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.

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, Yellow 5 Lake (CI 19140), Benzophenone-1, Silica, Trimethylpentanediyl Dibenzoate, Black 2 (CI 77266), Red 6 Lake (CI 15850), Hexanal, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Coffea Robusta Seed Extract, Ferric Ammonium Ferrocyanide (CI 77510).

    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 Unexpected love! When I first saw the bottle I went eww, then curiosity got the better of me and I put it on. It's a rich tan/brown that shows hints of army green mostly when I wear something in that color or in the right light. It is a little goopy and takes patience to apply evenly and without air bubbles. Looks great with my pale skin and a wonderful neutral for fall.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Coffee with extra cream I was looking for a brown toned polish and I love it. It is a khaki tone next to my fair skin. Got fine coverage and color in one coat. Very polished looking, but still different. It was one of my favorites this month. On me it looks like coffee with extra cream.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not as shown but still love The color is more of a gray/green than what it looks like online, but it is still very pretty. I put in on last night, with no issues with the consistency, and it looked great when I went out last night and still does today. It seems to change colors a little bit based on what you are wearing, but it goes well with browns/tans, gray, and black. It's a solid neutral color that looks chic.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Love the color but HATE the consistency Just got this new color the other day. I love the color but the formula is horribly thick and goopy. The coverage is good but it was such a pain to get on. I really wish the consistency was thinner!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A surprisingly rich, neutral tone This is a great fall neutral, sort of a mid-range warm gray. You wouldn't think of any shade of gray as a rich tone, but there's something about this color that I think is really lush and beautiful. I thought the formula was good, not too thick or thin and fairly self-levelling, but I did have a hard time with over-applying and ending up with air bubbles. You'll probably want to use care to apply thinnish coats.
