The New York Times just had an article about the fact that people are choosing brighter colors for their wardrobes this season. Yes, even New Yorkers who tend towards black and grey. And to compliment the trend, nail polish companies have put forth a veritable rainbow of colors for fingers and toes. Check out the latest looks from FACE Stockholm. Their “three-free” Nail Polish ($12.00) has no DPT, no Tulene and no Formaldehyde. You’ll like the luxurious finish and the fact that these won’t chip unless you really work your hands and nails..hard! TIP: Add a top coat with sun protection to keep all your nail polish shades, no matter which brand, looking fresher, longer….especially once those sunny beach days come around.
I have always loved the look of the FACE Stockholm packaging, too. The minimalistic chic makes me feel like I’ve really indulged in something special. The polish colors are rich, intense, and apply beautifully. And I can’t help but love the chic, rectangular, Nail Polish bottles that showcase the beautiful colors within. On a practical note, they also stack neatly against one another on a shelf. And, that’s a good thing, because you are going to want a LOT of these pretty colors!
Face Stockholm doesn’t provide cute-sy names for it’s shades. They label them simply, with numbers. New shades run from classics #106, a rich, deep, creamy coral, and #124, a bright, clear, warm red, to a classy, modern, dark teal (#104), an Easter-Egg opaque lilac (#104), and a bright, creamy, Spring Green (#123) uple full spectrum of sheer iridescence, deep color, glitter and treatments to take you from classic to cutting edge with just a few brush strokes.
The photo above shows all the new colors. There are plenty more offering a wide range of sheer iridescence, deep color, glitter and treatments on the FACE Stockholm web site and in their lovely boutiques (it’s like being a kid in a candy store…too much fun!)
