The IFB Recap continues. And it also continues this week’s theme of painting. I’ve mentioned there were some killer sponsors at the conference, like Lockerz and Boy Meets Girl
was equally as amazing. A nail care company based in Seattle, Julep came to the IFB conference and set up a pop-up manicure station. The offered some amazing colors, so of course I waited in line. Who can say no to a free manicure? (Keep reading, because you can get a free set of polishes yourself!)
Certainly not me . . .
The brand has a really great philosophy, one that appealed to the way I view life and art:
It’s (Julep) about the shared discovery of things that make us look good and feel great. For us, nail color is at the intersection of beauty and fashion. It allows grown-up women to play, to step out of their comfort zone a little bit and experiment with color and style. It helps to unleash the inner artist in all of us.
Other major pluses? Julep nail polish has some serious staying power. After my manicure, I had no visible chips or cracks for 5 days. That’s impressive for me, since I do all kinds of things that sabotage a manicure. All of the polishes are free of the nasty carcinogens formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, toluene and DBP – found in many commercial polishes available. But, in my opinion, the best part of Julep is in the fine print: all of their products are MADE IN AMERICA. I love companies that keep our dollars domestic!
offers a subscription-based service called Julep Maven
. Each month, new polish colors and maintenance products are offered. You’re not committed to purchasing every month and can cancel at any time. The coolest part? Julep is allowing me to give away a free nail package to one of my lucky readers!
