ThisThatBeauty Reviews: Julep Nail Polish

Is there ever a better season for nail polishes than Summer?  Open-toed sandals, sleeveless tops – it’s a full on invitation to parade fingers and toes decorated in your current crush du jour.  Being the beauty chameleon that I am, my nail wardrobe runs the gamut and I often find myself making decisions based on a simple game of eeny-meeny-miney-mo.  One of my favorite brands that has become a regular on my nail polish roster is Julep.  What began as a small boutique nail salon in Seattle, Julep has now become a national brand thanks to their recent debut in Sephora stores across the nation.  Alternatively to their in-store presence, Julep also offers a subscription program called Julep Maven, where for 19.99/month, you receive a goody box chock full of their newest shades and other “cutting-edge beauty products”.  With their adorable rectangular packaging and abundant color range, this line not only gives great face (or nail) but dries faster and wears better than most other brands I use.  Here are a few of my favorite brights….

With so many great color options and such easy availability, your nails have no excuse but to be fabulous, polished and summer ready.

Julep polishes are available at Julep or Sephora and retail for 14.00.

Maree About Maree

Fueled by her love (obsession) of all things beauty, Maree Sye writes from the viewpoint of the everyday woman. Recently transitioning from a decade long career as an executive in the cosmetics industry to her current role as sales manager for a baby goods company, Maree has turned her insider information into a spectator sport. Choosing products appropriate for the office, understanding how to transition from day to night, and constantly seeking the elusive weekend “makeup, no makeup” look are the issues that keep Maree up at night. When she is not testing out products and blabbing about them on This That Beauty, you can find her blabbings on A Little Bit etc, her personal fashion/beauty blog – it’s a little bit fashion, a little bit beauty and a whole lot of sass. Maree currently resides in Bergdorf Goodman (or her apt in Midtown Manhattan), spends her summers vacationing at Sephora (or the dog park near her apt), and dreams of one day amassing so much makeup, that she will need a bigger home. Follow Maree on twitter @alittlebitetc or follow her down the street if you like – most likely she is on her way to pick up a new lipstick.
