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.

Breathable nail color—Color Treat is no ordinary nail polish.

Color description:
Black latex crème (*no latex in formula)

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, Acetyl Tributyl Citrate, Adipic Acid/Neopentyl Glycol/Trimellitic Anhydride Copolymer, Isopropyl Alcohol, Silica, Stearalkonium Bentonite, Acrylates Copolymer, Styrene/Acrylates Copolymer, Black 2 (CI 77266), Benzophenone-1, Trimethylpentanediyl Dibenzoate, 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.

    Cleopatra - Bombshell is rated 4.6667 out of 5 by 24.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great matte polish I really like how this polish is already matte and doesn't require a separate top coat. It's a fun, different spin on classic black polished nails. I would recommend smoothing your nails out first, this polish will show every ridge! =)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sexy and cool I already have enough black nail polish, but this latex finish sets this one apart completely. It is a unique, cool look that fits my personality perfectly. An added plus: it dries super fast! Now when I'm running late to go out (always) I don't have to worry about my nails, because they will be looking fab in minutes. I want a million more colors in this latex finish!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXACTLY As described, fast drying & great coverage The "Black Latex Creme" description is perfect for this product. The color looks exactly like black latex gloves, the kind you see at tattoo or tanning salons - but on your nails! Great coverage - however - since it does tend to dry fast, you want to make sure that your strokes are nice & even - or else streaks will appear. I always suggest a top coat & Essie makes a great "Matte" top coat so that the finish of Cleopatra won't be disturbed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the finish! I was a little weary of getting a black polish in my maven box, but I'm so glad I decided to get this one. The latex finish is perfect-I hope Julep puts out more polishes with this finish!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE IT This is the best black polish I've ever owned! The "latex" matte finish is amazing, the coverage is amazing, and it dries really fast! I don't recommend a top coat because it would ruin the finish, but it may not last as long. I put it on as soon as I got my Maven box, and it's just great. Perfect color for Halloween! I need to stock up on these...
