From Julep:

Summer may be winding down soon, but the future looks brighter than ever. This month’s illuminated collection captures the beaming energy of the season starting with the launch of our new under-eye brightener with skincare ingredients built right in. And of course, we had to round it out with a high-shimmer polish collection in saturated colors inspired by dreamy, exotic getaways to faraway lands.

Get ready to see the end of summer in a whole new light!

Shining, shimmering, splendid. This month’s glistening nail polish collection takes you on a wild ride with full-spectrum colors that capture the richness of late-summer sunsets. Go bold or go barely-there—either way, just go and see where the magic takes you.
