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:
Flapper red crème

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.

    Ingredients: Butyl Acetate, Ethyl Acetate, Nitrocellulose, Adipic Acid/Neopentyl Glycol/ Trimellitic Anhydride Copolymer, Acetyl Tributyl Citrate, Isopropyl Alcohol, Stearalkonium Bentonite, Acrylates Copolymer, Red 7 Lake (CI 15850), Styrene/Acrylates Copolymer, Silica, Benzophenone-1, Trimethylpentandiyl, Dibenzoate, Hexanal.

    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.

    Myrtle - Classic with a Twist is rated 4.875 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic red for all seasons I purchased the Just For Yule Trio, and applied the Myrtle on most of my nails, and then the evergreen, Emer, on my ring fingers for a Christmas-inspired accent. Myrtle requires 2-3 coats depending on your preference (and possibly which batch you end up with). The color is a sunny red that speaks to Christmas when paired with like colors/accessories, but makes good sense in any of the four seasons because of its versatility. It could look rosy in the wintertime, lively in the spring/summer, and warm and cozy in colder weather. It isn't limited by serious overtones or undertones. It wore very well for over two weeks. My nails grow very quickly, so I changed it at about that time. The shade reminds me of those 80's/90's nail salon posters in the best way possible. Growing up, I thought this shade was what women normally reached for when painting their nails. It also reminds me of the lipstick and polish from the 1950s -- you know, "that shade." Like a polish that a Dior fashion model would have applied...truly a classic.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bright tomato red creamy and thin v8 Before I purchase myrtle I spent a long time reading through all the reviews and photos and descriptions of the three or four bold red's on Julep. Oddly enough, all of the nuances I discovered with Myrtle are the same as the comments about Sheila. Most notable is the way it stains a sharpie-esque Red tint to the skin and nails when you try to remove it. And also, it is truly a ripe tomato V8 red; as with Sheila, it applies thinly and is a bit watery, but with 3 layers forms a cozy thick creme that is high gloss. It is nice. It isnt a sexy red, it is a "wise" red.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Red Ever! Gorgeous color, like a candy apple red. Love the formula b/c evens out pretty well. Does stain quite a bit, but it's expected from any red. Paired with Vivien and Hartleigh.
