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, Isopropyl Alcohol, Adipic Acid/Neopentyl Glycol/Trimellitic Anhydride Copolymer, Acetyl Tributyl Citrate, Isopropyl Alcohol, Stearalkonium Bentonite, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Acrylates Copolymer, Yellow 5 Lake (CI 19140), Styrene/Acrylates Copolymer, Benzophenone-1, Silica, Trimethylpentanediyl Dibenzoate, Hexanal, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Red 6 Lake (CI 15850), 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.

    Catrina - It Girl is rated 3.4706 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fall Yellow! I love this yellow color, it's not too spring-y and bright, so its great for fall. You get full coverage in 2 coats. I did *not* have this polish stain my nails, and I applied it without a base coat.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Coverage - Perfect Yellow for Fall This fall my nails will match the yellow leaves in the trees.  Great coverage and color payoff from one coat.  That is tough to find in a yellow.  Will be great with fall colors and plays very well with Marjorie and Nellie from August garden party.  Cream color, full coverage, lots of shine - happy yellow sunshine for my nails.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It actually works! Yellow is not a color I've been able to pull off, until I got this in my Maven box. Somehow the brightness of it works even with my complexion, and it's wonderfully cheerful. Two coats was about right, and I haven't had any problems with staining or chalky texture.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Call me crazy, but I like Catrina! I read all the other reviews and ordered with hesitation, because I was looking for a yellow to add to my collection and this looked like a good one. I saw a lot of "great fall yellow" reviews, but I think it works just fine for summer and will do great year round. Generally I like the thicker Julep formulas as I find them easier to apply than runnier formulas from other manufacturers, but Catrina seemed a lot thicker than usual, so I see it being difficult to use for nail art and that is the only reason I give it four stars.
