so I ended up continuing with the subscription!
