What makes Julep Nail Polish so great?
Our professional chip-resistant formulation is fast drying and highly pigmented. It is a fun way to make the season’s latest shades accessible to everyone. And because we’ve tested our trend-setting toxin-free nail polish 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.

Julep nail polish is 5-free and vegan-friendly. We steer clear of formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, toluene, DBP, camphor, and animal ingredients or byproducts.

  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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great color This has been my go-to color for several months. I'm so sorry to see it go. Its a thick creme finish that goes on evenly with only one coat. I love pairing this color with Sienna for some added drama. I plan to stock up before this is completely sold out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In love with this hot red! This is definitely one of my favorite colors!  It applies on well, and feels slightly thinner than most creme finish polishes.  The finish is a beautiful, medium-bright, red shine that I completely adore!  A definite style go-to to amp up any style.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from bold color, sheer finish I love the intense color. The formula is thin and almost sheer with ton of pigment. It does tend to run a bit though and I worried that with all the pigment it would stain my fingers, but it cleaned up nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from must have! I just received this color as an add on to my box and I am completely in love with it. I catch myself staring at my nails constantly when I wear it. It has a beautiful bright red finish and when topped with a top coat it is even better. I plan on stocking up with this color that has become my favorite thus far! I thank my best friend Stephanie for introducing me to Julep and recommended this color to her as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not Your Mom's Red Nail Polish I brought this last month and I'm so glad I did. This is definitely not your mom's red nail polish. I has a very nice and bright smooth finish. I didn't really need to do more than one coat since it covered so well.
