It's a well-known fact that we have a somewhat unhealthy obsession with nail polish. From our days of DIY nail art to our current fascination with texture, there's nothing we love more than a pretty lacquer. So, when Rescue Beauty Lounge founder, and all-around nail spirit animal, Ji Baek approached us about teaming up to create a line of Refinery29 nail polishes, there may have been cartwheeling, screams of joy, and one or two instances of fainting. Our answer, obviously, was, “Hell, yes. ”
Baek has long been one of our nail idols — not just for the amazing things she does with color, but also for her skill of interpreting art, fashion, and feelings into some seriously kick-ass polishes. She asked each department — beauty, fashion, wellness, news and entertainment, shopping, creative, and tech — to tell her what its dream color would be; one that defined who they were as a team. We delivered, and Baek created what is essentially Refinery29 in a bottle.
After seeing the beauty of this line, we knew we couldn't keep it to ourselves. That's right: Each of these gorgeous bottles is now on sale at Rescue Beauty Lounge, meaning you can get your hot little hands on the one (or ones, no judgment) that sings to your heart (obviously, that's the beauty team's, right?). And, because we're real generous-like, we're also giving a few lucky readers the chance to win a full collection of their very own. Yup, just “Like” us on Facebook, and then leave us a note in the comments telling us which polish you like best and why, and we'll pick 25 winners to gift the entire collection to.
So, click through to see each polish and hear how the line came together. We won't blame you if you accidentally drool on your keyboard when you see these — we did.
