The February Maven product is... Oxygen Nail Treatment Complete nail care, and make-up all in one bottle. Made with a patented Hexanal formulation, nails are restructured to a stronger, thicker, and smoother condition in just one stroke.
So did you see this and still not quite understand EXACTLY what it was? Was it a base coat? A nail treatment? How do you use it? Well I sure did! So I called up Mary (seriously, how WONDERFUL is that woman?! I hope Julep appreciates how wonderful she is!) and asked her for details.
The Oxygen Nail Treatment is a pale pink colour. It can be worn alone as a subtle polish, or as a base coat under your favourite colour. If you use it, you would NOT use your Julep Nail Therapy or other base coat. I have been using Julep Nail Therapy exclusively since I first tried it, about a year before the maven program started. For about two and a half years I have steadily REFUSED to use or even try any other base coats. I found my holy grail. After years and years of struggling with chipping and breaking and peeling nails I had my little bottle of magic. So why try anything else? So I am now torn. Do I try this knowing that Julep has been known to make some kick ass products (the only acetone free polish remover on the planet that WORKS as one example)? Or do I stick with my little bottle of what works and be done with it? Hmmm.......
But yes, for those of you who were unsure, this is a strengthening product that can be used alone and give your nails a subtle colour while strengthening and improving the nail structure or as a base coat (so similar to the Nail Therapy) but it has a light pink shade that makes it very much a stand alone all in one product if you so choose.
Are you excited for it?
