The polishes and cuticles cremes all come individually boxed so you could split them up as gifts. Preorder now and be sure to tune in Thursday night at 11:59 pm ET or 9 pm PT.

The new Brighter Is Better Oxygen Brightening Nail Treatment in Pink is a worldwide launch and it is super-sized. This nail treatment hides discoloration and brightens the look of the nails over time. It's optical brighteners conceal nail yellowing and discoloration. Lemon Fruit Extract physically brightens your nails and Hexanal hardens your nails to prevent splitting and peeling. Simply apply one coat over bare nails for a subtle look or apply two coats to amp up the brightness. 97% agreed that their nails looked instantly brighter. 90% agreed that their yellow stains were eliminated after 14 days and 87% agreed that their nails look younger and healthier after just 14 days.


The Super-Sized Take a Breather Oxygen Nail Treatment in Sheer Pink was in last year's TSV also. It's a powerful strengthening treatment that treats and protects your nails. The nutrient-rich formula includes nail boosting Hexanal, antiaging plant cells and a protective UV filter. It encourages strong, healthy growth with less peeling. The innovative Oxygen Technology improves oxygen permeability, allowing nail beds to breathe. The sheer pink tint gives the look of a classic manicure. It's so easy to apply since it's forgiving, can be applied very quickly, and it gives a clean, classic look that is perfect for any occasion. Here's what it looks like on my nails:

The Super Size Be Strong Oxygen Nail Therapy was in last year's TSV also. It can be used as a basecoat with one coat or by itself with two coats applied twice a week. It's a conditioning treatment that strengthens nails with five botanical oils and Oxygen Technology. Pistacia Resin strengthens and heals damaged nails while Hexanal hardens your nails. The botanical extracts fight breakage and the Oxygen Technology lets your nails breathe. 92% agreed the product made their nails look hard and shiny. 87% agreed it made their nails feel stronger after only 14 days and 85% agreed that the product made their nails look and feel healthier after 14 days.

Your Cuticles Look Thirsty Fast Absorbing Cuticle Creme is a supercharged creme that hydrates and heals dry, damaged cuticles. Honey soothes and heals dry, rough cuticles while the salicylic acid lifts away dead skin cells. In addition, shea butter moisturizes and Vitamin B5 helps ingredients penetrate quickly without a greasy residue. Apply a small amount onto each nail and the surrounding cuticle area. Apply as needed throughout the day to maintain softness and prevent dehydration. I love how it sinks into the skin so quickly with no greasiness. Shea butter is best at moisturizing, it makes the skin feel so soft, smooth and hydrated. I also like how it has a soft silicone tip for gentle application to your cuticles. This kit comes with two of these Cuticle Cremes. I suggest keeping the second one for later or gift one.

The Crystal Nail File is in a pretty lilac color. It's a fine grit glass nail file that is gentle on your nails. Simply file your nails in one direction to prevent splitting and damage. I cringe when I'm at the nail salon and I see them using a disposable sandpaper nail file. That type of nail file will tear and damage your nails, take this file with you to the salon. If you have never used a glass nail file, I highly recommend you purchase this one it makes all the difference! I will only use a glass nail file on my nails. This is a very important tool to help create beautiful nails that you can be proud of. I also keep one in my handbag.

The pretty cosmetic bag looks like coral fabric but has a plastic coating for easy cleaning. It has an easy to use zipper at the top. This one is the perfect size for traveling.

I highly recommend you give this super-sized nail kit a try. Their nail polish is 5 Free, so it's free of DBP, toluene, formaldehyde, resin, and camphor. It's sulfate free, paraben free and cruelty-free. Julep is my favorite brand of nail polish. You can see lots of my Julep manicures on this blog. Check out my Pinterest Nail Art Board and my Pinterest Manicure Board, the photos link to the matching blog post. I always have a long-lasting pretty manicure when I use Julep's polishes. You can also subscribe to their monthly beauty box and become a Maven too. I've been a Maven since the beginning when they first offered a subscription box. Mavens receive a discount, so a normally priced $14 nail polish is only $11.20 for Mavens along with free shipping, monthly secret store access,  mystery box and sale offerings.

  2. Thank you for your review Wendy! I have bought Julep in the past, and the biggest thing I love is how quickly the dry time is, it's instant! I always have nailpolish on my nails, and they are quite discolored because of it, so depending on the price of this kit, I will for sure give it a go.

    1. Yes, it's wonderful that Julep's polishes dry quickly. If you use Seche Vite's top coat it dries even faster. Make sure you use a quality basecoat to reduce the chance of yellowing. I use 1-2 coats. I've been told the details will be released early next week, stay tuned.

  3. I'm confused as to when to use each polish. Do you layer all 3? Use separately? I'm always tempted but like simplicity in nails if doing it myself. Thanks for your input!

    1. It depends what look you want. If you want the same look as my nails above, use 1 coat of Be Strong then 2 coats of Take a Breather and then one coat of your favorite top coat. Also, Be Strong can be used alone with 2 coats. Brighter Is Better can be used alone with one or two coats.

    2. Thanks! Your nails look great! You have the best nails to show off manicures, are you a hand model as well?

    3. Thank you so much, CStamp! I guess I'm a self employed hand model, LOL. I'm also the photographer.

    4. Hi Wendy - How does Julep compare to Perfect Formula Pink Gel Coat & Gel Coat Color? Thank you!

      Delete
    5. Hi Melissa! No comparison, Julep's is far superior. The only Perfect Formula product I like is the basecoat called Manicure Booster. I use that religiously, it keeps my nails from chipping 7-21 days. I bought a set of Perfect Formula on the Q and surprisingly, I dislike the rest of the Perfect Forumula products. I was so disappointed, didn't even like their nail file. Oh wait, I forgot I also like their cuticle oil but it is messy. I've been using Julep's Cuticle Creme instead, no mess.

  4. Great review Wendy! I'll be getting this for sure! I started using Julep Take a Breather just this year - it's the best! I do quite a bit of gardening, so I keep my nails short and I don't really give them too much attention. But with Julep, it's been a breeze! I'll be looking for the preorder link.

  5. my nails will never look like that. any nail polish i put on them fall off or looks bad with in two hours. glad it looks nice hopes it lasts for more than one day.

    1. Sure they can! It's all about the technique and the products you use. 1st remove any nail polish on your nails. Then wash your hands with a non moisturizing hand soap. Then use nail polish remover to remove any oils from your nails. Then apply 1-2 coats of Perfect Formula's Manicure Booster or Orly's Bonder. Then apply 2-3 coats of the nail polish depending on it's opacity. Then apply one coat of Seche Vite's Top Coat. Wait about 20 mins before touching anything and voila, you have a beautiful long lasting manicure. Apply another coat of Seche Vite in a couple of days or when you notice it dulling. Julep polishes on average last 10-14 days on my nails. I also recommend taking Solaray's Biotin supplement daily for long, strong nails.

  6. Hopefully I will be able to buy the "Brighter Is Better Oxygen Brightening Nail Treatment" as a stand-alone product (since I still have plenty of Be Strong and Take a Breather from the last TSV).

    1. You can purchase it in clear in a smaller size on their website, link above. The new pink super sized version is being launched in this kit.

      Delete
    2. I guess I'll troll eBay/Amazon in hopes ppl will split up their sets and sell off in pieces.

      Delete
    3. No luck there (yet) - only the std size in clear - so I caved in and bought the TSV on A/D. The items I don't need will become stocking stuffers.

      Delete
    4. Good idea since just one of the three nail treatments cost more than the entire kit. It works out to only $5.70 for each product in the 1st shipment! Bargain! They are individually boxed in lovely shiny silver boxes, perfect for gifting!

  7. Yay! I just ordered, thanks for information and thorough review! This will be great going into Winter. My nails and cuticles get worse in the cold weather!

  8. Thanks for your review Wendy! A couple of questions tho.... On the 2nd and 3rd shipments, is they'also a zip bag included? Also, for instance if the 2nd shipment includes cuticle oil, does that mean the cuticle cream from the 1st shipment is not included? What is replaced in the 3rd shipment? I've never tried Julep before so kind of excited about it! Thanks!

    1. The item that is being switched out is the cuticle creme (2nd shipment roll on cuticle oil, 3rd shipment nail polish remover pads) and the Take a Breather is sent in a different shade (2nd Sheer Ivory & 3rd Sheer Pearl). Everything else is the same except the bag is usually a different color. They usually show the 2nd and 3rd shipments on air, so be sure to tune in so you can see the bags. You can see the other nail polish colors on their website. Where have you been?! You've been missing out! Being a Julep Maven is so much fun. Join the party! I've been a subscriber since the beginning. As stated on qvc.com:
      "Each shipment includes one 0.74-fl oz Take a Breather Oxygen Nail Treatment, one 0.74-fl oz Be Strong Oxygen Nail Therapy, one 0.74-fl oz Brighter Is Better Oxygen Brightening Nail Treatment in Pink Glow, crystal nail file, and bag; shipments arrive approximately every five months for a total of three shipments
      1st shipment: two 0.5-oz Your Cuticles Look Thirsty Fast-Absorbing Cuticle Cremes and Take a Breather Oxygen Nail Treatment in Pink
      2nd shipment: 0.28-fl oz Roll with It Essential Cuticle Oil and Take a Breather Oxygen Nail Treatment in Sheer Ivory
      3rd shipment: 10 Clean Slate Polish Remover Pads and Take a Breather Oxygen Nail Treatment in Sheer Pearl"
