For an extra neon pop try your neon layered over Eileen (add-on). View all of the add-on swatches here. 

American Beauty

Mindy: Porcelain pink sheer

I love this color! Nudes are really in this season and because this one is a little more opaque it looks super clean and chic. It makes my hands look pretty and well-manicured without being overdone. Definitely one of my Julep favorites. -Carly, Sneak Peek Maven

Bethany: Electric neon orange-pink cream

Boho Glam

Teresa: Opaque pink pearl frost

I felt very “retro Barbie” when I wore Teresa .  I thought it went with every outfit I wore— an easy, pretty go-to color -Molly, Sneak Peek Maven

Fiona: Electric neon lime cream


Ava: Ballet slipper pink frost

Bette and Ava are just as gorgeous on my fingers as they are in the bottle. I’ve been looking forward to trying a light pink and Ava didn’t disappoint.  Bette is a beautiful purple— dark enough to go with my winter wardrobe, but colorful enough to grab attention!  –Danya, Sneak Peek Maven

Bette: Electric neon purple cream

Classic with a Twist

Madison: Electric neon hot pink cream

Grace: Classic light pink sheer

I was worried it would be too pale, but it looks really pretty with my olive skin tone. I’d totally wear it to the office or on fancier occasions—it’s understated but elegant.  -Denise, Sneak Peek Maven

It Girl

Nina: Electric neon orangesicle cream

Nikki: Neon highlighter yellow cream

Amelia: Light champagne frost

Hand & Cuticle Stick

Peptides increase collagen production to reduce the appearance of wrinkles,giving skin a more youthful and healthy appearance. Also enriches the growthand strength of nails and helps to repair and restore cuticles. Vitamin C and E are nourishing anti-oxidants, and destroy free radicals thatdamage skin. Shea butter and sweet almond oil moisturize and repair dry, cracked anddamaged skin. Does not contain parabens or sulfates.

User reviews: 

The cuticle stick with shea butter is so soft and silky. After one application my hands felt really soft!  -Denise, Sneak Peek Maven 

This stuff smells amazing! I put it on all the time at work. I like reapplying during the day and then using my orange stick on my cuticles after they’ve had time to soften. It’s like Chapstick for your hands! -Carly, Sneak Peek Maven

    I love these colors!!! I agree, they should’ve waited a while though…gives me Spring fever just looking at them 🙂

  • amisha

    thank you for featuring these colors on people of different skin tones! this is so rare and truly appreciated!

  • Hillary H

    Wish I could get Ava with Madison instead because I could always add on Bette and Ava is the one I like most vs Grace. I wish it was mavens choice this month.

  • Amanda

    I love the colors this month but I don’t really like how they are paired. Overall, I think the add-ons are much nicer than the January Maven Colors. Looks like I’m skipping this month. :/

  • I can’t wait yay I’m so excited

  • Tiff

    I can’t wait to get Bette! I like a lot of the nudes as well. Thanks Julep for having such great gift kits in December!! I wanted them all. Next year I am going to save up ahead of time and order all of them 🙂

    I am a Boho Glam, but this month I just had to go with Classic with a Twist! Not only are the colors beautiful, they also share their names with my daughter, Madison Grace! Last month, one of my polishes was named Jordan, which is my son’s name! 🙂
    I’ve really been happy with my Maven boxes and rave about them to everyone I know!
