Jin Soon Moxie

Jin Soon, nail polish, nail care, pink, cosmetics, Did you ever think you’d wear a muted pink polish in the fall? I know, this shade is very spring-y, but believe me, it works. Imagine this lavender pink on your fingertips with a big, chunky black sweater, jeans, and some cute booties. It’s a really great shade for every day or date night. It’s also a great choice for when you wear open-toed shoes!

Wet N Wild 1 Step Wonder Gel in Pretty Peas

nail polish, beauty, cosmetics, nail care, brand, I’ve seen these bottles at the drugstore but really didn’t know what they were all about. Turns out, I was missing out on an easy, 1-step gel formula that doesn’t require a top coat or lamp. Pretty Peas, the color of the label, is a cool pastel blue that’s totally unexpected but wearable in the fall and winter. How pretty would this color be with a black half-moon?

Nudes give you that perfectly polished look without looking like you tried too hard.

Smith & Cult Nail Polish in Subnormal

nail polish, nail care, perfume, cosmetics, hand, I practically fainted when I first saw Smith & Cult’s nail polish. It’s one of the prettiest nail polish bottles I’d seen and the colors were amazing. This periwinkle color is a fantastic option for ladies who aren’t into gray polishes. The powdery blue hue is reminiscent of gray but just a little brighter. And although it might appear to be sheer in the bottle, it’s really opaque and glossy, two great qualities in a polish!
