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:
Dusty pink mauve crème

Created to complement one of the shawls Malala wore during a speech to the United Nations, and which had previously belonged to slain Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto.

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, Manganese Violet (CI 77742), Styrene/Acrylates Copolymer, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Silica, Benzophenone-1, Trimethylpentanediyl Dibenzoate, Iron Oxide (CI 77491), Hexanal, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Black 2 (CI 77266), 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.

    Malala - Classic with a Twist is rated 4.85 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not exactly the color shown Like the other reviewers, I was very excited about this since it is for such a great cause and it looked like a very pretty color.  However, the bottle I received in much darker than the swatches and turned out to be very, very similar to "Joy" that I had received in a previous maven box.  I am actually happy with the color on- a lot more purple than the pink I was expecting, but was a little disappointed that it wasn't what I had expected.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from More purple than pink I bought this polish because of the charity it goes to, and even though the color didn't turn out exactly like the swatch, I'm still happy with it. It did take me about 3 coats to get a nice, even color but it's still pretty neutral. (Please note I used the flash in the picture and I also have on the Julep Polymer Topcoat)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great color, great cause as everyone said, the proceeds go to something worthwhile, which in itself is worth buying... that alone isn't enough though, for me, because i could just donate the money and not get something i don't like/want/use...so the product itself is just as important... the color is great on the website, though it looks more neutral (warmer), and the color it looks on my nails is a bit more lavender under indoor lighting, which isn't a big deal for me, except i've been looking for a basic neutral color, so i'll continue the hunt...aside from that, the consistency is great, and it's lasting well with the julep polymer top coat... overall, no complaints!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Polish Yet! I wish I could rate this 6 stars. I can't say enough about this polish! I love neutral colors and this is a beautiful neutral while still being fun! The dusty purple color compliments my fair skin well and matches most of my outfits. The polish itself is well made and easy to work with. In addition, Malala's charity is one I admire! Buying this polish can count as my one good deed that day!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Perfect Replacement, and more! I have been searching for a polish to replace my favorite color by Deborah Lippman, Modern Love (since it always peels right off), and Malala is even better than what I was expecting! It is a little darker and more purple than pictured, but it is a great almost-neutral shade. It looks phenomenal even on shorter nails. And if you wanted it a little pinker, the coverage of this polish could get you there with one coat if you apply it just a little bit thicker. I also absolutely love the specificity of the inspiration for this color and that the proceeds go to such a great cause. It's so inspiring to see a women-owned company supporting a movement that seeks to empower girls around the world! Thanks, Julep! <3
