COST: $18 or $14 for Mavens
THE SKINNY: Julep touts its new Oxygen Nail Treatment as "makeup for nails."
I think the slogan is silly but the product works pretty well. You use it instead of your regular polish to help build and grow nails. It has a pale pink tint that has shine and looks natural.
The catch? You need to use it alone. No topcoat, no basecoat and no polish. (Yes, this can be tough.)
But the results are worth it. My nails do seem stronger and they have been less likely to break. I was also experiencing some nail dryness and chalkiness. The Oxygen treatment has really helped there too.
The only downside is that it is not a basecoat treatment. Maybe Julep will alter the formula later.
KEEP OR TOSS: Keep. This was a great addition to a recent Maven box.
