The most classic finish. Glossy, smooth, easy to apply.


Rich, flat color. No gloss or shine whatsoever.


A matte-metallic finish with texture and and micro-glitter.


Big, easy-to-see sparkle flakes. Glitter polish is textural, for smoother, use a top coat.


The same amount of sparkle as Glitter, but smaller flakes. Best for layering over color.


For nails that twinkle. A base of color and tiny flakes of shimmer mixed into one bottle.


Also known as pearlescent. Icy-toned shine, visible brush strokes.


Tiny rainbow colored flakes in the polish. Best seen in sunlight.


This finish glistens like the inside of a sea shell.


Also called duochrome. Color changes between two or more hues depending on the angle of looking at it.


Shiny, metal-looking finish. Most popular in golds, silvers, and coppers.


A layering polish. Creates a shattered texture look when put on top of another color.


A smooth, almost mirror-like metallic shine.

What it is:
Breakthrough Oxygen Technology powers this fast-drying, long-lasting nail polish to get nails healthy and more beautiful at the same time. Our proprietary 5-free, vegan-friendly formula also includes strengthening Hexanal and antioxidant green coffee extract. You'll never look at nail polish the same way again.

What it does:
  • Dries ultra fast & allows 30% more oxygen to permeate the nail bed than other nail polish
  • Reveals stronger, harder & more conditioned nails in just two weeks (reported by 95% of women in an independent trial)
  • Extends the life of your manicure or pedicure
  • Julep nail polish is 5-free and vegan-friendly. We steer clear of formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, toluene, DBP, camphor, and animal ingredients or byproducts.

    Butyl Acetate, Ethyl Acetate, Nitrocellulose, Adipic Acid/Neopentyl Glycol/Trimellitic Anhydride Copolymer, Acetyl Tributyl Citrate, Isopropyl Alcohol, Bis(Glycidoxphenyl)Propane/Bisaminomethylnorbornane Copolymer, Stearalkonium Bentonite, Mica (Ci 77019), Acrylates Copolymer, Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891), Styrene/Acrylates Copolymer, Benzophenone-1, Silica, Trimethylpentanediyl Dibenzoate, Aluminum Hydroxide, Red 28 (Ci 45410), Red 22 (Ci 45380), Hexanal, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Coffea Robusta Seed Extract.

    1. Start with a base coat. This protects your nails from damage and staining, and creates a smooth base for your nail polish.

    2. Apply nail polish in thin layers, and give each coat time to dry before applying the next. This helps your color dry evenly and quickly.

    3. To extend the life of your manicure, start each layer by sealing your free edges. Lightly brush nail polish across the edge and under the tip of each nail.

    4. To make your nail polish pop, apply a layer of white polish between the base coat and color.

    5. Finish with a top coat to protect your nail polish against chips. Reapply every couple of days to keep your manicure looking fresh.

    Caitlin - Classic with a Twist is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 35.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Barbie Pink It's quite sheer. I used two coats in the picture here. I found the formula nice, mainly because it goes on easy and no streaks. Fun color, just not what I was expecting.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty I'm surprised at the neg reviews. . . The color is SO pretty! It's like candy on my nails! I always use a high gloss topcoat, so maybe I didn't notice it was matte. . .I'll remember to check it out next time. Love the color, and love that it was a little translucent. (and used my normal 2 coats, no prob.)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful color! This is such a pretty color! There isn't as much gold in it as the picture shows, it is more of a solid hot pink.  This will be a great color for summer! The formula is thin like other Julep polishes and takes about 3 coats to make it even.  All in all, I am pleased.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from VIVID is the word! I thought I was agoing to hate this color. It is sooo much brighter than pictured. I really, really liked it on, though.  It's very flattering to my neutral/medium skin, and the color has an almost jelly-like quality to it that makes the bright pink lovely.  It definitely looks better with a top coat and with two coats, but worth the effort, in my opinion.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nice Color, disappointing finish! Both colors in my March box stated "shimmer", both were very flat and chalky. Two coats of topcoat helped, but overall dissatisfied.
