Sally Hansen Colorfoil Collection ($7.99 each)
Metallic iridescence doesn’t stop at the catwalk, or during summer. You can sport Sally Hansen’s new Colorfoil nail makeup collection all year round, because some shades like Minted Metal (above) are stately yet wonderfully subtle at the same time. This is your Jeff Koons of nail lacquers: it’s sporty, whimsical, and with on-trend shades. It features electrifying pigments with aluminum leaf to give you some serious theatrics.
COVERGIRL XL Nail Lacquer ($7.49 each)
A UV nail lacquer without the light and curing? It’s possible with COVERGIRL’s latest XL nail gel, a jumbo-sized bottle that gives you that thick, glossy, almost-a-Louboutin-heel look without the extra fuss. It is designed to give your nail reflective shine for up to 7 days and comes in 9 shades. Shown above is the swatch in Plump Up Plum.
FABY Italian Nail Couture ($18 each)
A brand new professional Italian nail care brand makes its splash in the US with its â€œfive-freeâ€ collection. The brand includes the Classics Collection (the permanent line of lacquers) and has a Bergdorf Goodman-sized collection of 315 skus with over 175 colors, and 45 more coming. In other words, there’s a color for every dress in your wardrobe and then some. The lacquer is thick without being goopy, and the brush control is excellent. The line is carried in high-end salons, boutiques, and online. The swatch above is Red Carpet.
