I don't do style or beauty posts and I wouldn't label myself as an overtly girly girl -- I don't wear a ton of make-up, do my hair every day, wear heels, dress to impress men... it's just not really me (if that's the honest you... go for it). The one girly thing I do regularly? Paint my nails. Silly and vain and I don't care in the least. I own dozens of nail polishes in numerous colors, but mostly of the darker variety. There are a few salmons & teals in my stash, but not many. More often than not, I'm found to be wearing black, dark brown, navy, plum, gray, brown, forest green... maybe tinged with glitter (I live on the edge).
Anyway, to get back on topic (does it really matter?) the only subscription box I take part in is Julep. For $20, every month I can choose from five different boxes containing 2-3 toxin-free polishes and other goodies and have them delivered right to my door. Everyone loves to get mail that doesnt involve having to pay off a utility bill, right? You can even choose to skip a box (as I did for January) if you don't love the theme for the month. However, I did go for the New Years Mystery box and I was quite pleased with what I got: six polishes, sunscreen, glitter pot, 3 polish remover pads, and 2 packs of hand scrub. Not bad for $20, right?
I'm not sure how long I'll stick it out for (as long as our budget permits?), but for the time being, I'm happy with it and it has me branching out ever so slightly.
And really... how lovely are the bottles they come in?
Do you subscribe to any monthly boxes? If so, which ones?
