For the month of February, our CBBxManiMonday theme will be red and pink, BUT I will also try my hardest to incorporate my month-long theme of #LunarFebruary! This is the third year I have done this and I quite enjoy it! I’ve never been a huge Valentine’s Day person, though bath bombs are my weakness for this occasion so I make an exception with my annual Lush posts, but for those of you who don’t know, #LunarFebruary is in celebration of the Lunar New Year. This is where I focus on Asian brands and products and I have a great time with it because Asian products can be quite different from North American ones! Usually my posts end up being very skincare focused because Asians LOVE their skincare, but the technology and skintertainment value is WAY UP from what you can find in the North American market. For today’s post, I wanted to find an Asian nail polish brand and I actually don’t have very many until I started going through my drawers and found some untrieds from Korean, vegan, 10-free nail polish brand JINsoon!
Jin Soon is a real, Korean nail artist with three spa locations in New York City with a client base that includes regular Sarah Jessica Parker! Her polishes boast a two coat opacity (true) and long-lasting wear (not as long as I would have liked). I can usually get a decent 5 days with my left hand, but I was seeing chips on day 2 and 3 which was a bit disappointing. With regards to the art that happened here, I was SUPPOSED to have created a heart on each nail with the dots, but after overcorrecting, I was left with well, NOT a heart so this just became some random dotted gradient. Oh well!
