Well technically, my nails aren’t nekkid. I’m trying out Julep’s “Oxygen Nail Treatment”.

It’s no surprise that since becoming a Julep Maven last November, my nails have been seeing a lot of action. All this painting and de-glitterfying is starting to take a toll on the health of my nails. I’m not able to let me nails grow nearly as long as I used to…they have been peeling and cracking. Oxygen Nail Treatment is supposed to fix that – read the description from Julep’s site:


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. Advanced plant stem cell complex provides anti-aging benefits, while ground-breaking oxygen technology forms a nonocclusive film on the nail, proving resistant to water penetration and improving the permeability to oxygen. Results are nails that are structurally stronger, and less prone to breakage and splitting.

I was up late watching the season finale of The Walking Dead last night, so I only put one coat after I saw how long the first coat was tacky. 2-3 coats probably would have camouflaged my yellowed nails more completely, but I can’t complain about how smooth and shiny they are.

Since I got my April Julep Box today, I don’t imagine I’ll be able to NOT paint my nails tomorrow, but I’m hoping my nails will be somewhat healthier by then…

    Take a biotin supplement. I take 10,000 mcg a day. Plus I still take a prenatal vitamin. It’s great for your hair and nails.

      You have a point – my nails were never better than when I was pregnant. I had bought a bottle after I had Lily, so I would keep on taking them…and I just threw them out because they expired several years ago. I need to buy more!

    Wow 10,000 mcg. I have been wondering what the max is with biotin. I have liked the Hair and Nails formula with biotin and folic acid.
