I love changing my polish each week to reflect my moods and the seasons.
Julep polish has just become available for purchase. Which I think is great — now more people can be introduced to this innovative polish line. I love the colors and the smaller bottles since nail polish tends to dry out before it runs out at my house.
Founded by beauty expert Jane Park, Julep celebrates friendship, expression, and connection through color. Applying her professional beauty advice—often featured in leading fashion magazines—Park developed a nail polish collection with colors named after inspirational, vibrant women. Julep’s fast-drying, long-lasting, non-toxic formula is paired with a high-performance, professional brush. Additionally, the brand donates a portion of their proceeds to organizations that support and empower women.
My favorite shade right now is Heather ($14 USD), a platinum greige with a metallic glow. It is neutral so goes with everything and the metallic color is so cool — I get lots of compliments when I wear it. I only need 2 coats and applies smoothly.
