New Release: Julep — December 2018 “Festive Delights”

Collection: Julep 2018 December “Festive Delights”

Julep’s December 2018 collection consists of six new shades of jewel box-worthy nail colors, plus the return of Light on Your Lips Full-Coverage Crème Lipstick (3.6 g for $22 / $17.60 Maven), three of which are brand new () shades: After Hours, Chit Chat, Strut, Pirouette*, and Muse*.

From Julep:

Like a cool rush of frosty winter air, this month’s nail collection is the refreshing update your party look has been longing for. The glistening cool tones and jewel-inspired dark hues exude arctic-chic with every toast and every shimmy on the dance floor.

Mix a couple of this month’s cool polish shades for a fierce & frozen palette.

Here are the six polishes for December, plus this month’s shade of Intention polish and some photos of Julep’s Holiday Sets!

I’m passing on all of these for now (though I’m not entirely sure why Sloan is calling to me a little bit—it’s so not my thing!) but I am picking up my Maven Box for December (the aforementioned After Hours lipstick, plus two older Julep shades in Bradley and Cozette) and I am throwing a few holiday sets in with my order, as well. I can’t resist a holiday set with exclusive shades…

The new Holiday sets with new shades include (and AFAIK, not available as singles):

Hypnotic Frenzy
This set contains 3 mL minis. Agatha (gilded bronze multidimensional glitter), O’Neill (sleek copper chrome), Vinsy (blooming pink multidimensional glitter), Brita (frozen raspberry chrome), Kirra (icy purple multidimensional glitter), Maryann (lilac mauve shimmer)
Avant Garden
This set contains full sized 8 mL polishes. Bristol (lavender ice metallic), Tammy (grape gumdrop iridescent glitter), Binta (midnight violet microshimmer)
Surreal World
This set contains full sized 8 mL polishes. Azalea (pink sunrise holographic glitter; a mini from last holiday, here in full size), Bri (purple ember holographic shimmer)

For Black Friday, these sets are currently available at quite tempting prices! There are also some sets from last holiday season, and the usual #Coveted set for a collection of minis from 2018 releases.

Julep Mavens will be able to customize their December boxes starting yesterday, from November 20–24.

Don’t forget that if you sign up for a Julep Maven box (referral link) and use the code POLISHGIFT, you’ll get a free 12-piece Nail Color set!

I did and I loved the colors I got (they’re not always the same).


Happy shopping! And Happy Thanksgiving to all the U.S. readers! 🍂🦃
