Nothing special

Comments about Julep Take A Breather Oxygen Nail Treatment:

My nails were splitting and chipping after the first day wearing this. Tried it a few more times and it doesn't seem to be doing anything special for my nails.

      Comments about Julep Take A Breather Oxygen Nail Treatment:

      I was looking for something to strengthen my thin, easily chipped and splitting nails. Two employees recommended this product for my needs. I applied a coat but it started chipping off at the ends on the 2nd day. It also contributed to quicker split layers on my nails causing me to think it actually dried my nails making them more prone to break down. I would not use the product again on thin weak nails; worse than using nothing.

        I am a Registerd Nurse and wash my hands hundreds of times during a shift. I like my nails to have a natural shine and be protected from so much water use. I LOVE this product. I apply 2 coats and it dries quickly and stays on for weeks without showing evidence of chipping. My hands are constantly seen as I care for sick newborns. I feel better using this product. I believe that it has helped prevent chipping and encouraged growth. I have only used the Sheer Pink and love the natural glow it creates.

          This purchase was a gift. However, I have the Sheer Pink AND the Sheer Beige. I love the idea of having a shine on my nails yet this is an oxygen nail treatment. It allows my nails to breath, giving them a break from other polishes.

                • Q:

                  CanI use this over polish? Would this help if used over polish? I didn't think it would since it wouldn't penetrate through the nail. Do you have a product that can help but can be used over polish?

                    A:

                    We don't recommend Oxygen Nail Treatment for use over (or under) polish. And you are correct, if used over polish, it won't penetrate the nail and will not function well as a top coat!

                    For use in conjunction with polish, we recommend Be Strong (Oxygen Nail Therapy). This is a clear product and should be used as a base coat underneath your polish so that the benefits of the product can directly penetrate the nail. This can also be used as a standalone treatment without polish, just like Take a Breather (Oxygen Nail Treatment).

                    Enjoy!

                    Take A Breather Oxygen was formulated as a nail treatment, and not intended to be used as a polish base coat. You may apply Julep nail color on top of Take A Breather, however it will affect the longevity of the polish color wear.

                    Take a Breather Oxygen Nail Treatment a nail "makeup" that encourages strong, healthy growth, however, it is not intended to be used as a nail whitener.

                    Take a Breather features Oxygen Technology which allows your nail beds to breathe, while giving you the look of classic manicure and disguising the appearance of yellowing. Take a Breather also promotes stronger nails, which limits splitting, peeling and brittleness.
