Refinery 29 is an online magazine, and one of my daily reads for what’s going on in the world of fashion and beauty. One part of their site is Reserve, which features their shopping picks (often at a discount). This season, for the first time, Reserve is offering several product collaborations — 12 team efforts from Refinery and a dozen of their favorite brands.
Proof that their editors really have their fingers (and toes?) on the pulse of current trends: one of those collaborations is a set of six ooh-pretty! nail polishes. The polishes are Color Club (but the colors were picked by Refinery editors).
Snow Pixie is a purpled grey-silver foil. Rolling in the Deep is a really, really dark, black-purple-grape creme. Punch Drunk Red is a bright, shimmery, Christmas-ornament, candy-apple red. Swan Lake is a surprisingly nifty, shimmery, pearlescent ballet beige-peach-pink. Wine Cooler is a beet red-violet with deepset sparkles. Happy Hunter is a blued-green forest/spruce/hunter creme… and the first of this collection on my nails.
It struck me that Happy Hunter is the green analog to the deep blue I’ve been obsessing over the last few months. I look best in blue-greens (not yellow-greens), and I like that Happy Hunter looks even more blue indoors.
The Winter Warrior set is $29 (and it ships for free!).
