julep updated review featuring jamberry

Last month I posted a not so nice review on Julep nail polish.  I received my first box from them in May, and was not impressed.  At all.  The polish went on incredibly clumpy && started chipping the next day [using Seche Vite base and top coat].  I've mentioned before that I have over 300 bottles of nail polish, so I know what I'm talking about, aha.  Oh.  And that nail technician license I have also qualifies me a little ;]

Well in total [since I keep forgetting to cancel my subscription boxes...] I've received about 7 bottles from them now, with 2 more boxes on the way.  I finally decided to sit down and test out some other shades.  I loved them!  I honestly think I just got a bad bottle on my first shade.  Which is a great relief since I have so many bottles now!  So Julep, I'm sorry... aha!  I take it back... Maybe I should tell them about the bad bottle?  Meh.  The shade that I had bad luck with is the shade I'm wearing in these pictures, Kam.  It's a beautiful creamy mint color.  The formula was just awful though.  I can now say that I'm a satisfied customer when it comes to the other shades.

I also was given the chance to tryyy out jamberry nail wraps.  Heather Ruiz over at "No Polish, No Problem!" sent me some samples of jamberry nail wraps.  I had never tried jamberry before.  My previous experience with nail "polish" wraps was abysmal to say the least.  It was truly a hot mess.  I was pleasantly surprised with jamberry though.  It went on very easily and lasted several weeks [until I took it off myself].  You can also use these on your toes, which I think is absolutely adorable && I plan on doing!  Hop on over to her blog and check out the jamberry products.  The company is also introducing its own monthly subscription box!

  1. I haven't used Jamberry. I had this gel polish phase and I'm currently "resting" because my nails became brittle. It'll take a couple of weeks before I get back to using nail polish .... but I will check with my nail artisans if they have Jamberry next time I have my nails done.

    1. From what I can tell through my experience, the Jamberry wraps wouldn't do any damage to your nails at all. It's like a long lasting sticker, if that makes sense. Left no sign that I ever had it on when I took it off.

    1. That's where Jamberry would be very helpful. You don't have to polish anything. Just apply a "sticker" and it stays for 2 weeks. Very neat.

  5. It's a shame that your first bottle from Julep was bad but at least it has sorted itself out. From what I've read on other blogs they have excellent customer service. I really don't do my nails these days so I've not tried either product.

    1. Yeah my first bottle from Julep was baaaad. I'm glad that I tried a different shade, or I would've probably just thrown the bottles away.

    1. My nail art is usually bad too. If I have to do it free hand, it's a mess. My eye problems make it hard for me to even polish my nail without making a mess.

  10. I received a Jamberry sample but it was one (what looked like) LITTLE strip. I did not bother to use it because I didn't know how I would work that one strip into my mani. Yours nails look great.

    1. Yeah.... the samples are hard to work with. Most of the samples I received wouldn't even fit on my pinky nail, and I have small hands.

  17. I think it's great that you gave them a second chance. Sometimes it is just one bad apple that spoils things. You managed to look past it and realize they have some great stuff. Thanks for sharing.

  20. Pretty shade of nail polish perfect for summer. It's one of a kind shade that I think doesn't suit all skin tone.

  24. I get Julep monthly and my first box was not the advertised combo. I reached out to them and they shipped me the correct set at no charge. Some colors are easy to apply and some are clumpy/heavy, so I understand the point you made. That said, I'm enjoying their impressive range of colors.
