Nail Files: Lea Michele’s 10 Best Manicure Moments

Nail Files: Lea Michele’s 10 Best Manicure Moments

Happy birthday, Lea Michele! The Broadway turned television star turns 28 today, and not only is she in possession of one the world's most gorgeous voices---but she's got a great set of digits, too. (We're talking about her fingers, not her phone number.) The Glee star always turns up on the red carpet looking stunning, and her nails are an integral element of her perpetually polished look. If we had to guess from her penchant for nudes and light pinks, we'd say Lea is a Classic with a Twist, but... Read More

A Night with Blue Nile: Bloggers, Baubles & Beautiful Manis

Diamonds are forever, manicures are temporary... and combined, they're the ultimate equation for hand happiness! That's what we learned at this recent event hosted by our friends at Blue Nile, along with lots of other helpful (and daydream-inducing) facts about how to pick out a diamond. We were there to treat some of our favorite local bloggers to fresh manicures---the better for them to try on those beautiful Blue Nile baubles! It was a fun night of learning about (and lusting over) loads of gorgeous... Read More

September Color Inspiration: Meet Quinn, Who Just Got Her First Pedicure!

September Color Inspiration: Meet Quinn, Who Just Got Her First Pedicure!

WARNING: Prepare for cuteness overload. One of the many wonderful perks of working for Julep is being able to help name our polishes. Many Julep polishes are named after famous women who inspire us (like this month's Birthstone namesake, Claudia Schiffer), but many are also named after the important women in our lives: our mothers, daughters, sisters, friends, mentors, and---in this case---nieces! Quinn is my one-year-old niece, and I couldn't wait to name a Julep polish after her. I know my aunt... Read More

These days it seems like we have a holiday for everything. And guess what? Today is no exception: it's National Cherry Popsicle Day! Popsicles just scream summer.

Happy Birthday, Claudia!

Happy Birthday, Claudia!

When a girl here at Julep HQ mentioned she didn't know who Claudia Schiffer is, I nearly tipped right out of my desk chair. How could anyone forget this face? But then I realized Claudia Schiffer and that face (the face of Guess!) harkened way back to 1990, the year my colleague turned two. No wonder she doesn't remember. So what better way to honor the namesake of our August peridot birthstone nail polish than a quick retrospective—or education, as it may be—of the woman who sold about... Read More

Nail Art: Endless Summer

All good things must come to an end... but not summer! Not yet, anyway.

This is a great look to sport for all your late summer outings, whether it's the final musical festival of the season or a margarita happy hour with friends... Read More

NOTD: Hot Studded

NOTD: Hot Studded

I never met a red nail polish I didn't love. But it takes a special red for me to declare my lurve. Or, more accurately, my LURVE, because that kind of fervent, nonsensical enthusiasm should only be expressed in all-caps. So: just like Asia here, I too am currently wearing and LURVING Tamara (Boho Glam), the lipstick red crème from our July Poolside Collection. But what I am not wearing are those amazing gold studs that Asia has added to her manicure, effectively taking Tamara's electric, jumps-off-your-nails... Read More

Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” Video Only Needs One Thing…

Besides confidence, nail polish is the best accessory for when you want to try out a new style---and in her new music video, "Shake It Off," it's clear that Taylor Swift has that first part down. But the nail polish? Not so much! First, just in case you've been living under a wifi-less rock for the last 2 days, here's the video: For all the different looks Taylor tries out as she travels through this strange Land of Dance that serves as the video's setting, I could only pick out one shade of polish...
