Color description:
Pantone® 2014 Color of the Year, a radiant orchid 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, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Styrene/Acrylates Copolymer, Benzophenone-1, Silica, Ultramarines (CI 77007), Trimethylpentanediyl Dibenzoate, Red 34 Lake (CI 15880), 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.

    Rae - Classic with a Twist is rated 4.2857 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rae I purchased this when it was a $4.99 add on to the March Maven Box, this was a popular color with a limited supply. I have what I consider a very pale complexion, and I feel like this color is very appealing and would look beautiful on any skin tone. I would suggest thinly applying layers of this color to ensure that all nails look similar. I do enjoy the purple tones, another favorite of mine is Julep's Billie Jean. I found that with this nail color, if you're not careful the color will become darker if you apply it too thickly. So for consistency, apply sparingly. I feel like I will get a lot of use out of this color, and look forward to wearing it more.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Darker than expected from pictures I got this in my Maven box as an add-on. When I painted my nails, the color was considerably the darker color on the nails. Still a very beautiful color, just not a pinkish-purple but a mauve-purple. It is a two coat polish but it seemed a bit on the thick side.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pinky Purple Usually a shade like this isn't one that really stands out to me, but everyone was raving about it, so I tried my sisters. It's gorgeous. I liked it so much, I bought my own. It's a nice pinky purple. I can totally see why it's the Pantone color of the year. It went on smooth and evenly.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The application was Great! Rae was an add on to my March box, which I am so glad I did. I did not know it was the color of the year. The color looks different on me than it does in the pictures, but then again it could be my eyesight.lol

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great color I added this color to my March box and really like the color, although it looks nothing like the color that is on the website.  It's a very vibrant purple shade that I like quite a bit, but if you're anticipating the pink-ish shade that's on the website you might be disappointed.
