The most classic finish. Glossy, smooth, easy to apply.


Rich, flat color. No gloss or shine whatsoever.

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, Silica, N-Butyl Alcohol, Red 34 Lake (CI 15880), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Styrene/Acrylates Copolymer, Mica (CI 77019), Ferric Ammonium Ferrocyanide (CI 77510), Benzophenone-1, Hexanal, Hexlianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Coffea Robusta Seed Extract, Tin Oxide, Violet 2 (CI 60725).

    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 Great Color, DOES match swatches I absolutely love this dark purple. I was a little nervous about buying it, because a lot of the reviews said it was too dark. I found the color to match quite well with the swatches shown however. In addition to being a great color, this color has one of the best formulas I've come across---it goes on smooth and with pretty decent coverage in one coat, and perfect with two.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very, Very Dark I was pretty excited to see this color in my September box. In the bottle, it appeared like a purple wine color, which is what I've been looking for the autumn season. When I applied it, though, I was so disappointed. It is so dark, as another reviewer stated, that it appears nearly black. No purple to be seen. It is still a nice color for autumn still and I will still use it but if you're looking for a purpley-wine color like I was, this isn't it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Deep Dark Purple Color doesn't go on the same as in the photographs online, I'm assuming it just doesn't photograph well. It's a beautiful, dark purple with what looks like an almost black base color. Goes on perfectly, easy to paint with and not too thick like Julep cremes seem to tend towards. I'm very excited for fall to come so I can start wearing this color.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fall for Fall! This came in my recent duo of colors and I can't wait to use it in the fall.  I think it's a bit too dark for now but will be perfect for the change in seasons.  I love to change colors as the weather changes.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful color for fall This color came in my September box. It goes on smoothly and only one coat is necessary, however, it looks almost black instead of purple. I will definitely still wear this color; it's perfect for fall.
