Sandal season is here, so it’s time to get a fabulous pedicure. This season, get into bright colors to show off your tootsie.
Julep’s new Summer Collection features three fabulous colors:
- Niecy is the perfect pink to bring out on a bright sunny day
- Blake screams buttery, delicious bliss (without the calories)
- Jaime is an electrifying and sandal-wearing blue
If you don’t think yellow is a great nail color, think again. Lady Gaga and Willow Smith were both recently spotted wearing the shade. All Julep products feature 3-Free formula, meaning they do not contain carcinogens such as formaldehyde, toluene and DBP.
Julep Founder Jane Park offers this summer nail tip: “When you have to dash out the door, especially after a DIY pedicure, you can ‘set’ your polish by dunking your feet in ice water for 30 to 60 seconds. Then coat with cuticle oil (or olive oil works too in a pinch) to help protect your polish from chips and dings.”
Right now you can order the Julep 2011 Summer Collection (all three colors for $42) during the pre-sale. They have just 100 pre-launch sets that will ship next week — everyone else has to wait until the official launch on June 15.
Julep supports women through Powered by Girlfriends — an ongoing program that donates $1 from the sale of every Julep Nail Vernis to organizations that empower and support women.
