Great polish Gel like finish

By Payton80

Verified Buyer

Comments about Julep Take A Breather Oxygen Nail Treatment:

This is a fantastic polish. I received it in my Living Large Mystery box and it was one of the few items I really liked from it. This has a beautiful gel like finish that make your natural nails look AMAZING! Its like your nails better then the best they could be. Just get this when you can and you won't be disappointed. Its also fool proof and goes on super easy, I put it on in less then a minute and it dried after like 2 mins. Perfect Love it. Will be buying the sheer pink when this runs out.

White stains?

Best Uses

  • Daily Use

Comments about Julep Take A Breather Oxygen Nail Treatment:

I use the product with Nail Tek under as basecoat and OPI topcoat. It is easy to apply and goes on smoothly. I have used this for 2 years. My only concern is that after prolonged wear, my nail is now being left with a white stained. A few months ago, I switched to OPI and Zoya (same base and topcoat) and after a month the white stain disappeared. Wondering if anyone has had this problem?

Amazing!! Helped my nails grow so long 100% worth it

By HC

from Pa

Comments about Julep Take A Breather Oxygen Nail Treatment:

I love this stuff so much!! It seriously helped my nails grow so long and healthy that people ask me all the time if they are fake. I do 4 coats which sounds like a lot I know but it allows the color to opaque and it dries really fast. I've recommended it to all my friends:))

    Comments about Julep Take A Breather Oxygen Nail Treatment:

    Begin nurse, I saw that I had a common profession with one of the users (I might have even met her in my past traveling positions), since we both work in the operating room. So being that I wash my hands constantly, I decided to try it.

      Ruins nails.

      By bigslacker

      from bellevue wa

      Comments about Julep Take A Breather Oxygen Nail Treatment:

      I use other strengthening nail treatments and they work so much better (Nail perfector by Zoya and Perfect formula ink gel coat). While I like the color (2 coats) of Julep oxygen treatment after 2 uses (within a week or so) my nails started to split at the ends like crazy. PASS!

      I love this nail treatment. I have the giant size in sheer orchid and sheer pink. Both colors are lovely. I keep my nails short and this treatment polish keeps them healthy and beautiful.

      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.

        • 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?
          Asked on 1/5/2018 by Angela from Monaca, PA

          1 answer

          • Brand Expert

            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!

            A:

            That's great to hear you saw immediate results! If you don't have the Julep polish remover, we recommend an acetone-free polish remover to minimize any drying of nails.

            A:

            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.

            A:

            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.
