Take a Breather - Sheer Shimmer is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Subtle shimmer This treatment has a light but noticeable shimmer after two coats. It seems to have made my nails stronger, but I can't really say. I did notice that after about 4 days, there were spots of my nails where the treatment had kind of peeled off almost. I will definitely use in the future on my rest days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As if you're wearing nothing I just ordered this from Julep and absolutely love it. Super light but, pretty and my nails feel like I have nothing on them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this stuff! It's so rare to find something that's pretty and good for you but Take A Breather offers both! I saw an immediate change to my nail peeling.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tricky to apply I like to go a few days between manicures, but prefer the look of having polish on than natural, so I was immediately drawn to this polish. It is a little streaky when applying and chips easily, so it's ok, but not a winner in my book.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible! I bought this for the holidays have used it several times and it won't stay on! The original sheer ivory stays on for weeks. Very disappointed.
