It's the nail necessities. The simple nail necessities.

Bare Necessities


Well-groomed nails give the appearance that you are put together, which is why we HATE having chipped nails. That, my friends, is why we LOVE these



We're going to give you the low-down on our favorite Julep nail products and what keeps our manis lasting as long as possible. 

For starters, there are 7 products we use religiously when doing our nails.

3. Cleanup Tool / Cuticle Pusher

4. Cuticle Clippers

5. Oxygen Smoothing Base Coat

emery board

 gets your nails in tip-top shape. 


Vanish Drops

helps you clean off your nails and cuticles. 


cuticle pusher

helps to get at those cuticles when using the vanishing drops. 


cuticle clippers

are used in a similar way, but help to get rid of overgrown cuticles for a cleaner looking mani.



ase Coat

will help your mani last a long time. Seriously, it has a matte-like texture that I swear by. I once ran out and used a regular base coat and my mani fell off the next day. 


Top Coat

helps to add shine and it dries quickly which helps to prevent smudges! 


Ta Da! Drops

are just a mani essential. It helps so that you can get back to your daily activities quickly. Who doesn't want that!? 

Since using this routine I have had amazing results with long lasting manis. 

P.S. we are NOT being paid for this post - we just really, 



like Julep.
