My nail polish collection, Fearless Beauty by Dermelect ME, is finally here! And I’m giving a set away (enter at the bottom of this post) to a lucky reader! But first, the backstory…
Two Fashion Weeks ago, I found myself color-hunting backstage. See, celebrity manicurist Elle (the lady who’s polish jobs you see on the covers of the world’s best beauty magazines, month after month) had asked me if I wanted to collaborate on a polish collection with Dermelect—and what beauty junkie doesn’t want to play mixologist and dream up with their own lacquer colors? (Am I right?) “Keep an eye out when you’re at Fashion Week,” she told me. “See if you find a color story that you like.” Sadly, everything I encountered was pastel-this and nude-that—pretty, but not my cup of tea. (After all, I do talk a heck of a lot about taking risks with your beauty and color choices!) So, I started sleuthing, looking inward and asking myself: What do I want to see in nail color? Because, frankly, I’ve seen it all.
What I came up with: the Fearless Beauty Collection by Dermelect ME (available at dermelect.com): a summer-fun group of creamy, sophisticated brights with powerful pigment payoff. With these four hues, my intent is twofold: 1) To bring you brave new colors that will inspire you to take fun, fearless shade risks with your nails, but also feel confident while doing so; and 2) To bring you these fun colors in a formula that actually strengthens your nails, which is exactly what Dermelect ME’s proprietary formula does!
Let’s break down this fearless foursome.
As anyone who knows me is well aware, I have a thing for blue—especially blue polish. The latest spate of cobalts has put me over the moon, but I wanted something a little different. Enter: Fearless, a rich cerulean that has both depth and brightness. It feels very oceanic, but also has a little dusty quality to it—and I am of the belief that greying-down a polish hue adds a level of sophistication, which makes it have a broader appeal. Wear Fearless on your tips and toes; try it as a French free edge or a bold half moon. As the name implies, you’ll feel fearless when you wear it!
Yellow polishes are riding the wave that blue and green once did: People are a little unsure of it as a nail tip tincture, but as more and more polish manufacturers offer wearable yellows, I think you’ll come around to it. Especially with Buzz-Worthy: It’s a super-bright pastel that has a beautiful creamy quality. It’s not too bumble-bee; it’s quite sporty and an amazing color to use as an accent or full-coverage mani. Two coats of this hot hue will give you a refreshingly fun look.
This jade is like its Fearless cerulean partner: It’s got that greyed-down depth, but also has a gorgeous brightness to it. In a sea of mint greens, emeralds and neons, Renegade offers you a chic alternative. I can see both business and creative types rocking this hue.
Bubblegum pink: Can you dig it? I’m telling you, there are tons of pinks out there—TONS!—and this one isn’t like any other. It’s bold and creamy, and it’s pigmented allure is undeniable. Like the three other more unconventional hues in this collection, Moxie is a no-holds-barred type of polish color. It demands attention. For summer, that’s what you want when you’re wearing pink lacquer: attention—and plenty of it.
Now for the good part: I am giving away a Dermelect ME Fearless Beauty collection PLUS Dermelect Rejuvenail Fortifying Nail & Cuticle Treatment (a $74 value) to one lucky reader! (Enter below.)
