It feels like just yesterday I was attending the preview for Jin Soon Choi’s debut nail polish collection, and now we’re already onto her second collection! Botanical Flowers, Jin’s Spring 2013 A La Mode Collection, is full of vibrant hues found in local New York Gardens. With five polishes in the collection, the shades range from a pretty bright mint to an electric blue to a beautiful lilac. Plus, each was named by top runway models after their favorite botanical flowers. Clever!
“Botanical flowers is a reflection of my love for the arts and background in high fashion,” says Jin Soon Choi. “The vivid pigments that I discovered during a visit to Monet’s Garden exhibit at the New York Botanical Gardens influenced my new colors.”
The Botanical Flowers Collection is also 5-Free and was created without toxic chemicals such as formaldehyde, toluene, DPB, and camphor. The polishes also contain high-tech polymers and resins ensuring longer wear and an extended shelf life. UV filters in each polish protect against fading and yellowing of color. These polishes are absolutely perfect for spring and are a bit on the pastel end, although Blue Iris and Coral Peony are super punchy! Full shades below:
- Blue Iris (deep electric blue, named by Saskia de Brauw)
- Coral Peony (hot coral pink, named by Vanessa Axente)
- French Lilac (light plum lavender, named by Meghan Collison)
- Tea Rose (light coral, named by Fei Fei Sun)
- Poppy Blue (bright mint blue, named by Tati Cotliar)
