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

Color description:
Smoky indigo 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.

    Butyl Acetate, Ethyl Acetate, Nitrocellulose, Adipic Acid/Neopentyl Glycol/Trimellitic Anhydride Copolymer, Acetyl Tributyl Citrate, Isopropyl Alcohol, Stearalkonium Bentonite, Acrylates Copolymer, Styrene/Acrylates Copolymer, Ultramarines (CI 77003), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Benzophenone-1, Silica, Red 34 Lake (CI 15880), Ferric Ammonium Ferrocyanide (CI 77510), 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous I got this as part of my February Maven selection.  I'm so glad I did.  The color is a deep, glossy, beautiful indigo creme which is true to the examples Julep has posted on the site. Though I must say that even the pictures just don't do it justice.  It's so classy looking.  I applied two coats for the best effect, but could've gotten away with just one.  It went on smoothly with no streaking.  If you're a fan of blue and violet, but can't decide between the two or you simply like dark and dramatic colors, this is the polish for you.  It's my new fave and I highly recommend it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deep shade of purple I received this in my maven box today and had to put it on right away.  It's a deep shade of purple with blue undertones.  It covered in just one coat and I love that!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A gorgeous shade of purple This is a true purple shade and very appropriate! Not a crazy shade, very wearable for work. Two coats would be optimal.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! They should rename this color "obsessed" because that's exactly how I feel about it. I normally wouldn't have picked this color on my own, however received it in my February Maven box and absolutely love it!! I normally switched colors daily but have used this one for the last few days and have received a ton of compliments on it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great nail polish I got this in my February maven box and couldn't wait to put it on! It's looks purple and blue kind of like a navy purple. It only took two coats to make my nails look perfect :). It also dries really quickly,
