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 formula, vegan-friendly 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, Polypropylene, Mica (CI 77019), Silica, Stearalkonium Bentonite, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Acrylates Copolymer, Styrene/Acrylates Copolymer, Benzophenone-1, Iron Oxide (CI 77499), Diacetone Alcohol, Manganese Violet (CI 77742), Trimethylpentanediyl Dibenzoate, Iron Oxide (CI 77491), Yellow 5 Lake (CI 19140), Phosphoric Acid, Red 6 Lake (CI 15850).

    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.

    Farrah - It Girl is rated 4.7143 out of 5 by 21.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, Trendy Color for the Office Opaque in one coat, Farrah has a faster dry time than other Julep polishes - which is nice considering it is not meant to be used with a top coat. Farrah dries to a gorgeous, satin finish. It leans more on the matte side but does not have a white cast like most matte polishes. I cannot comment on the wear duration as I will not be using it with top coat.  It is pretty, but my opinion is that it is more stone/grey than lilac, though it may seem so against my cool skintone. Under florescent office lighting you'll enjoy occasional flashes of silver microglitter. This color is most definitely business casual office friendly and is a nice trendy change from the usual office appropriate colors. Farrah leaves your nails pretty and completes a polished look without being a distraction.   Farrah is a must-have polish for anyone who occasionally needs to get their nails done in a hurry as it is non-staining, even without base coat.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very sweet and feminine I can not say enough good things about this polish! When the light is on my hands it is a lilac, but when not it is more of a grey/stone. LOVE the satin finish, dried practically instantly! I did need two coats to get the opacity I desired, although it was gorgeous with just one coat. You really won't regret this color, good for the office and for the party afterwards!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful color, sophisticated finish I change my polish every day, but have worn Farrah for three days now.  I absolutely love it and cannot say enough about the silk finish: it is so polished and sophisticated.  I bought every color that came in silk finish - Farrah, Abigail, and Noelle.  All three are gorgeous, but Farrah is such a fun purple that also passes as a somewhat neutral grayish color when needed, great for the office or just to wear around.  LOVE this color!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful finish! I honestly did not pay much attention to which colors I chose for my Maven box this month because most of them had another color similar to it within the box (if that makes sense?).. My main focus was to simply end up with three polishes that were different from each other. I opened my box and when I saw Farrah, I thought.. well it looks pretty boring (I have nearly 300 polishes, so that's a problem I have all too often!).. But I tried it, and while the Silk finish is beautiful, I put on my usual Seche Vite top coat, and it really brought out the subtle sparkle in this polish. I am wearing it now and love it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully Simplistic I've only been wearing this one day, but I'm already impressed. It has a lovely satin sheen, super fast dry time, and it hasn't chipped yet. I have paper thin nails and polish usually chips off the tips within a few hours. I was also able to set my 7 month old down to play, paint my nails and them be dry by the time he was ready to do something else. Normally, I have dents and smudges from trying to sneak in a polish in a race against his attention span. I can tell this is going to be one of my "go-to" polishes.
