For All Nail Polish Lovers Out There…
This is for you! Julep is an company that handpicks & ships you new and different colors of nail polish via a monthly subscription to your front door based on your style profile.
When you first go to Julep’s website, you’re asked nine style questions in a minute-long quiz to figure out what products are the best fit for you. Once complete, you’re assigned one of five style profiles: American Beauty, Boho Glam, Bombshell, Classic With A Twist, or It Girl.
Cool – right? The way we all shop and buy online is always evolving, and Julep is one of those companies pushing the envelope.
And For All Bloggers Out There…
Let’s do a roll-call! Julep just announced launched a ‘VIP Blogger Program’ and are currently actively enrolling new beauty, fashion and nail gurus.
Interested? We were fortunate enough to sit down and talk with Heather, an employee and a social media rockstar working at Julep on their social media team. Read on to learn a little about the company and more info on their new program below.
First – Tell Us A Little Bit About Yourself!
Hi! My name is Heather Harrington – I am the Social Marketing Manager at Julep. I get the pleasure of interacting daily with our fans on all social channels, including Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube, Tumblr and Instagram. I am also the person behind our “Nail of the Day“, working with technicians and creating ideas that are not only intriguing & socially shareable, but also are looks that our fans can do on their nails.
My favorite thing about my position at Julep is getting to experience the impact we have on women’s lives, being able to make someones day by the pop of color on their nails and supporting women to step outside their comfort zone and try new things.
Can You Tell Us About Julep & What It Means To Become A Julep Maven?
At Julep we believe that beauty is about connection, not competition. With that being said, our goal is to create a community where women of all ages can come, chat and seek advice about beauty, fashion and nails. We want to be there when our fans have questions about what color to wear on their wedding day, how to apply nail color and how to achieve the latest nail art trend.
The Julep Maven program launched August 2011, we are quickly approaching our first year! Becoming a Julep Maven gives you exclusive access to COLOR. Each month we handpick trendsetting new nail colors, cult faves and cutting-edge beauty products that are just right for you. Commitment shy? No problem. YOU decide how often to receive your Julep Maven box, and you can cancel at any time.
Feel free to visit us and take our interactive quiz to discover your style profile. It’s fun & easy.
So What’s Julep’s ‘Secret Sauce’? What Makes You Special?
Julep Nail Color is “4-free” and does not contain formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, toluene, or DBP. Our professional chip-resistant formulation is delivered via our exclusive flat brush with micro-frayed brush hairs. Julep nail color is a fun way to make the season’s latest shades accessible to everyone. And because we’ve tested our trend-setting toxin-free colors and products in over 100,000 manicures and pedicures in our parlors, we have a good idea of what works and what our clients love.

We look to our bloggers to provide product reviews, honest feedback and content syndication, etc. Bloggers that catch our eye have a strong social presence online (Facebook, Twitter) and are actively engaging with their audience.
