Freedom Polymer Topcoat

I was first introduced to Julep’s Freedom Polymer Topcoat in the first few months as a Julep Maven. It came up as an add-on for $4.99 and I took it. It was love with the first manicure.

The black bottle containing Julep's Freedom Polymer top coat for nails.

This top coat comes in a black bottle and one of the recommendations to help it set quicker is to hold your painted nails up to a light source for 30 seconds. As far as top coats go I find it pretty thick — but that is not a bad thing as I find it fills in any crevices or imperfections I might have.

Within two to five minutes I find my nails are dryer and safer from smudging than with any other top coat (or nail polish) I have tried so far. Interestingly, comments I have received from others revolve around them looking like gel nails — but they are definitely easier to remove.

Regardless of how good it is I would not pay their asking price of $18 ($14.40 if you are a maven) per bottle — it just does not last that long (small bottles) to warrant the price in my opinion. So I try to stock up when it goes on sale.

I picked up 3 vials of top coat when it was on sale.

About Moe Wood

About a year ago I became the most obsessed with nail polish than any other period of my life. I decided I'd like to share this obsession with others and started this blog (I have been blogging elsewhere for over five years). I am not a nail art professional. I like to keep my nails relatively short and to keep to the basics when it comes to polish/design/art etc. I love all kinds of colors and do not believe in specific colors for specific ages, if you love it wear it!
