Operations associate, Loren, has a thing for nails- and we can’t blame her. We love reading about new finishes and fun techniques, so we thought we’d give her a weekly slot on our blog to wax poetic about all things manicure (and pedicure!) related. Check back every week for Nailing It, Birchbox’s dedicated polish series.
Here on the East Coast, May is not off to such a flowery start. No matter, I have just the polish to keep things sunny: Amchoor from the Thakoon for NARS Collection. This brilliant yellow creme is perfectly on trend and is one of the hottest colors of the season.
Inspired by a tangy spice made from dry unripe mangoes, Amchoor is a favorite in Indian cooking and gives food a bright yellow pigment. It’s definitely a yummy shade and I can’t wait to slather my digits with this cheery lacquer!
Of course, I can’t help but mention the other gorgeous colors from this limited edition Thakoon for NARS collab. A rainbow of luminous shades, all of the hues are inspired by colors found at Indian spice markets. If bright yellow isn’t your thing, there’s always Lal Mirchi (Mandarin red), Anardana (Azalea pink), Ratin Jot (Orchid purple), Kutki (Powder blue), and Koliary (Cyan blue). Each bottle retails for $18 and is available on narscosmetics.com.
Which one of these shades will you be wearing this spring?
If brights aren’t your thing, go for a classic nude with RGB’s Vellum.
