Didn’t See This One Coming: Ann Taylor Gets Into The Polish Game
What perfumes are to celebrities, nail polish is to retailers: Everyone has to have one. The latest fashion brand to bite the lacquer bullet is Ann Taylor Loft, who has announced plans to launch a 15-shade collection come February.
From the looks of it, there are no major surprises in terms of color selection. Like the brand itself, the hues offer a variety of solid staples—think a classic red, an obligatory navy blue, and, of course, a range of neutral beiges.
Expected to retail for a mere $6.50 a bottle, we’re looking to get our hands on these colors ASAP. (And is it just us, or are the bottle reminiscent of American Apparel’s polishes?)
Our favorite polishes that you can buy right now? Ruffian all the way!

This Polish Belongs on the “Top Shelf”
Lately I’ve been reaching for my heavy wool coat instead of my lightweight leather jacket. Yes, dear reader, it can only mean one thing: Winter is officially upon us. With the seasonal shift in mind, I’ve decided it’s high time I revamp my nail polish game, too. While I loved the bright and neon polishes I saw on nails all over NYC this past summer, I’m ready to embrace this season’s warmer neutrals and dark, vampy hues.
Right now, my go-to shade is Color Club’s Top Shelf, a shimmering copper hue from the brand’s recently launched Cocktail Collection. It has a sleek, mirror-like finish that makes it look like you’ve dipped your tips in a pot of molten metal—but in good way. For an extra dose of cool, layer an assortment slim, colorful, and beaded bracelets, like these from Sashi.
Friday night here I come! What polish are you wearing this weekend?
